  • Kasese Massacre Was Just An Episode

    When Ugandans woke up on the morning of November 26, 2016, all they heard, read and saw in the news were dead bodies, a burnt palace, and video clips of the Rwenzururu King, His Highness, Charles Mumbere arrested and dragged into custody like an ordinary chicken thief.

  • Trumps Victory and the Uganda connection

    Unthinkable as it seemed at the beginning of the American presidential campaigns, Donald John Trump is the president- elect of the powerful United States of America.
