I live in a beautiful town in the north of England.I was raised in Central Uganda ,East Africa. I’ve got a lot of passion in the history and politics of Uganda.I’m a sports enthusiast, with an uncontrollable love for football. I am a devoted follower of the premiership especially everything concerning Chelsea FC.
I’m a Human Rights Activist and blogger -the founder and chief administrator of: Ugandans at Heart (UAH) , Ekitibwa Kya Buganda(EKB) , Jjangu Onkwekule and Uganda Muslim Brothers and Sisters(UMBS) blogs. UAH can be found at http://ugandansatheart.org/while UMBS can be found at http://um-bs.com/organisation/ and EKB can be found at http://ekitibwakyabuganda.wordpress.com/ .
Jjangu Onkwekule has got a lot of latest reports about Africa in the contest of the overall international community, and is an extension of UAH. It can be found at: http://jjanguonkwekule.blogspot.com/
I thank all those, some I know, some I don’t know, who individually promote articles on these blogs on facebook and other social media. I also thank some people in the media in Uganda that have formed some form of partnership with us to promote articles on our several websites.
I created this particular blog to discuss anything and everything that pops in my head, and I dont give a damn if you like what I write or not. I particularly started this blog to share some of the information I contribute on the Ugandans At Heart (‘UAH’) and other forums. This was a result of people asking for the same information already discussed on various forums.I also figured a blog would be one way to go about sharing my life with people.
‘UAH’ forum and its sister blogs were started as links between Ugandans at home and abroad. As of October 2015, UAH forums had got a membership of over 100,000 Ugandans spread all over the world.
There is a lot of interesting information on our websites or blogs that is useful to students of political science and theology, journalists, politicians or academic researchers.
I would also like to inform the Muslim community in Uganda and abroad that we started up a forum – to debate issues affecting Muslims in Uganda. We called it Uganda Muslim Brothers & Sisters (UMBS). We are in the process of transforming it [UMBS] into an internationally recognised organisation after its initial registration in Uganda. I’m the first president of UMBS but obviously we shall give a chance to members to elect their own representatives as the organisation gradually grows into something more admirable. This was a decision reached after seeing rapid growth of membership of the forum. As of September 2015, UMBS forums had a membership of over 60,000 Muslims spread all over the world.
I have written a lot of stuff about different issues though I first developed an interest in writing while still undergraduate in my last year at Leeds Metropolitan University (United Kingdom) where I wrote an article about: ‘‘ how the hospitality industry in the UK should contribute to reduction of obesity in the country”. It was a well researched article that later got published by one of the top hospitality magazines in the UK. The editor sent me two copies of their magazines which I have kept up to now. I did my post-graduate studies in Public Health at the same university( Leeds Metropolitan University) in the UK.
And this is from the heart:
My dream is to be a successful farmer in my old age, and I’m sure it will make me happy as I dont need much in this life. It’s just that the idea of growing my own food, eating organic food every day, breathing oxygen from trees and stuff, looking after some animals, and making some money out of it, is so appealing to me. I also like the peaceful community spirit in rural areas where everybody tends to know everybody, the privileged ones are helping those indigent, no religious discrimination of any sort, saying hello to everyone you meet on the way, and community gatherings on weekends to sort out Issues, e.t.c. Unfortunately, the current Uganda government has made it difficult for someone to become rich out of farming, and villages aren’t as they used to be in the past. So, everyone is running to Kampala!
I’m pretty new to this, so leave a comment, poke around my mediocre twitter, or shoot me a message via the contact form/facebook. And please subscribe/share!
Either way, appreciate you coming by.
