TECNO Mobile Uganda and partners MTN Uganda and Startimes have today donated computers to five secondary schools in Mukono district.

The donation comes from proceeds of the second edition of Heroes in Color Run, a charity event organized by Tecno. The charity event is organized in collaboration with partners to raise awareness about various problems. The event that took place in September 2019 under the theme “Digitalizing the Future”.

The beneficiary schools that will each get desktops are Namilyango College, Kasawo Secondary school, Kasana Vocational School, Sir Apollo Kaggwa Senior Secondary School, and St. Charles Lwanga Senior Secondary School. The donation is part of TECNO’s efforts to contribute towards the introduction of ICT in schools.

“The world is too digital to leave our youngsters illiterate about digitalization. Almost everything nowadays is digitalized. Let’s educate those around us the benefits of living a digital life and how best to embrace digitalizing the future.” Said Shiva Zhong, Managing Director Tecno Uganda.

Charles Bakabulindi presided over the handover the desktops to the schools.

“Heroes in color” run is Tecno’s way of saying “Together we can”. It’s also a way of saying thank you to all their loyal customers, stakeholders and well-wishers for supporting them to be number one smartphone brand in Uganda.

“Digital illiteracy in Uganda is real and we recognize that fact. This year’s Heroes in Color run was under the theme “Digitalizing the future” and we feel it’s time we paid more attention to this since this is where the world is heading. Our desire is to see that everyone in Uganda is digitalized so as to live a better life,” Zhong said.

“We cannot digitalize Uganda alone, so we are absolutely grateful to hundreds of customers who turned up for this year’s Heroes in Color Run.  We thank our partners; MTN and Startimes for believing in our dream and joining us on this journey. We believe this is just the beginning of a bright ICT future all over Uganda.”Zhong said that the company selected a few schools in Mukono as a starting point on a long journey of digitalizing the future and called upon everyone to join this journey of digitalizing the whole Uganda.

“Heroes in Color Run is an important event on our Calendar, because of its essence. It’s a day we meet with our customers for a noble cause. It reaffirms our mission as a technology brand that has been in Uganda for close to 11 years, our passion for technology is evident with what we have produced over the years and most importantly we are here to give our customers best smartphones and be part of the journey of digitalizing Uganda.” Concluded Shiva

MTN Uganda is delighted to be part of this initiative. Through our Corporate Social Responsibility arm; the MTN Foundation, has and continues to be at the forefront of driving ICT literacy in schools across the country.

MTN Uganda has over the years executed several ICT education themed interventions like the support to KCCA funded Primary Schools, Public Libraries, ICT training in Vocational Institutes including St. Simon Peter located in Hoima, Amelo Technical Institute in Adjumani and St. Daniel Comboni in Moroto, among others. The MTN ICT Bus has reached over 45,000 learners in rural schools in various parts of Uganda since 2013. The MTN ICT bus is a fully equipped bus with essentials in ICT learning. It traverses the country, teaching and providing practical ICT experiences to pupils.

“The journey to developing our country is a shared one, and that’s why this partnership with Tecno is quite symbolic of the good that people, corporate companies and institutions of our country can do when we combine efforts,” said Sen Somdev, MTN Uganda acting Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re definitely good together as a team”, he further remarked.

Uganda developed its initial ICT national policy in 2003. The policy framework document recognized that Uganda would need to embrace the goal of “lifelong education for all.” The policy further addresses literacy improvement and human resource capacity-building with strategies that include Integrating ICT into mainstream educational curricula as well as other literacy programmes to provide for equitable access for all students regardless of level, developing and managing ICT centres of excellence to provide basic and advanced ICT training  to mention but a few.

While Uganda has had significant economic growth over the last decades, with a concomitant reduction of poverty, it remains one of the poorest countries in the world. It is, nevertheless, on track to meet the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of universal primary education and, according to the 2006 National Report,2 is committed to achieving the MDGs of universal completion of secondary schooling by 2015 and elimination of gender disparity in both primary and post-primary levels.

As Uganda adopts ICT in education, the country faces the same challenges as most developing economies – poorly developed ICT infrastructure, high bandwidth costs, an unreliable supply of electricity, and a general lack of resources to meet a broad spectrum of needs. However, with the rapid emergence of wireless network capacity and the ubiquitous growth of mobile phones, the context of the infrastructure is changing. A national ICT policy is in place and an education sector ICT policy is before Cabinet. The Ministry of Education and Sports is taking steps to co-ordinate ICT development and has allocated resources to support implementation of its ICT strategy.

In addition to all these strategies by government in conjunction of Ministry of education and sports, brands like TECNO and its partners; MTN and Startimes are helping to facilitate in the reduction of ICT illiteracy levels within Uganda by organizing such charity events like Heroes in Color Run.

StarTimes PR Manager Cleopatra Koheirwe said, “At StarTimes, we love to support great initiatives such as TECNO’s Heroes in Color Run. A cause that has to do with giving back to society and helping develop the youths matters a lot to us. This is why we were glad to be actively involved in supporting TECNO to “digitalize the future.” A lot has been said about ICT and how everything has gone digital these days which cannot be ignored. We have to keep up with the times. So it is of great importance that students learn computer skills and are technologically equipped in order to sustain themselves in this digital era. We congratulate the schools receiving computers and we hope that our contribution will go a long way in shaping their future.”

Mugwenu doctors restored my marriage, patient reveals

I know my wife likes remaining alone in silence. I have rarely found her nagging with other women on the plot. I always asked her why she does not like spending sometime with fellow women and she told me she doesn’t feel comfortable with that kind of life. That she is not that type.

