Buganda Land Board’s Chief Executive Officer Kiwalabye Male

The Buganda Land Board wrote to the Uganda National Roads Authority (Unra) commission of inquiry raising concerns on land compensation.

The board noted that the Kabaka has never been compensated since the inception of Unra and that they demand nearly Shs 10 billion for Unra’s failure to pay the Kabaka. This prompted the commission to ask the Buganda Land Board chief executive officer, David Kyewalabye Male, to re-appear at the inquiry.

The inquiry, chaired by Justice Catherine Bamugemereire, has commissioners Patrick Rusongoza, Abraham Nkata, Ben Okello Luwum and Richard Mongati, with Andrew Kasirye as lead counsel. ZAHRA ABIGABA brings you excerpts from the proceedings:


Kasirye: What is your name?

Kyewalabye: I am David Kyewalabye Male.

Kasirye: How old are you?

Kyewalabye: I am 46 years old.

Kasirye: What do you do for a living?

Kyewalabye: I work as the chief executive officer of the Buganda Land Board.

Kasirye: When did you join the Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: Since February 2007.

Kasirye: What is the Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: The Buganda Land Board is a company mandated with the management of all the land vested in his royal highness the Kabaka of Buganda. This mandate includes the collection of all rental and related income accruing from the use of the Kabaka’s land, including compensation by the state and related organs or bodies.

Kasirye: What are the complaints you are bringing on behalf of the Kabaka and the Buganda Land Board against the Uganda National Roads Authority?

Kyewalabye: Our complaint as the Buganda Land Board on behalf of the Kabaka is with regard to the failure and the refusal by Unra to provide the Kabaka with compensation for the use and acquisition of large tracts of land in spite of various demands and reminders to pay. My lord, what puzzles us is that leasehold tenants and bibanja tenants continue to be compensated while the Kabaka is completely ignored.

Kasirye: Do you know the roads /areas affected and Unra never compensated?

Kyewalabye: The areas include Kibuye-Entebbe phase 2 which was completed in 1998 but up-to-date we have not seen any attempts at payment for Kibuye-Zzana (a 5km stretch), Kampala Northern bypass, Masanafu-Bukalagi-Namungona-Kasubi; all these have not been compensated yet works are going on. Then we have got the Entebbe expressway, which also includes the Munyonyo spur, Kigo, Lunya, Buggu-Kibiri-Kirindi and Mutungo, Mpigi-Maddu, Sembabule road, Lukalu B, Kiriti Sabwe hill, Kabasanda, Mirembe and Ngomanene villages. Mukono-Kyetume [the famous Katosi road], Kisoga-Nyenga road and the affected areas include Kiyola, Katosi central and Kiwologoma villages.

Kasirye: Are there any other complaints you have to table before the commission?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. There are titles given to third parties on the Kabaka’s land without going through the normal process and the areas affected are Munyonyo block 255 and plot 98. The Uganda land commission issued these titles [but] they were fraudulently acquired.

Kasirye: What does that particular road have to do with Unra?

Kyewalabye: The claimants at Munyonyo road have already contacted Unra with their fake titles and compensation is done. Again, the same block 93 where the Catholic shrine is, Mr Obey got the titles on the same piece of land and claims have been passed on to Unra and Unra seems to have recognised it and we are asking for the titles to be recalled and cancelled.

We, therefore, request the commission to go on with the investigations and verify all titles issued on this land before any payments are being made. Otherwise, we will suffer irrecoverable damages if these dubious payments are made at our own expense. And our humble prayer to the commission is that, ‘make all necessary recommendations to enable the payments of all dues that are by law ours.’

Kasirye: Is there any other thing you would like to add?

Kyewalabye: The issue with Kampala northern bypass, Unra took titles and has not returned them. Unfortunately, the Kabaka’s land titles comprise huge chunks of land, like 300-600 acres of land. Unra takes land titles and takes ages without returning them and this affects other tenants on the Kabaka’s land.

Kasirye: Do you know how much Unra is supposed to pay Buganda Land Board?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. It is close to Shs 10 billion.

Kasirye: And do you know the acreage of land to be compensated?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. It is close to 70 acres of land. And if Unra fails to pay the Buganda Land Board in the given time we have given them, then the matter will be taken to court.

Mongati: Mr Kyewalabye, I just want clarification. The normal procedure is that when they are paying kibanja owners, the mailo owner or superior owner must approve. Has this been done?

