In a bid to celebrate midwives’ resilience and hard work, Acord Uganda celebrated the International Day of Midwives 2020 by recognizing the champions.

Amidst this pandemic and the lockdown, frontline workers have continued to “lock on”. The midwives have risked their lives to save mothers and the newborn babies.

Among the true heroes celebrated in this sector is Christopher Kwikiriza.

Christopher has served as a midwife with ACORD Uganda in the humanitarian context in Rwamwanja, Adjumani and Kyaka II since 2014.  Humanitarian responses are quite challenging but Christopher has excelled in saving mothers, a role that he has played with courage, passion and precision. “My inspiration is to ensure that no mother or her baby is lost. In my career, I have not lost one and it remains my goal to give my best and provide safe deliveries. It is the reward that I get each day,” Christopher says.

As ACORD Uganda commemorated International Day of Midwives on the 5th of May 2020 with the theme: “Celebrate, Demonstrate, Mobilize and Unite”, they recognized and appreciated that midwives are committed to the delivery of quality and timely reproductive healthcare services; enabling women to lead productive healthy lives.

ACORD Uganda, celebrates their heroes; Catherine, Kellen, Faith, Susan and Christopher for their commitment and outstanding services. They also joined the entire world to appreciate midwives globally.

The Black Wall Street Economic War activist Charles N. Lambert is not about to give up until Africa achieves economic independence.  He has penned an educative letter telling how Africans especially Ugandans can win the Economic War.

In the letter, Lambert called on Ugandans to wake and know that we are Africa. “We are one, the boundaries were created by Europeans and no African was there, let us put Africa first,” he said.  Below is the full letter;

“I offered economic wisdom to them but they said I was Nigerian and the wisdom must be fraudulent. I provided jobs for thousands of their youth but they said I was using them.

I built the largest call center in Africa in their country but every day they sent local police to harass people there.

The call Centre set up by Development Channel

I gave a platform for their celebrities to shine on African stage but they said they are the ones who made me.

I exalted their President and referred to his wisdom but they said I am using his name to support my criminal intentions.

I told them their country could be great but even their top most leaders said I should rather do that for my own country.

Uganda, this boundary you refer to was designed by White people living in Europe in a meeting and most of them had never even been to Africa and not a single African was in the meeting that created what you now call Uganda. We are one people, one continent, one destiny. Africa First,” Lambert penned.

Big Eye StarBoss Stuck In Ugx. 450Million Debt, Tears For Rescue

Published

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

By BigEyeUg Team; In the face of being one of the most rewarded musicians by the President of Uganda for the past two years, Big Eye feels life is not worth to live.

Even not the recent 10 hybrid cows can console him back to his flamboyant lifestyle.

Apparently, struggling singer Ibrahim Mayanja aka Big Eye StarBoss is out of sorts after accumulating over Shs. 450Million in debts.

In a live Facebook video, the ‘Ndi Single’ singer has cried out his heart to the President of Uganda, H.E YK Museveni, fellow NRM members, and fans at large to redeem his current financial crisis that may ride him into jail.

The self-proclaimed ‘Star Boss’ says he purchased a residential house worth Shs. 460Million but he managed to make an initial deposit of Shs.60Million with hope of mending the balance in the shortest time possible.

On a sad note, all his plans were doomed earlier this year after being pelted with bottles as he was performing live on stage which pursued concert promoters to also shun his bookings.

After mounting unbearable pressure from the bank over the debts, Big Eye’s hopes drained and he resorted to selling his own car which has not also matched the debts to date.

Big Eye also says he has defaulted additional Shs.50Million as rent for the past 6months.

He also notes that he has a limited grace period to make the full payment for the house if he is not ready to lose even the initial deposit of Shs.60Million.

I am left with limited time to complete the house payment or else am likely to lose even the Shs. 60Million that I paid at first,” said Big Eye.

He further claims to have not received any payment from the NRM political party despite offering campaigning services for H.E YK Museveni in the 2010 and 2015 campaigns.

As usual, the singer is receiving severe controversy all over the media as majority ascertain him to be a ‘mere beggar’ who is often drawn to seeking public sympathy, a mark he seems not to be bothered with.
