Culture enthusiasts are in for a treat next Wednesday May 21 when the National Theatre plays host to the World Culture Day. The event is part of Unesco's Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity initiative and is celebrated annually.

The day aims to provide an opportunity for people to deepen their understanding of the values of cultural diversity and to learn to live in harmony. Unesco has continued to promote the awareness of crucial relationships between culture and development and the important role of information and communication technologies in this relationship.


The National Theatre as an arm of the Uganda National Cultural Centre has partnered with the Uganda Theatre Network and East African Theatre Institute to celebrate the day here in a big way.

The entertainment line up will include Makerere University's MDD (Music, Dance and Drama department), Okulamba Dance Company, Bitone Troupe, Kitara Cultural Group, Stepping Stone (a modern dance troupe), Icons for Christ (14C), Jericho Dancers.

Notable entertainers like Julie Ssesanga, Richard Kagolobya, Dan Ssetabba, Judith Adong, Kwezi Kaganda and John Bosco Kyabaggwe will use their craft to delight the audience.

Museveni tour criticised

PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni did not address the problems of West Nile region during his recent tour, Obongi MP, Hassan Kaps Fungaroo has said. Addressing journalists at Zawadi hotel on Saturday, Fungaroo said Museveni did not address the problems facing the people, especially those of Adjumani and Moyo districts.

“How can you tell a Madi to plant mangoes for poverty eradication when he does not have good roads or electricity for storage, knowing that mangoes are highly perishable?” he said. Fungaroo, a member of the main opposition party, Forum for Democratic Change, said instead of repairing the Pakwach railway to connect the country with southern Sudan, Museveni talked about things that could instead make the poor man poorer.

UPC calls for agric boost
The Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) has asked the Government to double the funds allocated to agriculture in the next budget. Addressing journalists yesterday, the party officials advised the Government to increase the agriculture budget to not less than 10% of the national budget if the Prosperity for All scheme is to achieve the intended objective of reducing poverty in the country.

“Many countries including Canada and Denmark have become developed because of agriculture. Uganda’s comparative advantage is in agriculture,” said UPC vice president Livingstone Okello Okello

Hello,

Interfaith Summit Spreads Islam's Message of Peace
Badea Abu Al-Naja, Arab News


MAKKAH, 7 June 2008 - The international conference on interfaith dialogue that ended yesterday at Al-Safa Palace in Makkah called on all people, irrespective of their race, religion, culture or country, to come together to promote a culture of peace and tolerance.

The conference ended with the reading of the official statement by Abdul Rahman Al-Zaid, assistant secretary-general of the Muslim World League (MWL), which organized the conference.

"The conference has been held at a time when the world faces countless challenges that threatens the very existence of mankind. The conference affirms that Islam has a solution to all these crises and it is calling upon all Muslims, jointly with other people, to find solutions to all issues," the statement said.

The call to have Muslims and non-Muslims work together to solve problems afflicting the world came with a recommendation to set up a center for dialogue to be named the "King Abdullah International Center for Cultural Relations" as well as the establishment of the King Abdullah International Prize for Cultural Dialogue.

The statement also urged Muslims to work with other cultures, irrespective of their views, to come up with solutions.

"The discussions, held in several sessions, focused on the Islamic roots of dialogue, the methodology and rules of dialogue, with whom the dialogue should be made and the topics for dialogue," Al-Zaid said, reading from the prepared statement.

The statement also stressed the need for people to unite in their efforts against the waste of natural resources and the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction.

In addition, the conference appealed to all people, regardless of their ideology, religion or ethnic background, to propagate noble values that would end the present moral degeneration. It also called for concerted action to eradicate corruption and alleviate poverty.

The first session urged various groups and schools of thoughts within Islam to close their ranks and achieve unity of the Ummah. Muslims should attempt to understand other religions and cultures and strive for peaceful coexistence with others, the statement said.

The three-day conference, which was opened by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah on Wednesday, brought together Muslim scholars and media personalities from across the world. It ended with a note of thanks to King Abdullah for initiating and supporting the summit.

Arua district budget estimates fall by 18%

By Frank Mugabi

THE Arua district local government has passed a sh21.8b budget for the 2008/2009 financial year. Presenting the budget to the council last week, finance secretary Sam Wadri Nyakua, said the estimates had decreased by 18% from last year due to the creation of the Maracha/Terego district.

The district was carved out of Arua in 2005 although it is yet to take off due to wrangles about the location of the headquarters. The case is in court pending disposal.

The conflict was also affecting the human resource performance of Arua, Nyakua noted, explaining that civil servants were still ‘taking care’ of running business in Maracha/Terego that should otherwise be recruiting its own staff.

Due to the 18% decrease, he said, Government funding for development programmes like the Northern Uganda Social Action Fund (NUSAF) and the Northwest Smallholders Agricultural Project would be cut down.

Other reductions are expected in graduated tax compensation and unconditional grant disbursements.

“We expect to receive sh18.9b (87% of the total budget) through central government transfers while sh2.3b (11%) will be contributed by donor organisations,” said Nyakua.

“We shall collect about sh532m, representing only 2% from local revenue sources.”

The finance secretary observed that Arua would require additional support to make good its promise to upgrade the Inzikuru (former Barifa) Stadium to promote sports.

The playground, now in a state of disrepair, was named after athlete Dorcus Inzikuru when she won a gold medal and set a new steeplechase record at the Commonwealth championships in Helsinki, Finland, in 2005.

Hello,

What a sizzling stretch of sweet summer!

A few of us agreed that the best way to crown this sizzle of a summer was to have a sizzle of our own on Tuesday, July 1st, at the Burnaby Fraser Foreshore Park at 3:00 p.m. The East-most point of the Park has always been our spot. Join us, won't you?

Bring your favourite roast and drink. I will bring the stove and charcoal.

Law centre to tighten entry requirements

By Charles Ariko

THE public has lost confidence in the legal profession because of corrupt lawyers, Andrew Kasirye, a member of the management committee of the institution, has said.

