Health experts from across Africa have expressed dismay at the failure by Uganda’s government to stem the tide of skilled health workers leaving the country for greener pastures.

They voiced their disappointment during the third Congress of the African Health System Governance network (ASHGOVNET) in Kampala last week. The congress was held under the theme,“Fostering capacity for health governance and leadership with a focus upon health work development.”

The health experts argue that if the current hemorrhage of the country’s workforce continues unchecked, it will be extremely difficult for Uganda to fulfill its commitment to regional and global Human Resources protocols such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) Workforce 2030 Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health to which Uganda subscribes.

A normal medical surgical theatre on the continent of Africa.

“It is disappointing that officials at Uganda’s ministry of Health (MOH) evaded all our efforts to discuss the extent of the problem of medical brain drain in this country and the possible measures to bring it under control,” said Dr Patrick Kadama, the executive director of the African Platform on Human Resources for Health (APHRH), an NGO committed to the fight against brain drain on the African continent.

Uganda subscribes to the road map for scaling up human resources for health for improved health service delivery in the African region 2012-2025, which was adopted by African health ministers three years ago in Angola. But experts say the evident apathy towards brain drain means health improvement targets are unlikely to be met.

“No one seems to care when health workers exit this country. When you express worry about the problem to MOH officials, they tell you there is a capacity to replace those who have migrated, when it is actually not true,” said the president of the Uganda National Academy of Sciences, Dr Nelson Sewankambo.

A Self-Styled African Spritual leader from the Tribal State of Acholi, Uganda, is a fake:


Mr Severino Lukoya walks out of Gulu Central Police Station last year after briefly being detained following the death of a child at his temple.

Posted 5 February, 2017



From casting himself as the untouchable almighty god (Lubanga Won) in late 1980s, it now required the intervention of an earthly police force in Agago District to save the father of late Holy Spirit Movement leader Alice Auma Lakwena from an angry mob.

The mob accused Mr Severino Lukoya Kibero, a self-proclaimed prophet, of preaching what they termed as false prophesies in their area and wanted to lynch him.

Mr Lukoya had travelled with his team of ministers to Kalongo Town Council to conduct door-to-door prayers, claiming that God had sent him to cleanse the area. Mr Lukoya is the leader of the New Jerusalem Tabernacle Church in Gulu Municipality where he preaches a mixture of Acholi traditional religion, Christianity and Islam.

It’s reported that before Mr Lukoya could embark on ‘redeeming’ prayer sessions, hundreds of angry residents confronted him and he was only rescued by the police who whisked him away to safety in neighbouring Pader District, several miles away.

Mr Albert Onyango, the Agago District police commander said: “Residents hate him because of the past rebellion his daughter led. They also believe Lukoya is a cult leader whose presence brings bad omen.”

Mr Onyango said Mr Lukoya’s activities in Agago District were in violation of a district council resolution that barred setting up of any prayer shrines.

“I think it is time Lukoya realised that he is not wanted in the district. This is the fourth time in less than two years that people are attempting to kill him,” Mr Onyango said.

Earlier last week, Mr Lukoya had told Sunday Monitor in an interview that God had called him out to walk on foot and do a door-to-door preaching until he covers the entire country.

“God wants peace to prevail in Uganda. He wants everyone to accept His word,” Lukoya said.

This is not the first time Lukoya’s activities are being stopped by residents and district leaders in Acholi sub-region for fear that his preaching could brainwash young people into another rebellion.

After the defeat of Lakwena, Mr Lukoya launched another Holy Spirit Movement in Acholiland. But unlike Lakwena, Mr Lukoya didn’t attract the same big following as his daughter. He surrendered to the government in 1989, but has continued to re re-emerge from time to time.

In August 2011, Mr Lukoya and his followers survived death when residents hurled stones at them injuring him and his followers in Mucwini Kitgum District. In March 2015, police in Gulu District arrested Mr Lukoya over an illegal assembly after he and his church members stormed Gulu Town and disrupted traffic and businesses.

In August 2014, authorities in Kitgum District demolished Lukoya’s temple after complaints that a paralysed man had died while being prayed for there.