However, after a very longtime she decided to open about her decision to remaining indoors most of the time even when she is idle. “I want to tell you something baba Jose,” she reckoned as I listened carefully. “I don’t like talking to my neighbor next door because she is no a good woman. I was told she is a notorious husband snatcher who has messed up two marriages on this plot. I am afraid of her,” she told me.

I asked her, “My dear so what makes you fear her if she has not strayed to your lane. Unless you have another reason,” But my wife looked at me directly and told me she has been overheard planning to wreck our house. That she has witchcraft she can apply and in just a single stroke of a finger, any man falls for her.

Sadly, after my wife had shared the story with me and dismissed it on arrival, next day when I was just strolling around the market after job in the evening, I met the neighbor by coincidence and she greeted me in my hand, something she had ever done. She also afforded a smile as she looked me straight into my eyes. I felt some strange feeling of love and tenderness.

It never crossed my mind that my wife had warned me before about this woman. She started looking very attractive and beautiful from that time when she greeted me. I came back to my house and from that day, never had to love my wife the way I used to. Infact on the very same evening I quarreled her over a very small matter. My love for her started to fade and shifted to the neighbor who every morning made sure she bids me bye from her door step as I drove for job. Our marriage started crumbling steadily as my wife became dissolution; she was never happy anytime I came home since she knew there was nolonger love in our house.

She asked me if we can relocate to another house away from where we lived but I instantly rejected that proposal. She had to run away from me back to her parents’ home. On my side, I was left with all the freedom with the neighbor now taking control. I thought I had won.

However, after just two weeks, I started missing my wife again, I felt like something had gone a miss. I wanted her home very fast. I organized to go and pick her at their home and luckily found her there sited comfortably with her mother chatting.

I was remorseful for the pain I had inflicted on someone who loved me during my difficult days. Someone who sacrificed her life for me when I was nothing. I talked to them when I was told to go back as they make arrangements on how she will be back after a week or so. I was not convinced though since I wanted her back immediately.

Luckily, she kept her promise and returned. We moved from where we were staying to another estate she wanted. After two months, she opened up about what she had to do to be able to get me back when she mentioned Mugwenu doctors. According to her, she was her mother who took her to the traditional herbalist to carry out some love spell casting which worked quite perfect.

The traditional doctor she says has spell casting powers that work within 24 hours. He handles general problems ranging from winning court cases, winning the lottery, protection of family and property, as well as accurate prediction of one’s future. He heals blood pressure, diabetes, ulcers, gonorrhea, syphilis, TB, and manhood weakness among other ailments.

The traditional doctor further solves life challenges, for instance, love issues, family problems, hardships in business, increases your luck which is in, winning lottery games and court cases, promotions at work and clears away devilish spirits and nightmares.

You can get the help you need wherever you are through distance healing. Mugwenu Doctors say one of their greatest attributes is distance healing: They will work together with you, but detachment is the key to success during this healing process. You must be in a quiet place and detach yourself from everything around you. This is very important because your body must connect with the healing elements.

Should you find that things are not working as you want them to, just connect with Mugwenu Doctors. Call – +254740637248. Website – www.mugwenudoctors.com

En-grieved family confesses getting priceless aid from the Mugwenu doctors

My step brother Jared refused to hand over our family title deed so that we can partition and share our ancestral land in peace. He kept the title deed and even managed to process a loan with it without our consent just because he thought he was rich and untouchable. He treated us with contempt and anytime we tried to ask him anything concerning that title deed, he would threaten to throw us out of the compound.

We lived in fear and under his mercies for a long time and not even the neighbours would dare question him anything. We actually wanted that document atleast so that we can also feel a sense of entitlement, after all, we were equally family members just like him.

But now that he had secured a loan using the same title deed, there is nothing we could do beyond just staying there and watch as he does his thing. It was sounded very painful living under a brother too hostile and who never cared about our welfare. He managed to reduce us into just squatters in our own home using his financial muscles. It was really bad for us.

“You must realize that you are strangers and you live under my mercy. Where did you leave your brains? If you feel! so aggrieved you can do what you want. I don’t care,” he told my mother when she tried to engage him on the subject. It is now our second year trying to see what we can do to have our piece of land but no good idea has popped up our minds.

But guess the power of internet! What it could do. It can do wonders. Having loved Google throughout my life, I managed to stumble across several real life stories about a herbalist by the name Mugwenu.

According to the description I found online, the traditional doctor’s spell casting powers work within 24 hours. He handles general problems ranging from winning court cases, winning the lottery, protection of family and property, as well as accurate prediction of one’s future. He heals blood pressure, diabetes, ulcers, gonorrhea, syphilis, TB, and manhood weakness among other ailments.

I thanked God for having found this useful information which I couldn’t doubt after having gone through hell in the hands of our arrogant brother. I had to convince my family to approach the medicine man so that he can deal with our step brother who had become a thorn in our flesh.

We reached to Mugwenu Doctors who cleansed our lives using some oil and spoke a few blessing words which breathed some hope and life into us before he let us go. It did not take long, just within three days, our brother was all over the place making confession on how he has been treating us. We couldn’t believe what was happening-he was running from one end of the compound to another as he revealed all his secrets. At that point, we knew Mugwenu amefanya mambo yake(The doctor had done his work perfectly).

The traditional doctor further solves life challenges, for instance, love issues, family problems, hardships in business, increases your luck which is in, winning lottery games and court cases, promotions at work and clears away devilish spirits and nightmares.

You can get the help you need wherever you are through distance healing. Mugwenu Doctors say one of their greatest attributes is distance healing: They will work together with you, but detachment is the key to success during this healing process. You must be in a quiet place and detach yourself from everything around you. This is very important because your body must connect with the healing elements.
