What If Wakanda Was Actually Uganda?

By Simon Singiza

Wakanda forever!!To all those relieving themselves from the blank panther hype. As a huge fan of Chadwick Bozeman and the marvel series.I didn’t expect anything less of the movie. What actually took me by storm was the excitement it caused globally not to mention in Kampala streets with cinemas seats fully booked anywhere you turned .

The last time I saw such hype was the time our Lord Jesus Christ received some serious cains in the release of passion of Christ. If I you haven’t watched it run and buy that movie ticket, or you can choose to be patriotic (be Ugandan, buy Ugandan) and wait for the vj junior version to come out.

There so many aspects that made this movie thrilling starting from the cast of African actors, the authentic fight scenes as well as the concept of a technologically advanced Africa. But the real entertainment for me was the effort made by social media to affiliate the movie based kingdom wakanda to Uganda.

Its all starts when the movie points out that the location of the wakanda kingdom was somewhere around East Africa. Then the Mengo lords casting the first stone swore how that name is actually pronounced as Waganda and not Wakanda.

The basoga too were not going to let anyone steal the glory right and so they rushed to lay claim on one of the two Ugandan actors that were part of the Black Panther cast was of Busoga origin. One could hear them affirm how they even sent Daniel Kayunga the kanzu he wore on during the premier of the Black Panther.

What Ifound more interesting was the pictorial evidence the Bakiga revealed of the similarity of the wakanda geographical scenery to Lake Bunyonyi and the Ruwenzori Mountains as they too tried to own the movie. This got me thinking supposing there was some truth in these arguments, how can Uganda and its tourism benefit from this opportunity.

The music and film industry has played a big role in influencing today’s culture, way of life, and general public opinion about certain topics. This is why the business world will not mind paying millions of dollars just so their products can feature in popular movies.

You imagine how much Mercedes Benz had to pay just so batman could be seen driving a Mercedes in the justice league movie. Or how much American car companies have to pay for their vehicles to feature in movies like the transformers or the fast and furious.

I’m quite sure tourism in Madagascar sky rocketed immediately after the release of the famous cartoon animation Madagascar. Not to mention the benefit Kenya and Tanzania tourism has received courtesy from the classical animation the lion king which not only stressed the beauty of the Kilimanjaro Mountain and national parks but also Swahili language phrases like hakunamatata

If businesses and other countries are benefiting from Hollywood, what would be we are not the only African country that is suffering the effect of bad publicity. after all, one of the reasons the blank panther movie is a hit is because this is among the first few movies that has made an attempt to change people’s mindset about Africa and therefore we should grab this opportunity and use this movie to focus that attention further on Uganda’s tourism before some other country does.

SURVIVAL INSTICTS: Why Bagyenda Is Hanging On BoU Job, Fighting Mutebile

Justine Bagyenda’s long and glorious tenure as Executive Director in charge of Supervision at the Bank of Uganda (BOU) came to a surprising end when the Governor, Prof. Emmanuel Tumusiime-Mutebile, on February 2, 2018, fired her as he made changes he said would scale up efficiency of the financial industry regulator.

The new changes, which Mutebile said were ‘normal’ at BOU, would immediately bring in Dr. Tumubweine Twinemanzi, formerly working with the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) as Director Economic Affairs, to replace Ms. Bagyenda. Prof. Mutebile, according to analysts, is punishing long-serving Bagyenda for the mess she reportedly caused as BOU sold Crane Bank to DFCU Bank at just Shs200b.

It is alleged Bagyenda sanctioned the payment of Shs13 billion legal fees to MMAKS Advocates and AF Mpanga (Bowmans) to defend BOU against Sudhir Ruparelia for allegedly using Crane Bank money worth about Shs400 billion. Though Mr. Ruparelia has dismissed the allegation as untrue, the case is in Commercial Court and Bagyenda is expected to be a key witness.

But MMAKS and AF Mpanga law firms won’t represent BOU as court dismissed the advocates for ‘conflict of interest’, having worked for Crane Bank. This further brought the central bank on the spot as it made losses worth Shs5.4 billion in three months, having brought on Sebalu and Lule Advocates to replace the two law firms mentioned earlier. Indeed, BOU had to face the wrath of Parliament for the loss made.

