Youths Urged to be Innovative, Creative and embrace ICT, and Agriculture.

Youths have been urged to embrace Agriculture, ICT innovative and creativity as a tool to fight against unemployment in Uganda.

The revelation was made by Fred Ngabirano, the comissioner of Youths and children in the ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development (MGLSD) while giving his remarks during the launch of the National Youths Manfesto 2021-2026 spearhead Youth Coalition on Electoral Democracy in Uganda (YCED), and other Yiuth-focused civil society organaisations (CSO’s) such as, Action Aid , African youths development Link among others aiming to highlight key policy priorities/demand by youths to government , political parties, and candidates ahead of and beyond of the 2021 general elections.

Ngabirano Says that Agriculture, ICT are the key main sources of income and if they are well managed, it can be a chain of employment opportunity through job creation instead of job seeking.
“Youths should be creative and innovative while puting into practice what they have studied in various institutions of learning hence income and employment generation and desist from being spoon feeding, He said”.
He adds that, currently Uganda’s national unemployment rate is 9.2% whereby unemployment rate within youths aged 18-30 years constitutes 13.4% but all this can be curbed down through ICT, and Agriculture together with innovation and creation, however he appealed to parents to get back to their role of good parenting because this has costed the country alot due to the fact that many chiy grow up when they are desparate.

Globally, the united nations defines a youth as being between the ages of 15 and 24 years old, the African youth charter, which is a regional framework, defines youth as any individual between 15-35 years of age while the Uganda national youth policy stipulates that the youth bracket encompasses all persons aged 15 to 30 years and recognizes that youth are a heterogeneous group. Constitutionally, a youth in Uganda is a person between the ages of 18-30 years.

In 2014, Uganda’s population was estimated at 34.9 million and is currently estimated at 41.6 million people. With a growth rate of 3% per annum coupled with a high fertility rate of 5.4 children per woman, Uganda has the third fastest growing population in the world. About 32.4 million people (78% of the population) is 30 years and below with an estimated 12 million young people (15-30 years).

Uganda’s youth face several social challenges including poverty and poor health. There are high rates of teenage pregnancies because the median age for sexual debut is 16.4 years. 24% of girls (below 20 years of age) in Uganda are mothers or pregnant with their first, sometimes second child. Many factors contribute to high teenage pregnancies, including social pressures, the low status of women, religious pressures, unemployment, and lack of equitable access to family planning methods, including contraceptive information, education, and services for the adolescents.

Obedgiu Samuel, deputy national youth coordinator NUP northern Uganda commended government for a fairly respectable legal, institutional and normative framework for youth inclusion in decision and policy making process. However, youth participation in governance and decision making is affected by limited access to relevant and timely information, limited accountability of leaders to the young people, inadequate capacity and leadership skills for youth leaders, highly commercialised politics including nomination fees for LCV candidates at UGX1m while member of parliament nomination fee was increased from UGX200,000 to 3,000,000 and the presidential nomination fee was increased increased to UGX 20,000,000. Such fees are too high and push out many youth that harbour aspirations.

Nakabira Nashiba, the African youth development link programs officer says the youth manifesto (2021-2026) was developed through a nation-wide consultative process involving youth leaders and youths in their diversities to arrive at the most pressing issues that require urgent attention to strengthen youth development and participation in governance

Confirmed. Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata Batte is Dead

The head of Da’awa in Uganda (Kibuli faction) Shiekh Nuhu Muzaata is dead.

The renown vocal Muslim cleric breathed his last on Friday.

The development has been confirmed by Salam TV.

“Inallillahi waa ina ilayihi rajioon, Sheikh Muzaata confirmed dead. May Allah forgive him all his shortcomings,” the TV station posted on its Facebook page.

His body is currently at International Hospital Kampala (IHK).

News about Muzaata’s death started making rounds on Thursday until when Imam Idi Kasozi dispelled the rumour.

