 The three musicians who are also the most trending at the moment with quite a number of hits lately have already shot the adverts which are receiving massive airplay.

  

 This is the first time the three artistes are working together and as part of the endorsement deal, they have to perform at the company events, encourage their fans to join the telecom company and appear on most company logos.

 This is the beauty of about being a musician because you can be broke at one moment and then the next, you receive a call and get an endorsement deal worth millions of shillings.

 And then some people continue saying that music is done by thugs who are failures in life.

Killer Gang Vows to Assassinate Prof Ddumba and the Entire Makerere University Council

Campus Bee - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 11:03
Prof Ddumba and the entire Makerere University council are targeted

Calling themselves “M40 BATTALIAN,” the new killer gang in Kampala, in a notice circulated on social media, has vowed to assassinate a list of VIPs, including the Makerere Vice Chancellor, Prof Ddumba Ssentamu.

The Killer Gang also obtained phone numbers of some of the people targeted and directly sent them whatsapp messages directly making these threats. You can’t easily dismiss it as propaganda because as Police publicist Kasingye recognized in a phone interview, these same gangs have previously made good their threats.

The document shows that all Makerere governing council members are being targeted in the upcoming spate of high profile assassinations. No specific dates are given for execution of the threats.

The targeted Makerere Council bosses are many including Chairman Eng Wana Etyem, his Vice Irene Ovonji and other members like Bruce Kabasa, Thormas Tayebwa, Doreen Nyanjura, Elizabeth Gabona, Dr. Sarah Ssali, Prof Ddumba-Sentamu and others.

Other targeted government figures include Lands Minister Betty Amongin and her deputies including Isaac Musumba, Chris Baryomunsi and Parcis Namuganza. Also on the list are Energy Minister Irene Muloni and her deputies including Simon Dujang and Peter Lokeris.

Police speaks out

Police publicist Kasingye said the force had received these anonymous letters targeting VIPs and both overt and covert steps were being taken to remedy the situation.

“Yes there is increased deployment of patrol vehicles and other methods that may not be visible but you just know we are on top of the situation as police,” Kasingye said.

He added this strategy of using such letters to scare the populace has been on and police has gradually been arresting some of the originators “who are so far giving us information regarding those still at large.” He said some the ring leaders will soon appear before court as hinted upon by the IGP during his Monday press conference at Katwe Police Station.

These nine pledges have been made by Janet Museveni in the next financial year

Campus Bee - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 10:50

As the Minister of Education Hon Janet Kataha Museveni defended the Sector Budget for FY 17/18, she caught our attention when she made the following salivating resolutions.

As staffing levels in public Universities stand below 50%, the ministry intends to increase funding and have the levels increased above 50%. This is because the staff ratios determine the quality of Student output.

The roadmap to having MUBS recognized as an independent institution has been drawn. A visitation committee from National Council of Higher Education will be appointed to justify and advise the ministry on whether or not MUBS qualifies to be a stand alone University.

The Mbarara University of Science and Technology Kihumuro campus that only has 27 students who are transported from the other campus daily is to be completed soon. After completion, residential facilities will also be put up to accommodate students and save the University the congestion and transportation burden. This project was funded by the World Bank to accommodate all engineering courses.

A loan is to be secured to rehabilitate halls of residence in public Universities especially MAK’s Lumumba hall. A section of the hall (Block C) was closed years ago after the dilapidated conditions hit the bliss point.

The MAK wall fence is to be taken into account to and blueprints laid to have it built as pledged by the president.

The Higher Education Students’ Loaning scheme that lacks funding is to be revised. Apparently, shs2 billion is available from the last cohort that graduated. The ministry will look into the Employability loophole where 12 months are given to students before they start paying back the loans.

Infrastructure in public Universities that include lecture rooms, halls of residence, furniture are to be given a facelift.

The ministry is to try and increase the money allocated to research. Most of the research in public Universities is funded by donors and foreign aid because if insufficient budgets.

The presidential pledges made to different public Universities are to be put into consideration most especially shs47 billion promised to Kabale University.

While addressing the parliamentary committee on education, the Minister of education stressed that the reason as to why the sector fails to meet its goals rotates around the unbalanced and insufficiently funded budget.

Should I tell my boyfriend’s mom I had an abortion?- MUBS student

Campus Bee - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 10:15

Hello, my name is Joyce and I am a student at Makerere University Business School (MUBS). My boyfriend and I have been dating almost two years now. A few months ago, I got pregnant by mistake and we decided to get an abortion, as we weren’t ready to be parents.

