 Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni met with the President of StarTimes Group Pang Xinxing on Wednesday when he was attending the Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in Beijing. Mr Pang Xinxing introduced that StarTimes created more than 6000 job opportunities since it started investment in Uganda in 2009 and StarTimes digital TV transmission platforms have enabled Ugandan people to watch rich international and local television programs with an affordable price. Pang said: “We look forward to expanding further bilateral cooperation with our advantageous technology and media resources.” President Museveni appreciated StarTimes’ contribution in Uganda’s digital migration progress and the project of “Access to Satellite TV for 10,000 African Villages”.
He said that the national digital migration is a very important fundamental project for Ugandan people and it wouldn’t be achieved without StarTimes’ involvement. Museveni also invited Pang to visit Uganda with hoping that StarTimes can have more investment in the country.

StarTimes now is the biggest digital TV operator in Uganda with holding 75% market because of affordabl prices and rich content services. In August, StarTimes just unveiled the biggest ever single sponsorship in the history of Uganda www.startimestv.com sport after remarkably securing the Uganda Premier League and FUFA Big League “Title and Broadcasting Rights” from FUFA for a staggering US$ 7,240,000 for 10 years starting with the
2018/2019 season. The Vice President of StarTimes Uganda company, Mr Aldrine Nsubuga said: “We however don’t just want to entertain football fans with foreign football, we want to be relevant to local football fans. We want them to appreciate their local football and support it with a greater passion which is why we want to bring the local league in every household through our broadcast platforms.” The project of “Access to Satellite TV for 10,000 African Villages” is a China-Africa Cooperation program, which was announced by Chinese President Xi Jinping on December 4th, 2015 when he was present at the Johannesburg Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation. The project is aimed at enabling African families in rural areas to have access to the digital signal with high-quality images and rich TV programs. There will be around 10,000 villages in more than 20 African countries benefiting from the project of “Access to Satellite TV for 10,000 African Villages”. For Uganda, 500 villages are
included in this China-Africa cooperation project. As Africa’s leading digital TV operator, StarTimes is undertaking the whole project. On 20th July, StarTimes launched the project of “Access to Satellite TV for 10,000 African Villages” in Uganda.

Championed by Environment Social Safeguards International (ESSI) in partnership with Coca-Cola Beverages Africa(CCBA) in Uganda and National Forestry Authority, the initiative targets to plant over 4000 trees in effort to conserve the environment.

“I am excited to be working with ESSI on this campaign to plant trees across the country and want to encourage all Ugandans to join this initiative,” Kenzo said. “Planting a tree is a blessing because you are giving life while also making our country look beautiful. It is time for us to all go green.”

According to Khasim Ngabirano, the CEO Environment Social Safeguard International, the campaign aims to create awareness about the importance of tree planting in combating negative effects of climatic change. He noted that trees play an essential role in mitigating the impact of climate change and we therefore should act now to mitigate its negative effects.

Simon Kaheru, the Public Affairs & Communications Director Coca-Cola Beverages Africa in Uganda expressed excitement about this partnership saying: “We are looking to beat climate change but also protecting the environment by planting trees. Planting trees is one of the most important things we can do as Coca-Cola Beverages Africa in Uganda to contribute to conserving the environment.

“At Coca-Cola, we place priority on watershed protection and conservation, and we are proud of the work that ESSI has done in Uganda to help restore trees. The trees not only add beauty and provide shade but they also provide a barrier to storms and help retain water in the soil, which is very important for the country.”

Uganda’s forest cover has been depleted to 8% up from 24% in 1990s, and this is largely attributed to human encroachment for different activities such as agriculture and urbanization.

Rema in Tikula video

By Our Reporter

Singer Rema Namakula has dismissed reports claiming that she is choking on debts.

It had been alleged that Rema had sold off several of her valuable assets to fund her introduction ceremony. The rumors become rife after it emerged that the singer’s car, a Prado TX model, had also been put on sale soon after her introduction. It was alleged this was the singer’s effort to raise more money to pay off debts.

Speaking to media on Wednesday, the “Gutujja” hitmaker insisted that the sale of her car has nothing to do with her current financial position, adding that all the service providers were duly paid.

“You saw how big my introduction ceremony was. The money from selling the car would not have even been enough to feed the guests.” Rema said.

“I am not in debt, and that is one thing I am very scared of,” she added. “I always pay all my service providers promptly and this is why you have never seen anyone come out complaining or say I have defaulted.”

Rema introduced her lover, Dr Hamza Sebunya, in a lavish ceremony that was held in November last year.