“We are concerned about the diminishing standards of professional excellence. That does not augur well for us as lawyers. We are going to push up the requirements of the qualifying students if it means passing out only two students per year,” Kasirye said.

He was on Friday addressing post-graduate law students of the Law Development Centre during a dinner at the Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala.

“We are not going to succumb to populism. Lawyers are people of excellence and we are not going to bring the standards down,” Kasirye said.

He observed that whereas in the past a number of factors were considered for one to join the legal profession, today, universities mainly considered only the grades and the ability of the students to pay the lucrative tuition fees.

Kasirye added that a committee had been set up to scrutinise postgraduate students admitted to the Law Development Centre.

The centre is the only institute in the country that trains graduate lawyers in legal practice, a requirement that they must fulfil before becoming advocates.

A degree in law is one of the requirements for one to study the bar course.

The president of the Uganda Law Society, Oscar Kihika, cautioned lawyers against abusing their professional code.

“A lawyer’s biggest asset is his or her integrity. It is possible to earn a decent living without engaging in unprofessional conduct,” Kihika said.

He told the students, who included Lt. Gen. Moses Ali, Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi and Brig. Henry Tumukunde, that the legal career was one of the few professions where one could easily employ himself, therefore, there was no need for them to hunt for jobs.

“Jobs start with you. Create your own opportunities and employ yourself.”

Fred Ruhindi, the Deputy Attorney General, advised the students to seek employment in various sectors and open up law firms.

“Don’t think small. Legal professionals should see themselves across the board. To achieve success, you have to manage your performance to excel,” Ruhindi said.

A lot has already been aired and published in the media about the life of the late Henry Wako Muloki so this eulogy will focus on just a few things which have not been said so far.

Birth and education
Prince Muloki was born on February 18, 1921, to Ow’ekitiibwa Ezekyeri Tenywa Wako and Yunia Nakibande, who got married iñ 1915. Wako had become the first Musoga president of Busoga in 1919 and in 1939 became the first Isebantu Kyabazinga of Busoga up to 1949 when he retired peacefully from power.

Young Muloki attended Budo Junior School from 1927 and became head prefect at King’s College Budo for two years (1941-42). At Budo, he excelled in English and won a prize in form of a book titled “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare” in commendation for being an outstanding student leader. The prefects under him included Edward Mutesa, the Kabaka of Buganda, who was football captain and George Wilberforce Kakoma, the music prefect. Kakoma got the first degree in Music in East Africa and composed Uganda’s National Anthem in 1962.

Between 1943-46, Muloki read a diploma in Agriculture at Makerere College and was a contemporary of Mwalimu Julius Ngerere, Tanzania’s first president, who read a diploma in education. Muloki also excelled in cricket and served as president of the students’ Guild.

After Makerere, Muloki was posted to Serere Agricultural Research Station where he excelled in crop and dairy farming and was later transferred to the Ministry of Agriculture in Entebbe. Afterwards, he was posted to the then district, as an assistant agricultural officer.

In 1955, Muloki replaced Prince William Wilberforce Nadiope who had served as the second Kyabazinga for six years in 1949-1955. Nadiope was elected in 1949 to succeed Ezekyeri Wako.

Muloki’s first tenure as Kyabazinga: 1955-62
Numerous Basoga historians have referred to Muloki’s first regime as Kyabazinga in 1955-62 as the “Golden Age of Busoga.” The Busoga government of these years was under the leadership of very highly educated persons. They included:


Yeseri Kazungu Mulondo (secretary general) who was also a Member of the Legislate Council in Uganda and a Member of the East Africa High Commission Assembly.

Yekonia B. Walukamba (secretary for Agriculture and Forestry) who was also a Member of the Uganda Legislative Council.

J.B. Lubandi (treasurer) who was an efficient finance manager and ended up as Mayor of Jinja in the late 1970s.

Under Muloki’s leadership, these men engineered numerous socio-economic development programmes for Busoga including:

Promoting coffee and cotton production, which increased family incomes and helped Busoga Growers Cooperative Union to grow into a formidable and well managed economic organisation.

Building secondary schools like Iganga Girls S.S (1955), Kiira College Butiki (1959), Wanyange Girls S.S. (1960), P.M.M. Madhvani College, Wairaka and Wairaka Farm School (1961).

Building local government infrastructure at county and sub-county levels.

Planting forests.

Establishing leprosy treatment units.

Establishing a Busoga Bursary Scheme which enabled thousands of poor Basoga children to attain secondary education and a Busoga Overseas Scholarship Programme which created opportunities for brilliant Basoga young men and women to study abroad especially in Great Britain.

Constructing well maintained feeder and bulungi bwansi roads.

Sending Basoga chiefs for leadership training programmes at Nsamizi Social Institute and abroad.

Building the Kyabazinga’s palace on Igenge Hill, to make way for the construction of Bugembe Cathedral on Bugembe Hill.

Establishing Bugembe Sports Stadium and Bugembe Library.

Promoting women development programs which inclied literacy and handicrafts education.

Encouraging the establishment of newspapers to promote pro- development ideas and programmes in Busoga.

In a nutshell, the first Muloki era created more confidence among the Basoga and gave them more hopes about their future in both the economic and political arenas. It was because of these hopes that Busoga boldly asked for and was granted semi-federal government on Independence Day.

Contribution to Uganda’s Nationalism
The first Muloki Government vigorously promoted cooperation with other kingdoms and districts in Uganda. On every Kyabazinga Day (February 11) the Kabaka of Buganda, the Abakama of Bunyoro and Toro, the Omugabe of Ankole and other traditional leaders would turn up at Bugembe to show their solidarity with Busoga. Additionally, Mulondo became the chairperson of the prime ministers from kingdoms and the secretary generals from districts in 1959-62. These two types of political activities showed that Busoga was pro-unity and pro-nationalism in Uganda. Lastly, it should be highlighted that Muloki was the only traditional leader who attended the swearing in of the first Prime Minister of Uganda, Ben Kiwanuka, at Parliamentary Buildings on March 1, 1961. In a short speech he made on that occasion, Muloki said among other things that political parties had come to stay in Uganda and would not just disappear into oblivion. These were indeed prophetic words from a foresighted leader, unlike those who were or who have been preaching that Africa does not need multi-party systems of governance.