Kyewalabye: In some cases, my lord, but not all.

Mongati: So, are you saying that bibanja owners have been paid sometimes without the consent of the owner?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord.

Mongati: Do you know these cases?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. We have evidence, for instance on the Mpigi-Maddu road, but I think they are quite a number of them.

Nkata: Is the Kabaka’s land, wherever it is available, well demarcated? Are there maps and plans one can see?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord. We have titles and in some areas the boundaries have been opened, but various consultants have been involved in these processes. They know how best you can arrive at this.

Nkata: For the interest of the general public, do people know where the Kabaka’s land starts and stops, especially in the central region?

Kyewalabye: Yes, my lord, they do.

Nkata: Soon Salama road is going to be worked on and I am aware that there are multiple land tenures on that road and the issue that has always been contagious is people claiming that they are on Kabaka’s land. Then there are also princesses and royals on that land that claim that it is their land and also landowners. Has this matter been clarified because, as the Munyonyo road will be worked on, this matter is likely to delay the public good because of that unclear demarcation of land? Can you assure the public that this matter has been sorted?

Kyewalabye: Thank you, my lord. As you are aware, the Kabaka is a land title holder, not kibanjas holder; so, once it is titled land, it is very clear with demarcations and we work with land surveyors. And even the various royals who hold land, they are also indicated on the titles and the 1993 Act that invested the land to Kabaka indicates the royals; either it’s the Namasole, Katikkiro, Omulamuzi. But once we have the titles, that is no problem.

We have always requested Unra to work with Buganda Land Board when it comes to Kabaka’s land. The Kabaka is a very big landlord, not somebody who just holds two or three acres of land. We are very committed to this because we are interested parties to the development of this country and, in any case, when these roads are done, the Kabaka benefits more because it uplifts the value of the land.

Bamugemereire: Thank you very much and we appreciate that you have found the commission useful in assisting you to investigate this matter further. We will do our best and I hope that you find the answers.

Kattikiro wa Buganda akyaye okwanirizibwa nga Kabaka wa Buganda---Owebweru?
 
On January 28, 2015, in a move that may surprise both his admirers and detractors, the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga announced that Buganda chiefs and other hosts must stop welcoming him to their areas in a manner which should be reserved for the Kabaka. The televised announcement came after more than a year of complaints by Baganda of different walks of life that the Katikkiro was trying to replace centuries-old Baganda cultural institutions and traditions by expanding his powers and responsibilities beyond what the Baganda constitution (Ennono) allows.
 
 

Addressing Ssaza (county) and Ggombolola (sub-county) chiefs, at Bulange Mengo, the Katikkiro told them that going forward, they must stop welcoming him in a style that befits the Kabaka. People must stop erecting archways (ebiyitirirwa) for him, prostrating before him and doing other things that should be reserved for welcoming the Kabaka. Speaking in Luganda, Mayiga said, “In the past I have been to many events where I am inappropriately welcomed, although I cannot blame you because of the high excitement you may have. However, you must reserve those types of welcomes for the Kabaka.”

Since he got his job, Mayiga has endured frequent criticism from members of the Buganda royal clan (Abalangira), Baganda youth organizations (Nkoba za Mbogo, BANGAWA and Ffe Buganda Nze Buganda), Baganda groups in Diaspora and many ordinary Baganda who accused him of, among other things, attempting to destroy Buganda’s cultural foundation. The fact that Katikkiro Mayiga has been a key player in several widely unpopular Buganda deals with President Museveni (Regional Tier and MOU) and, recently, the Aga Khan plan to commercialize the Kabaka’s Palace, has widened the divide between the Katikkiro and traditional Baganda of all shades.

One of the most visible and contraversial practices by Katikkiro Mayiga is his use of a large motorcade, with a heavy detail of AK-47 totting Uganda Special Forces soldiers which project military power on his tours around Buganda. And the fact that the tour organizers often erect archways (ebiyitirirwa) and hire boda-bodas (motorcycle taxis) to enhance crowds and excitement.  Many traditional Baganda allege that this is clear evidence that Mr. Mayiga is trying to overshadow the Kabaka and isolate him from his people. Mr. Mayiga’s announcement on Wednesday seems to have been directed at addressing this issue.

