Climate-Related Disasters: Why We Need to Protect Wetlands at all Costs

The world has recently been witnessing catastrophes ranging from long drought spells to flash floods and storms that have left tens of thousands dead and millions displaced, and this has been highly attributed to human activity, which is fueling global warming. Whereas Uganda has not been severely affected by climate-related disasters, the country remains at a high risk of experiencing them given the rate at which the environment is being destroyed by intensified forest destruction and wetland encroachment. Whenever Ugandans watch...

Uganda’s Opposition has no Moral Authority to Oppose NRM

The ongoing crackdown on corrupt Members of Parliament (MPs) has exposed the dirty deals, double standards, and hypocritical tendencies of the opposition parties and their leaders in Uganda. Over time, the opposition leaders have been pretending to be pro-people and disguising themselves as fighting the anti-development vices that are against the survival of the common Ugandan. They have gone ahead to brand NRM as a corrupt party that has no will to fight corruption and usher in development. In the turn...

LOOTERS AUDACITY: UK Varsity Lends Uganda their Own Artifacts Looted during Colonial Rule

The highest level of contempt mankind has lived to witness. The...

Bobi Wine Avoids LGBTQ+ Issues Amid Political Tensions

The National Unity Platform Party President, Robert Kyagulanyi, commonly known as Bobi Wine, has found himself grappling with a delicate dilemma regarding the homosexual community. On the one hand, he faces the reality that a significant portion of the Ugandan population does not support and embrace the vice of LGBTQ, and on the other hand, shunning them will result in losing crucial international funding and support. Bobi Wine, while appearing on Newsroom Africa, a South African television show, was asked...

NUP LEADERSHIP SCHOOL: Bobi Wine should be the First to Enroll for Leadership Skills

The National Unity Platform (NUP) party has opened a leadership school at their former head offices in Kamwokya. The school is aimed at teaching political and socio-economic disciplines to NUP leaders and other Ugandans. NUP and its president, Bobi Wine (Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu), are known promoters and champions of the politics of gangs, violence, and sectarianism. They have exhibited the highest level of lack of values and principles, with their president accused of funding thugs to abuse and insult the...

Political Darkness Hits Besigye’s Katonga Camp Amidst Strong Resistance in Teso, Bugisu

The consultative meetings by the Forum for Democratic Change Katonga’s faction in Teso and others regions have hit a snag after the delegates failed to show up. Col. (Rtd.)

They started from Mbarara, Kabale, Hoima, and other districts where a big turnout was registered.