“Sheikh Muzaata is alive. I have just spoken to him 5 minutes ago,” Imam Kasozi. a renowned Muslim scholar said on yesterday.

For months now, Muzaata has been feeling unwell but the situation allegedly got out of hand when one of his wives Kulthum Nabunya moved out of their marital home in Kawempe after a bitter fight with the former.

“At the beginning of August, he barked at her when visitors were there and this humiliated her. She packed her things and left the home and this deteriorated Muzaata’s health diminishing his immunity because he couldn’t take care of himself for the last 4 months,” a family source said.

Friends and relatives had advised Kulthum to quickly make up her mind and go back to look after her husband.

Kulthum who works for Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and Muzaata have three children together. And it was Muzaata’s efforts that enabled her to get the KCCA job during the time of Jennifer Musisi.

May his soul Rest In Eternal Peace.

And to know: Uganda Biblically Historically and prophetically the beginning and The End of God’s works on The Earth. Read Acts 10:3. He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. In comparison with revelation 10:1-2. And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: and he had in his hand a little scroll open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth.

The angel of the Lord gave me the book and when I received the book from his hands: Read Revelation 10:9. And I went unto him, Give me the little scroll. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your stomach bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey

CSOS call on export credit agencies to stop support for dirty fossil energy developments in Uganda

EGI calls on developed countries to stop support through Export Credit Agencies (ECAs) for
fossil fuel developments and large hydro-power dams in Uganda that undermine the paris agreement, aggravate climate change, destroy the environment, heighten human rights violations and leave local communities disenfranchised.

EGI working with four environmental organizations from Ghana, Nigeria, Togo and Uganda, in cooperation with Friends of the Earth Netherlands and Both ENDS has released a report which reveals that since the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement, rich countries have provided almost 50 times as much support through ECAs for fossil fuel related projects less for
clean energy projects in the four African countries.

In the report titled “A Just Energy Transition for Africa? Mapping the impacts of ECAs active in the energy sector in Ghana, Nigeria, Togo and Uganda”, it is revealed that rich countries insured energy projects with a total value of 11 billion US dollars and more than half
of this export support is related to fossil fuels. Only 1% went to sustainable renewable energy.

Export credit agencies provide insurances and guarantees to companies doing business abroad.
People and nature Part of this research is also based on reports from local communities in Uganda that have been affected by the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) which is supported by the UK ECA
UKEF. People have had to leave their land and water they depend on to pave way for this fossil fuel project.

They are hardly compensated for this, with many ending up living in poverty.
“Such projects have left people worse off than they were, these are communities that already have to deal with impacts of climate change such as food insecurity “, said Samuel Aede from EGI. “These developed countries must rethink their ECA related support towards sustainable energy projects”.

Beneconsila Busingye widow of 56 had to move to pave way for oil developments in Uganda.
“I first had to leave my land for the construction of the airport for the oil developments. Access
to the same land that we were given in compensation, was next cut off by the government because of the EACOP oil pipeline developments. After my husband died, the government did not want to compensate me. I never signed anything, yet all of a sudden I am no longer allowed to use my land. How can I feed my children now that my husband is dead

In line with the Paris Climate Agreement
“Despite international climate agreements and national climate ambitions, export credit
agencies continue to support fossil energy projects abroad on a large scale,” says Niels
Hazekamp of Both ENDS. “This undermines the Paris Climate Targets. Export credit agencies hardly play a role in insuring green, sustainable projects. This report once again makes us
wonder whether ECAs are able to make the changes that are urgently needed.”
Dependent on fossil
By supporting the expansion of the fossil sector in these African countries, export credit agencies ensure that economies remain dependent on fossil fuels. “And that in a world that is
increasingly switching to renewable energy,” says Isabelle Geuskens of Milieudefensie. “Those
countries risk ending up with huge debts and fossil infrastructure for decades to come, while in the future the demand for their oil and gas will decrease substantially.