Notably, one group of people that has consistently stood behind Mr. Mayiga and his programs are certain Kampala traders, money lenders, sports betting operators and local real-estate investors. And for the most part, Mr. Mayiga’s wealthy supporters have helped him raise billions of shillings under his Ettofaali campaign. Even most of his detractors privately admit that Mayiga has done an impressive job in inspiring Baganda to wake up and believe that they do not want to be victims forever. Lately, however, there are signs that both Baganda and other Ugandans are starting to develop Ettofaali fatigue and the awakened Baganda seem to be expecting Katikkiro Mayiga to start delivering from the billions of Shillings that he has collected.

The audio recording below is one example of the many speeches that have been made in protest of  Mr. Mayiga’s policies. Ow’ek. Ssewava Sserubiri, former minister in Buganda Government, made that speech in mid-2014, at a party organized by Nkoba za Mbogo student’s organization.

Traditional, religious and political leaders in Uganda, Kenya and York in Britain have paid homage to the late Bishop of the Equatorial Africa James Hannington at the Hannington Shrine in Budimo village, Busia District.

Religious leaders led by Archbishop of York John Sentamu, Bishop of Bukedi Diocese Simon Bogere Egesa and Bishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Tororo Emmanuel Obbo among others, attended the function on Wednesday.

For the first time in more than a century, the great grandsons of the chiefs of the two kingdoms where Bishop Hannington was loved and where he was killed, met.

Chief Luba Munulo Juma, the great grandson of chief Luba in whose dominion (Busoga) and on whose orders Hannington was killed, met with chief Peter Mumia II, the great grandson to Paramount chief of the Wanga Kingdom Nabongo Mumia, who had given Hannington porters and guides to Kabaka Mwanga’s palace.

The paramount chief later allowed Bishop Hannington’s remains to be buried in his territory at the cost of his people.

During his visit to the shrine, Archbishop Sentamu commissioned the construction of the administration block of Bishop of York Bible College, Canterbury Square, Hannington Tabernacle Chapel and the York Gardens in Budimo.

Sentamu’s visit was crowned by the ecumenical service conducted by bishops Bogere Egesa and Obbo.

The head of the organising committee, Justice James Ogoola, said Archbishop Sentamu’s visit was not only a religious symbol, but a reconciliation ceremony between the people of Luba in Uganda and their counterparts from Mumias in western Kenya.

“I wanted to reconcile the descendants of the two dramatists in Hannington’s last days. One gave him escorts and guides, the other killed him. The two families met for the first time and I made sure I gave each of them a Lusamia Bible and asked them to shake hands as a sign of reconciliation,” Justice Ogoola, also the chairperson of the Uganda Judicial Commission, said.

The place was first dedicated by then Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey in 1998, as a Hannington shrine.

Chief Luba Munulo Juma in his remarks said: “I don’t feel guilty for what my great grandfather did, the bishop died because of his stubbornness before the cultural leader.”

Chief Peter Mumia II said Bishop Hannington was a Christian not an explorer, killed by those who did not understand him.

More developments

According to Justice Ogoola, plans are also underway to make the shrine a national pilgrimage for Christians to remember Bishop Hannington for his sacrifice for the new Christian faith that had just arrived in the middle of the continent of Africa during 1888.

Nantaba wants elderly scheme probed

Kayunga. Outgoing Lands state minister Ida Nantaba has asked the Inspector General of Government to investigate how the outgoing Kayunga District leadership selected beneficiaries of the Senior Citizens Grant given to elderly persons.

Ms Nantaba, who is also the district Woman MP, claims the 100 elderly persons per sub-county in the district were selected based on sectarian and political grounds.

“It hurts me as a leader to find that more than 900 beneficiaries of the senior citizens’ grant in this district all come from the same area and are from almost one tribe. I ask the IGG to take interest in this matter and probe how these beneficiaries were selected,” Ms Nantaba said on Tuesday.

Take oath

This was during the swearing-in of the district LC5 chairperson, Mr Tom Sserwanga, and his councillors at Ntenjeru District headquarters.

The grant, one of the core components of the Social Assistance Grant for Empowerment, started in 2010 with financing by government and development partners.

Kayunga is among the districts where the programme will be rolled out during this financial year.

However, the Elderly and Disabled Affairs State minister, Mr Sulaiman Madada, dismissed the claims by Ms Nantaba, saying beneficiaries had been selected on merit.

The former district LC5 chairman, Mr Steven Dagada said: “The selection of beneficiaries was based on age, but also on who is in more need for assistance.”

KAMPALA, UGANDA.

