The first bank in The Ganda Kingdom

By Henry Lubega

Posted  Sunday, March 1  2015 

  

Before 1906, there was no banking institution in Uganda until November of the same year when the national Bank of India opened its first branch in Entebbe, and four years later it opened the first bank in Kampala, although it was later taken up to become Grindlys Bank.

The National Bank of India was followed by Standard Bank of South Africa Limited when on September 19, 1912, it opened its first branch in Kampala. And a few years later it opened another branch in Jinja.

Barclays

Barclays followed in 1927 when it opened two branches in Kampala and Jinja. In 1954 three more banks; Bank of Baroda, Bank of India and The Nedelandsche Handel-Maatschappij M.V (Netherlands Trading Society) opened in Uganda.

According to Saben’s commercial directory and handbook of Uganda, as early as 1949 the banking system had been established in Uganda but did not control much of the financial liquidity that was in circulation across the board in the country.

“Much of the money was controlled in the bazaars and other channels which were predominantly controlled by people of the Asian origin. These people played a key role in the buying of cotton.

However, areas where banks were non-existent, merchants in those areas played the part of the banks. This was through taking drafts in exchange for cash or physical items in exchange for hard cash,” Saben wrote.

By 1950, it was realised that to bring more Africans into the business there was need to provide them with credit. Unfortunately, the commercial banks at the time would not extend credit to Africans because of the nature of their securities.

Under Ordinance number 20 of 1950 the Uganda Credit and Saving Bank was created purposely to extend credit facilities to Africans with the aim of furthering agriculture, commercial building and co-operative society purposes.


On October 2, 1950, the bank was opened and by 1961 it had spread to places like Arua, Fort Portal, Jinja, Soroti, Gulu, Masaka and Mbale, taking only African deposits.

Building Society

Two years later, the first Building Society in Uganda was opened as a subsidiary of a Kenyan owned firm Savings and Loans Society Limited. 

More financial institutions continued to open up in Uganda with Lombard Bank from Kenya, in partnership with Uganda Development Corporation, opening the Lombank Uganda Limited in 1958. It was this bank which first introduced the hire purchase system of shopping in Uganda.


It was not until 1966 that through an act of Parliament that Bank of Uganda was created. Prior to this, issues to do with money were handled by the East African currency board which had its head offices in Kenya.

In daddy’s scientific footsteps: With her 5th degree, Butambala girl lives the American dream:

Written by Joseph W. Kamugisha & Ronnie Mayanja

 Created: 29 May 2012

 

PhD Holder: Dr Sala Nanyanzi Senkayi(centre) and mother(right) and supervising Professor(left)




   Sala and her Daddy.

It is every parent’s dream to see their children grow up and graduate from university.

But often do you meet a five-degree holder, topped off with a Doctorate degree or PhD?

Well, recently the Ugandan community in Dallas Fort Worth not only embraced one, they also welcomed their community’s first and youngest female PhD holder in the names of Dr Sala Nanyanzi Senkayi. It has been a long time coming for the young lady, the daughter of Dr Abu Senkayi (PhD) and Sunajeh Senkayi, having began her humble journey at Texas A&M University, with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) degree.

She would later pick up two other B.Sc degrees and a Master of Science degree) from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). And then came her PhD in environmental science from the same University of Texas at Arlington, for which she wrote a dissertation on “Proximity to Airport and Cancer Incidences in Texas”.

Many people will be familiar with the adage that it takes a village to raise a child; that is what many friends and well wishers of the Senkayi family said during Sala’s graduation party. The proud parents could be seen beaming with excitement as speaker after speaker, spoke about their daughter’s achievement.

Emcee Frank Sentamu, added excitement to the evening when he suggested that the two doctors should change their names to Dr Senkayi Senior and Dr Senkayi Junior as a way of separating father and daughter.

The journey that first inspired the young Sala could be traced back to her childhood. According to her father, on the day he got his PhD, Sala ran to the stage, grabbed her Dad’s hat and put it on her own head, as if to suggest that one day she would wear her own. Several years passed but Dr Abu Senkayi did not imagine ever having the pleasure of participating in the hooding process of his only daughter.

The hooding process is normally reserved for the graduate’s major professor, but in one of those rare occasions when a parent of the student is a Doctorate degree holder, the pleasure and opportunity of carrying out this exercise is often passed on to the parent, which in this case was Dr Abu Senkayi an environmental scientist himself.

Sala owes her success to the inspiration and support of her parents, and brother Ali Senkayi, an electrical engineer. She is also quick to mention the collective effort of many other community friends and relatives who encouraged her along her academic journey.

Dr Abu Senkayi, an official Buganda Kingdom representative in North America, also mentioned that Sala had been involved in planning for Buganda cultural activities in Dallas. In 2001, young as she was, Sala played a prominent role during Kabaka Ronald Mutebi’s, visit to Dallas. The same was the case when the Nnabagereka of Buganda, Sylvia Nnaginda, visited in 2005.

