Another youth dies from gunshot by police

RIP Robert Muhumuza. In your honour, the rest of the Ugandan population shall soldier on TILL VICTORY COME. The bullet from the gun of a Museveni terrorist gang-member has claimed the life another Ugandan child. The other young victim of Museveni’s Life-Presidency murder mission in Rukungiri, our Late Comrade Edson Nasasira, has just been buried, but, already, Museveni and his terror gangs must be celebrating the demise of another innocent soul. Museveni and his terror gangs are also celebrating the illegal detention of the leaders of People’s Revolutionary Struggle, whoRead More

Abim hospital operates in the dark

Fear grips patients and medical workers in Abim Hospital whenever there is a power blackout. The Hospital that is dependent on hydroelectricity power is left with no option other than using lamps and phone torches. When this reporter visited the Hospital over the weekend, empty lamps stood on tables in the wards without paraffin since there was no power. Both the attendants and their patients were deep asleep to catch up with the lost long night’s sleep as they spent the dark night watching over themselves. Ms Joyce Awili, aRead More

Age limit debate exposes as one man party

It is clear now that President Museveni is the NRM party and the NRM party is all about him and without him, there is no NRM. Here is why. In 2005, a referendum was held purportedly to establish whether Ugandans wanted a restoration of a multiparty political dispensation. This was after many years of brutalising and restricting political parties under the Movement System, which was actually a one-party rule. Having put up a spirited fight , the Uganda People’s Congress and the Democratic Party refused to participate in the referendumRead More


WHO’s Tedros to appoint Mugabe goes to show why Africa will remain dark continent for decades

Robert Mugabe had his ‘Des van Rooyen moment’ last week when he was briefly appointed as a WHO Goodwill Ambassador, then had the position rescinded on Sunday after a huge international outcry. But was the WHO thinking when it appointed him, asks HEALTH-E’s Kerry Cullinan. Why did the Health Organisation’s (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus appoint the Zimbabwean despot, Robert Mugabe, as a “goodwill ambassador” last Thursday? Clearly unprepared for the torrent of protest from organisations and governments, Tedros “rescinded” the appointment on Sunday “in the best interests of theRead More

Ten traits of likeable people – Emotional Intelligence

Many people succumb to the mistaken belief that being likeable comes from natural, unteachable traits that belong only to a lucky few — the good looking, the fiercely social, and the incredibly talented. It’s easy to fall prey to this misconception. When I speak to smaller audiences, I often ask them to describe the most likeable people they have ever worked with. People inevitably ignore innate characteristics (intelligence, extraversion, attractiveness, and so on) and instead focus on qualities that are completely under people’s control, such as approachability, humility, and positivity.Read More