Bagyenda, who was to retire in June this year, having worked at BOU for over 30 years, is contesting her dismissal and has not officially handed over the office to her successor, even as reports indicate the latter has assumed his duties. She accuses Prof. Mutebile of ignoring the law when he fired her.

She has since moved in another office at BoU. She says she is a public servant who is permanent and pensionable and cannot just be dismissed without clear reasons, the reason she rushed to the Inspector General of Government (IGG), Irene Mulyagonja, who now is at loggerheads with Mutebile over Bagyenda’s dismissal.

But insiders say this was an alleged cover up for the bad deals orchestrated by Bagyenda and the law firms that would later present an opportunity enabling DFCU Bank to hurriedly buy off Crane Bank, with the executors of the deal reportedly expecting to gain from the transaction.

Bagyenda’s genesis of financial troubles, analysts say, start here. She is now battling to save her image as several accountability oversight agencies like Parliament and Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA), close in on her.

IGG Vs Mutebile fight over Bagyenda

Bagyenda’s rush to the IGG has not helped her regain her juicy job that she used to amass wealth in billions of shillings and properties. Despite the IGG Irene Mulyagonja writing to Mutebile to rescind his decision, Mutebile says the Constitution gives him independence to streamline the human resource at the central bank when need arises.

Interestingly, the BoU Act gives Mutebile, who is a Governor and doubles as the chairperson of the BoU board, powers to enforce several issues at the bank without necessarily going through other channels.

Consequently, he has asked the IGG to back off. The public is watching as the Governor and IGG quibble over the interpretation of the law. Latest is that President Yoweri Museveni has this Monday summoned the two principals to a meeting at State House. This meeting could provide the decisive line in the multi-faceted saga that has drawn in the ‘who-is-who’ in the country.

Bagyenda’s billions

Leaked documents show that Bagyenda stashed billions of shillings totaling 20 billion in various bank accounts in just six years, on top of owning properties worth billions of shillings.

This has caused her more trouble, causing the IGG and now Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA) to launch investigations into her sources of income. Bagyenda formerly chaired the FIA board when she still held the supervisory role at the central bank.

The investigations

City lawyer Denis Nyombi recently wrote a letter asking Parliament to investigate Bagyenda’s wealth. “The purpose of this letter is to inform you that our client (whistleblower) is in possession of information about some of the properties of Bagyenda, which he says were not declared as required the Leadership Code Act 2002,” part of the letter wrote. The Act is meant to stop public officials from engaging in corruption.

Nandala Mafabi accuses Bagyenda, banks of money laundering

Budadiri West MP and former Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Nandala Mafabi, a distinguished accountant has called for the investigation and prosecution of Bagyenda over money laundering.

“We are going to carryout investigations and we are going to deal with those banks because they have been doing illegal things with Bagyenda,” Mafabi fumed during a recent press conference held at Parliament.

The MP was warning Barclays Bank and Diamond Trust Bank, among others which are not happy with their staff who leaked Bagyenda’s transactions to the public. Mafabi says that if convicted of corruption, Bagyenda could serve twenty years in jail for money laundering, according to Mafabi.

FIA orders closure of Bagyenda’s accounts

The Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA) has confirmed that an investigation into Bagyenda’s billions of shillings is ongoing. Bagyenda was a board member of the FIA before she was axed.

The Executive Director of FIA Sydney Asubo said days ago they were acting on a petition from a whistleblower who indicated that Bagyenda’s wealth is not commensurate with employment at her former job, suggesting she could have been involved in money laundering.

Asubo said FIA would share information with relevant law enforcement agencies to take action. “The information we have, we shall share it with other law enforcement agencies. We are still compiling information about the financial dealings of Bagyenda. We shall then have to verify it,” he said in Kampala.

Accounts frozen

Latest reports coming in Monday say FIA has instructed banks to close Bagyenda’s accounts after she failed to appear there for interrogation last week. If true, this means she won’t transact any business on those accounts.


