    in reply to: HAPPY VIRGIN MARY’S ASSUMPTION 15 AUGUST #28102

    Today 15th August the church celebrates the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.
    A few things that you probably didn’t know about Mother Mary.

    1. Joachim was a very wealthy and pious man from Nazareth. He married Anna who was born in Bethlehem. Both were of the tribe of Judah, and descendants of King David. They remained childless into their old age, fifty years after they married. They made a vow to the lord that if He granted them offspring, they would dedicate it to the service of God.

    2. Mary’s date of birth is unknown but it is celebrated every 8th of September.

    3. Her mother found out that Mary was already walking at 6 months.

    4. When she turned three years old, she would be sent to the Temple to be educated. At the temple steps, a halo of light encircled the blessed child and filled her with joy, and she danced before walking in.

    5. The priest Zaccharia responsible for her at the temple was very impressed by Mary’s wisdom from a very young age.

    6. When Mary turned fourteen, an angel appeared to Zaccharia in a dream and said, “Tomorrow have each suitor bring with him a staff. The Holy Spirit will give a sign as to who shall be Mary’s husband.”

    7. The next day the suitors crowded into the Temple, each holding a staff in his hand. Kneeling, they prayed for a sign. All at once, a lily was seen to bloom from the staff held by the widower Joseph, a builder and carpenter. Then a snow-white dove alighted upon the staff before flying off.

    8. The angel Gabriel announced to her on the first stage of Jewish marriage that she was to be the mother of the promised Messiah by conceiving Him through the Holy Spirit.

    9. She was 14 years old when she was engaged to Joseph and 15 when she gave birth to Jesus.
    10. Mary is both identified in the New Testament and in the Quran as the mother of Jesus through divine intervention.

    11. Mary, the mother of Jesus, is mentioned as Maryam, more in the Quran than in the entire New Testament.

    12. Mary enjoys a singularly distinguished and honored position among women in Quran. A chapter in the Qur’an is titled “Maryam”, which is the only Sura or chapter in the Qur’an named after a woman.

    13. Mary Died at the age of 59 surrounded by the apostles. Three days later she rose and taken to heaven.

    14. The Christian doctrine of Perpetual Virginity holds that Mary remained a virgin all her life, even after the act of giving birth to Jesus.

    Happy feasting day to all Marys – Marias, and Marions
    Happy Mary’s Assumption to everyone.

    The greatest lure of tourists to Egypt are the famous pyramids. Built millenia ago, by Africans with neither mortar nor cement, they remain a symbol of ingenuity and a classic work of engineering. In Mali, there are similar works, including structures that housed universities, built using the same technique as the pyramids. Back home, Kisingiri House in the larger Bulange area is another marvel: built with ensambya, enkoma, reeds and mud, and it has stood for over a century.
    As Buganda rejoices over the ‘restoration’ of the Kasubi Tombs( amasiro), what exactly is Buganda about it? What indicates age-old architecture, ingenuity, creativity? The whole structure is another ‘modern’ day steel and concrete thing.

    Well, times change. Else, we would have expected the restored masiro to be made of ensambya, enkoma, emuli, well-thatched, ceiling lined with embugo, with periodic maintenance according to each clan’s role. You only need to visit Rwanda’s national museum in Huye, to appreciate their architecture. Within the bowls of the museum is a replica of a typical king’s palace, built the the Kinyarwanda way.

    ‘Emikolo egyakoleddwa ku Nakabiri gyasobye’
    Aug 06, 2012


    SSAABALANGIRA Ying. Moses Kayima Ssegamwenge agambye nti emikolo egyakoleddwa mu kubikka akabugo ku Bannalinnya Elizabeth Nakabiri ne Edith Nabweteme abaaterekeddwa mu masiro e Kasubi gyakuddibwamu kubanga abaagikoze si be batuufu.