The Senkayi family, originally from Kibibi in Butambala, left Uganda in the 1970s and settled in the United States. They visit Uganda regularly and were here only last December, to participate in the Ugandan Diaspora conference the Serena Hotel. Dr Sala is also an active community organizer who spends time going to schools and colleges to talk about Environmental protection.

Besides her commitment to the community, Sala maintains a full time job in the same office block and department with her father, at the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Her EPA mentor proudly noted, during the evening graduation dinner, that Sala is “a very dedicated girl, who takes her job very seriously and devotes a lot of time into everything she does.”

Before Sala joined her father as an EPA employee, the father remembers bringing her to the office on special days when employees are allowed to bring their children to the office. One could say that all this gave the little girl some early inspiration to follow in her dad’s footsteps.

But when asked why she chose environmental science Sala said: “I’m not trying to follow my dad’s footsteps per se, because I like Biology and my dad is a soil scientist. But I also like my dad because he is a cool guy!”

Sala says she enjoys her work environmental protection, and her fellowship in the Ugandan community. “Getting a degree is just part of the story” she says. “Making friends, helping each other, as Ugandan community members to advance each other, is what will help us succeed here in the Diaspora.”

With her five degrees, the single Dr Sala intends to keep her job at EPA, although she could go into academia; and she still cherishes working with children on environment-related programmes.

“I can now say that I’m free at last,” she says. “I have all the time I need to live and enjoy my life.”

Posted  Friday, May 27  2016

Kampala in the State of Buganda:
Kabaka Ronald Mutebi on Wednesday, 25th May 2016,  launched a book about the struggles of his late father and former Buganda king, Edward Muteesa II, touching on Uganda’s history before and after independence.

The book titled The Brave King, revisits the stories of Muteesa’s exiling, first between 1953 and 1955, and again from 1966 to 1969 when he died in London. The author, Mr Patrick Makumbi, drew from the documents preserved by his father, 99-year-old Thomas Makumbi, who was an official at Mengo, Buganda’s power capital.

“I was very happy to write the preface to this book,” Kabaka Mutebi said, adding: “It will help the readers understand what Kabaka Muteesa went through in those days.”

When Mutesa was exiled in 1953, the older Makumbi, the father of the author, led a team of six Buganda officials to negotiate with the British about the king’s return to Buganda, which was secured in 1955. The other members of the team were Mr Apollo Kironde, Mr Matayo Mugwanya, Mr Amos Sempa, Mr Eridadi Mulira and Mr Ernest Kalibbala.

Kabaka Mutebi, while officiating at the function, called on more people to document what they saw during those days, saying “it is a good thing” that some of those who witnessed or participated in the events are still alive. Muteesa himself wrote about the period in question in his autobiography, The Desecration of my Kingdom, and Kabaka Mutebi’s endorsement of Mr Makumbi’s new book will be seen as an extension of the kingdom’s bid to manage the narrative.

Mr Apollo Makubuya, Buganda’s third deputy Katikkiro, at the launch held at Bulange-Mengo said there have been attempts to misrepresent history by “those who do not like us”.

Accusations and counter accusations of betrayal between Buganda Kingdom and Obote are rooted in a rather happy start, when Buganda’s party Kabaka Yekka (KY) teamed up with Obote’s Uganda People’s Congress to defeat the Democratic Party and form government at independence in 1962.

But the two centres of power soon quarrelled violently and were involved in what many have regarded as a critical turning point in Uganda’s history. The army, on Obote’s orders, stormed Muteesa’s palace on May 24, 1966, killing multitudes and forcing the king-president into exile.

Mr Makubuya said his grandfather was among those killed during the attack, an occasion the kingdom commemorates yearly on May 24. He said in addition to explaining how Buganda and Muteesa suffered during that period, Mr Makumbi’s book will clarify a number of other issues, including how colonialism thwarted Buganda’s development efforts.

He said Buganda stiffly resisted colonialism and the demands of colonial governor Andrew Cohen in particular, to the extent of winning a court case in London against the exiling of Muteesa. In all its efforts, Mr Makubuya said, Buganda was consistently seeking autonomy, and that the kingdom can “never” lose sight of this objective.

Mr Makumbi, the author, said his father could not attend the launch due to old age.

The publication of the book was financed by Dr Colin Sentongo, who said at the launch that KY, which ceased to exist in the 1960s, is the only political party he has ever belonged to.

The fathers of Mr Makumbi and Dr Sentongo met with Muteesa as students at Kings College Budo, from where, Mr Sentongo said, the three men forged a life-long friendship. It is probably much for this reason that Kabaka Mutebi warmed up to Mr Sentongo and Mr Makumbi at the launch.