Last month, a whistleblower petitioned the Inspector General of Government (IGG) claiming that Bagyenda had accumulated more than Shs 19 billion within a space of two years.

She is also linked to 17 properties in central and western Uganda worth several billions. Bagyenda was supposed to declare her wealth under the Leadership Code Act that stipulates that a person shall within three months after becoming a leader and thereafter every two years, during December submit to the IGG a written declaration of their income, assets and liabilities.”

The IGG has since opened investigations into the allegations. But one wonders how the IGG will save her job at BOU given her questionable acquisition of too much wealth.

URA taxes

Bagyenda is also on the URA radar for alleged tax evasion especially as regards her real estate empire (rentals) where she earns hundreds of millions monthly without reportedly remitting corresponding taxes to URA.

Bagyenda was also attached to Microfinance Support Centre. She was also contact person for IMF/World Bank and Board member, Insurance Regulatory Authority.

Bagyenda’s sad ending in financial sector

Those who have watched Bagyenda’s rise in the financial sector especially at BOU claim that despite the fact that she was about to retire, her current position is precarious and is likely to impact on her future dealings in the financial sector.

She will mostly likely concentrate on private business, albeit with hiccups, they say.

Crude Oil Export Pipeline To Increase Uganda, Tanzania FDI By 60 Percent

The foreign direct investment (FDI) to both Uganda and Tanzania as a result of the construction the East African Crude Oil Export Pipeline (EACOP) will increase by 60 percent, Ahlem Friga-Noy, Total E&P Uganda Corporate Affairs manager recently told journalists in Kampala.

“The magnitude of the project is big and we expect that during the construction phase the direct foreign investment for both Uganda and Tanzania will increase by 60 percent. That should give you an idea of what magnitude we are talking about.” She said.

Friga-Noy was recently speaking at a press conference organized by Association of Uganda Oil and Gas Service Providers (AUGOS) to announce the upcoming Local Content Stakeholder Dialogue on March 28th-29th 2018 at Hotel Africana in Kampala.

The East African Crude Oil Pipeline is intended to transport crude oil from Uganda's oil fields in Hoima through the Port of Tanga, Tanzania to the world market. The 1445km long pipeline is largely being funded by Total.

The heated crude oil pipe line, commissioned by President Yoweri Museveni and Joseph Pombe Magufuli of Tanzania in August, 2017 will cost $3.5 billion and will be completed by 2020 making Uganda join the ranks of oil producing countries. The pipe line will on completion carry 216,000 barrels of crude oil for export daily.

The investment planned for the construction of this pipeline presents a myriad of opportunities for citizens and businesses of both countries. Both countries and the joint venture partners are devising means in which nationals can participate in this huge infrastructure project.

Engagements like the Local Content Stakeholder Dialogue which will happen next week presents an opportunity to discuss how businesses in both countries can maximize the opportunities the EACOP project presents.

Among the opportunities the EACOP project presents is direct employment for skilled individuals like welders, engineers, land acquisition (compensation), supply of quality food, security services, transportation services among others.

Friga-Noy notes that the participation of local content or man power in a project of this magnitude is key and that Total is willing to play a role and contribute towards building local content in Uganda.

“We strongly believe that it is important when you start a project like this in a country where oil is quite nascent partnerships between international and national companies are developed.

“This is a formidable way to ensure transfer of knowledge, skills, capacity building, increasing standards and meeting requirements. So this is one of the pillars we emphasis because it has the power to push towards local content.” She explained.

Address Uganda – DRC $10bn Reparations Case Amicably

Last month, February 2018, the timeframe set by the Internal Court of Justice (ICJ) to receive the outcomes of the negotiations between the Ugandan and DRC governments regarding the $10 billion reparations that Uganda owes the DRC elapsed.

The $10 billion reparations that ICJ awarded to the DRC government was in respect of a dispute concerning acts of armed aggression apparently committed by Uganda on the territory of the DRC in 1998.

The DRC government instituted court proceedings against Uganda at the ICJ in June 1999 and the decision that Uganda pays the DRC $ 10 billion was reached in December 2005.

