The Black Wall Street Economic War activist Charles N. Lambert is not about to give up until Africa achieves economic independence.  He has penned an educative letter telling how Africans especially Ugandans can win the Economic War.

In the letter, Lambert called on Ugandans to wake and know that we are Africa. “We are one, the boundaries were created by Europeans and no African was there, let us put Africa first,” he said.  Below is the full letter;

“I offered economic wisdom to them but they said I was Nigerian and the wisdom must be fraudulent. I provided jobs for thousands of their youth but they said I was using them.

I built the largest call center in Africa in their country but every day they sent local police to harass people there.

The call Centre set up by Development Channel

I gave a platform for their celebrities to shine on African stage but they said they are the ones who made me.

I exalted their President and referred to his wisdom but they said I am using his name to support my criminal intentions.

I told them their country could be great but even their top most leaders said I should rather do that for my own country.

Uganda, this boundary you refer to was designed by White people living in Europe in a meeting and most of them had never even been to Africa and not a single African was in the meeting that created what you now call Uganda. We are one people, one continent, one destiny. Africa First,” Lambert penned.

UBA Foundation Commemorates 2020 International Day of the African Child, Donates Thousands of Books across Africa

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

By ReporterUBA Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, on Wednesday joined the rest of the world to celebrate African children in this year’s edition of the International Day of the African Child.

June 16 every year, has been set aside by the United Nations as the International Day of the African Child to celebrate children in Africa where it recognizes the courage of students who marched for their right to better education in Soweto South Africa, and as an institution that cares about the education and welfare of the African child, UBA through its Foundation marks this all important event annually.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown on educational institutions, UBA Foundation was not able to visit schools and community centres as is its usual practice, however, the Foundation held activities online, where students of secondary schools were afforded the opportunity to watch and listen to virtual mentoring and reading sessions.

During the virtual session, the Managing Director, UBA Foundation, Bola Atta, spoke to the students on various issues, ranging from financial literacy and the importance of imbibing good reading culture to nation building. She also explained why UBA Foundation centres on three key pillars of Education, Empowerment and Environment, adding that the bank through its foundation, recognises the huge role that education and indeed a good reading culture has to play in the lives of the youth.

She said, “These days school children barely make out time to read and are easily distracted by the presence of electronic social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others; and to curb this declining culture of reading across the continent, UBA Foundation came up with the ‘Read Africa’ project, designed to resuscitate the reading culture amongst our youths across the African continent. 

“As a pan-African institution, we believe that the future of Africa lies in her youth and for this reason, UBA Foundation is actively involved in facilitating educational projects and bridging the literacy-wide gap on a pan-African scale, and is helping to rekindle the dwindling reading and literacy culture amongst African youths as they pursue their education,” Atta said.

While emphasising the belief that a highly educated and well-informed youth is critical to the future of Africa, Atta seized the opportunity to read a few passages of the recommended novel to students and encouraged them to visit the UBA Foundation website on www.ubagroup.com/uba-foundation, register and gain access to read some more at their leisure.

UBA through its Foundation believes that quality education is crucial in developing the manpower needed by Africa to exploit emerging opportunities and propel the continent to higher levels of development. 

Last month, the bank also held its UBA Conversations, an annual event commemorating the Africa Day, where world presidents and leaders contributed to discussions aimed at propelling African growth post covid-19.

As a Pan African Institution, UBA is in the forefront of promoting Africa and African values, especially in the areas of economic development for the continent. Operating in 20 African countries and globally in the United Kingdom, the United States and France, the bank has a strong record of supporting its communities, through challenging times.