In Uganda, most likely, Archbishop Lwanga will be conned of State House money he has accepted:

Mr Yusuf Serunkuma

 

 

Those who have visited the bowels of State House at Entebbe or Nakasero tell glowing stories of piles after piles of cash securely stashed in there.

Entrance is highly restricted. Lanky mean-looking fellows – keep close guard of these mega-size coffers. For those who have been lucky to drop in either as fumigants, electricians and sometimes helping hands with counting (big money is counted via weighing scales or estimated in bundles), or packaging for dispatch to different missions, the experience is overwhelming.

Once in, one is welcomed by the compelling fragrance of new bills. Like freshly cut wood. Either recently shipped from Bank of Uganda – the budget allocation of State House donations – or brought in by cheerful fellas looking for or appreciating favours from the president.

Our loquacious chroniclers tell stories of overwhelming spread-out rooms of cash in all forms: local and regional currencies, the US Dollar, the Pound Sterling, Francs, Riyals, the Ruble, and Euros. Even the highly restricted Chinese RMB, I am told, is plentiful behind those walls.

Bundles of cash are meticulously lined up like books in a library. My mind drifted back to these State House money fables when the president offered my mentor, Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, Shs 500 million to support church projects.

For those who may not know, the archbishop and I come from neighbouring villages in Kyampisi sub-county, Mukono district.

The archbishop is one of our village heroes. My parents settled here in the early 1990s, and we were lucky to become neighbours with the archbishop’s family. I studied at Bishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga secondary school, Kyabakadde.

While Bishop of Kasana-Luwero diocese, Lwanga immensely contributed towards building this secondary school – which would be named after him. In the late 1990s, as one of the stars of the school (I was football team captain, and chairman of debating club), we looked to Bishop Lwanga for inspiration – and he offered a great deal of it!

During mass – and bishop often visited and led them – I was often selected to read the day’s scripture. To this day, Archbishop Lwanga remains a major source of inspiration. So, when he was offered money amidst claims the church he leads was suspected of subversive activities, my mind started racing.

It raced not because I would visit and remind him of our shared village roots and ask for some money, but I was tense of fear that my archbishop could be fleeced of this money.

Our president is on record saying most of his handlers are thieves. (Recall he had started moving with his money in sacks so as to give it out on the spot, cutting out handlers.

But we are told handlers made duplicate sacks which they filled with smaller bills!) Since donations are rarely wired through banks – often given out in sacks, vans, or envelopes depending on the amount – I started wondering from whose desk was the archbishop’s money going to come.

I need to explain this thing about money desks at State House: for presidential donations, there are two desks – both manned by women Maj Gen Proscovia Nalweyiso or Lucy Nakyoobe.

Nakyoobe is the official State House comptroller and responsible for dishing out official government donations.

But handlers do not like her desk since all monies departing it have to be signed for. Political offers, like the one my archbishop was receiving, may not necessarily be signed for.

This makes Nalweyiso – although her position in State House is not properly defined – the most popular teller as her monies are free of encumbrances. Once the president makes an offer, the beneficiary is given an intermediary to lead them to Nalweyiso who takes their details and offers to contact them when the delivery is ready.

Please do not harass her with phone call reminders. When Nalweyiso’s go-betweens contact you to deliver the package, they act like ghosts.

They may ask to find you at City Square at 10pm, but later change to Sheraton hotel parking yard. Interlocutors narrate that these God-blessed intermediaries, convinced it will take you years to see the president again, choose to deliver either half or quarter of the sum the president promised.

This was the basis of my worry. But while I grieved, I chastened myself with the thought that being the archbishop, Lwanga had a direct line to the president.

My friend Yusuf, such big time State House Money for the Africans has been flowing much since when the first Prime Minister Benedicto Kiwanuka resumed power around 1958/62. There was real shed of catholic tears when Benedicto Kiwanuka failed to make a come back after being defeated in the repeat national polls of early 1961/62.

 

 

 

 

Excitement as The Kabaka of Buganda visits Kayunga again

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 26 2016

Buganda, Bugerere, Kayunga Township:

 

At Ssezibwa Bridge, the gateway to Kayunga District, cheerful residents have erected an arch in honour of Kabaka Ronal Mwenda Mutebi’s historic visit to Bugerere County.

As the Kabaka visits Kayunga today, the revelry at the gateway is a complete opposite of the ugly scenes of September 2009 when the military combat vehicles and mean-looking security personnel blocked the monarch’s visit to Kayunga, where he had planned to preside over a youth fete.

The government decision to block the Buganda King from visiting his subjects in a contested county triggered spontaneous protests in the various counties across the kingdom. The protests later degenerated into ferocious riots as police and the army confronted the protestors. About 20 people died in the conflict.

The Kabaka is expected to grace the finals of the Buganda clan football and netball championship organised by Bugerere County at Ntenjeru District headquarters tomorrow.