The Constitutional Court has ruled that police was wrong to prevent the Kabaka of Buganda from visiting his subjects in Kayunga district on September 12, 2009.

In a majority ruling of three to two, Justices Remmy Kasule, Egonda–Ntende and Rubby Opio Aweri concurred with the four petitioners, all Buganda kingdom subjects, that it is everyone’s right to move freely, reside or settle in any part of the country. The judges concluded that the Kabaka was exercising his constitutional right of free movement.

“The role of the Uganda Police was to regulate and put in place security measures to ensure that both Baganda and the Banyala who had threatened to demonstrate over the said visit are safe,” the judges noted.

The judges ordered government to pay costs of the case to the petitioners. There is no compesation whatsover for those who lost their lives and property. Mr Edward Lugonvu, Dr Adam Kimala, Mr Charles Ssenkungu and Ms Saida Najjuka. However, two of the judges - Eldard Mwangusya and Prof Lillian Tibatemwa, dissented and agreed with the government that blocking the Kabaka’s visit was to ensure peace because there was imminent chaos.

When Christianity came to Uganda, the missionaries combined it with education. Not only did they want to teach their converts religion, but also other matters.

When the Roman Catholic Church missionaries set foot in Buganda, one of their leaders, also known as the founder of the Catholic Church in Buganda/Uganda, Léon-Antoine-Augustin-Siméon Livinhac, took it upon himself to expose some of his converts to further foreign education.

In 1890, a group of 11 Baganda Roman Catholic youth converts were handpicked by Bishop Livinhac to go and study abroad. They had to trek from Uganda to the East African coast, weathering life on the sea to get to Europe on a journey that lasted nine months.

The 11 boys set off on the grilling journey to France, then Rome and finally to Algiers, where they were separated, with others going to Malta. 
The 11 boys are also believed to be the first Ugandans to go to Europe and the first to have met the head of the Catholic Church. To get to their final destination, they went through Paris, Rome and then Tunisia. 

While at Lyons in France, one of the boys, Leo Lwanga, describes the experience of having his photograph taken for the first time in Europe. His account was first published in Uganda by the Uganda Argus newspaper in its independence supplementary issue of October 9, 1962.

“You will be happy to hear how one makes those pictures of which you are fond, I shall tell you. There is a box which has three legs; it is dressed in a black cloth. The one who wants to make the picture says to us, you sit there in front of the box, you, and the others stand up and look this way.”

“Then he hides his head in the black cloth, in which the box is clothed, and then he brings a paper holding it, also hidden in under the cloth. May be he feared that those who were there will learn how to make the pictures.

Suddenly, he says to us “Do not move.” He opens the box on the other side, he closes it and he says it is finished. All our faces had entered the box, it takes a long time to make them come out, and we haven’t seen them.”

First destination
The group’s first European destination was Paris, where they arrived in September 1890, nine months after leaving Buganda. 
“We were allowed one month of rest in Paris. 
Some of us were sick, not being used to the food, and the weather. We were being looked at the way we looked at the whites when they first came to our land. After a month in Paris, we went to Rome, where we met Pope Leo XIII,” Lwanga narrates.

According to the 1908 entry in the Catholic information archives, it is stated that the 11 boys were destined to go to Carthage in Tunisia, where the Roman Catholic Church had opened an Institute in 1876. The institute was founded with the sole purpose of training young Africans. It was founded by Cardinal Lavigeria, the founder of the White Fathers’ mission.

According to the Uganda Argus independence supplement, when the group went to Rome to meet the Pontiff, he suggested to Bishop Livinhac, who was their guide and translator, that “some of the boys from Buganda be considered as possible candidates for religious life and possibly for priesthood.”

Final destinations
Of the 11 boys, seven followed the Pontiff’s suggestion to the letter by joining the White Fathers’ training base in North Africa. Among those who took to priesthood was Tobie Kizza, who happened to be the last surviving member of the group, dying in 1961 at Virika Cathedral in Kabarole District.

“Other boys went to Malta to train as medical doctors. But before they could finish their course, the institute was closed and they were transferred back to France, where they completed their training. Those who opted for priesthood stayed in Carthage and were trained at the White Fathers’ mission.

"Stop punishing pupils for speaking their vernacular languages" a Buganda State minister has advised teachers:

KAMPALA, BUGANDA STATE.