This is not the first time that Uganda and the DRC have failed to hold successful negotiations within the timeframe set by the ICJ. For record following the court decision and award of reparations in 2005, the ICJ gave the Uganda and DRC an opportunity to discuss how to settle the claims. Unfortunately, 10 years later, the two countries had failed to reach a mutual agreement.

The failure prompted the DRC government in July 2015 to file new application to the ICJ requesting court to order Uganda to pay the reparations. In December 2016, the court awarded both parties (Uganda and the DRC) more time for negotiations and fixed February 2018 for Uganda and DRC to submit the outcome of their negotiations. Once again, the negotiations were unsuccessful.

It should be noted that part of the evidence used by the ICJ to make her ruling in December 2005 was contained in the Justice David Porter Commission report, which report Uganda attached as evidence in court. The report confirmed the looting of DRCs natural resources and implicated some top Ugandan government and military officials.

The report confirmed that indeed Uganda engaged in military and paramilitary activities against the DRC by occupying their territory and actively extending military and committing acts of violence against nationals of the DRC.

In addition to killing, injuring and dispossessing them of their property, and by failing to take adequate measures to prevent violations of human rights in the DRC by persons under its control among others.

As a country, we must understand how we ended up in such a mess and how we can get out of it without turning our country into a failed state. Most of the implicated individuals in the Justice David Porter report are known, wealthy and still working in government.

If Uganda is compelled by court to pay the said reparations, as a country and particularly as citizens, paying these reparations will make Uganda poorer and a possible failed state based on our economy with current (GDP of $25.53 billion, 2016). Moreover, over the years Uganda has accumulated an external debt of over $8 billion (over 33% of the GDP).

In addition, it could damage the intergovernmental relations that the two countries have tried to build over the years. For instance if Uganda is compelled to pay the said monies and as a result, the Ugandan economy collapses, Ugandans would blame the DRC government for their misery.

In the same vein, if Uganda refuses to pay the $10 billion reparations, the government and citizens of the DRC would view Uganda with negativity. Furthermore, economists would urge that since the assessment was done in 2005 over 15 years have elapsed, this would attract interest hence limiting any possibilities of Uganda having the capacity to negotiate and pay them. Moreover, this huge debt will be transferred to the over 40 million citizens including Uganda's innocent and unborn children.

On worse case scenery, it could lead to conflict between Uganda and the DRC with the DRC retaliating against Uganda for looting their natural resources and the extrajudicial killings perpetrated against her citizens.

This could result into loss of life, property and would worsen the refugee crisis in the Great Lakes region. In addition, the potential conflict can destabilise the economies of both countries even further.

Therefore, the Ugandan president should open up the negotiations with the DRC government and consider an out of court settlement with respect to sustainability of both economies.

In addition, the president of Uganda should consider constituting a multi-stakeholder committee comprised of representatives from government, the parliament, the judiciary, religious leaders, civil society, cultural leaders and regional bodies to persuade the DRC government to accept feasible terms on the settlement including reducing the costs.

Finally, the findings of the Justice David Porter Commission report should be acted upon and implicated government and UPDF who engaged in wrongful acts in DRC should be prosecuted and demanded to pay the reparation.

Sugarcane Farming Accelerating Food Insecurity in Hoima

By Busiinge George

Commercial sugarcane growing is accelerating food insecurity in Kabwoya sub-county Hoima district, the sub-county chairman has observed. The district has started feeling the pinch of plantation agriculture as a result of mushrooming sugar factories which are luring the local population to hire out their arable land to plant sugarcane.

The sub-counties feeling the effects include Kabwoya, Kiziranfumbi, Bugambe, Kitoba, Kyabigambire among others where cases of food insecurity and malnutrition have started to emerge because farmers are hiring out their land at give-away prices.

Steven Buryahika, the LC3 Chairman for Kabwoya observes that although sugarcane growing has increased household income, it does not necessarily increase food adequacy among households as farmers do not have alternative land to cultivate other crops since sugar-cane growing does not support inter-cropping.