    Yannyonnyodde nti Nnaalinnya Nakabiri yalaama Omumbejja ow’okumusikira mu musaayi atwale n’obwannaalinnya. Mu kiseera we yazaamidde nga taliiwo kwe kulonda omulala Nanjobe wabula ekiseera ky’okubikka akabugo we kyatuukidde n’alemesebwa okukola omukolo gw’okubikka akabugo.
    “Obukulembeze oba obwami buwooma kituufu. Nze nsaba abakwatibwako mu kika ne bampa Nnaalinnya ne mmulaga ekika, kye twakoze e Kasubi. Wabula kyanneewuunyisa ekiseera ky’okubikka akabugo bwe kyatuuse, ate Diana Teyeggala ye yakikoze, ekintu ekikyamu! Emikolo tulina okugiddamu,” Ssaabalangira bwe yannyonnyodde.

    Waabaddewo okusikaasikana mu kubikka akabugo ku Nnalinnya Elzabeth Nakabiri bwe baatudde mu Kigango ne balonda Omumbejja Nanjobe wabula nga bateekateeka okukola omukolo ate Omumbejja Diana Teyeggala n’awamba olubugo ng’alusika ku mulala eyabadde alukutte era ye yabisse kye bawakanya nti yakikoze mu bukyamu.
    Akavuyo ku mikolo gy’okuziika Nnaalinnya Edith Nabweteme Kiyumba kwatandise na kusika muguwa ku lutikko e Namirembe ng’okusaba kuwedde. Abamu baali bagamba nti bagende Kasubi bakole emikolo, abalala nga bagamba nti balina kugenda ku Lubiri lwa Ssekabaka Kamaanya e Kasengejje.

    Olwavudde e Namirembe baavuze bagenda Kasengejje ne bakola emikolo sso nga mukyala wa Dr. Lubega gwe bagamba nti Nnaalinnya Nabweteme gwe yali yalaamira okumusikira baamukuumidde Kasubi nga bamukakasizza nti emokolo gyonna we bagenda okugikolera.
    Olwakomyewo e Kasubi we baakamutemedde nti emikolo giwedde naye nga teboogera ani abisse kabugo. Ssaabalangira Kayima yagambye nti akimanyi eyabisse akabugo mumbejja naye abadde tamumanyi nnyo nga tatera kujja mu mikolo.

    Abamanyi ennono egobererwa baategeezezza nti omusika ng’abikka akabugo ku Nnaalinnya ayinza okuyambibwako jjajjaawe singa olubugo luba lugazi nnyo kyokka mu kubikka ku Nnaalinnya Nakabiri abaakwata olubugo baali basatu n’okusingawo. Ku nsonga eno, Nnaalinnya w’Amasiro g’e Kasubi Getrude Tebattagwabwe yategeezezzanti naye yabadde tategedde ani yabisse kabugo wabula n’atusaba tugumiikirize essaawa yonna bajja kumututegeeza.

    Mu kiseera kye kimu, Paasita Micheal Kyazze yagobye Omugiriinya ku ntaana ya Nnaalinnya Nakabiri ng’amugamba nti tayagala ateeke kasiya mu ntaana ya nnyina sso ng’Omugirinnya y’akola emikolo ku Balangira n’Abambejja ababeera bazaamye.

    in reply to: Israel arrests and deports black refugees #28015

    Long-time resident Moshe Nakash said that while some people may resent the fact that African migrants live in the neighborhood, there is no excuse to take the law into their own hands.

    “You don’t need to hurt them physically,” he said. “The law needs to take care of them. We know there are planes going back [to repatriate some migrants]. If they’re harassing people, then go to the police and police will take care of it.”

    This second attack really shook the African migrant community in Jerusalem.

    “I am really scared – this is not a small thing, to burn someone’s house down,” said Bereket, an Eritrean migrant who works at a computer store near the arson site, and did not want to give his full name.

    African migrants have reported being attacked in a number of neighborhoods in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Eilat. Assailants have used a number of weapons to assault migrants, including rocks, bottles, firecrackers and Molotov cocktails.
