Keep safe: Kampala on lock down, the president’s directive

By Our Reporter

You all must have heard the news by now, if not fell it. The City is on a lockdown of sorts, movement is allowed but staying at home is generally what has been suggested. To ensure this is enabled, public transport has been postponed for at least two weeks whilst private cars are not allowed to carry no more than three people, including the driver.

Got Ngetta: Lira’s beautiful treasure

By Our Reporter

Nestled in a rocky outer edge of Lira town, Got Ngetta is quite the site. A magnificent solid rock standing at whole 4,500ft above sea level. Imagine that! Legend has it that in the 16th century, the present day tribes of Teso, Karamojong, Acholi, Langi, Kumam and Japhadola all belonged to the Langi tribe. A legend many will beg to differ, but does in fact hold some water. Because well, Ngetta zone was their home. And who wouldn’t want to have hailed from such beauty?

A story is told of a king, a very gutsy king. He remains the greatest king of Bunyoro Kingdom. Omukama Kabalega, what a king. A man remembered for his incomparable attempts at protecting his people from the British colonialists who had then taken over the Buganda Kingdom.

Gipir and Labongo: A journey into the Acholi and Alur story

By Solomon Oleny

Gipir and Labongo, what a time old legend! Dating far back into the 15th Century, its climax sits atop a spot on the Albert Nile called Wang-Lei. With a genesis almost dismissable, this story is so pertinent. See, back then, each Luo family had an ancestral spear it held very strong attachment to. It was a symbol of leadership and authority. 

The ‘God’ in Western Ugandan names

By Edwin Nuwagaba

The Western part of the country is a hub of names exalting God. Interesting, right? Ever wondered why? Natukunda (He loves us), Nuwazuna (He is the one who saves), Mwesigye (trust Him), I could go on all day. It is a long story, one I will be delving into. You see, long time ago,   the land that Banyakitara (Banyankore, Bakiga, Batoro and Banyoro) occupy today, was once occupied by a people known as Batembuzi. ‘Batembuzi’ comes from the word ‘okutemburura’ which means ‘taking over a place which was once unutilized, and then developing it’.

MARRYING THE ACHOLI GIRL IS A TEST OF LOVE!

By Caroline Ariba

I can almost still hear him. The roar in his voice, the pride, the command. I hear it. It plays like a tape in my head, over and over.  I see his face, tough and very matter-of-fact-like; the veins poking through his sun-kissed skin meant business! I still see it all. The bride’s uncle was not taking prisoners, he had arrived

Fantastic offers at Brovad sands lodge , Samuka Island Jinja , Simba safaris in Queen Elizabeth.