“This is a historic visit because some people have been claiming that this county does not belong to Buganda,” said Mr James Ssempigga, one of the residents of Kayunga, adding: “The visit confirms that Bugerere County is part of Buganda and under the Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Mutebi II.”

This will be the Kabaka’s second official visit to Kayunga since 2009 Buganda riots. In January 2014, the Kabaka visited the district, where he spent three days preaching reconciliation, unity and development. Contrary to government fears of the likely clashes between the Kabaka subjects and the minority Banyala cultural group that claims Kayunga, there was no bloodshed and Kabaka’s subjects swamped Kayunga Road and other areas to welcome him.

The visit

Fears. Earlier, after the announcement of the Kabaka’s visit to Kayunga, there were fears among some residents in Kayunga that the visit would be blocked like it was the case in 2009. However, the Banyala premier, Mr Martin Ssenkatuuka, said they had no problem with the Kabaka’s visit to Kayunga.

Police beefed up security in the district ahead of Kabaka’s visit ostensibly to avert any possible clashes between the Kabaka’s loyalists and the Ssabanyala’s supporters.

On Monday, Mengo blocked the Buganda youth from storming Kayunga to reclaim Bbaale Sub-county headquarters, which was allegedly grabbed by the Banyala from the Kabaka. Buganda Kingdom leaders have since called for calm and asked the government to ensure that peace prevails.

Kabaka receives heroic welcome in Kayunga as he enters town on foot

MONDAY NOVEMBER 28 2016

 

 

Kabaka Ronald

Mutebi together with His entourage in Bugerere County, Buganda Kingdom

KAYUNGA.

The Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II on Sunday concluded his two-day visit to Bugerere County, Kayunga District, during which he stunned his subjects, when he decided to walk a distance of about a kilometer while waving to his ecstatic subjects who thronged the Kayunga- Mukono road to welcome him.

The Kabaka, who arrived at Ssezibwa bridge at about 6.00 Pm, disembarked from his vehicle and after being greeted by the Katikkiro Peter Mayiga, decided to walk as he entered Kayunga District drawing ululations from his subjects.

Ssezibwa is where the then Katikkiro of Buganda JB Walusimbi was in 2009 blocked from entering Kayunga District.

The beaming Kabaka after walking across Ssezibwa Bridge entered his car but upon reaching Kayunga Town, he disembarked from his vehicle and walked along the main street covering a distance of about half a kilometer.

He walked through the crowds that had lined at the roadsides as he waved to his subjects, some of whom, prostrated before him amid tight security.

After walking through the Town, the Kabaka was driven to his palace at Ntenjeru, where he spent the night.

“Land lord you are welcome to your Bugerere County,” an elderly man, wearing a bark-cloth shouted as the Kabaka waved towards him.

This was the Kabaka’s second official visit to Kayunga District since 2009.

On Sunday morning, the Kabaka separately met members of the Bugerere County Lukiiko executive, sub-county and parish chiefs at his palace.

During the brief meetings, the Buganda elders led by John Lubega, complained about the memorandum of understanding (MoU) that signed between Mengo and the central government in 2013, saying it has many loopholes, which they said have resulted into the Banyala taking over some of the Kingdom properties in the county.

“Efforts should be made to have the MoU amended so that our property is not grabbed by some people here,” Mr Lubega told the Kabaka.

In his speech, the Kabaka said: “We shall not fight with anyone in this area who doesn’t respect our culture and norms but we shall only work with those who respect our culture.”

Under the MoU, the properties that include land and former administrative units of Buganda were given to the Banyala, an ethnic community in the area which claims that Bugerere is not under the Kabaka. The Banyala in October stormed Bbaale sub-county headquarters, where they constructed the Ssabanyala’s palace. Mengo asked them to vacate the area in vain.

The Kabaka, later graced the finals of the Bika football and netball championship. The football championship was won by Nte clan which beat Balangira clan on spot kicks.

 

BABANO ABABBI BULIJJO BETUKUGAMBA BEEYELUDDE:

 

Ssabasajja, omuwandiisiwo ow'ekyaama Mpanga Peter yoomu ku gabbi ag'ekukumye mu Bulange era kaakano akolaganye nebanne omuli n'omutemu Nabbosa Joyce Ssebugwaawo n'omutunzi (buloka) w'ettaka Tebattagwaabwe Getu.

Eby'obuwangwa bw'olulyo olulangira bitegeerebwa balangira na bambejja era ebizibu byaabwe basobola bulungi okubimala nga tobayambyeeko.

Kyewuunyisa okuba nti Mpanga tosobola kugonjoola bizibu biri mumakaago kyokka n'onaayiza olulyo olulamba? Tukusaba weemalire kubikukwaatako olekere awo okunaayiza.

Oyagala abulire mululyo olulangira ofunireko w'obbira ebintu by'abalangira okufaananako nga Bbaale Mugera bba w'omumbejja Sarah Kagere bw'akola. Kaakano omwaana Ttendo tamanyi kitaawe… mwanyina saava Richard kati gwaayita kitaawe.