Contribution to East Africa
When Muloki ceased to be Kyabazinga in October 1962, he was appointed a senior assistant secretary in the Ministry of Works at Entebbe from where he was transferred to East African Airways. In 1970, he became manager of East African Airways in Great Britain and in 1974 became the first African director of Soroti Flying School, until the breakdown of the East African Community in 1977.

A man with diverse talents
He was a passionate reader of different books on different subjects. For example, when I visited him on one Sunday afternoon at his Nakabango Palace, I found him reading George Orwell’s novel, Animal Farm. “Are you expecting the cows on your farm to overthrow your regime?” I asked jokingly. “Of course not” he answered, “but I need to understand anyone who claims to be a revolutionary. Some revolutionaries end up doing the opposite of what they were preaching before.”

We both laughed hilariously and talked a lot more about the National Resistance Movement (NRM) afterwards.
He had a great sense of history and keen on preserving his properties. While having a casual conversation with him in 2000, I asked him what type of relationship he had with his mother. To my amazement, he wiped a tear or two from his eye, stood up and walked to his pantry and brought an old plate in his hands. He told me that the plate had been given to his mother at her wedding day in 1915 and that she had in turn given it to him forty years later (1956) on his wedding day with his bride Alice Kintu.

He further revealed to me that his wife had been serving him food on that same 85-year-old plate.

Contribution to higher education
In 1987, Muloki requested the then Minister of Education, Mayanja Nkangi, for permission to establish Jinja Teachers College, Wanyange.

In 1994, he presided over the launching of Busoga University at Iganga and thus helped the Rt. Rev. Cyprian Bamwoze, Bishop of Busoga Diocese realise his 15-year dream.

In 2000, Muloki became the first Chancellor of Namasagali University, which has happily become part of Busitema University. Earlier, he had been an active Member of the Board of Governors of National Teachers’ College Kaliro which has also become part of Busitema University.

Muloki’s second term as Kyabazinga 1995 — 2008
In 1995, after the NRM Government and National Resistance Council had restored traditional institutions (which had been abolished in 1967 by the Obote I Regime), Muloki was re-elected Kyabazinga by his fellow Baise Ngobi princes. And his re-installation was attended by many dignitaries, including President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
As I waded through the huge crowd on that day to have another glimpse of my hero, I heard one old man ask another one an intriguing question. “What sort of man is Prince Muloki, who has bounced back to the Kyabazinga throne after 33 years in the wilderness?”

This question made me realise that Muloki was not just a leader with a great sense of humility, but also a foresighted and charismatic leader who loved his family and people dearly. He had retained moral authority even when he was out of power.

He was a gentleman in every sense of the word in the same mould as Mahtma Gandhi, Julius Nyerere and Nelson Mandela. He had beautiful handwriting like the former Presidents of Kenya and Zambia (Daniel Arap Moi and Kenneth Kaunda) respectively and a high sense of humour.

Muloki’s last message to the people of Busoga
The last time I attended one of his addresses to the people of Busoga was at Bugembe. He gave a brief memorable speech. He advised Basoga to concentrate on the five vowels a, e, i, o, u which he said stood for the following:
Agriculture - the mainstay of our economy.
Education - which nurtures people’s brains and turns them into engines of revolution in individual heads.

Industry - which enhances human innovation and creativity.
Organisation- which enables people to harness individual
talents for the good of all and
Unity- which helps people of diverse interests and aspirations to move in one direction at a time.
I hope that all the people of Busoga and other Ugandans will listen to these words of wisdom.
Lastly, I am making a humble appeal to our church leaders to allow us sing the personal anthems of the late Inhyebantu and the late Isaebantu in recognition of their commendable contribution to Busoga, Uganda and beyond. The anthems are Hymns 161 and 137 in the old hymn book.

Hello,

kadara kursum is suggesting the following article from http://www.arabnews.com:
What Obama and blacks may have to face
Randall Kennedy I The Washington

I am a black man born in 1954, the year of Brown v. Board of Education.. Tales of racial oppression and racial resistance were staples of conversation in our household.
Never before have my emotions been so exercised by a political campaign. For one thing, never before has a candidate so fully challenged the many inhibitions that have prevented people of all races, including African-Americans, from seriously envisioning presidential power in the hands of someone other than a white American. With intelligence, verve and elegance, Barack Obama has opened the public mind to the idea of a black president and made that idea broadly attractive. The senator’s progressive politics, cosmopolitan ethos and pragmatic style have turned me into an enthusiastic supporter, and I savor the prospect of his triumph. Yet the possibility is very real: Barack Obama could lose. If that happens, then what? How will I feel? How will other black Americans feel?
In September 1960, Sen. John F. Kennedy, needing to allay anxieties about his religion in his quest to become the nation’s first Roman Catholic president, addressed a Protestant ministerial association in Texas. At the end of his speech, he declared that if he lost the election “on the real issues,” he would return to his seat in the Senate satisfied that he had been “judged fairly.” He also said, however, that if the outcome was determined by a religious bias that deprived 40 million Americans of the chance to become president on the day they were baptized, “then it is the whole nation that will be the loser ... in the eyes of history, and in the eyes of our own people.”
Whether black onlookers believe that this election was decided “on the real issues” and that Obama was “judged fairly” will be shaped in part by future developments, including the nature of the campaign in its closing weeks (will race-baiting intensify?) and the demographics of the final voting tally (will people who have traditionally voted Democrat vote differently this time around?).
I anticipate that most black Americans will believe that an Obama defeat will have stemmed in substantial part from a prejudice that robbed 40 million Americans of the chance to become president on the day they were born black. Deep in their bones, they will believe — and probably rightly — that race was a key element, that had John McCain been black and Obama white, the result would have been different.This conclusion will be accompanied by bitter disappointment, and in some quarters, stark rage. Black America, of course, is diverse. Some black conservatives will undoubtedly be delighted by an Obama defeat. There are also black leftists who oppose him. A close variant is the camp of blacks who fear that his victory would misleadingly suggest that America is no longer in need of large-scale racial reform.
There are blacks who’ll be indifferent to an Obama defeat because they don’t think that the outcome of the presidential race will have any real effect on their miserable fates. Others, protecting themselves against the pain of disappointment, have systematically repressed expectations. If Obama loses, I personally will feel disappointed, frustrated, hurt. I’ll conclude that a fabulous opportunity has been lost. I’ll believe that American voters have made a huge mistake. And I’ll think that an important ingredient of their error is racial prejudice — not the hateful, snarling, open bigotry that terrorized my parents in their youth, but rather a vague, sophisticated, low-key prejudice that is chameleon-like in its ability to adapt to new surroundings and to hide even from those firmly in its grip.
If Obama is defeated, I will, for a brief time, be stunned by feelings of dejection, anger and resentment. These will only be the stronger because the climate of this election year so clearly favors the Democrats, because this was supposed to be an election the Republicans couldn’t win, and because in my view, the Obama ticket is obviously superior to McCain’s.But I hope that soon thereafter I’ll find solace and encouragement in contemplating this unprecedented development: A major political party nominated a black man for the highest office in the land, and that man waged an intelligent, brave campaign in which many millions of Americans of all races enthusiastically supported an African-American standard-bearer.
Even if Barack Obama loses in November, he will have bequeathed to all America something that should bring comfort and pride to even the most disappointed of his followers. He has reached the edge of the pinnacle. And shown that we can stand atop it.
— Randall Kennedy is a professor of law at Harvard University and the author, most recently, of “Sellout: The Politics of Racial Betrayal.”