The Dutch export credit
agency Atradius DSB already warns of the dangers of huge debts in African countries that are
economically dependent on fossil fuels, but at the same time it contributes to this dependency by continuing to support fossil fuels in these countries.

Export credit agencies for a green and just transition
With the report, the organisations want to raise some fundamental questions about the role of
export credit agencies in supporting dirty energy in Africa. Hazekamp: “The vision that export credit agencies have of sustainability is highly questionable. Our research shows, for example,
that large hydropower plants, to which most of the other half of all export support for the energy
sector goes, continues to be referred to as ¨green¨ and ¨sustainable: ¨. However, these reservoirs also emit a lot of methane, which contributes to climate change. The dams also affect the natural
environment and are linked to human rights violations”.
The report calls on the governments to stop supporting fossil projects via their ECAs. The
environmental organisations also ask these governments to take a critical look at whether the energy projects supported by ECAs in the south are able to contribute to a just and green energy

To the security agencies
The council also revealed that, while we imagine the dike ma faced by the security agencies, they called for actions that honor the rights and dignity of all Ugandans irrespective if their political affiliations. The army have breached Article 209 that states that the army will cooperate with civilian authority in emergency situations and in case of natural disaster like Covid-19.

The council also noted that, the police were in breach of the Covid-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and article 211(3) that stipulates that the police force shall be nationalistic, patriotic, professional, disciplined, competent and productive; and its members shall be citizens of Uganda of good character.

Conclusively, the council also urged candidates who are vying for the various political offices to take personal responsibility to guide the population on their safety with relevant information so that they are able to make informed choices in a safe environment.

Apostle Ronald Responds Back to Tamale Mirundi’s Obscene Language to him Over his political revelation message to M7

Apostle Hope Witness of Full knowledge of God international ministries based at Namasuba Zzana Wakiso district has responded back to president Museveni’s adviser also a fan Tamale Mirundi over the use of abusive and obscene language to him accusing him of revealing a political message to H.E Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni, Uganda, Africa and the entire world a head of the forthcoming general elections in Uganda 2021.

Recently, Apostle Ronald Hope Witness revealed a political victory message to H.E President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Uganda, Africa and the entire world saying that, on 02/09/2020, he was visited by “God” through Angel Gabriel with a message saying , president Museveni is now old and advanced in age, but he has not yet finished God’s work and mission of preparing Uganda under peace and justice to enable and proclaim His worldwide promised call which is to be in Uganda the pearl of Africa’s crown.
“president Museveni will overwhelmingly win the forthcoming general elections if all goes well because he still have a lot to do in accordance to God’s message and mission revealed to me,” he added.

He says that, on Wednesday 02/09/2020 at 5:00am in the morning, God visited him through Angel Gabriel and waked him from the sleep and God commenced talking to him while saying, Uganda why do you cast off the good thing to choose the Bad?. See your enemy is overtaking you.” I mean Satan the Devil through some of your neighboring countries and some countries from far away.”.

Now a one Tamale Mirundi was recently called on a phone in a one radio talk show to comment over Apostle Ronald Hope Witness’s revelation message, whereby Tamale Mirundi replied via a phone call using abusive and obscene word asking for a presenter to tell, Apostle Ronald Hope Witness that he is like a “Vagina”, this is a female private body part between her legs.

In an interview with Apostle Ronald Hope Witness over Tamale Kirundi’s decayed language, he said that, according him, the word used by Tamale Mirundi can’t hurt him because it is like any other human body parts.
“I can’t say that the word used by Tamale Mirundi is bad because as we males we marry wives looking for that part, during birth each and every body pass through that body part in case all goes well,” he said.

Apostle Ronald adds that, what can hurt him is, when some one tells him to go to “Hell, Darkness among others in that category thus urges Tamale Mirundi to think twice before he reacts for proper guidance.

Apostle Ronald concludes by saying that every wherever is said by an individual should be reflected and quoted in either holy books of Quran or Bible for proper guidance and teaching instead a meaningless speaking and talking by various individuals just only to serve their interests.