Kumyaaka gyooliko gwe olaba ekyo ky'amagezi? Bw'obeera nga toyagala kubeera na mwaanawo oyo naava Ttendo, mutwaale mukikaakyo eky'eFfumbe omuwe banyoko oba bagandabo oba mutwaale mu bajjajjaabe… naye togenda ku kisobola okumuwagika mululyo olulangira. Ate toddayo okuwandiika amabaluwa ku nsonga ezikwaatagana n'olulyo olulangira… siggwe otulagirira eky'okukola. Ebyo genda ebitegeeze banno mukikaakyo. Ffe tuveeko totweewanikako ate singa okiddamu ogenda kutulaba akatufaamu.

Kaakano meeya we Uganda Nabbosa Joyce Ssebugwaawo, kirabika asussizza obuyinza era tamanyi w'akoma kuwa biragiro. Olaba yali ayagala kusimba lusuku mu lubiri? Abaffe mu lulyo olulangira olinayo kifooki, gwe Nabbosa? Nyabo bw'obeera nga teweemanyi kaakano ofunye omukisa okutegeera ekituufu. Okuva leero tukusaba otandike okumanya wookoma mu byoolina okukola. Tubadde tulowooza nti kumyaaka gy'olina ne byonna byozze okola mu Bwakabaka bwa Buganda wandibadde osaasira aBaganda n'obavaako.

Olukwe lwe muluse nebabbi banno okutunda embuga y'eBwanga nga muyingirira omumbejja akuumawo Nnaalinnya Nandawula, lufaananako nekyewakola mu 1969. Olaga nyo nti ofaayo ku by'obuwangwa mbu era obigoberera nnyo, kyokka wasobola okukkiriza Obote okukugulirira… ggwe Nabbosa Joyce ne weesitula ne mutemu munno Tattu Ssekannyo nemulumba Ssekabaka Muteesa II e Bungereza ne mu mutemulirayo!!

Ekyo tewali muganda atakimanyi ate tosobola na kuky'etondera. Okwo kw'osinziira nate oyite mulukwe okusaanyaawo ebyaffe nga w'efudde mbu Mpanga akuloopedde, kitalo! Mpanga yaani…? akola ngaani mululyo olulangira? Nyabo tusaasire, kyewakola ku Ssekabaka Muteesa II kitumala. Tuleke tweekubagize totwongerako!!! Tukulabula nti koma kukino kyookoze kubanga tetugenda kuddamu kuguminkiliza nkolazo oba okukuleka okukola ebisingawo. Ffe tuli balangira na bambejja tetukulinaako kakwaate. Singa onootweesibako, tujja kukola kyonna ekisoboka okukwettakkuluzaako. Bw'obeera nga oyagala kumanya ebisingawo ku by'afaayoobyo, yongera okutuwalampa.

Yye abaffe ani yakugamba nti Tebattagwaabwe Getu Nnaalinnya? Olowooza obwa Nnaalinnya babunoonya mu kakuyege wakunoonya bululu, oba babusaaba nga bizigo nti buli abyeesiize afuuka Nnaalinnya? Kaakano katukusomese olulala oyogerenga ku by'otegeera… obwa Nnaalinnya bwa nsikirano. Tebattagwaabwe Getu ani gweyabikka akabugo? Tebattagwaabwe yasikira ani? Ani yamusumika? Alina kifundikwa kyaani? Muyiiye birala, ekyo tekijja kusoboka tukirabye. Simanyi oba otegeera obukwakkulizo obubeera ku muntu akkirizibwa okubeera mukifo ng'ekyo.

Ssabasajja, ettaka okutudde olubiri luno lyonna Buganda Landa Board yalisalamu ebitundu n'ebitunda. Ekitundu ekikyaaliwo Nabbosa ne Mpanga kyebalwaanira, omumbejja Nandawula y'akikuumye n'abalemesa okukitunda. Emabegako yalemesa Kagere Sarah, Nabbosa Joyce Ssebugwawo, Emmanuel Ambassada Ssendawula ne Ssemwogerere Joseph okusendawo enju ya Ssekabaka Mwanga eyo eliwo enkadde. Abantu abo sibebatulagira kyetukola mu lulyo. Ate waliwo betuzudde nga beeyita abalangira n'abambejja nebateeka ebinkumu kubiwandiiko nebatunda ettaka n'ebintu by'olulyo olulangira… era bayita mungeri yeemu nga bano gyebayiseemu.

Mayiga the Kattikiro of Buganda, let us all do Ettofaali for a cancer hospital in the State of Buganda for once!

 

By Mike Ssegawa

Posted  Wednesday, April 15  2015

 

 

One Charles Peter Mayiga is worth 100 ministers in a banana republic.

