  • Who Loses When There Is Beef In The Music Industry

      By Emar Okanokodi In late 2016 a meeting was held in a boardroom of the office of the Gulu Residence District Commissioner (RDC) chaired by the RDC himself, Okot Santos Lapolo. In attendance were the District Police Commander, religious, cultural and political leaders and musicians. In mid-2016, a renowned comedian and singer in Acholi […]


  • No place for a Third Force in Polarized Uganda

      The idea of a “third force” in Uganda’s body politics is improbable. Such an idea compounds the ideological confusion in our politics. The third force idea appeals as an excuse for laggards or an easy escape route for those who are afraid of dramatic change to the politics upon which they have derived privileges. […]


  • Harnessing Africa: Is Neoliberalism working for Africa?

    The global news of black African youths in their prime being traded in an open slave in Libya was a harsh reality. The resurgence of slave markets is probably another failure of neo-liberalism. Where liberal democracy and liberal rights should be the mainstay of a liberal society we find its proponents subverting liberal democracy by […]


  • Museveni Is a Delicate Guest at The Acholi Cultural Festival

    On Saturday I met a friend- Awel Uwihanganye whose NGO (CEED) is at the centre of organising the Gulu Marathon.

  • Drop The Spy Conspiracy, POA and MM could make FDC complete

    Competitions tend to bring the best and the worst in contemporaries but, attaching the spy claim on Muntu will hurt FDC the most. FDC adherents must stop labelling Muntu an NRM mole.

  • My Glowing Tribute To Dr Kizza Besigye’s Branding

    A   few political commentators tend to under-state the efforts of Dr. Kizza Besigye (KB) in reclaiming the political space we have today.

Oppressed people often adapt to their state of oppression by submitting or emulating the ways of their Oppressors. KB’s […]


  • Uganda’s Education System Is Entrenching Social And Economic Inequality

      Writing in the daily monitor recently, Mr Rinus van Klinken, the SNV Uganda Dairy programme manager advocates that “Parents should contribute to children’s school feeding.” He notes in the articles that, “In 2016, SNV through its dairy project funded by the Dutch government launched a national school milk pilot to get 5,000 school going […]


  • Gulu Should Embark On Attracting High Quality Investments

    In the last decade, Gulu has experienced peace from twenty years of senseless genocide. This peace has proffered for youths to gather the debris of life to build a society of hopeful individuals. Many have ventured into social or grassroot journalism and local transportation. Using social media, youths have brought Gulu to the world, and […]



  • Museveni’s Role in regional Forced Displacement is understated

    Africa with a landmass of 30m Km2, twice the size of Europe, and with a population of 1.2billion inhabitants, is also the continent most afflicted with preventable incidences of violence and natural disasters that cause displacements. The consequences of violence alone, on displacement and human life are remarkable. The 2017 Global Report on Internal Displacement […]