African History Month - October 2008
Greetings family,

Welcome to this African History Month newsletter update.

As we move closer to the end of October, there are several events that need to be given extra mention in order to help elevate them above the usual jamboree of sports, singing and dancing.

African History Speaks
Ending this year's season on Friday 31st October, 6-9pm at the Council Chamber, Harrow Civic Centre, Station Road, Middlesex HA1 2UL is the essential African History Speaks event that Includes presentations highlighting key African empires before trans-Atlantic enslavement. There will be presentation of prizes to winners of competition on The Contribution of pre-trans-Atlantic Enslavement Africa to Mankind, screening of a short DVD on African History produced with Harrow students, and a kora performance.
www.btwsc.com

Remembrance: David 'Rocky' Bennett
This October also marks the anniversary of the passing of David ‘Rocky’ Bennett. Many of us are familiar with the tragic case of Steven Lawrence and how the subsequent inquiry into events surrounding his death led to the publication of the McPherson report.

David’s death had similar reverberations throughout the mental health sector and led to an inquiry and publication of the Bennett Report, a wide ranging report which highlighted its findings of malpractice and exposed institutional racism in NHS treatment of mental health patients.
Whilst the government attempted to reject or water down some of the 22 recommendations made in the report, the mental health sector was almost unanimous in accepting their failings and made many public statements promising change. Unfortunately just as Britain’s police force now rejects evidence of their institutional racism and continues to abuse and conduct anti-African attacks on young people, the mental health sector has been able to institutionalise its anti-African malpractice's, emboldened by reckless, dangerous new legislation introduced by New Labour. BMH UK have organised a national service on Mental health to mark the anniversary of his passing. Details are below.

100 BMOL - Education Through Film
The 100 Blackmen of London also continue their all year round focus on our history with their brilliant Education through Film programme.

***EVENTS***

1. TRADITIONAL ISLAMIC MEDICINE IN THE UK

Hakeem Mohammad Saleem Khan, The Mohsin Institute (Leicester)

Friday 7th November, 2008

6.45-8.45pm, Abrar House, 45 Crawford Place, London W1H 4LP (nearest tube: Edgware Rd / Marble Arch)

Tibb is a living tradition of natural medicine that has been practiced throughout human history in different cultures. As a dynamic living tradition it developed in the Middle East whilst coming into contact with many other forms of health and medicine. This inclusive approach enabled this tradition to integrate into it the wide spectrum of knowledge from various cultures. Because of this diversity and richness, Tibb is referred to by many different names: Hippocratic, Eastern, Islamic, Greco-Arabic, sufi Humoral medicine, Unani, Hikmah and Tibb.

Does this type of traditional medicine work? How does it view, and how is it viewed by, conventional western medicine? Are the two approaches complementary (holistic vs. reductionist) or conflicting?

The Mohsin Institute was established in 1978 in Leicester, UK, by Hakeem Muhammad Saleem Khan and is the leading organisation for practice, education, research and training in the wisdom, science and practice of Tibb and other forms of alternative medicine. Hakeem Khan trained in Tibb and Hikmat under traditional teachers in Pakistan.

2. Kashmir: Shedding Light on a "Territory of Desire"

Dr Ananya Jahanara Kabir (Senior Lecturer in Postcolonial and Commonwealth Studies, University of Leeds)

Wednesday 12th November, 2008

6.45-8.45pm, St Ethelburga, Centre for Reconciliation and Peace, 78 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AG

SYNOPSIS

Why is Kashmir so intensely desired by India and Pakistan? How did it come to occupy the particular place it does in the imagination of these two nations, which since 1947 are locked in a bitter territorial dispute over this region? And why have Kashmiris been routinely locked out of the conversations over the political fate of their homeland? This talk will examine how Kashmir, in particular the Valley of Kashmir, has been represented in different media (film, literature, travel writing, and so on) as a 'special place', a 'territory of desire', since the late 19th century. It will explain that the roots of the current conflict lie in these modes of representation, which routinely showed Kashmir as a desirable landscape but found little room for the representation of Kashmiris within this construction. The second half of the talk will link this discussion to a consideration of recent political upheavals in Jammu and Kashmir over the 'Amarnath Shrine Land' controversy, and suggest that new means of representation (eg those opened up by the internet) are giving Kashmiris new modes of response to age-old wranglings over their 'territory of desire'.