For the most part, I have dealt with this, and our relationship has never been stronger. The problem is his mother really wants grandkids and keeps tagging me in baby stuff online asking if she should buy it for us and such. This has really been bothering me because we both have told her we won’t be having a kid for many years- at least not until we’re done with school and have a source of income.

How should I deal with this? I have talked to him about it and he just kind of brushes it off because his mother is extremely difficult. She fights with everybody but we get along well other than this issue. Since this started happening, almost everything she does now drives me crazy. Please help me figure out how to deal with my potential future mother-in-law.

First of all, as Campus Bee, we don’t encourage abortion in any way, but since it has already been done, the least we can do now is advise you accordingly.

This is obviously a tough situation but I want you to remember that you have a choice in the matter. You are the one who knows best what you need to feel healthy and secure.

Obviously, your boyfriend understands his family better and you should be respectful of his preferences, just as you’d want him to be respectful of yours. But it’s not fair for him to just brush off this conversation. Tell him it’s time for a real talk, sit him down and talk deeply about the issue at hand.

If there’s one thing I understand about abortion, as a guy, it’s that most guys don’t understand what it’s like to have an abortion. He may have the best intentions in the world and think that he’s got a handle on how you feel, but he probably just plain doesn’t get it. He might never. But he does sound like he’s trying, and you should continue trying to explain it to him.

It’s fair to remind him that, no matter how supportive he has been, you’re the one who’s been dealing with this primarily, and you’re being extremely reasonable to ask for a little help.

Or, as a lady who has a right to speak up should tell her to chill out on the baby talk, she might respect you for that and at least you will have one thing off your plate.

Regards.

Uganda Online - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 09:21


Ex Miss UG, Dora Mwima, is a mom of four including twins of about a month back, but her biggest worry now is how to tone down her tummy.

"Today marks exactly 3weeks and 6days after having the twins and undergoing surgery and I must say am loving the progress so far."

"For the record am 5'6 tall, I was 53kgs and went up to 68kgs, both babies combined weighed 4.7kgs and this was my first C-section birth after 2 vaginal births. As of today, I still haven't done any straining workouts apart from taking 10-30min walks which have mainly helped in healing the scar."

The former beauty queen feels the twins over stretched her tummy so she keeps monitoring the progress of it's toning down by the minute.

Bobi Wine to contest for MP Kyadondo East

Uganda Online - Thu, 04/27/2017 - 05:08

Bobi Wine confirms he will be contesting for MP Kyadondo East

Robert Sentamu Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has confirmed he will be contesting for the Kyadondo East MP seat that fell vacant today. Clad in his blue suit, the singer was appearing on NTV during the 7 O'clock news when he confirmed that he will be contesting.

Asked if he was a politician, Bobi Wine said he was not, but instead, he is a leader and that is why he was going to give it a go. The news anchor went on to ask him if his recent troubles are the one's that have led him to make that move, the Situka singer said not really as so many things have actually been done to him even before, but that does not in any way affect his loyalty to the Buganda Kingdom. I'm a Omubanda Wa Kabaka.

What is it that you going to do for the people that others have failed? "I've been talking about so many things in my music, but for some reason, the legislators don't attend to any of them, however, once I'm there, if it means singing to them on the floor, I will do so and trust you me, it will make a difference.

The former party leader of FDC, Dr. Kizza Besigye, was in court to give support to Hon Katinti who lost the seat and at the same time, he is a very close ally of singer Bobi Wine, it's now left to be seen who he will be rallying behind..

Bobi Wine for politics and the excitement on Barbie's face says it all

Updated:

While appearing on NTV News at 7pm, Bobi Wine confirmed that he was going to contest for the Kyadondo East MP seat - "I will be joining the race for MP Kyadondo East and it's up to the Kyadondo people to give me their votes. None of my fans can belittle the Kabaka of Buganda so that will not affect me. I'm not a politician and I'm not vying for this post as a politician, but as a leader. I have so many songs sending my message out there, but It's high time I join the house to ensure all that is implemented."

Earlier:

The High Court in 2016 kicked out Kyadondo East MP Apollo Kantinti (FDC) after NRM’s William Sitenda Sebalu successfully challenged his election on the grounds that there was non-compliance with election rules. Hon. Kantinti appealed the court ruling.

However, today, the court ordered that Electoral Commission should conduct fresh elections. Previously, the Bikwase Kyagulanyi singer had considered contesting for that position, but was allegedly offered a Shs 200m 'bribe' to pull out, but when Bobi Wine was approached over the matter, he noted that his conscience is not for sell.

Bobi Wine said that was not the right time for him to contest, could that time be now after all that has been happening with him lately? Only time will tell.

Most of his fans have actually welcomed the idea of him standing for the Kyadondo East MP seat while others insist he is better off doing music but not politics.