Mayiga, who took over from Walusimbi as Buganda kingdom prime minister, has done for his cultural institution only a few would dream of two years ago when he was appointed. From mobilising people who describe themselves as poor to donate money voluntarily towards projects such as Amasiro, to raising money for real estate like the Masengere building that was donated to the Kabaka as a birthday gift on Monday.

It is difficult to convince people to part with their money for a project they see no direct benefit. Those who have organized fundraising for weddings, funerals or religious activities know better.

However, Mayiga has managed to get people to appreciate his fundraising initiatives. One of the fruits of his fundraising drive is Masengere, a building in Bulange Mengo, that was rotting away for three decades, but has been completed at a tune of Shs5 billion. That was no mean feat.

Mayiga and his Ettofaali team have proved that Ugandans can be donors – poor or rich. Secondly, that dedicated and transparent leaders can get support from everyone especially when doing noble causes.

Mayiga puts across a strong message of accountability and empowerment. That is why he is trusted by thousands with their shillings.

For a long time, it was known that it is bazungu who donate $10 or $20 for poverty stricken Africans. When they stop their taps, all projects on the continent dry up. Mayiga proves that thinking wrong – actually, we can support our own noble projects.

Against demeaning remarks from critics calling him a beggar, Mayiga is like John Walker who keeps walking, ignoring naysayers. And this is why the Katikkiro should now embark on other projects that would address the cries of the helpless.

This country has pleaded with its government. Patients have died. Many are bedridden and in pain. However, no solution has come to save.

Uganda needs a specialised hospital for ailments that our national hospitals cannot undertake due to resource constraints. Of course our government has money, but, there is simply no will to make a revolutionary difference in the health sector.

To be a heart and cancer patient in Uganda, you have to pray for a miracle, be rich to afford medication abroad, or get yourself ready for death.

The funding to the heart and cancer institutes at Mulago hospital can’t do much despite our good doctors wanting to make a difference. I know – at least the doctors at the heart institute treated my daughter. It is the tools that frustrate them.

Again, it is not because we have no money. We do, because, we have some to steal, and some to donate to neighbours to build schools.

This is where Mayiga’s Ettofaali project comes in. Kabaka’s subjects can live better with a specialized hospital where Ugandans can get treatment in country. This is Ettofaali I am itching to give.

Thinking about Rosemary Nankabirwa, the former NTV news anchor who succumbed to the disease on Sunday, or Bbale Francis and Dan Kyazze, among others who die every day from cancer related diseases, I wish Kabaka’s subjects got their good health back from a Kabaka’s hospital.

As I pray for Kabaka’s good health and that he lives longer, I also pray another birthday gift for him of a specialized hospital, from Mayiga’s gifted hands, comes to pass.

Okwejjusamu ku misaala gya Bannaddiini mu nsi eye ddini e Buganda:
Kampala | Jun 25, 2015
 

Bya VIVIEN NAKITENDE

OBADDE olimanyi nti bannaddiini n’ababuulira enjiri mu Uganda be bamu ku basinga okusasulwa mu nsi eno! Era nga munnaddiini atasasulwa bulungi w’akolera bwe batamukyusa waakiri abivaamu n’asiika empuuta?

Okimanyi nti ennaku zino enjiri y’ebiragaano ebya munnaddiini okufiira mu bwavu baabivaako dda, kati bayigiriza kimu, ‘Mukama tayagala baavu!’

Mu Uganda, Abasumba naddala ab’abalokole be basinga okusasulwa ssente ennyingi. Era y’ensonga lwaki bapaasita nga Nabbi Samuel Kakande, Robert Kayanja, Joseph Sserwadda oba Imelda Namutebi oba Nabbi Manjeri bavuga emmotoka za bbeeyi, basula mu mayumba kw’okomya amaaso ate tebaggwa kuwummulako bweru wa ggwanga.

Lwaki? Kubanga ssente ze bakung’aanya mu makanisa gaabwe tewali abasaba nsaasaanya! Bw’akwata ez’akabbo n’assaako z’akung’aanya okuzimba ekkanisa, ez’ekimu eky’ekkumi, ez’okugula omukisa n’endala eziri awo ezitategeerekeka, oluzissa mu mmotoka tomubuuza gye yazitutte.

Era Abasumba b’abalokole olw’okuba be ‘bakamalabyonna’ kibanguyira okulanga ku leediyo ne ttivvi, kwe kugamba bo enjiri yafuuka bizinensi, bw’oba tolina ssente teweesumaalika mu maaso ge!

EKEREZIYA

Mu Eklezia, ensasula y’abaweereza etambulira ku busiimo, teriiyo musaala kubanga okukolera Klezia kibalibwa nti obeera weewaddeyo obulamu bwonna eri Katonda n'okumukolera.

Bw’oba muweereza mu Klezia, obeera kyabugagga kya Klezia, y’ensonga lwaki bafaaza tebawasa wadde okuzaala abaana era ne bwe bafa baziikibwa mu bifo bya Klezia.

