Is Our Government System A Huge Joke Uganda? #SIMCardRegistration

The Ugandan government has famously been known for passing laws & great or remarkable policies which never get chance to see fortnight’s daylight or even less. Reasons, still not fully established, but one can’t help to question, “Is the democratic system of Uganda is a joke?” Following the recent SIM card registration policy passed by government, after many failed attempts, government finally followed through with it’s deadline leaving thousands of Ugandan’s phone numbers disconnected including Ofwono Opondo’s number the Government Spokesman & Head of the Uganda Media Center!!! Tracking back, shortly before the deadline. The Parliament of Uganda passed a law, directing UCC to postpone the Sim card registration deadline & give more Ugandans “who can’t read” a chance to register their SIM cards up to next year (Huge joke right?). However, despite of parliament’s ruling, the government through the ICT Minister Frank Tumwebaze went ahead to enforce their deadline of Sim card registration and we all know what happened on the 19th May 2017. What he did was ground breaking for the “Kisanja Hakuna Mchezoo government…” Yet still against the law. The minister of ICT was found in contempt of Parliament, which means he broke the law to enforce the law. Upon being summoned by the speaker, the minister still enforced the law by leaving the disconnected all SIM cards off. Ps, the summoning was never effected due to the events that followed. Shortly at the start of the week, Monday the NRM Party meeting seats (NRM MPs alone) in Entebbe. Not surprisingly, the Chairperson of the ruling party who is also the president of Uganda Uganda accepts the plea of the members of Parliament to extend the registration process and deadline. However the presidents only decides to push it up to the month of August 2017 which is…

7 Steps On How To Turn Your Life Around 

There came a point in life were you seem not to have control over where your life is leading. You know you are headed the wrong direction but still blindly follow along because maybe you gave up on your self & have no idea how to turn things around. Yet you deeply desire to turn things around. My early life has been a maze, I did the same things every time & expected different results. As a result, I was poor, insignificant in society, disappointed my parents, my relationships sucked, even my own siblings disassociated with me, the list goes on. I was a person of no value, all I knew well how to do was talk rubbish, start trouble, never completed tasks, you name it. In short, I failed at everything I did. At the age of 17 years, I knew I had to get my name back from all the negativity & be restored to honor. I decided to turn my life around hence chose to first seek knowledge & wisdom. I discovered, “Men fall because of having a broken focus.” & also learnt that, “Men choose their habits & their habits choose their future.” There, I knew exactly what to start working on. Get focused & set habits that will lead me towards my purpose in life as you will see;    1. Know your self & what your going after. Set specific target. Like any of you, I thought I knew my self until after several psychological personality tests & consultations from my mentors & people around me. I discovered my weakness & potential. My talents & gifts paved a way for me to become a servant leader so I chose to focus on that from the word go. I built habits like, partiality, prudence, listening,…

How Failure Was My Best Guide for Success

Have you ever thought for just a second that life is a daily pressure? The thinks we want to achieve or have? The power & rights we seek to have that comes with responsibilities? It’s all pressure! But for any progress to happen, we must learn how to live under pressure. It is said, you will never progress from a comfort zone of your life unless you have attained the maximum level of success (which is rarely possible for many). I have had my share of success and failure in my life. But today, I want to briefly address the issue of rising up again from failure. A few years I embarked on a journey to run for the office of Member of Parliament representing the entire Eastern Uganda. With a successful 8 year leadership career and great track record, I had not planned for the possibility of failure. I gave the campaign everything I had, my resources, time, energy, reputation, and everything I had, it was a do or die situation for me we can say 😊. However, the inevitable happened, dynamics in the politics (party godfathers) were not in my favor! Losing the election left me with broken focus, bankrupt, heart broken, homeless, devastated, in one word, “Catastrophe.” To me, it was my end. My view of failure when everything is lost then was more like a pre-death experience, only worse that I had to live through the after effects of shame, mockery, condemnation, debts, poverty, hunger, you name it. This all I faced. Every single day I sunk deep and deep into destruction. One day, I heard Oprah say, “Failure is just life trying to move us to another direction.” These words sunk deep in, “…it’s not the end of me after all.” I said to my…