The Buganda Kingdom education minister, Hajj Abbas Kawase, has cautioned teachers against punishing students for speaking vernacular [Luganda] at schools.

“We would like to caution all teachers who punish students for speaking Luganda at schools to stop,” Hajj Kawase said. “We studied Luganda during our days at school, aren’t we better products compared to students produced nowadays?” he questioned.
Addressing the 26th Uganda Muslim Teacher’s Association (UMTA) convention last Saturday, Mr Kawase said Luganda as a subject taught in classes, should be like any other medium of interaction among students at school.
Government recently introduced a new thematic curriculum policy dictating that during the first three years of primary education, pupils must be taught using their mother tongue as the medium of instruction, with English taught as a separate subject, before switching to English as a medium of instruction in year four.
With more than 50 ethnic groups in Uganda, each with its own dialect, the policy was rooted in the idea that children pick up foreign languages more easily if first grounded in their mother tongue. Prior to the policy change, English was the official language of instruction in all school years.
Mr Kawase said punishing a student for speaking Luganda is illegal given that the Constitution of Uganda has never criminalised vernacular. 
“Such schools’ policies banning students from speaking a language they are taught in class, we won’t tolerate them,” he warned. “Besides, in actual sense these languages help students to comprehend subjects more than in foreign languages,” he argued.
Hajj Bruhane Mugerwa, the Kawempe Muslim Secondary School head teacher and the chairperson UMTA National Executive Council, urged schools to promote vocational studies as one way to promote hands-on-skills to help curb the high unemployment in the country.
The minister also advised teachers to promote quality effective and affordable education to avert “issues of a Primary Seven teacher failing a Primary Two exam.”
The convention brought together Muslim teachers from across the country.

Engeri yintaneeti gy’ekuzeemu n’okuyamba Okukulaakulanya Obuganda:

UGANDA, Kampala  Jul 02, 2015

Enkozesa ya yintaneeti mu Bizinensi mu Uganda n’ebibaawo nga takozeseddwa – Engeri yintaneeti gy’ekuzeemu n’okuyamba Okukulaakulanya Uganda


Bingi ebiraga nti enkulaakulana ya Uganda tekyasobola kudda mabega n’akatono bw’osinziira ku maanyi g’emisingi egy’enjawulo egyegatta awamu okuleetawo enkulaakulana y’eggwanga.

Eggwanga ery’abantu obukadde 37 ku kawumbi akalamba n’obukadde 150 obw’abantu abali mu Africa (okusinziira ku muwendo gw’abantu bwe guyimiridde mu mwaka 2015), enkulaakulana mu Uganda ereeteddwaawo emisingi egikwataganira awamu mu bitundu eby’enjawulo eby’eggwanga ng’ewagirwa Gavumenti eriko obutafaananako bwe gwali emabega embeera y’enkulaakulana bwe yali embi mu ggwanga.

Uganda yali emanyiddwa ng’emu ku zisinga obwavu mu Africa olw’ebyenkulaakulana ebyali bikwatiddwa obubi, kati egenda edda engulu era bamusigansimbi abawera okuva ebweru batandise okugyettanira. Emisingi egiwanirira eggwanga nga ebyobusuubuzi girina kye gikoze okuleetawo

Enkulaakulana ya Uganda nga muno mwe muli ensuubulagana eyaabulijjo n’eyo eyeesigamye ku tekinologiya/yintaneeti.

 

Okugula n’okutunda ebyamaguzi mu Uganda nga yintaneeti tennajja 

 

Ng’okusuubulira ku yintaneeti ku ‘bibanja’ nga Kaymu tekunnajja, omuguzi owaabulijjo mu Uganda yalina ebifo n’ebizimbe ebiwerako aw’okugula ebintu eby’ebika eby’enjawulo – ebyonooneka amangu n’ebitoonooneka.

Ebbanga si ddene bukya bantu batandika kufuna ku ssente ezeegasa okusobola okuba n’obusobozi obwetuusaako ebyetaago by’obulamu obwabulijjo naye emabega nga bagagga na balambuzi okuva ebweru be bagula mu supamaketi z’omu bibuga mu ggwanga okuli n’ekibuga ekikulu Kampala, ebintu omuli eby’okwejalabya n’ebyamaguzi ebyabulijjo gye bitundibwa gamba ng’ebyamasannyalaze, ebyokulya (ebirime), ebyokwambala n’ebirala.

