Huawei has launched its latest smart phone P8 in Johannesburg, South Africa in a series of activities expected to culminate in its launch in Ugandan on July 15th, 2015

“The goal of the Huawei P8 is to become the most user-friendly smartphone for consumers globally. Huawei seamlessly combines the best elements of style and durability in this device, delivering a revolutionary and premium user experience. The device symbolises our continuous commitment to provide customers with access to premium quality products” said Charlene Munillal, GM of Huawei Consumer Business Group SA.

The P8 embodies classic yet inspiring design, class-leading technology and ease of use that is bound to amaze and inspire its users. The Huawei P8 is undoubtedly the smartphone of choice for the fashion-conscious, visually stimulated modern user. The P8 will be available in stores and through all network operators from the second week of July.

The P8’s outward appeal lies in its sleek, classical design that reflects its users’sense of style and appreciation of performance and usability. Combining elegance, craftsmanship and durability, the P8 is manufactured using the latest Nano-injection moldings technology to deliver a one-piece aluminum body.

The sleek design combines comfort and ease of use, with the beveled body measuring a mere 6,4mm in height and weighing only 144g. Catering to the fashion conscious consumer who delights in choice, the Huawei P8 is available in silver, gold, black and grey.

The P8’s 5.2’’full HD display with a 1080p resolution completes the design of a handset that redefines elegance and a fully immersive experience.

These physical attributes that perfectly blend human-machine design are enhanced by clarity of thought and ease of use in the user interface that delivers a new level of usability for applications impacting everyday life –at work and at play.

This is by virtue of Huawei’s Emotion UI 3.0 (EMUI) user interface that redefines the user experience. Built on top of the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, EMUI offers what can only be called a containerized solution: it’s a look, feel and set of features unique to Huawei.

Android Lollipop 5.0 on the P8 features a bold design that is responsive and allows for quick ways to view and respond to messages directly from the locked screen. It comes with automatic encryption to help protect data on the device if it is lost or stolen. The inclusion of SELinux running on all applications allows for protection against vulnerability and malware. Another great feature that comes part of the Operating System is when the screen is off, simply utter the words “OK Google” to access the full Google offering.

This attention to usability detail is taken a few steps further with the ability to increase the volume by up to 58 percent above normal level in noisy environments, as well as the ability to cut out 90 percent of wind noise when using a headset or earphones with a single mic.

Add to this the super hands-free functionality that enables clear hands-free speaker calls within two meters, and the built-in independent audio decoder chipset that doubles the music volume without sacrificing audio quality.

All these features and functionality are powered by Kirin 930 Octa-Core 64-bit chipset, delivering outstanding performance that outpaces the smartphone market by 20 percent. The 2680mAh battery has been optimized through extensive research and development in the Huawei laboratories and offers 24 hours of standby power when only 10 percent battery power remains.

This has been achieved by also applying Huawei’s unique battery management technology that includes features such as balancing brightness and energy consumption that provides 20 percent higher efficiency than comparative phones.

The P8 is available with either 16GB or 64GB on-board memory, which can be supplemented with a microSD card up to 128GB that fits into the dual SIM slot that alternatively accepts a second SIM card.

The Huawei P8 is optimized for 4G/LTE data connections as well as enhanced network roaming – which is performed nearly three times faster than competitor phone models.

By the same token, voice quality has been given a boost with Huawei’s Signal+ technology that provides seamless network connectivity, even when users are travelling on a train at a speed of up to 300 kilometers per hour.

As part of support to the Ministry of Health in the fight against Coronavirus in Uganda, Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA) in Uganda has installed a 5,000 litre Community hand-washing Station at Mbarara Referral Hospital in western Uganda.

CCBA, through Century and Rwenzori Bottling Companies in Uganda, has so far established five (5) 5,000litre Community Handwashing Stations for the general public use in Mukono (Namanve), Kampala (Kyambogo) and Mbarara (Makenke and Municipality).

General Manager Melkamu Abebe, in a message delivered by Mbarara Plant Manager Joackim Baluku, said the Company was committed to contributing to efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 in communities.

“Across the Coca-Cola system we always look for meaningful ways to contribute to our people, including the communities we serve. We are guided by our company purpose: refresh the world and make a difference in the community. We do what we do because we are people-centered. We provided safety measures inside our Plants to protect our employees and their families, and now with the community hand-washing Tanks we are extending that protection to the general public,” Abebe said.

