My name is Musana and I am a student of IT at Makerere University and I am in my final year. Towards the Tuition payment deadline which was Monday 16th January, I put my money up on a bet for an AFCON match where Guinea Bissau was playing against Gabon on 14th January. I thought Gabon would win but it came out as a draw and I lost it all yet I had expected to make an extra Ugx300,000. I have tried all other avenues so I can clear my tuition but all have failed, surely, tuition money is cursed. What should I do?
Hey Musana, sorry about your ordeal but, didn’t you know that betting is for the clever and you don’t fit right into that category? Time and time again we worn you from messing with tuition money but well, you just had to do the opposite for closure, congratulations, you just played yourself.

Uganda is one of the countries with highest rates of the meningitis A disease and also one of the 26 countries that lie within the extended meningitis belt of Sub-Saharan Africa, stretching from Senegal in the West to Ethiopia in the East. In Uganda, the most susceptible regions include West Nile, parts of Bunyoro, Acholi and Lango regions, Teso and Karamoja.
Though treatable, the disease can best be prevented through immunisation. The Ministry of Health with support from World Health Organisation (WHO) and partners have planned to conduct free Mass Immunization Campaign in the high risk 39 districts in Uganda to prevent any outbreak starting on 19th January to 23rd January 2017 for all persons aged between 1 year and 29 years.
The areas in which this immunisation exercise will be carried out for the next two weeks will be; Arua, Zombo, Koboko, Adjumani, Nebbi, Maracha, Moyo, Yumbe, Gulu, Amuru, Kitgum, Lamwo, Nwoya, Pader, Agago, Omoro, Dokolo, Lira, Alebtong, Kole, Otuke, Amolatar, Apac, Oyam, Hoima, Masindi, Buliisa, Kiryadongo, Amuria, Kaberamaido, Katakwi, Soroti, Abim, Amudat, Kaabong, Kotido, Moroto, Nakapiripiriti, and Napak.
The immunisation campaign was officially launched in Omoro district at Lalogi Grounds on Tuesday 17th January, with the Minister of Health Dr. Jane Acheng. The Ministry of Health and partners have deployed Medical personnel across the affected districts to oversee the success of the immunisation exercise.
All persons and care givers are advised to go to the nearest health centres and other outreach immunisation posts in their districts for the the free vaccine. The vaccine is safe and effective and has been approved by the World Health Organisation. The vaccine will be administered by a trained health worker using a single injection on the upper arm.

Delvin explained that the fracture occurred when he was doing team building with his friends in Karen.
“We were playing outdoor games such as rock climbing and paintball and during that time, I seem to have landed on my leg. I thought it was a sprain and as we left Karen, the leg was swollen. At that time we were on Ng’ong road and decided to get visit the nearest hospital for an X-ray. The results revealed that it was a fracture. The hospital staff members have treated me very well. And as I prepare for theatre, I ask my fans to include me in their prayers.” says Delvin.
He is scheduled for surgery on his leg today.

William Onyeabor, groundbreaking synth funk musician, has died at the age of 70.
The Nigerian artist died on 16 January, according to a statement released by David Byrne’s record label Luaka Bop. Describing him as “the great Nigerian business leader and mythic music pioneer”, the statement explained that Onyeabor died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Enugu, Nigeria, following a short illness.
Starting his career in 1977, Onyeabor composed and self-released nine albums of electronic funk over his lifetime, albums which he recorded, pressed and printed at his own pressing plant in southeast Nigeria, Wilfilms Limited.
His career was given a new lease of life in recent years with the release of a best of album entitled Who Is William Onyeabor? in 2013, the 2014 film documentary Fantastic Man and a series of live tribute shows performed by the likes of Damon Albarn, Alexis Taylor, Lijadu Sisters and Ghostpoet.
“William Onyeabor would never speak about himself and for a long time refused many of the interview requests that came his way,” continues the statement. “Having become Born Again in the latter part of life, he only wanted to speak about God. We would like to send our deepest condolences to his family and thank each and every one of you who has helped share the love for his music around the world.”
Onyeabor was given the honorary title justice of the peace in the 1980s. In the early 1990s, he became the president of Enugu’s Musician’s Union and chairman of the city’s local football team, the Enugu Rangers.
He is survived by his wife, four children and four grandchildren.