Abalambuzi nga be bokka abettanira ebitundibwa ebyaffe wano gamba ng’emikeeka gy’omu Buganda, ebibbo n’obusawo obuluke, eby’okwewunda ebyekifirika ng’ebikomo, emikuufu n’ebiri ng’ebyo ebyalabibwanga nga biteereddwa ku makubo, ssaako okwettanira ebiruke n’amaduuka ku kisaawe ky’ennyonyi agatunda ebintu ebitawoozebwako musolo.

Olwo nno nga mu byalo n’obubuga obutonotono ebyamaguzi ebyonooneka amangu gye byatundibwanga awamu n’ebyetaago by’obulamu obwabulijjo gamba ng’ebyokwerongoosa n’ebizigo, ng’obutale bw’omu buulo nga be baana baliyo.

Awo ng’omuntu yeetegeka n’olukalala lwe olw’ebintu by’anaagula mu katale n’alinda olunaku lwe kanaabeerawo.

Wabula ng’okugula n’okutunda kimala obudde n’ebiseera wamu n’amaanyi kyokka nga tewali kya kukola anti nga y’engeri yokka mu biro ebyo omwalinga muyitibwa okugula n’okutunda nga tewali magezi malala.

 

Okujja kwa Yintaneeti


Mu bitundu bingi eby’olukalu lwa Africa omuli ne Uganda, yintaneeti y’oku ssimu eyongera okwettanirwa obutafaananako bwekiri ku yintaneeti y’oku kompyuta.

Okutwaliza awamu, yintaneeti egenze ewamba mpolampola era kibalirirwa nti abantu abasukka mu 8,500,000 be bagikozesa ekitegeeza nti bali ebitundu 23 ku kikumi eby’omuwendo gw’abantu mu ggwanga omwaka 2014 we gwatuukidde mu makkati.

Olw’obwangu mu nkozesa n’okuba nga buli w’oli otambula n’essimu, kyanguyirizzaako yintaneeti y’oku ssimu okwettanirwa mu Bannayuganda bangi abaagala okuwuliziganya ne mikwano gyabwe nga bayita ku mikutu nga Facebook ne Twitter.

Olw’omuwendo gw’abakozesa yintaneeti y’essimu mu Uganda ogweyongedde nga kivudde ku kwongera amaanyi mu kuyunga ebitundu eby’enjawulo ku mutimbagano, kyeraga lwatu nti okusaasaana kwa yintaneeti mu ggwanga kwa kweyongerera ddala n’amaanyi mu myaka egijja.

We twogerera, yintaneeti eya sipiidi eya waggulu (broadband) ku maanyi ga 3G ne 4G egenda ebuna buli wantu era abantu egenda ebakwata omubabiro naddala abo abasobola obulungi okwetuusaako ebyetaago by’obulamu obwabulijjo mu bibuga ebikula nga Kampala.

Okuyigiriza Bannayuganda ebyakompyuta naddala abaana b’amasomero kye kyandisinzeeko ssinga wabaawo amasannyalaze agamala ate n’ebizibu ebirala ne bikolwako gamba nga emiwendo okugulirwa yintaneeti egiri waggulu, bannabyabufuzi/abakulembeze obutafaayo kuzimba bikozesebwa ebya tekinologiya eby’amaanyi n’okisookera ddala eky’okutuusa kompyuta mu masomero eri abayizi okusomerako ebyakompyuta.

Mu Africa, sipiidi yintaneeti kw’esaasaanira okutuuka mu maka g’abantu ekyali wansi nnyo ng’amaka 11 gokka ku buli kikumi mu Africa ge galina yintaneeti mu nnyumba.

 

Obusuubuzi bw’oku yintaneeti


Ensuubulagana y’oku yintaneeti ezingiramu okugula n’okutunda ebyamaguzi n’empeereza okuyita ku mikutu gya yintaneeti y’oku ssimu ne ku kompyuta.

Mu ngeri ennyangu kwe kugula n’okutunda ng’omuntu ayitira ku yintaneeti. Mu myaka egiyise, ensuubulagala y’oku yintaneeti ebadde ezing’amizibwa lwakuba nti yintaneeti ebadde mbi era nga tennasaasaana bulungi mu Uganda bw’ogeraageranya n’amawanga ga Africa amalala.

Wandisuubidde nti omwaka 2015 we gwandituukidde, okusinziira ku kweyongera kwa yintaneeti mu ggwanga-okusingira ddala ey’oku ssimu, nga eby’ensuubulagana ku yintaneeti biri waggulu; naye ebyembi biri wansi kuba Uganda eri bubi mu kiti kino eky’enkulaakulana.