Buryahika explains that there are few varieties of food crops cultivated by sugarcane growing households as he advises them to allocate more land for growing food crops as opposed to cash crops as a remedy to food insecurity.

None of the affected sub-county leadership has come up with bi-laws to address the problem of food insecurity. However Buryahika says as a sub-county, they are planning to introduce bi-laws which will prohibit farmers with less than three acres of land from planting sugarcane.

He also faults sugarcane plantation firms of failure to incorporate food security element in their policies to farmers. There are mainly two sugar millers located within Bunyoro which include Kinyara sugar works and Hoima sugar works.

Ruparelia Seeks To Expand Flower Farming

Flowers remain among the top five agricultural produce that earn Uganda millions of dollars in foreign exchange. The leading exporter of flowers in the country is Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia through his two firms Premier Roses and Rosebud Limited.

The businessman continues to show interest in the flower business. It has been reported that Dr. Ruparelia will acquire 9 square miles of land in Kayunga district. He was seen in Kayunga on Saturday interacting with residents as he scouted the land for the floriculture projects.

Ruparelia already runs two floriculture companies in Entebbe, Wakiso district — Rosebud Limited and Premier Roses. Rosebud and Premiers are the biggest exporters of flowers in Uganda, exporting over 180 million stands per year to over 10 countries and employing over 5000 Ugandans at the moment.

Based in Entebbe, Uganda, Rosebud Ltd is the country's largest exporter of roses, commanding around 40% of Uganda's raised export market. The green houses on the farm cover a total of 50 hectares producing and exporting over 12 million stems per month.

Premier Roses Ltd is the largest exporter of Sweetheart cut. The farm has steel structures and a 100% Hydroponics system supported by a fully automatic centralised irrigation system. Premier Roses Ltd is in the process of expanding up to 65 hectares of green houses for the targeted export of 15 million stems per month by 2014.

The two firms were last year granted a free zone developers license by Uganda Free Zone Authority (UFZA). “The new status means that both companies won’t have to pay taxes when importing inputs for their production process,” Richard Jabo the Executive Director of UFZA said last year.

On the same, Rajiv Ruparelia, he MD of Ruparelia Group said the freezone status will go a long way in helping boost the exports of roses for both Rose Bud and Premier Roses.“Currently, we face stiff competition from Kenya and Ethiopia who are producing large quantities of roses at less cost,” he said.

“It is about 35% more expensive to produce roses in Uganda. We are a landlocked country, freight charges are higher and there is no tax incentive. The free zone will create efficiency for us because we shall be more competitive on the international market.” Rajiv added.

Total To Train 200 Local Oil & Gas Welders

Total E&P Uganda has said 200 Ugandan capable welders will be trained and equipped with the skills and certification that enable them to work in the oil and gas sector. The training according to Total E&P Uganda General Manager Adewale Fayemi will be free of charge.

The beneficiaries must be residents of districts in the albertine grabben region and district that will host the crude oil export pipeline. To qualify for the training that will be conducted in Buliisa and Lwengo districts one must possess a welding certificate and experience of not less than two years.

Total speaking to journalists in Kampala on Tuesday said the training will develop a domestic pool of internationally certified welders of the American Welding Society Standard.

The training will be held over the course of at least 24 weeks and will initially benefit 200 welders from Nwoya, Masindi, Nebbi, Buliisa and Hoima, as well as the districts along the pipeline route, to include Kakumiro, Kyankwanzi, Mubende, Gomba, Sembabule, Lwengo and Kyotera.

Fayemi said Uganda’s oil and gas project is moving steadily into the development phase and a strategy has been developed to strengthen the National content potential and the ability for local companies to compete favorably.

“During the development phase, a lot of technicians will be needed for the project. It is therefore essential to train and certify technicians such as welders to enhance their knowledge and skills required to not only meet the demands of the project but also ensure that the highest standards of safety are considered. Due to the highly technical nature of the industry, quality and safety cannot be compromised” Fayemi added.

The training will be conducted by 2 Ugandan Companies, Q-Training also known as the The Assessment and Skilling Centre (TASC) and E360 Group Ltd. The two companies have commendable experience in providing manpower services for the past ten years, serving clients in large multi – national companies in the region.  