Dr Ananya Jahanara Kabir is Senior Lecturer at The School of English, University of Leeds. She holds degrees from the Universities of Calcutta, Oxford and Cambridge. She has been Prize Research Fellow at Trinity College, Cambridge, Research Fellow at Clare College, Cambridge, and, since 2003, Research Associate at The Centre for History and Economics, King's College, Cambridge. She has published widely on the relationship between culture and conflict in contemporary South Asia, particularly on the repercussions of The Partition of India, and the Kashmir conflict. Her forthcoming book, 'Territory of Desire: Representing the Valley of Kashmir' (University of Minnesota Press, February 2009) is the fruit of four years of research into the Kashmir problem, which included several visits to the Valley and Jammu between 2003 and 2006. While the Kashmir conflict has been hitherto studied exclusively from the perspectives of Political Science, History and International Relations, this book departs radically from these approaches, asking how, and why, Kashmir came to be so intensely desired within different nationalist imaginaries. It finds an answer in the Valley of Kashmir's repeated representation, from the nineteenth century onwards, as a beautiful, spiritual and special space. Analysing the conversion of natural beauty into collective desire through photography, scholarship, cinema and souvenir production, it exposes the links between colonialism, modernity, and conflict within the postcolonial nation. Simultaneously, through examining critiques offered by contemporary Indian and Kashmiri artists, it foregrounds the democratic importance of dialogue between creative intellectuals as a non-militaristic solution for political conflict.

This talk is organised in conjunction with Kashmir Insight, a global lobbying organisation set up with the aim of protecting human rights in Kashmir. The group's aims include lobbying the British and other Western governments to put pressure on India and Pakistan to respect human rights in Kashmir, campaigning for the removal of anti-human rights laws, and raising awareness of Kashmir in the West by holding cultural programmes and talks.

Kashmir Insight is an impartial and non-partisan organisation. It will report on and campaign against all human rights violations in Kashmir regardless of victims' ethnic, religious or national affiliation. Focusing especially on the draconian laws that have facilitated human rights violations and inhibited political freedom in Kashmir, the group aims to join hands with civil society organisations in India and Pakistan working for the repeal of restrictive laws such as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act.

· potentially delivering some complimentary services from the facility, and a portion of the school has been set aside for such purposes. The CAC is also reaching out to other established community groups for assistance and programming support.
· In May 2006, Asset Management and Public Works Department completed a detailed building condition assessment of the facility. The report is available upon request.
· The scheduling of programs proposed by these two groups complement each other and allows maximum use of this facility.
· The site is currently zoned US (Urban Services), and the proposed programs will comply with the permitted uses allowed for in this land use.
· The CAC, with support from Administration, is currently negotiating with the Province on providing a salaried person to act as program manager/director.
Communications with the Community
· Contact has been made and information shared with the neighbourhoods in the immediate vicinity of the school. This includes contact with community league executive in Wellington, Athlone, Kensington and Calder.
· All parties involved in this project recognize that it would be advantageous to conduct immediate and ongoing consultations with the community in order to promote open relationships and address any sensitivities associated with the redesignation of the former junior high school.
· A representative group of Winnifred Stewart Association and the CAC will meet during the four years of this project with community representatives, represented by the Community League. Quarterly meetings to discuss centre activities, community questions and any issues that may, from time to time arise will be established. These groups can be called together more often, if required, to address any emergent issues.
· The tenants of the school will invite community members to an Open House event once up and running and will regularly reach out to engage community members in centre activities.
· They will also look to provide regular updates about centre activities through community newsletters to community members at large.
Justification of Recommendation
1. The City of Edmonton has identified successful immigrant integration as a key issue the city faces in being able to rely on immigration to help meet future labour requirements. This special project applies to very relevant, high-need communities with a grass-roots approach that will empower the community to build its own institutions and solve issues at the ground level.
2. This project effectively uses a closed school in Edmonton for much needed community services. Use of the school will allow the building to continue to benefit the community and city as a whole. The City is fundamentally playing a “broker” role that recognizes both the need to appropriately use closed schools and respond to the needs and challenges of the CAC.
3. The CAC and the individuals and families it works with require basic support to establish needed services and programs. Programs offered should reduce issues associated with crime, poverty, family violence and continual gang activities that have challenged other Canadian cites. The reduction of these important social issues will also result in a reduction or aversion of costs the community would incur through increased delivery of its health and social programs if these groups continue to be unable to find building space for programs of support and development.

Dear kadara kursum

Self Manage
There is a huge hole in the heart of all our educations. It is where the skills and abilities of self-management should be. No one teaches us how to manage our thoughts, feelings, attitudes and behaviour, so we find it hard to manage the four Rs – relationships, roles, responsibilities and resources. So let’s get started. Consciously choose the quality of your thoughts today – accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative and clean up the waste.

UN meet opens new era of peace
P.K. Abdul Ghafour | Arab News

JEDDAH/NEW YORK: A special UN General Assembly session on cultural and interfaith dialogue opens at the United Nations headquarters in New York today.
Organized at the initiative of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, the conference is expected to usher in a new era of peace and prosperity in the world.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he had received "an encouraging list" of dignitaries who would take part in the interfaith dialogue. "This initiative will be a very important one in which world leaders, and representatives from different faiths will sit together. They will provide us with very important momentum," Ban said.
The interfaith dialogue is meant to deepen understanding and appreciation of religions, faiths and cultures, which will help create a favorable environment for the resolution of political issues, Ban said. The assembly has held two rounds of ministerial-level discussions on the topic in the past. This will be the first time that heads of state will take part in the discussions.
The UN chief met King Abdullah at his residence in New York on Monday evening and praised the Saudi leader's initiative in promoting dialogue between the followers of different religious faiths and cultures. "Dialogue will certainly bring peoples and nations closer," he told reporters.
Ban said he would personally follow up on the outcome of the two-day conference, adding that it would promote world peace. King Abdullah, who is the first Saudi king to visit the UN since 1957, will address the conference today.
King Abdullah and Ban discussed major regional and international developments, especially the situation in the Middle East. Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal, intelligence chief Prince Muqrin, Labor Minister Ghazi Al-Gosaibi, Finance Minister Ibrahim Al-Assaf, and Culture and Information Minister Iyad Madani attended the talks.
UN General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann has invited leaders of 192 member countries and observers, including the Vatican, to attend the conference, which will prepare the ground for an interfaith and intercultural meeting it will hold in 2010.
Enrique Yeves, a spokesman for the assembly, said a dozen heads of state and 40 to 50 government delegations have confirmed attendance.
White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said President George W. Bush would participate because "he believes that it doesn't matter what religion you are. President Bush believes that we all pray to the same God."
The landmark UN meeting comes on the recommendation of the World Dialogue Conference that was held in Madrid on July 16, which was attended by more than 300 leaders representing Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism.