Ekitongole ky’Ebyempuliziganya mu Uganda (UCC) kikirambika ng’abali ku yintaneeti y’oku ssimu mu ggwanga (we lwatuukira nga June 2012) nga baali abantu akakadde kamu n’ekitundu ne balinnya okutuuka ku bantu obukadde buna (4) n’emitwalo 10 mu mwaka 2014 nga kino kirungiko era abakugu bateebereza nti omuwendo gugenda kweyongera mu myaka egijja.

Era mu mwaka gwe gumu ogwa 2012, abaali bakozesa yintaneeti y’oku kompyuta baali 92, 000 era omuwendo ne gulinnya okutuuka ku 106,900 mu 2014.

Bwe tufuba okwongera ku miwendo gino, yintaneeti mu byobusuubuzi egenda kweyongera okweyambisibwa mu katale n’okukula mu Africa.

Ebirina okukolwako mwe muli okulongoosa eby’ensasula n’entambuza y’ebitundibwa, emiwendo gya yintaneeti okukka, okufuula yintaneeti eyeesigika n’enteekateeka za Gavumenti ennungi.

Mu buufu bwe bumu, abantu (abagula n’abatunda) balina okusomesebwa emigaso egiri mu kugula n’okutundira ebintu ku yintaneeti, amagoba/emiganyulo egikirimu n’okubabuulira nti yintaneeti yeesigika era nnungi ekimala okukolerako bizinensi.

Okwongereza kw’ebyo, nga kati bwe waliwo abeenyigidde mu busuubuzi buno gamba nga; OLX, Dondolo, Remdak, Kaymu, Home Duuka, TakeAwayUG ne Jumia ssaako abalala bangi, era ng’ensimbi nnyingi zissiddwaamu, kyeragirawo nti ensuubulagana oba okugula n’okutundira ku yintaneeti kugenda kweyongera era kufuuke okw’omuzinzi.

Obusuubuzi bw’oku yintaneeti n’ensuubula eyaabulijjo (eteri ya yintaneeti): Kye bwongedde ku nkulaakulana ya Uganda

Wadde okuyambibwako okuva mu mawanga g’ebweru kukendedde, enkulaakulana ya Uganda ebadde nnungiko olw’emisingi gy’enkulaakulana egyeyongedde amaanyi.

Mu lipoota eyafulumizibwa ekitongole ky’ensi yonna ekiwozi kya ssente (IMF), enkulaakulana y’eggwanga ewa essuubi era erina okweyongera ng’omwaka gw’ebyensimbi 2015-2016 tegunnaggwaako n’ebitundu 5.8 ku buli kikumi eby’ebintu ebifulumizibwa n’ebikolebwa mu ggwanga bw’oba obibaliridde mu nsimbi.

Guno omuwendo munene ku gw’ebitundu 4.5 ku buli kikumi mu mwaka gw’ebyensimbi 2013-2014.

Egimu ku misingi egivuddako enkulaakulana eno ekweyongera by’ebyobusuubuzi omuli eby’oku yintaneeti n’ebitali bya ku yintaneeti.

Bizinensi z’oku yintaneeti zikolerwa ku kompyuta oba essimu obutafaananako ne bizinensi ezaabulijjo omutali kukozesa yintaneeti y’oku kompyuta oba essimu.

Obusuubuzi obwabulijjo buzingiramu okussaawo edduuka oba ekifo aw’okutundira, okukola ku bakasitoma maaso ku maaso, attending to shoppers face to face; okusasulirawo mu kaasi mu kifo ekyo n’obudde obwo bwennyini ekintu we kiba kiguliddwa, okusimba layini mu matundiro ne supamaketi, okussa amasa n’ebikozesebwa mu kifo awatundirwa, n’ebirala ebiteekeddwa okubaawo okusobozesa ensuubulagana okubaawo.

Wabula obutafaananako na nsuubula eyo waggulu, yo ey’oku yintaneeti teyeetaaga kusisinkana muntu maaso ku maaso okutuusa ng’ebitundibwa bimaze okuweerezebwa gye biraga. Wano nga bituusiddwa, okugula n’okutunda we kukomekkerezebwa ng’omuguzi asisinkanye atunda.