Calls for applications to the training will be made through radio advertisements on local stations, vocational training institutes, District officials and local government offices.

The trainers will perform technical training and certification of candidates up to 2G and 4G coded welding levels in line with the industry standards and health, Safety and environment training among others.


IRENA Welcomes Establishment of International Solar Alliance

On the occasion of the Founding Conference of the International Solar Alliance (ISA), the Director General of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Mr. Adnan Z. Amin, and the Interim Director General of ISA, Mr. Upendra Tripathy signed a Joint Declaration to deepen the cooperation between the two organisations to accelerate solar energy deployment.

“Driven by remarkable cost declines, innovative policies and new business models, solar energy has emerged as the fastest growing renewable energy worldwide. There is an immense opportunity at hand to bring its benefits to more and more countries around the world,” said Mr. Amin.

“IRENA estimates that solar must account for at least 35 per cent of global power capacity by 2050 to meet the objectives the Paris Agreement on climate,” Mr. Amin added.

“In this context, IRENA stands ready to work with ISA and its members to scale-up solar energy deployment as a means to expanding affordable, reliable and sustainable energy access, as well as to addressing climate and energy security concerns.

IRENA looks forward to strengthening collaboration with ISA, sharing its knowledge and experience, and making available its project facilitation tools and platforms.”

“The International Solar Alliance has a well-articulated goal to facilitate the mobilisation of USD 1 trillion of capital to rapidly accelerate the adoption of solar energy all over the world,” said Upendra Tripathy, Interim Director-General of the International Solar Alliance.

“While solar is fast becoming one of the most cost-effective ways to generate new power and deliver energy access, to deploy fast enough, complementarity must exist between our work and the broader renewable energy mandate and development tools established by IRENA. This fusion of capabilities will help to catalyse solar development in line with the goals set out under the Paris Agreement.”

Driven by rapid advances in technology and economies of scale, the cost of electricity from solar photovoltaics decreased by almost 70 per cent between 2010 and 2016. IRENA estimates that average cost of electricity from solar photovoltaics can decrease by further 60 per cent in the coming decade. Solar power is also a significant employer of people worldwide, with around 3.1 million jobs working in the sector in 2016.

The Joint Declaration affirms the commitment of the IRENA and ISA to collaborate on advancing solar deployment and projects through helping countries develop policies and regulations around solar energy and through the implementation of IRENA initiatives such as the Clean Energy Corridors and the SIDS Lighthouses.

IRENA’s project facilitation tools and platforms such as the Global Atlas for Renewable Energy, the Project Navigator, and the Sustainable Energy Marketplace will be made available to ISA, in support of its project-focused work in countries.

The Founding Conference of ISA, co-chaired by PM Modi and President Macron, is taking place at the Rashtrapati Bhavan Cultural Center in New Delhi and is being attended by heads of state and government, ministers, heads of international organisations and other high-level officials.

Delhi Public School Celebrates Champaran Satyagraha Movement Milestone

Delhi Public School International Kampala and the Indian high commission in Uganda on Friday marked 100 years of Champaran Satyagraha movement at the school campus in Naguru.

Champaran Satyagraha was the first disobedience movement against British rule in India in 1917 in the Champaran district of Bihar. While Champaran is a name of a place Satyagraha means "insistence on truth".

Under the British rule, many farmers in the Champaran district of Bihar were forced to grow indigo in their lands, much to their dismay. To fight this, a money lender named Raj Kumar Shukla reached out to Mahatma Gandhi and requested him to come and help them.

Ghandhi came to Champaran on April 10 of 1917 with a band of lawyers. Gandhi and his lawyers travelled across the district to different villages, meeting farmers and taking note of their sufferings and complaints against the forced indigo cultivation giving birth to the movement that participated in India push for independence.

Delhi Public School International, owned by Ruparelia Group and only school in Uganda offering India’s CBSE curriculum regularly participates in Indian cultural festivities.

The school’s mission is to foster the all-round development of children by facilitating their learning in an exciting, inspiring, challenging and innovative environment.
