It is believed that the drug – which is legal in a number of American states – can also shrink some of the most serious types of brain tumours.

The research was carried out by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), which is funded by the federal government.

Part of a NIDA publication reads: ‘Recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others.

‘Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumors.

‘Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation.’

It comes as a bill is being put together which would re-categorise cannabis to a new level that states it has some medicinal value.

While eulogizing his mother at All Saints Church, Mwenda described her as the most beautiful chic that ever lived. But one could not help but see the pain in his statements.

At 12 noon, Adyeeri Constance Muhangazima, was laid to rest in the great village of Kanyandahi.

Andrew Mwenda then took to Twitter to express his current pain and depression. He called it the biggest blow ever. He talked of feeling all lost and alone.

We can only pray for the best of comforting to the old man of the clan. Losing a mother is surely the hardest thing that ever happens to anyone in life. There is no hole deeper. It is a hole that cuts through a soul.

Banzega: How Kisekka Market Mechanics Rob Car Owners; Ring Leader Revealed

Published

By Staff Writer

Many people in the past have shared nasty tales about their experiences with Kisekka market mechanics.

BigEye.ug was able to speak to some mechanics who work at Kisekka market who revealed how the car repair scams happen. At Kisekka market, you basically pay for zero repairs on your car.

According to this mechanic, it is a big mistake for one to come by this area without calling up a specific mechanic. “We have cheap, good quality spare parts. But one should know that it usually doesn’t come cheap.”

These mechanics target naive drivers. They will warn you about someone wrong with your tyre and immediately offer a quick 5 minutes fix.

Before long others are taking off other tyres and claiming to be replacing car parts. Afterwards, they will give you a bill while your car has been stripped bare to the rims.

In order to survive, one has to pay or else the car won’t move. In Kisekka market, they call this method: “Banzega and Kusula masasi.”

We were also told that the ring leader is a one Bibi Atiriba; he runs his crime ring together with the nearby police post which takes a share of every bill. The police post will always rule in favour of the mechanics. “That guy has been to every prison in the country. He is feared by everyone. He is like a Kitatta but much more influential. He often brags that only Museveni can order him around,” this insider revealed to us.

“If you want your car to be repaired well, then it is best to just go straight to him. Or else wait to be scammed while in kisekka market.”
