BUGANDA a Nation in need of prayer
God answers prayers. And he works in steps. A step at a time. Let us continue to pray and keep praying. Let us continue to ask and keep asking. Let us continue to seek and keep seeking. Let us continue to knock and keep knocking.
God hears our cry.
Consultations on Land Bill welcome
President Yoweri Museveni’s decision to allow extensive national consultations on the Land Amendment Bill 2008 is timely and welcome.
The Bill that has polarised the nation along tribal sentiments needs wide consultations so that the protagonists can generate consensus.
Mr Museveni, told journalists at State House, Nakasero on Tuesday that he had directed the Attorney General, Dr Khiddu Makubuya and the Prime Minister, Prof. Apolo Nsibambi, to work with the Speaker, Edward Ssekandi, to delay the Bill’s second reading and allow time for the stakeholders to agree on the contentious issues in the proposed amendments .
His new position on this proposed law brings hope to the nation and warms –up the hitherto strained relations between State House and Mengo establishment.
It’s important for us to appreciate the fact that government should urgently put in place a comprehensive land policy and strong land laws to stop illegal land evictions, but most importantly to utilise land, which is a major factor of production, in a sustainable manner.
Any legislation on land must be painstakingly enacted to avoid social strife because land is a touchy issue since it can breed negative political, social and economic ramifications if it’s not handled carefully.
The new approach which advocates negotiations and consensus building is well suited given that most major stakeholders including among others the bankers have expressed reservations on the Bill because of fear that borrowers may face difficulties to access loans using land titles that have multiple legal and equitable interests.
The bankers’ notion that it’s tricky to lend money to borrowers whose land is occupied by tenants who can not be evicted in case of default is reasonable.
On the other hand, government argues that the proposed amendments are intended to protect the land rights of bibanja holders. All these are valid points which should be addressed by the law makers to ensure that land doesn’t cease to be a tradable commodity due to conflicting and competing interests.
The country needs land reforms that are fair to all- landlords and tenants alike and, government should as a matter of priority operationalise the much touted land fund to provide money to tenants to purchase and secure their land rights.February 15, 2009 at 12:07 pm #22171KalibattanyaParticipant

Church calls for fasting.
Written by Pius Sawa
Thursday, 19 February 2009
Church leaders in Uganda have announced a 40 days fasting period to decampaign human and child sacrifice.
The fasting period begins next week on 25th February which happens to be Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lent season.
In a joint news conference organised at Namirembe by different church leaders, Church of Uganda’s Archbishop Henry Luke Orombi asks all Ugandans to dedicate the 40 days of fasting to prayer and meditation.
Adding to the Archbishop’s appeal, Pastor Michael Okwako who is the president of the Baptist Union says that Uganda is heading for disaster if innocent blood continues to be shed under such circumsancesFebruary 20, 2009 at 12:56 pm #22245MusajjalumbwaParticipant

Okuva mu 1966, abakulembeze be ddiini babaddenga bayita okusaaba nokusiiba ku lwa Uganda. Naye nga era ebikolobero tubivaamu kubiddamu. Mwebuuze nti kibaddenga kiva ku ki? Kyeekyo kyenyini Musajja kyagamba, nti oba buli ggwanga lilina endowooza zaalyo, nebizibu byaalyo, ne ntegeka zaalyo, olwo lwaki mulowooza nti bwetunayingira mu ssinzizo olwo netulyooka twegatta ebitulema okwegatta bulijjo? Nze kuno okusaba bano kwebogerako, singa ebitalo bibadde tebitubutikidde, kwandibadde kwa byakusesa busesa. Kulinga emboozi yabasajja abasatu Katonda beyayita bamusabe kyonna kyebagala, omu kyaava asaba obugagga, owokubiri nasaba amagezi, owokusatu nasaba Katonda aleke kuwa bali ababiri byebasabe.
Mukama agamba nti bwemunakungaananga abantu babiri oba basatu nga bassa kimu nebansaba, nange nnabawulira. Abaganda mulekerawo okwekukutiiriza ku bannamawanga. Katonda waffe, wa luganda waffe. Tujja kumwesabira ffekka, era ajja kutuwulira. Muve ku ba sserwajja okwoota!! Abaganda mukikoleko mangu ekyo kuva ku bantu ababi nga ne Katonda wammwe temunnamwetamya.