Amaanyi n’ebiseera ebyonoonebwa mu nsuubula eri eyaabulijjo (eteri ya yintaneeti) byewalibwa mu kusuubulira ku yintaneeti sso ng’ate mmwo era mulimu n’okutuuka ku katale akagazi munda mu ggwanga n’ebweru, obusuubuzi busobola okukolebwa obudde bwonna (essaawa 24 ku lunaku lwonna olwa wiiki), enkangaga z’ebitundibwa eziwerako, obwangu mu kunoonya ebitundibwa okuyita ku mutimbagano, n’okwewala eby’okusimba layini empanvu.

Wabula abantu bangi bagamba nti ensuubula eri eyaabulijjo eteri ya yintaneeti nnungi kuba yo okwatirako ddala n’okulaba ekintu ekigulibwa okusinga lw’okozesa yintaneeti n’osigala ng’oteebereza buteebereza omutindo oba mulungi oba mubi.

Kyokka wadde ekyo kiri bwekityo, okugula n’okutundira ku yintaneeti tekubuusibwabuusibwa nti kwe kusinga obwangu era okuyinzika mu mbeera ennyanguko.

Eri abatundira ku yintaneeti, batuuka ku baguzi butereevu; emiwendo egikikola giri wansi kuba tekyetaagisa kusooka kussaawo dduuka, n’ekirala ebizibu ebiri mu kutuuka w’otundira bibabigonjoddwa.

Obusuubuzi obw’ebiti byombi (obw’oku yintaneeti n’obutali bwa yintaneeti) bulina kye bwongedde ku nkulaakulana ya Uganda mu ngeri emu oba endala, era olw’okuba ng’ebyobusuubuzi bw’oku yintaneeti mu ggwanga bikyali wansi, abakugu mu byenkulaakulana n’ebyenfuna bateebereza nti bijja kugatta kinene ku nkulaakulana y’eggwanga mu myaka mitono mu maaso kuba gwe gumu ku mikutu egiyinza okuyitibwamu okutuuka ku nkulaakulana.

Mu ngeri eyo, okwesigama ku busuubuzi bw’ebyamaguzi mu nkola enkadde kukendeezebwa kinene nnyo ate enkulaakulana esigale ng’egenda mu maaso.

Kikulu nnyo okumanya nti okweyongera mu nsuubulagana y’oku yintaneeti, bizinensi nnyingi zijja kumerukawo gamba ng’okuva ‘ebibanja’ eby’okutundirako okugeza Eye Trade tebyetaaga ssente nnyingi okutandika. Ekirala, emirimu mingi gya kutondebwawo.

 

Ebiseera by’Obusuubuzi bw’oku yintaneeti eby’omu maaso mu Uganda

 

Bannannyini bizinensi mu ggwanga (wadde si bonna) balina okutunula mu ngeri gye bakolamu era olw’obutasigalira mabega, beeyunge ku nkozesa ya yintaneeti mu busuubuzi.

Mu ngeri y’emu, abategeka okutandikawo bizinensi nabo bakubirizibwa okwegatta kun kola y’emu baganyulwe mu birungi ebiri mu kukola bizinensi nga weeyambisa yintaneeti wakati mu kuyambako eggwanga okukulaakulana.

Ng’ebisoomooza byonna eri obusuubuzi bw’oku yintaneeti bimaze okukolwako ne bivaawo, okugeza ng’enneeyunga ku yintaneeti ekyali embi, obutamanya nkozesa ya kompyuta n’ebyuma bikalimagezi n’enkola za Gavumenti ezeekiika mu kkubo lya yintaneeti; awo bizinensi y’okugula n’okutundira ku yintaneeti ejja kuba eyogerwako ng’enneetegefu okutuusa eggwanga ku biruubirirwa by’enkulaakulana yeegombese n’amawanga ga Africa amalala.

Olw’okuba obusuubuzi bw’oku yintaneeti bugenda bukula era nga n’ensimbi ez’okubusigamu zikyeyongera okujja, waliwo essuubi lya maanyi nti wajja kubaawo okusenvula okuyise mu mitendera okw’ensuubulagana evudde ku kika ky’obusuubuzi obw’edda (obutali bwa yintaneeti) okudda ku bwa yintaneeti wadde ng’era si mu bujjuvu anti kiba kyetaagisa buli kika okukwanyizibwa obulungi ne kinnaakyo enteekateeka eno ereme kubaamu bituli.