“Akasiimo ka buli omu kisinziira ku kifo gy'akolera. Waliwo ebifo ebirimu abantu abangi, nga missa zisabwa emirundi mingi. Oyo atwala klezia eyo afuna nnyo.

Okugeza faaza akolera mu Kampala akasiimo ke kabeera kanene okusinga faaza w'e Butambala. Waliwo ebitundu ebivaamu ssente ennyingi, kale Bwanamukulu oyo naye ssente eziva mu kigo kye bwe ziba nnyingi naye afuna kingi,” omu ku batuula ku kakiiko akaddukanya ekigo ky’e Bweyogerere bwe yagambye.

Bwanamukulu e Kampala afuna akasiimo akali wakati wa 400,000/- ne 800,000/- buli mwezi. Guno gwe gwandibadde ng’omusaala,naye waliwo obusiimo obulala okuli entambula singa aba alina gy’agenze okusabira missa. Kano e Kampala kava ku 50,000/- okudda waggulu okusinziira ku gy’alaga.

Faaza bw’abatiza ne bw’agatta abagole nawo wabeerawo akasiimo akabeerawo ku ssente ezo ezisasulwa nga kano kava ku 100,000/- okudda waggulu okusinziira ku kifo.

Wabula mu byalo, ssente zino zibeera wansi ddala era osanga faaza agenze okusaba mmisa mu kitundu ng’afunye akasiimo ka mutwalo gumu gwokka!

Bafaaza abalala abayambako ku Bwanamukulu bafunira wakati wa 200,000/- ne 500,000/- omwezi mu Kampala. Okwo gattako obusiimo obulala, wabula yo mu byalo oluusi weesanga nga Bwanamukulu afuna akasiimo ka mitwalo 20 omwezi ate abali mu bifo ebyavu ennyo ng’enfuna ntono bafuna nga mitwalo 10!

Omukungu omulala okuva mu kigo ky’omu Ndeeba yagambye nti, singa ekigo kiba kikung’aanya ssente nnyingi, kitegeeza nti n'akasiimo ka Bwanamukulu ne bafaaza abayambi be nako omwezi kajja kuba kangi.

Kano kasalibwawo akakiiko akafuga ekigo ekyo (parish council) okusinziira ku nnyingiza y'ekigo era wano mu Kampala kigambibwa nti Klezia ya Christ the King (Yezu Kabaka) mu kibuga wakati y’esinga okusasulwa ennyingi kuba nayo ekung’aanya kingi.

Ono ye tafuna byonna naye alabirirwa era ye abeera kyabugagga kya Klezia. Y’emuliisa, okutambula, obujjanjabi, obukuumi wabula singa ayitibwa okusoma mmisa aweebwa ebbaasa enzito ssaako okuweebwa ebirabo ebitali bikake.

Ssaabasumba ye omusaala gwe guba munene ddala wadde tegumanyiddwa. Ssente ezikung'aanyizibwa okuva wansi mu klezia zonna zigenda ku ssaza ekkulu ery’ekitundu ekyo eva  enteekateeka ya Klezia y’ensonga lwaki akasiimo ka Ssaabasumba kaba kanene okusinga obw’abalala.

 Era ono abeera mmemba ku byobugagga bya Klezia byonna  okuli amalwaliro, amasomero ate eno afunayo ‘omusaala’ nga mmemba w’olukiiko olufuzi.

Wabula singa bafaaza oba Ababiikira babeerako emirimu gyabwe emisomerere ng’obusawo, obusomesa n'ebirala  ne bafuna emirimu mu buyigirize bwabwe ng'abasawo oba abasomesa  eyo yo bafunayo emisaala era ezo ssente ziba zaabwe.

 

Eno omusaala gw'abaweereza gusinziira ku kiti omuntu kw’abeera aweereza era ensonga nnyingi ezitunuulirwa. Eno bbo bafuna emisaala kubanga balina amaka ag'okulabirira n'abaana.

Omubuulizi e Kampala afuna wakati wa 600,000/- ne 700,000/- omwezi ate mu kyalo wakati wa 300,000/- ne 500,000/- omwezi era na zino kisinziira ku maanyi g'ekifo awali obuweereza era gwe musaala gw'ofuna.

Mpozzi waliwo amakanisa agalina pulojekiti ez'enjawulo omuli okulunda ebisolo, okulima, ebifo awakuumirwa n'okwoleza mmotoka n'ebirala. Bino bwe bivaamu ssente byongera ku nnyingiza y'ababuulizi b'ekkanisa eyo.

Okugeza ekkanisa y’e Bulange mu bwassaabadinkoni bw’e Mengo erina amayumba g’abapangisa, kale omwawule n’abaweereza mu kkanisa eno bafunayo ku ssente mu pulojekiti ng’eno okwongereza ku musaala.