Mbarara Referral Hospital Director Celestine Barigye said the hospital had established two hand-washing stations but was overwhelmed by the numbers of people flocking the hospital.

Hospital officials had raised concerns about long queues of people gathering at the stations to wash their hands, as an additional COVID-19 risk.

“When the Pandemic began, following the President’s advice we set-up the two hand-washing facilities but they were not enough. With this new addition we can ensure more people wash hands faster and increase the safety of all. We also needed an extra reservoir tank and we have now received it. The tank from Coca-Cola has a large capacity so water availability is guaranteed,” he said.

Mbarara Referral Hospital currently has eight COVID-19 patients and has so far discharged 21 who have recovered successfully. The hospital has a bed capacity to handle 30 patients at ago.

The CCBA handover on Wednesday also included 305 20-litre hand-washing Jerrycans for distribution at various busy points in Mbarara, handed to the COVID-19 District Task Force. This is part of the 5,000 hand-washing Jerrycans pledged for the national effort against COVID-19.

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, CCBA has provided several interventions including; food relief worth UGX390 million from The Coca-Cola Foundation, distributed through the Uganda Red Cross Society to vulnerable families affected by the lockdown; UGX85 million to the Ministry of Health to buy medical equipment and sundries; public awareness worth UGX460 million and three pick-up trucks for the Ministry of Health COVID-19 Task Force. So far the total contribution during this period is UGX1.3 billion.

By Our Reporter 

With the disruption caused by COVID-19, teaching is one of the professions that took a hit. It even gets harder for the private school teachers who are not earning salary as schools have been closed since March.

Emily Tumuheki, a private school teacher in Masaka, is one of the many teachers who have gone without pay since the closure of schools as a way of preventing the spread of the deadly Covid19.

Tumuheki, a resident of Nyendo town in Masaka district and a teacher of English at Kitendesa Modern Primary School reaped big from the on-going MoMoNyabo Together promotion as she won herself a whopping 5,000,000 Uganda shillings. The teacher could not believe her luck the moment she learnt that she had been chosen as a lucky winner in the MoMo Nyabo Together promotion.

When the hosts of the MoMo Nyabo Together show Zahara Totto and Patricko Mujuuka first contacted Tumuheki, she was in shock she decided to hand the phone to a friend of hers thinking she was getting conned. She however was able to compose herself and answer all five questions correctly.

While shedding tears of joy at her cheque handover, Tumuheki narrated how life had been so hard seeing as she was not earning and yet her bills kept on accumulating.

Tumuheki who hails from Ntungamo moved to Nyendo in search of greener pastures.

Currently, she is also pursuing a Bachelors degree in Secondary Education to grow her career.

The happy teacher was overwhelmed with the fact that she had indeed become a millionaire.

“I cannot imagine this real. This money will help me a lot. I plan on starting a shop where I can trade in food items like rice, sugar, salt and many others consumer goods.” Tumuheki said.

Tumuheki went on to add that because of COVID-19, she had resorted to quitting her job and starting something else but she did not have the capital to start her dream business.

“My life has drastically changed for the better,” said an excited Tumuheki in praise of the MTN MoMoNyabo promotion.

She named her mother, Frank Twikirize as her beneficiary. Twikirize was excited when her daughter called to ask if she had received 2,000,000 Uganda shillings that was sent to her phone. An excited Twikirize asked her daughter to thank MTN for remembering them.

“For one to get money in such times, it can only be by the grace of God,” Tumuheki said.

While handing over a dummy cheque, the Regional Manager Central Ssempuuma Jimmy congratulated Tumuheki Emilly upon her win. He also encouraged all MTN customers to continue using the MTN MoMo service, “You too can win like Tumuheki,” he said.

Tumuheki said she always used her MTN MoMo to buy airtime, minutes to make phone calls as well as data to surf the internet and social media. She thanked MTN for availing Ugandans with a chance to win money this year.

Apart from the winners called in studio, 250 people win 50,000 shillings directly every day. All you have to do is pay for airtime, bundles or any bill using MTN MoMo on the MyMTN app or dial *165# and stand a chance to win.
