Network posting

In one of my online networks a member posted this piece which I thought I should share with you

Folks,

I have NEVER agreed with Besigye's Politics and arguments and may never
in FUTURE.

I may understand the source of his anger for the old man with a hat, but
when I saw the manner of his arrest yesterday, tears ran down my eyes.

I think in all fairness, the security personnel involved need to be given
a SEVERE punishment to send a message to security personnel that we are
way past STONE AGE. The manner is which he was arrested was DEHUMANIZING
to say the least.

Personally, whenever I hear Grace Turyagumanawe deployed somewhere I feel
sorry for the would-be victims of his. This is the same guy who came to
Makerere in 2006 where I was a Chairperson of LC1 in Nsibirwa hall, yes
there was a strike at the University, but Nsibirwa was calm, I met him
and spoke with him and he assured me that since there was calm at
Nsibirwa, there would be no tear gas. 10 minutes after my conversation
with him, he returned commanding his troops to 'SHOWER' Nsibirwa hall
with tear gas and what followed is something you can only imagine for
those that know the architecture of that HALL and how it would be with
teargas in the corridors!

Grace Turyagumanawe??????? I saw him on TV saying that Besigye abused him
yet he knew that he (GT) is a top officer in the Uganda Police!!!!!


The Baganda have a saying, "ow'ebbango bwo tamuwemukira tewebikka!"
Someone needs to tell the Police that they have gone overboard and they
can only take heed if they hear it from someone within.

Lets pray meanwhile for the Police to sanitize.

Police have fired teargas into the vehicle of Uganda's top opposition leader and arrested him during a fifth protest march over rising costs.

Kizza Besigye's detention came the day after he was released from prison, where he was held leading a similar "walk to work" protest march last week. Besigye says the demonstrations are to protest against government corruption and the rising cost of food and fuel.

A police spokeswoman, Judith Nabakooba, said Besigye was arrested for not following police orders and for leading a chaotic demonstration that caused traffic jams and saw his supporters throw stones at passing vehicles. He was arrested about 1 mile (1.5km) from Kampala's city centre.

In Besigye's first protests he attempted to walk to Kampala from his country home. But during his last two marches he drove closer to the city centre before beginning his walk, which attracted hundreds of supporters in the street.

An Associated Press reporter who witnessed Thursday's arrest said Besigye briefly got out of his vehicle but locked himself in it when police approached. Officers used an axe and the butts of their guns to smash open a window, then fired teargas inside.

AP photos showed Besigye using his shirt to wipe his eyes from the effects of the gas. On his right hand was a white cast – he has said police broke one of his fingers last week by shooting him with a rubber bullet during a demonstration.

Besigye came second in Uganda's February presidential election to Yoweri Museveni. It was his third straight loss to Museveni and threatened to end his political career. But Uganda has seen huge rises in food and fuel prices in recent months, giving Besigye – and his protests – a political resurrection.

Museveni has vowed to crack down on the protests and has said repeatedly his government won't be overthrown like those in Egypt and Tunisia. Museveni has led Uganda for 25 years. Official returns showed him winning 68% of the February vote, though Besigye says those returns were falsified and both he and Museveni got just under 50%.

Besigye told AP in an interview at his home last week that many Ugandans faced a "crisis of survival", the healthcare system had broken down and young people could not find jobs.

Besigye was the president's personal doctor before being dismissed for saying in 1999 that the government was becoming a dictatorship.

Uganda is a young country, with half of its nearly 35 million citizens under the age of 15. An estimated 1.2 million have HIV/Aids and the average yearly income is $1,200 (£720).

Magistrate remands Kiiza Besigye to Nakasongola Prison

The Four Cats

Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were.

The first man was an Engineer,

The second man was an Accountant,

The third man was a Chemist, and

The fourth man was a Government Employee.

To show off, the Engineer called his cat, "T-square, do your stuff."

T-square pranced over to the desk, took out some paper and pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle.

Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.

But the Accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Spreadsheet, do your stuff."

Spreadsheet went out to the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies.

He divided them into 4 equal piles of 3 cookies.

Everyone agreed that was good.

But the Chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Measure, do your stuff."

Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured Exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop into the glass.

Everyone agreed that was pretty good.

Then the three men turned to the Government Employee and said,

"What can your cat do?" The Government Employee called his

cat and said, "Coffee Break, do your stuff."

Coffee Break jumped to his feet.......

Ate the cookies........

Drank the milk........

Sh*t on the paper.......

Screwed the other three cats.......Claimed he injured his back while doing so......

Filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions.......

Put in for Workers Compensation..................and Went home for the rest of the day on sick leave............

AND THAT, MY FRIEND IS WHY EVERYONE WANTS TO WORK

FOR THE GOVERNMENT!!

Borderlands' Modest Proposal

God Bless Mommy....!