GUEST COMMENT: The Gulf is not the new Eldorado
12 November 2008

Mohamed Ramady

The Gulf region is currently viewed as an alluring destination for those looking to change jobs or who have recently been made redundant as a result of the recent bloodbath in the world’s financial markets.


Visions of huge tax-free salaries, an enviable lifestyle and the opportunity to perform again in a region awash with petro-dollar liquidity means the GCC countries are seen as a new Eldorado in the eyes of Western bankers.


However, while this might have been the case a few months ago, the chill wind of the global financial meltdown has finally reached the shores of Arabia.


One Gulf government after another has been forced to react in similar vein to their Western counterparts, by guaranteeing deposits, extending liquidity to the inter-bank market, reducing interest rates and, in some cases, actively intervening in battered local stock markets by buying up local bank shares.

Shivers down the spine

The unimaginable then happened, with the announcement by Kuwait's Gulf Bank that some of its counterparty euro-derivative contracts had defaulted. This sent collective shivers down the spines of the local financial markets, and investors ran for cover, demanding more transparency.


What does this mean for the army of bankers packing their bags and heading for the Gulf? While there are still jobs for those in investment banking, as well as in the IPO sector and private equity origination, Gulf markets are now hunkering down and regulators are insisting that financial institutions go back to basic banking roots.


Anything seen as too complex is closely scrutinised and Islamic finance is beginning to be touted as a viable alternative to Western finance models. While it is still unclear how far Islamic institutions might have been affected by the recent turmoil – they are part of the international financial system, after all – there is an unquestionable resurgence in this area.

Opportunities in Islamic finance

This gives opportunities for Western bankers offering their services in areas such as Islamic finance, risk management, regulatory oversight, trade finance, and expertise involving capital preservation and inflation hedging products.


Those with operations experience, as well as commercial and retail banking backgrounds, will be welcomed, as the regional banking structure is still heavily geared towards this target market. Banking is not the only sector that will need such expertise, as the Gulf’s private sector is also scrabbling for high-quality chief financial officers and internal risk managers, given that financial institutions are no longer prepared to provide easy credit, but are segmenting local clients according to more traditional lending risk ranking.


If you are still inclined to operate in a highly charged and innovation-driven environment, which rewards success through so-called mega-deals, the Gulf is not the place for you.

Alternative destinations

While Dubai might still be the destination of choice, especially given its liberal image, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and even Saudi Arabia are worthwhile destinations for those with more traditional banking backgrounds.


Banks in these countries will be playing a significant role in domestic economic development for the foreseeable future, fuelled by energy revenues, sizeable government reserves and large commercial bank deposits.


There is one small catch – due to the vast number of applicants nowadays, expat salaries and perks will be coming down in the Gulf. But for those that do make it, the rewards can still be satisfying, especially in helping to build up a sounder financial system in this crucial part of the world. But those with a gung-ho, mega-deal mentality should stay at home.

CITY CIRCLE NOTICEBOARD

Thursday 13th November 2008

***EVENTS***

1. City Circle Event: Minority Muslims in the West: Some Theological and Civilisation Considerations - a talk by Dr. Mohammad Seddon (University of Chester), in association with the International Institute of Islamic Thought.

Friday 14th November 2008, 6.45-8.45pm, Abrar House, 45 Crawford Place, London W1H 4LP (nearest tube: Edgware Rd / Marble Arch)

The phenomena of western colonialism and globalisation have both fissured and synergised Muslim identities through imposed political nation-state nationalisms and 'virtual' ideas of universal brotherhood. The combined effects appear to have facilitated a distinct postcolonial and anti-western sense of 'Muslimness' that is deemed a considerable potential threat to modern western hegemony. But what of Muslims living as minorities in the west? How do they attenuate ideas concerning their 'belongingness' and issues relating to the marginality of their faith? This talk examines the paradigms of 'minority Islam' from the Prophetic era and considers how contemporary western Muslims might resolve their marginal predicament.

FREE ENTRANCE - ALL WELCOME

2. City Circle Event: Religion & Philosophy: Friends Or Foes? - Dr Peter Adamson (KCL), Dr Mahbub Gani (KCL)

Friday 21st November 2008, 6.45-8.45pm, Abrar House, 45 Crawford Place, London W1H 4LP (nearest tube: Edgware Rd / Marble Arch)

This talk and discussion will be based on Ibn Rushd's (Averroes') writings on the harmonisation of religion and philosophy.

Ibn Rushd (d.595 AH/1198 CE), known in Latin (and usually in English) as "Averroes", is renowned as the greatest medieval commentator on Aristotle. Later medievals could say "the Philosopher" and not bother actually naming Aristotle -- everyone would know who was meant. Similarly, to quote Ibn Rushd one needed only to say "the Commentator." But one of Ibn Rushd's most famous works is not a commentary on Aristotle; it was rather written as part of his work as a legal scholar and judge. In this work, "The Decisive Treatise (Fasl al-Maqal)," Ibn Rushd takes up the question of the status of philosophy in Islam. He argues that the Qur'an actually commands the study of philosophy for those who are able, and furthermore claims that the philosopher is the one who is in the best position to determine the true meaning of difficult passages in the Qur'an itself. These ideas are provocative, yet show how a deep commitment to the truth of the Qur'an might be reconciled with a deep commitment to studying philosophy, even philosophy written by pagans like Aristotle.

