Honoring Our Unknown Heroes in Unmarked Graves

June, 2, 15
This week President Barack Obama awarded two dead US World War 1 army heroes, a black and Jewish who were denied medals because of racial discrimination, the Medal of Honour, the highest military honor there, yet here we think 1986 is too far.

The Useful Things Ugandans Don’t Learn

Africa Must Learn the Ways of The Wolves

May, 8, 15                    
Events of the last few weeks in Burundi may seem at first sight to be innocent political struggles by the citizens for genuine adherence to constitutionalism, democracy and the rule of law against their overbearing and greedy leaders. However, looking back to Western imperialism and Africa over the last five decades, we should not be surprised, that today’s penetration of Africa and its governments by Western foreign funded Non-Government Organisations is in vogue.

Mugisha Muntu’s Maths Don’t Add Up

Having been strangulated for the last three years, Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) President Maj. Gen. (rtd) Greg Mugisha Muntu on Monday emerged from the woods in an angry and dispirited tone to ‘unveil’ the “FDC Policy agenda for Uganda’s Leap Forward,” which got gullible supporters cheering.