In 2008, Mr Lukoya was arrested on accusation that he wanted to revive his daughter’s Holy Spirit Movement rebel outfit. But the High Court acquitted him and awarded him Shs13 million in damages for malicious arrest.

Tororo’s 14 Gigawatt solar plant is likely to boost African Energy Civilization and Uganda's National trade:

UGANDA, Tororo- The installation of the Shs7.4 billion solar plant in Tororo District is set to improve access to power and also boost trade in eastern region, leaders have said.

The solar plant has more than 32,240 photo voltaic panels and sits on a 14-hectare piece of land in Asinget Village, eight miles off Tororo-Jinja highway. It will generate about 14 Gigawatt hours (GWh) of clean energy per year. GWh is a unit of energy representing one billion watt hours and is equivalent to one million kilowatt hours. Gigawatt hours are often used as a measure of the output of large electricity power stations.

The project, which is developed under the Global Energy Transfer Feed in Tariff support scheme for renewable energy projects managed by Germany’s KfW Development Bank in partnership with Uganda’s Electricity Regulatory Agency (ERA), is funded by the governments of Norway, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

During the commissioning of the solar plant last year, State minister for Mineral Development Peter Lokeris said it will produce enough power to supply more than 170,593 homes for both domestic and commercial use.

He added that the government is focusing on the clean renewable energy sector, which produces electricity from wind, solar, hydro and biomass in order to reduce on carbon emissions.

“This is one of the interventions geared at ensuring consistent power supply, most especially to serve emerging heavy duty cement factories and the rest of the districts in the eastern part of the country,” Mr Lokeris said.

The minister added that new factories, including the phosphate mining factory, will need reliable power to operate and that the solar plant will close the gap.

Ms Helen Emagalet, a trader in Asinget Trading Centre, says the establishment of the plant is an opportunity for small scale entrepreneurs to boost their businesses. “This is a good opportunity for us as business entrepreneurs in this rural area because we will be in position to operate our computers and refrigerators, which has not been possible due to lack of power,” she says.

Appeal over tariffs

Mr James Akabwait, another trader, requested government to ensure that power tariffs are affordable to the ordinary people.

Mr Julius Wandera, the ERA senior communications officer, said the tariff for power from the solar plant will be at 16.9 US cents per kilowatt hour (KWh) for a period of 20 years.

“The consumers will only pay 11 cents per KWh while the remaining 5.9 cents will be covered by the development partners,” he said.

Mr Wandera explained that during the seven months of the plant’s construction, more than 350 jobs were created and more youth will be employed when it finally gets connected to the grid.

“More youth will be employed to assist with the operation and maintenance of the facility,” he said, adding that jobs in solar heating and cooling, installation, sales, research and development will also be created.

Mr Fredrick Angura, the Tororo South County Member of Parliament, said the initiative will address the electricity needs of the communities and spur urbanisation.

“With electricity available, our people will be in position to engage in small income generating projects such as selling water,” he said.

Tororo was in 1960’s considered as the second largest industrialised district after Jinja. It formerly had such as Tororo Industrial Chemicals and fertilisers (TICAF), Uganda Jute and Hessian, Tororo Steel Works, Tororo Oil and Soap Works, Universal Abestos and South Bukedi Cooperative Union ginnery, which have since collapsed.

Mr Angura appealed to government to consider lighting the neighbouring communities as a token of appreciation to the residents for accepting to give out their land to build the plant.

“It will be unfair for the village Asinget to remain in darkness yet it hosts the biggest power station,” he said.

Cement companies Simba and Hima, which have set up new factories in the district, are all expected to benefit from the power. Mr Morgan Gagrani, the executive director Tororo Cement Industries Limited, says the plant will address power shortage and quality, which he says has been lacking and affecting their production.

“We have been facing power shortages, which affects our operations but we are now excited,” he said.