Ssaabadinkoni n'omwawule abo bali wakati wa kakadde kamu n'emitwalo 20 n'obukadde obubiri  ate mu kyalo bali wakati  wa 700,000/- ne 800,000/- wabula enjawulo nti Abakulistaayo ku nsonga z'okutoola okuwaayo eri ekkanisa bakyali banafumu bw’ogeraageranya n'Abakatoliki. Wabula nabo singa omubuulizi, Ssaabadinkoni oba omwawule abaako gy’agenze okusumba nayo afunayo amafuta agamutambuza oba akasiimo okusinziira ku b’agenze okusumba.

 Ssaabalabirizi, omusaala gwe gukubisaamu emirundi ebiri ogwa Ssaabadinkoni, ate abalabirizi abaawummula bbo ensasula yaabwe temanyiddwa bulungi era abakulisitaayo abamu baleetawo ekiteeso nti nabo bafunengayo emisaala basobole okubeezaawo obulamu bwabwe nga bweyagaza.

Ng'oggyeko emisaala, Ekkanisa eyambako abakulembeze baayo mu  kuweerera abaana n'okubawa obujjanjabi n'amayumba aw'okusula ne famire zaabwe.

Omulabirizi w'ekkanisa ya Uganda  eyammula  Livingstone Mpalanyi Nkoyooyo agamba, “Abalabirizi abaawummula tufunayo 300,000/- buli mwezi naye era tezimala kubeezaawo bulamu.

 Ky'ova olaba Ekkanisa egamba nti omulabirizi awummulire ku myaka 65 ng'akyalinamu ku maanyi agasobola okubaako ebintu by'akola okufunamu ku ssente era kati abalabirizi bangi abawummula baweebwa entandikwa omuli ente okutandikirako okulunda,” bwe yagambye.

Ensonda zang’ambye nti mu Kampala, abaweereza b’ekkanisa bafuna ssente mpitirivu. Okugeza, mu bulabirizi bw’e Namirembe, omwawule asemba afuna 1,700,000/-!

Mu bulabirizi bw’e Kampala, ssente ze bakung’aanya zonna batoolako ebitundu 15 ku buli 100 ne ziweerezebwa ku bulabirizi, ezisigaddewo zonna zisigala awo abaweereza ne bazigabanyaamu ebyetaagisa okuli n’obusiimo bwabwe! Kati ggwe lowooza ku Busabadinkoni nga obw’e Bukoto ,obuuze nti ssente mmeka ze bakung’aanya buli lusaba!

Ekkanisa y’esasula amasannyalaze, amazzi ate gye gatali abaweereza babawa ssente ezenkanankana z’ebidomola by’amafuta bibiri okukola ng’enku!

Omu ku baawule abaawummula eyagaanyi okumwatuukiriza yagambye nti, “Abaweereza b’Ekkanisa oluusi tugamba nti tetufuna ssente zimala, naye oli agenda okuwummula ayinza okusiibulira omwaka mulamba naye nga buli gy’agenda akung’aanya ssente ezinaamugulira ebintu by’anaawummulirako.

 

Abo abayagga ndowooza nti be banafu, kuba amakanisa mangi naddala mu byalo galina ettaka erisoba mu yiika ssatu nga singa omuweereza oyo alikozesa n’ateekako pulojekiti ez’enkulaakukana, agenda okuvaawo ng’agaggawadde!”

Kyokka amakanisa agamu gagunjizzaawo enkola y’okutegekera abaweereza baabwe. Okugeza mu busabadinkoni bw’e Gayaaza, babadde bakolagana ne kkampuni ya yinsuwa eya ISEA baterekenga 100,000/- buli mwezi zibayambeko gye bujja. Omusumba eno asasulwa 480,000/- omwezi.

Ate waliyo emizikiti gy'obwannannyini, gino nagyo bannyini gyo basasula ba Imam baabwe ssente z'omusaala okuva ku 400,000/- omwezi okusinziira ku nnannyini gwo. Okugeza Imaam w'omuzikiti gwa Mukwano omusaala gwe gwegasa.

Ng'oggyeko okubeera nti abasiraamu babeera bakola mirimu gya Allah naye nabo basolooza ssente mu Basiraamu era buli ssente ezisoloozebwa mu muzikiti ne zigenda mu kakiiko k'Abasiraamu aka waggulu,  Imaam w'omuzikiti ogwo afunako ebitundu bibiri n'ekitundu (2.5) ku buli 100 ku ssente z’abeera akung’aagyizza mu mwezi ogwo.

Kale singa akung’aanya obukadde nga 200 omwezi kitegeeza naye aba afuna akawera.

Era nabo enfuna y'Abasiraamu mu bibuga ne mu byalo eyawukana kubanga mu bibuga bakung'aanya ssente ezeegasa okusinga mu byalo nayo obukulembeze gyebukoma okweyongera waggulu n'enfuna nayo ng'erinnya.