A father put his three year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which she ended by saying "God bless Mommy, God bless daddy, God bless grandma and good-bye grandpa."

The father asked, "Why did you say good-bye grandpa?"

The little girl said, "I don't know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do."

The next day grandpa died.

The father thought it was a strange coincidence.

A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers, which went like this: "God bless Mommy, God Bless daddy and good-bye grandma."

The next day the grandmother died.

Oh my god, thought the father, this kid is in contact with the other side.

Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say, "God bless Mommy and good-bye daddy."

He practically went into shock. He couldn't sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office.

He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch sent in and watched the clock.

He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay.

He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there,

drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound.

Finally midnight arrived, he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.

When he got home his wife said "I've never seen you work so late, what's the matter?"

He said "I don't want to talk about it, I've just spent the worst day of my life."

She said "You think you had a bad day, you'll never believe what happened to me. This morning our neighbour James dropped dead on our Porch."

Time Magazine worried about Museveni’s sanity


By George Murumba

President Museveni: Is he still a sane man?

25th April 2011: Time Magazine, one of the world’s most influential publications that is known for its global personality ratings and foreign policy issues, has, in a subtle way, drawn attention to President Museveni’s sanity by saying he is increasingly issuing “bizarre” statements.

In an article published on the 23rd of April under the title “Deadly crackdown on Uganda’s walk-to-work protests”, the author Ioannis Gatsiounis starts byanalysing the approach adopted by Museveni’s government to deal with the ‘Walk-to-‘Work protests that have rocked most parts of Uganda; especially central, western, and northern regions.

Gatsiounis said, “…no one took much notice when Besigye, who heads the Forum for Democratic Change, announced he and other opposition leaders would walk to work to protest the country’s soaring fuel and food prices. No one except Uganda’s security forces, who intercepted the first march on April 11th in full riot gear, fired tear gas and hauled the opposition leaders onto police trucks”.

Public outrage over the government’s heavy-handedness, Gatsiounis says, “…was instant. By April 14, Ugandans had seen images of Besigye, the victim of a rubber-gunshot wound, standing outside Kampala Hospital with his hand bandaged and in a sling, and walk-to-work campaigns had spread to four cities across the country. But by Friday, the protest movement had become violent. Clashes between the demonstrators, and between protestors and police, have left at least five people dead — including a two-year-old child who was shot in the head and chest by security forces-dozens injured, and hundreds arrested”.

Museveni’s show of force and solemn vow not to compromise with the opposition, Gatsiounis adds, “…has so far only stoked resistance as it comes amid a growing list of public grievances, including swelling unemployment, runaway corruption, and reckless government spending”.

Time Magazine believes Museveni’s reasoning is that the brutal crackdown will forever stop the protests and shock Ugandans…back into their natural state of political detachment. But for now, the author says, “…images of children choking on tear gas, one brutally slain, and a man in bandages thrown behind bars just for walking to work are proving more powerful than the threat from the barrel of a gun”.

Besides, Museveni’s re-election campaign is estimated to have cost $350 million, with a 600billion supplementary budget approved to foot the bill after the national treasury was reportedly exhausted. Since then his regime has spent $740 million on fighter jets and at least $1.3 million is scheduled to be spent on his swearing-in ceremony next month; all while inflation has soared from 6% to 11% since February.

Time Magazine further says the government’s brutal crackdown on Besigye supporters has undermined Museveni’s image as liberator and peacemaker and is threatening to damage Uganda’s standing both regionally and internationally. Donor nations have condemned the disproportionate use of force, while regional media are questioning just where Museveni is leading Uganda.

President Museveni’s sanity called into question

The author then appeared to call Museveni’s sanity into serious question by saying, “…Museveni-known for his populist touch-has at times come off as unbothered by citizen concerns, issuing statements that have bordered on the bizarre. Regarding rising fuel prices, which have risen 50% since January, he said last week, “What I call on the public to do is to use fuel sparingly. Don’t drive to bars”, Museveni is reported to have bizarrely advised

Museveni, Time Magazine says, also recently dismissed rapidly rising food prices by saying that they’re good for farmers. And last weekend, Museveni told journalists at his country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhura district that, “…I can see myself getting the Nobel Peace Prize for managing the country, especially the army, very well”, a response that Time Magazinethinks may suggest that Museveni is totally out of touch with the prevailing socio-economic and political realities in his own country.

US Ambassador to Uganda Jerry Lanier agrees

On December 13th 2010, Uganda Correspondent published a story [see: USA thinks Museveni is ‘deluded and autocratic’] in which reference was made to comments made by US Ambassador to Uganda Jerry Lanier in the WikiLeaks diplomatic cables. In the leaked cables, Ambassador Lanier told Secretary of State Jonnie Carson that “…Museveni’s heavy-handedness and the corruption of senior leaders have sparked dissent within the NRM”.