Peter Adamson is a Reader in Philosophy at King's College London. Having received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Notre Dame in 2000, he has gone on to publish widely in Greek and Arabic philosophy. His publications include two monographs, on the Arabic version of the works of Plotinus, the founder of Neoplatonism; and on al-Kindi, the first philosopher to write in Arabic. He also co-edited the Cambridge Companion to Arabic Philosophy and several other books on philosophy in the Islamic world.

In association with the Critical Reading Group, based at King's College London.

Hello, Majid s/o Mzee. Amonye [Alemi RIP.]

kadara kursum is suggesting the following article from http://www.arabnews.com:
Principle of justice is key: King
Arab News

NEW YORK: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah yesterday urged world leaders attending a historic conference on interfaith dialogue at the United Nations to learn lessons from the past and establish justice in order to end violence.
"We say today with a single voice that religions through which Almighty God sought to bring happiness to mankind should not be turned into instruments to cause misery," the king said in his keynote speech at the Culture of Peace Conference organized by the UN General Assembly.
"Human beings are created equals and partners on this planet. Either they can live together in peace and harmony or they will inevitably be consumed by the flames of misunderstanding, malice and hatred."
King Abdullah added that the focus on differences by followers of different faiths and cultures had led to fanaticism and destructive wars.
"There was no need for such wars ... The time has come for us to learn lessons from the ruthless past and unite together on moral values and lofty examples that we all believe in ... We can leave our differences for God to make His judgment on the Day of Judgment."
The world desperately needs to learn the positive lessons of religion, said UN General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, who opened the conference. All religions teach "social responsibility," he added, but the world has "become contaminated by the spirit of selfishness and individualism."
D'Escoto said that the world must choose between the values of consumerism and greed, or social responsibility and ethical behavior, including the economic and political spheres.
His attack on the "unbridled greed" of the "dominant" Western culture struck a chord among most leaders at the conference.
The plenary meeting at the UN headquarters in New York - attended by nearly 70 heads of state and senior officials - is an initiative put forward by King Abdullah, aimed at hastening action on some of the most urgent challenges facing the world.
"All the tragedies the world witnesses today is the result of its abandoning of a major principle, the principle of justice, promulgated by all religions and cultures," said King Abdullah, who is the first Saudi king to address the United Nations in 51 years.
Everybody in the conference hall appreciated King Abdullah's efforts in trying to unite the world.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon praised the king for playing a crucial role in organizing the conference. He said a global effort was needed to confront a rising tide of communal strife and religious extremism.
King Abdullah lambasted terrorism.
"(Those who indulge in) terrorism and (other) crimes are enemies of God and enemies of every religion and culture," he said. "They would not have appeared in the presence of tolerance."
He blamed the decay of family values for the spread of drug abuse and crime.
King Abdullah told world leaders that interfaith dialogue would help revive lofty values and reinforce them in the minds of peoples and nations.
He thanked world leaders and other dignitaries who came from different parts of the globe to attend the conference.
"We would like to emphasize here that our interest in dialogue was inspired by the teachings of Islam and its values and because of our concern for the future of humanity," the king said. "We'll stretch our hands to all those who love peace, justice and tolerance."
The king concluded his speech by reciting a verse from the Holy Qur'an: "O people, we created you from a male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of God is the most righteous."
"Your Majesty, the King of Saudi Arabia, I was listening to your message," Israeli President Shimon Peres said from the podium after the king spoke of the need for religious tolerance and said terrorism was the enemy of religion.
"I wish that your voice will become the prevailing voice of the whole region, of all people," said Peres. "It's right, it's needed, it's promising."

PE
People tell the story of Amin in isolation of the roots of his Dictatorship. Truth is: it was the British, Israeli and CIA that organized to overthrow Obote and install Amin. The Briish press at first loved Amin so much and described him as a “gentle giant.” Read the The Making of Idi Amin By Pat Hutton and Jonathan Bloch, New African, February 2001. The story is too familiar to those who know how western interests have contributed to the destruction and underdevelopment of Africa.

in this. I don’t find it particularly amusing that the same policy makers that created this havoc find it a thriller to watch in their living rooms.

The former Ugandan leader Idi Amin.

The son of Idi Amin has broken his family's two-decade vow of silence about dad hoping to put the record straight about the dictator following release of the Oscar-nominated The Last King of Scotland.

Jaffar Amin has also called for a truth and reconciliation committee to investigate his father's reign of terror. "Dad is the only person that has ever been accused and sentenced, incarcerated by opinion, without it ever reaching any courthouse," said Jaffar, 40. Jaffar Amin it will be a difficult battle trying to humanise him. He says the film will compound many negative images.

"Dad's image cannot be changed," said Jaffar, who is writing a book about his father. "If I bring an understanding, it will be very little because he's in a compartment and getting him out of there will take a thousand years."



"I'd ask dad, what happened? He'd look at me and say, 'people fought me, I fought them, but I never killed innocent people. God will be the one to judge me.'"

Jaffar, the 10th of Amin's 40 official children by seven official wives, said: "I don't want to fight what has been written, but I want to show another side. I want to show a parent, I want to show my father."

The film had its premiere in Uganda last week but none of the Amin family attended. The family fled Uganda when Amin was overthrown in 1979 by Tanzanian-backed rebels. They lived in Saudi Arabia, given a huge monthly allowance on condition the former dictator kept silent. He kept his promise up to his death in August 2003, aged 78.

Jaffar returned to Uganda in 1990 and worked for a courier company. He now does voice-overs for advertisements.

Hi Members

I am drawing your attention to a growing interest among many here in the Lower Mainland that are working or volunteering in Uganda to be taught a working vocabulary of Luganda - at least to ask for water.

I am personally not aware of anyone who is a position to offer help or lessons in this area, however, if someone in our midst is able and willing to assist, I am requesting that you contact me as soon as possible.

The two most recent groups (both NGOs) to have contacted me will be departing in the first half of next year and will be based in Masaka and Mukono and are available to start immediately. Terms of engagement will be discussed privately.

It seems to me this is a great opportunity for us to give back in some form in a way that is positive, productive and helps to sensitive the Vancouver volunteers to the Uganda make that Buganda culture.