This is a time where by region, religion/ education background, size, status, age and political affiliations can’t help us any more, it’s because the one we thought, he was ours, he turned away from us by first saying that he is Just freedom fighter and is working for himself and his children and is not a servant to any one and we all know that when we vote someone in any position of leadership, we give that person a position to serve no to look for his own wealth and his or her family. If you come out publically even at a big function to denounce the duties you were given by Ugandans and you still stand looking for another term to serve your desires and asking for more time for your exit not even to accomplish what you have started after 32 years you still need more time to plan your exit? East African Countries can’t come together because what others are fighting against, its what you are doing, how do you expect to bring together such countries when you are the root cause of all wars in those countries, you harbor Rebels and many other things. Museveni you’re the best traitor I have ever seen in Africa, Thank you very much!

The Magezi and Museveni bill of Age limit: This was planned long ago because by the time they removed term limits, they knew that time will come and they will come for it again, that is how he planned his strategy from the bush to rule for ever, If you think you can scare Museveni with blood, that is a necked lie, because Museveni is like a surgeon, he can’t be at the dead body when someone needs help and he or she is still alive. 

If they are saying they have done this and that, let’s stop paying for tax for at least 3 months and see whether Museveni will go to Rwakitura and sell his cows to run Uganda programs or any MP who will sell what it belongs to him to bring you electricity or water or make you roads. We Ugandans should know that without us this Uganda they call theirs can’t see ant light. This means, evening someone else can plan for us without museveni because Museveni knows to plan wars not development.

These people are saying that, the bill is giving the gap for all Ugandans to lead and this is the time when they have seen that this article is segregative when they are put in a target. They are opening one door and close the other for you to go through, after one door, the next is closed, what would you do? Now they have removed the age limit and opened for you to lead and have increased the nomination fees for presidency from 20M to 50M who can raise this money and assured that he/she can’t win. Am just speculating but just wait and keep my word.

Ugandans we don’t exercise our rights inherited from our fathers and was given by God not by the state. If you want true freedom: do nothing, say nothing and be nothing that’s how we should live like Ugandans and let them lead and fight for their families.

I wonder when you say you are a freedom fighter, may be its true but whose freedom as you are working for yourself and the family? Oh your family freedom and yours coz you are needed by many war crime fighters, that’s why you are protecting yourself as you ruin our future generation.

You have failed on most of your pledges and all Ugandans are now aware about your tricks, that you have been playing them. You now want to divide them through local council election so that we divide and you rule? Museveni! Don’t think we went to school to waste time like some of Your comrades who are hiding in the government you are leading like Sam Engola Defense minister, don’t think that we are not aware.

Now that we are aware: I argue all candidates of local councils and the women to create the environment that will keep harmony in our societies not divisionism of which the NRM government is targeting because it has realized that opposition has gained ground and they want to divide us. We can use small papers to write the names of our candidates with tight supervision since the villages are small and manageable. Don’t say that because so and so did this to me I have to do this to show him or her that you were upset, that one will not work and will bring back the situations of 1990 where we used not to share water source, paths were blocked no one greets the other, you can imagine those situations. There is no one who can achieve something single handed, we all need each other as families and societies and in our communities.

Museveni and his Mafias are eating up this country by misleading and misinforming the general public that all people support the removal of age limit in the constitution as opposition looks on!. Opposition should wake up to tell the public that all information given is for one side and the government has taken over all media houses and is misinforming the general public what they want to achieve.

NRM should give me only two reasons why the constitution must be amended and two groups of people who are benefiting in this and where we are getting a loss if it is not amended as Ugandans. If all these are not addressed to the public, then #WE #SHOULDNOT #AMEND#THEN #CONSTITUTION.

If you want to know the truth, that NRM MPs are there to benefit their family and not those who sent them, let one be laid off and you will hear the words against his own party

Finally, Opposition to be valid has also to give solutions not all time to blame the government for doing wrong because Ugandans also want to see alternatives as you oppose the ruling party and Museveni life presidency. If you keep on blaming the government and not giving the alternatives, people will keep going to those who are saying what they want to hear, no matter is the truth or feasible by the promising body. Ugandans are at cross roads where, they don’t know whom to follow or who to lead them. They are tired of Museveni and are seeing Besigye not giving the alternative. Ugandans Kyagulanyi God sent him to lead Uganda and don’t fear him as you call him all sorts of names even Museveni we were not contented with him when he came out, remember when he stood as MP in Kiruhura and scored less than his age votes but that did not stop him from going forward.