In what was interpreted by one analyst [at the time] to be the most damning indictment of“Museveni the man”, Ambassador Lanier added that, “…press reports and anecdotal evidence suggest the President is increasingly isolated and unaware of the depth of resentment both within the NRM and among society as a whole”.

That, according to the analyst, means “…the US government under President Barack Obama now privately believes Museveni is a deluded President”. END. Please login towww.ugandacorrespondent.com every Monday to read our top stories and anytime mid-week for our news updates.

Ur Windows!!!!

Vioicemail; Hear, hear!!!!

Chapati (food) for thought!

A woman baked chapati for members of her family and an extra one for a hungrypasserby. She kept the extra chapati on the Window-sill, for whosoever would take it away. Everyday, a hunchback came and took away the chapati. Instead of expressing gratitude, he muttered the following words as he went his way: "The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!" This went on, day after day.

Everyday, the hunch-back came, picked up the chapati and uttered the words: "The evil you do, remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!" The woman felt irritated. "Not a word of gratitude," she said to

herself...

"Everyday this hunchback utters this jingle! What does he mean? "One day, exasperated, she decided to do away with him. "I shall get rid of this

hunchback," she said. And what did she do? She added poison to the Chapatti she prepared for him! As she was about to keep it on the window sill, her hands trembled.

"What is this I am doing?" she said Immediately, she threw the chapati into the fire, prepared another one and kept it on the window- sill. As usual, the hunchback came, picked up the chapati and muttered the words: "The evil you do, remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!" The hunchback proceeded on his way, blissfully unaware of the war raging in the mind of the woman.

Everyday, as the woman placed the chapati on the window-sill, she offered a prayer for her son who had gone to a distant place to seek his fortune.

For many months, she had no news of him.. She prayed for his safe return. That evening, there was a knock on the door. As she opened it, she was surprised to find her son standing in the doorway.. He had grown thin and lean. His garments were tattered and torn. He was hungry, starved and weak.

As he saw his mother, he said, "Mom, it's a miracle I'm here. While I was but a mile away, I was so famished that I collapsed. I would have died, but just then an old hunchbackpassed by. I begged of him for a morsel of food, and he was kind enough to give me a whole chapati."As he gave it to me, he said, "This is what I eat everyday: today, I shall give it to you, for your need is greater than mine!" " As the mother heard those words, her face turned pale.

She leaned against the door for support. She remembered the poisoned chapati that she had made that morning. Had she not burnt it in the fire, it would

have been eaten by her own son, and he would have lost his life! It was then that she realized the significance of the words:"The evil you do remains with you: The good you do, comes back to you!"Do good and; Don't ever stop doing good, even if it’s not appreciated at that time.

If you like this, share it with others and I bet you so many lives would be affected.

Have a wonderful day.

It's my prayer that may the Almighty God do you good in all you do, not only for today but always.

Orange Network


I just want to share with you my experience with Orange. After good advice I received from this network platform, I got myself an Orange dongle. It had never disappointed me. I made it a point to always donate it to someone before I left, and whenever I return I buy a new one!
This time when I came, I found an orange dongle at the apartment where I stay. I just loaded airtime and went online. On Sunday 10th April, I ran out of airtime. I sent for 10k worth and loaded. Still I could not access the Internet. I called customer service and I was advised to get airtime of at least 25 k so it could be converted into data. I did that, read out the numbers to them, and I was advised to wait for around 30 minutes. Within 15 minutes some one called and informed me that I was on. I tried, but wapi. I called again, but they promised to solve the problem, the next morning!
I called a number of times on Monday and Tuesday. I was asked so many stupid questions by so many different people; what is the name of the person you talked to? Was it a man or woman? what time did you cal;l? What did he/she tell you? Over and over again! The last guy I talked to was some boss lady. I told her, I did not have the time to continously discuss 25,000/- for 3 days without a solution. I threw away the dongle and simcard in my phone, replaced both with Warid....and I happily surfed away!

After submitting my experience with Orange to I-network group platform, I received an email requesting for my contacts. I surely didn't want to go through what I went through the previous week, so I ignored it. Shortly afterwards, A lady called me and introduced herself as Diane calling from the headquarters of Orange at the customer retention desk. She wanted me to explain what happened, but I was reluctant as I had done it so many times with many different people.
Anyhow, I relented and briefly explained. She promised to follow it up and call me back. I actually laughed commenting that that was the last thing the last person I talked to in Orange said it me last week, and up to now, she hasn't.
Surprisingly after around 10 minutes she called me back and apologised on behalf of Orange and promised such an incident never to take place again. on behalf of Orange, she offered me a free dongle including IGB of Data if I accept to retrurn to the Orange family.
Who am I to reject such an offer to return to the the real 3G speeds?

Back to God!
