1000 Development Channel (DC) Staff Pray for Africa’s Unity



As a culture at Development Channel every last Saturday of the month is request night. Given Development Channel’s vision of liberating Africa from poverty, a task which seems impossible, request night is simply asking for grace from God that makes all things possible through prayer. The theme of this month’s request night was “The God of Unity.”

In the words of a modern Pan-Africanist, Chairman and founder of Development Channel Charles N. Lambert, Africa’s identity for a long time has been synonymous with poverty and death. He knows too well that Africa does not only need ideals but also God in order to confront this disgusting image.

For far too long Africa has lagged behind based on funny factors like the pull down syndrome. While the most part of the world puts so much concentration on helping each other up, for example the Indians, Chinese and Americans help themselves up the journey of success which is not a common phenomenon in Africa. It is only Africans that have not yet noticed the notion that there is ample space up in the sky for everyone, and it is more crowded down below.

Development Channel Chairman stated that our political independence was spear headed by a strong spirit of unity by a breed of Pan-Africanists that put Africa first with a united goal and bent all their strength to this attainment, so we must recognize that our economic independence resides in our African union and requires the same concentration upon the economic achievement. He explained that, that spirit of Pan-Africanism now resides in one leader across the whole continent, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and he demanded that all African governments must embrace his legacy of freedom and security. The reality of the matter is that Pan-Africanism was introduced by Black Americans like William Edward Burghardt (W.E.B) Du Bois. They introduced Pan-Africanism to African students studying in Europe and America. It is this spirit and Pan-African ideology that these students brought back home to Africa and pushed it forward to attain political independence.

In order to achieve Africa’s unity, DC staff prayed for end of; Xenophobia, tribalism, classism, pulldown syndrome and illiteracy in Africa. It is sad that at this day and age, we still judge people by where they come from rather than their content of character. It’s only in Africa where Public Servants act like they’re a class above everyone else ignoring that they’re in those offices to serve the people.

No sporadic act nor pious resolution can resolve Africa’s present problems. Even if thousands of NGOs participated, nothing will be of avail, except the act of a united Africa.

Even God desires that Africa be united because He is a God of unity as evidenced in Genesis where The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.” Through Africa’s unity that staff were praying for, there is nothing that will hinder Development Channel army from winning the economic war.

Present at the request night were the following celebrated personalities; Cleopatra Koheirwe, Douglas Lwanga, Mathew Nabwiso, Eleanor Nabwiso, Andrew Kyamagero, Coco Finger, Roger Mugisha, Mushema Housen, Richard Tuwangye, Joel Jenkins among others.

We have always known him as insane in the family. He is fine and the next moment he is running on the street” a close family member revealed.

The relative also added that years earlier Akuze was suspected to have participated in the murder of his younger brother but could not be persecuted because he was known as a mad man.

If you do not know about yesterday’s tweef between musicians Ykee Benda and Apass ,you are definitely living on another planet.

The two artists got into it after an exchange related to Fik Fameica’s flopped concert escalated into a battle of words between the two, pitting their fans against each other. The exchange kept going for a while, as twitter spectators had the time of their life laughing at all the banter.

Comedian Salvado doing what he does best- comedy.

Comedian Salvador however came through to challenge the two artists, asking them to give Fik Fameica respect for going all out and having the courage to put on a concert, telling them that until they put on their own concerts they should look at Fik as a teacher they need to learn from.

“My message to @IAmApass and @YkeeBenda  … until both of you do a major show… please give credit to @FFameica for going all out.. right now he is the teacher … esp you my kid bro A Pas … tusigale nga tuli bakakamu.. Do a show and let the masses judge.”

We hope this quells the situation.