We need to entrust the top leadership as the one that has been running for 32 years are toned and tip off.




The Dead Bodies of two United Nation experts have been found in the Congo as violence continues on the African continent:

 The UN has 19,000 soldiers, police and military observers deployed in the mission, costing $1.2 billion annually in this violent African country.

Two foreign UN contractors who were kidnapped in DR Congo have been found dead, one of them decapitated, the government said Tuesday, as spiralling violence in the vast country sparked international condemnation.

The bodies of American Michael Sharp and Swedish national Zaida Catalan were found as the UN Security Council prepared for a vote on Wednesday, on extending its peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres vowed that the world body would do "everything possible" to bring justice in the case.

"Michael and Zaida lost their lives seeking to understand the causes of conflict and insecurity in the DRC in order to help bring peace to the country and its people," the UN chief said.

"I trust that the Congolese authorities will conduct a full investigation into this incident. The United Nations will also conduct an inquiry. In case of criminal acts, the United Nations will do everything possible to ensure that justice is done."

The two were kidnapped by unidentified assailants on March 12 along with four Congolese accompanying them in Kasai-Central province.

Government spokesman Lambert Mende said the woman's body had been decapitated.

The remote region has been plagued by violence since mid-August, when government forces killed Kamwina Nsapu, a tribal chief and militia leader who had rebelled against President Joseph Kabila's central government.

The violence has spilled over from Kasai to the neighbouring provinces of Kasai-Oriental and Lomami, leaving at least 400 people dead.

Several days before the two UN experts were kidnapped, a Uruguayan peacekeeper was shot and injured in the same region.

Sharp's father, John Sharp, said there was a "high probability," the bodies were those of his son and Catalan.

"Dental records and DNA samples will be used to confirm the identities. This will take some time," he added on Facebook.

39 officers killed

On Monday, Congolese national police accused rebels of massacring 39 of their officers in Kasai.

The victims were killed in an "ambush" early Friday as they were travelling in trucks, and buried in a mass grave by supporters of the late Kamwina Nsapu, a police spokesman said.

Jordan Anderson, Africa analyst for IHS Markit, cited reports that all 39 had been beheaded.

The Kamwina Nsapu militia "is increasingly taking violent and hostile action against anyone it sees as being outsiders, interfering in the Kasai," he said.

The United Nations, European Union and African Union on Tuesday expressed "grave concern" over the spiralling violence in Kasai.

The organisations "condemn this despicable act and express their condolences to the families of the victims," they said.

They called for an "urgent response from the country's political leaders" to curb the violence and "urge the defence and security forces to exercise restraint in the efforts to restore order in the Kasai."

The UN Security Council is set to vote on Wednesday on extending its mission in the DR Congo, the largest and costliest UN peacekeeping mission in the world.

The UN has 19,000 soldiers, police and military observers deployed in the mission, costing $1.2 billion annually.

About 100 of those troops were recently dispatched to the Kasai region.

'Playing with fire'

France warned last week that drastic cuts to the mission would be tantamount to "playing with fire" as the DRC is also embroiled in election turmoil.

France has circulated a draft resolution to renew the mandate of the peacekeeping mission, but is facing scrutiny from the United States which is seeking cuts to UN peace operations.

The influential Catholic Church in DR Congo brokered a deal in late December to pave the way for elections by the end of 2017, but the agreement has been bogged down in disputes over the appointment of a new prime minister.

Elections would bring an end to the rule of Kabila, in power since 2001.

The Church and the electoral commission said earlier this month that the growing unrest in Kasai threatened to derail voter registration.

Police reinforcements meanwhile were sent to strategic points in the capital Kinshasa on Tuesday after clashes between demonstrators and officers in several districts, where tyres were burned and roads blocked.
