Mr. Eazi thrills fans at album listening party

By Our Reporter

On a Friday like this one, many of us would be gearing up for some great weekend fun. At the strike of 5pm, we would shut down our computers as we make those phone calls, send messages, drop pins so our buddies can join us, party hard, and later flood our social media timelines with ‘the weekend that was” photos of us having the time of our lives, letting off some steam after a long week on the grind.

However, that is not the case today as we have all taken a step back into our homes to wait for the world to heal. But who says we can’t have fun at home? We can do several things to help calm our raving waves of boredom as we stay home and stay safe. And yes! Music, like they say, heals the soul! It even gets better if you are an MTN TIDAL user!

The Tidal team at MTN, together with both local and international artistes have put together the most entertaining and groovy music playlists to keep you entertained while at home. On the Tidal app, you will find more lockdown playlists than you can consume. And the best part is there is something for everyone! And there is a play list for any mood; Partying, working, exercising, meditation, children’s music and of course the most amazing praise and worship music.

So while we keep indoors, let us live a little and turn up the music with TIDAL!

In case you didn’t get the memo, it is Friday. So feel the weekend set in as it should be. Get ready to unwind and kick off the “work” stress you could have gotten from the work days at home. Grab your favorite drink (thankfully we can order these) and sit back, chill and connect your phone to your speaker as you get the latest dance party playlists off tidal that will help with setting the mood. Don’t get shy to dance like you would if you were on a night out with the girls or the boys. Let’s look at the bright side, this time round, you won’t have to worry what time to order the Uber or how you get home. Absolutely no stress!

Stay home, but don’t forget to stay fit and in shape with TIDAL.

We wouldn’t want you to return to office after this lockdown out of shape simply because all you did was eat, sleep and eat some more. For long many have said work outs not only help in keeping the body fit and in shape rather can also be used as a stress reliever. It is no secret that workouts and music go hand in hand like bread and butter. Let Tidal’s invigorating work out playlists get you breaking a sweat as you whip yourself into shape. The world is waiting to meet your new hot body!

What is Sunday without some Inspirational music form TIDAL?

Your answer is as good as mine. Just another ordinary day. So make yours count by ending the week on a good soothing happy note. Close the week and start the new week in a good emotional place by streaming the best inspirational and gospel playlists from Tidal. So don’t miss out. Plug in and get spirit filled as you sing along in adoration of God as we pray and continue to intercede having faith that our creator will heal the world and rid us of this pandemic.

To catch up on all this fun, all you have to do is download the Tidal app from your google play store and get a free trial subscription. If you already have the app, just dial *165*66# and get a subscription of your choice and get grooving already. If you are street smart like me, then you already know that the subscription that comes with streaming data is the best! Go have a blast.

Thank God Its Friday!

Survivors of 2010 terrorist attacks give testimonies of how Prophet Mbonye prophesied tragedy before it happened in new documentary

By Our Reporter

Several Christians and followers of Prophet Elvis Mbonye, of Zoe International Ministries, who survived the 2010 Al- Shabaab terrorist attacks in Uganda that occurred at Kyadondo Rugby grounds and Ethiopian Village, Restaurant in Kabalagala, respectively, have given touching testimonies of how the man of God prophesied the horrible incident just a month before it happened!

In their chilling confessions, the Christians, most of them survivors of the terrorist attacks at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds, gave their confessions in a new documentary filmed by Zoe Ministries, in which they all revealed how Prophet Mbonye told them during a conference held in May 2010 that he had received a vision from God about a pending terrorist attack in Uganda, although none of them knew it would really happen just a month after the prophesy.

It is now exactly 10 years since the brutal attacks on July 10th, 2010, which left over 74 people dead and at least 71 injured after the Al-Shabaab terrorists exploded bombs in a fully-packed rugby field where soccer fans were watching the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals.

Frank Kakooza, who survived the bomb blast at Kyadondo Rugby grounds, said that “I just heard a blast. I can’t even tell you how loud it was But the State has to come out clearly and respect the word of prophesy that comes out of Prophet Mbonye, because he has been saying things which have come to pass. For instance he prophesied about Trump, The choppers, this bloodshed that happened in Lugogo; now why don’t you talk to that person? Fore warned is forewarned; Why wouldn’t anyone want to listen to him?”

Judith Akankwasa, another survivor, added that “we were screaming and scampering for our lives. Not many of us; really few of us had sensed that this was an attack. What made it even more interesting was the sound behind us of a second explosion. My instinct told me to take cover and I was crying to God; have mercy on me. I repent. I repent. But I was astonished to later know that the man of God had actually seen this before hand and he had endeavoured to warn his people. This message was out there although it wasn’t received by everyone, it was out there. I am amazed at what God can do.”

Robert Semujju, whose head was partly shattered by shrapnel from the bomb, miraculously survived the explosion, said that; “I was seated, watching the match. Then all of a sudden I don’t know what happened next. My skull had been blown to the extent that even part of it was shattered and it was open. I think God never wanted me to see that situation anymore. Because after Lugogo, me I went to the mortuary directly. It’s by his God grace, I am here. But later I recalled the man (Mbonye) had prophesied about it. Meaning that through him, God had warned about what was going to come.

Annet Bananuka, a teacher, said that “When I heard news of the attack, I remembered that I had been at a conference during which Prophet Mbonye had warned of the first ever terrorist attack in Uganda. He said he could see an explosion. He could see bloodshed.”

Prophet Mbonye has since prophesied about several other events that have come to pass. For instance, in 2012 he prophesied that Uganda would be engulfed in grief after losing some of her citizens in a plane crash and asked Christians to pray about it. Just a few weeks after he had pronounced the prophesy Uganda lost gallant soldiers who perished in a chopper crash that occurred on Mount Kenya. Seven out of a 28-member crew lost their lives when the Mi-24 chopper failed to negotiate the 17,000 foot altitude of Mt Kenya.

Dishonesty is causing conflict at family and community level, how ACORD Uganda is tackling this in Wakiso

Published

By Staff Writer

“Children of God are peaceful, where there is conflict, then they focus all efforts on making peace.” These were the words of Rev. Father Kato Adolf while he was talking about peacebuilding to the different staff members from several organizations in Bundibugyo district recently.

Naturally, families are supposed to peaceful to each other and exercise love as these are the same people who live together, care about each other and share several other things. They are children of God; they are supposed to be peaceful. But when conflict arises, it must be changed to peace.

Dishonesty is one of the issues causing conflict at family and community levels in Uganda. ACORD Uganda has however been proactive enough as to take the first step and tackle this issue in Wakiso. The dishonesty in some families in Wakiso area are not caused by alien issues, it always zeros down to the issue of openness. This is not limited to the families themselves but also cuts across to the leadership. Through partnerships such as the one with Girls for Girls (G4G) dialogue, that aims to help young women develop the courage, vision, and skills to take on public leadership, ACORD Uganda is acting fast in Wakiso district to tackle this conflict.

Speaking at the G4G dialogue session recently, Nabikofu Fatumah one of the panelists of the day confirmed that dishonesty is causing conflict at family and community level. She advocated for openness among families and the community leadership to be able to foster peace. “Lack of transparency by the community leaders across the region. When this is achieved, the issue of dishonesty at family and community level in Wakiso district will be a thing of the past.”

What makes this issue worse is that not only Wakiso district is affected but several other districts in Uganda. It may not have happened by now, but it could happen eventually. Many youths have all witnessed conflict in one way or another and some have gone further to find out what has caused it.

The good news is that conflict negotiation, reconciliation, mediations and several other methods have been employed by ACORD Uganda to curb on conflict in the families and communities of Wakiso district and Uganda at large through peacebuilding.

The onus is on the youth of society to identify these conflicts and speak out openly about them so that we can all start a new journey to peacebuilding since we are all children of God who are supposed to be peaceful.

A peaceful Uganda that starts with you and how you can play your part.

We know that we all have a role to play when it comes to our societies. No matter who you are, how old you are, or what you do, this is a matter that concerns us all. However, the youth who make up over 70 percent of the Ugandan population, have an even bigger role since the future belongs to them. 

One of the key things about being happy and being able to make a positive contribution to society is having peace. This enables anyone be young or old to express their full potential and for the youth is helps them to harness their potential for sustaining the peace in their society.

Even when you look at securing a peaceful, just and inclusive society, it will always come back to you. The youth may wonder what it takes. Some may say, it has all be done and it still being done. This is the point where the same question that has always come up shows its face, why is our society still the same or worse becoming the opposite of what we want it to be? The interesting thing about all these questions is that it will always come back to you. What are you doing to achieve peacebuilding in your society?

The truth is nothing will or can change unless you change. You start are the one to start and we will follow. You are the one to lead and we will follow. You are the one to act and we will follow.

You would never be peaceful and face war, you would never be just and meet injustice, when you are peaceful and just, your environment will be inclusive and complete.

The takeout here for Ugandan youth is to be peaceful and just to create an inclusive society for all. The fear and violence will not have to even exist with ladies and gentlemen of peace and justice in Uganda. 

Remember the words of Rev. Mukonzo Ezra Yongeza at the ACORD Uganda peacebuilding training in Kasese about the youth position in peacebuilding, he said; “The youth are the wall of every building the iron sheets are the elders who are supported by the youth who are the majority and energetic. The moment the youth are equipped, the world changes. The adults have tried for many years and things are the way they are, the youth need to be supported too.”

We all need to do our part to foster peaceful, just, and inclusive societies in Uganda that are free from fear and violence.