I sincerely hope that this is a challenge we can meet.

Sincerely,

Alfred.

Hello,

kadara kursum is suggesting the following article from http://www.arabnews.com:
What ails Sudan's agricultural sector
Turki Faisal Al-Rasheed | Arab News

Saudi Arabia is in a better position to forge politico-economic partnerships with other countries with a view to achieving food security. The best partner in this respect is Sudan, known as the food basket of the Arab world. But foreigners are reluctant to invest in Sudan and the efforts made by the Sudanese government to overcome this reluctance have not met with much success. Under the deteriorating global situation, Arab countries that have agricultural potential, notably Sudan, have to bring in modern technologies and look for the best of encouraging agricultural investment and offering incentives to achieve this aim.
Why not? Sudan is blessed with fertile agricultural lands (more than 200 million acres). Only 20 percent of these lands are being utilized. Abundant irrigation facilities are also available (river waters including that of the Nile, rain waters and underground water). Furthermore, Sudan has a variety of weather (from 30 to 48 degrees centigrade), ranging from desert, and Mediterranean, savanna and Equatorial weather. There are different kinds of plantations and favorable environment for natural growth of various plants and agricultural products (farm and horticulture).
There are ample natural pastures and animal wealth while rainfall allows the growth of forests and woods. But despite the availability of suitable environment for growing various seeds, there are problems such as:
. Insufficient care given to seeds;
. No use of sprays and no exploitation of underground water for irrigation of plants in case of shortage of rainfall and during dry seasons.
. Lack of full mechanization in cultivation, harvesting, peeling, cleaning and packing; fertilizers and insecticides are applied in old ways.
. Lack of a plan for improving seeds and not using improved varieties of seeds.
. Sudan's domestic problems have been internationalized, giving the impression of political instability in the country. This discourages investors.
. There is no clear ownership policy. The land ownership system is based on land lease, that is the right of benefiting from the land for a specific number of years. Therefore there is no incentive to attract huge projects.
. The agricultural lands lie adjacent to the oil excavation areas and it is quite possible that the government may suddenly discover that the land given to an investor is located over an oil well and may confiscate it and give the investor another land. This means wasting the efforts, time and money of the investors.
. Sudan is a country of shantytowns and people are settling in areas the government wants to award to investors. This means the investors will have to pay money for resettling the people living near the lands awarded to them.
. The investors are also obliged to provide water to these people from the wells drilled by them for agricultural projects.
. The proposed areas for investment lack the necessary infrastructural facilities, and this increases the investment costs, especially in transportation and energy.
. There are any number of administrative fees, especially in the states. This is apart from those imposed by the central government. Consequently, the investors are confused as to whom they should deal with.
To sum up:
Sudan is in need of huge companies to invest in the agricultural lands in an ideal way. As noted above, lands suitable for agriculture are more than 200 million acres with less than 20 percent under use.
In the past, Sudan used to export large quantities of peanuts and it has quit the overseas markets due to the above-mentioned factors.
Sudan imports two million tons of wheat, its staple food, annually. This can't be justified when 160 million acres are available for cultivation.
The virgin land becomes barren when left uncultivated.
Huge agricultural investments will go a long way toward reducing unrest in Sudan. Investments in huge agricultural projects boost national income, reduce import bill (for agricultural products), provide a healthy, safe and permanent source of food, preserve the honor of the state and its people and protect the country against foreign intervention and economic pressures. All this means that senior Sudanese officials in charge of regulating agricultural investment system must reconsider the existing policies by eliminating their negative aspects and adding more incentives to attract national and foreign investors. The policies should be in accordance with the interests and ambitions of investors. Sudan should not allow a situation to continue where the virgin and fertile lands become barren while the government has to depend on imports to feed its hungry people.

Koboko to upgrade farmers unit
Monday, 24th November, 2008 E-mail article Print article

By Frank Mugabi

THE one-stop farmers’ centre in Koboko district is to be turned into a model for value-addition, the area MP, James Baba, has said.

Baba said the centre that was opened by President Yoweri Museveni in April, would be equipped with an oil extractor, rice huller and a maize mill.

The developments, meant to entice local farmers into commercial production, will be funded by the National Agricultural Advisory Services and Northern Uganda Social Action Fund (NUSAF) programmes.

“It’s going to be the first place of its kind in the country where farmers can store, process and market their produce. It will also act as their office, conference and meeting place,” Baba said.

Baba disclosed that they had installed a rice huller with a capacity to process eight tonnes of rice per day.

“That means we shall need 80 bags of rice everyday to maximise output. The question for the farmers is, are they prepared to grow enough to meet the demand? And they have said ‘yes’,” Baba said.

Baba, also the minister of state in the Vice-President’s Office, was speaking at the closure of a one-week farmers training on the principles of the centre in Koboko town on Saturday.

He observed that farmers had not been able to sustain improved technologies due to limited access to agricultural inputs, markets and advisory services, which the centre would solve.

He urged farmers in the district and in West Nile to start producing to generate income.

“Gone are the days when we cultivated only for the stomach. We must select viable enterprises and undertake them on large commercial basis,” Baba said.

The training, conducted by officials from Sasakawa Global 2000, aimed at establishing a firm leadership and management structure for the centre and empowering the farmers in commercial production.

The war in Congo is everyone’s concern

EDITOR—Recently, a lot of space in our newspapers has been given to news and views about topical issues like the NSSF-Temangalo deal and the US president-elect Barack Obama.

However, insufficient attention has been given to near hellish conditions and destruction of the war in eastern DR Congo involving Laurent Nkunda’s rebels and the soldiers of the government of DRC.

Apart from the possibility of hundreds of refugees fleeing into Uganda, few people have probably contemplated the possibility of the war flowing over into our country.

Apart from the fact that our country has already been involved directly in the DRC in the recent past, we should remember that at least two of our neighbours, Sudan and Congo, generated some of the resources either in terms of controversy over money from the sale of ivory or soldiers such as Anyanya 1 combatants being used to bolster Amin’s camp.

But on another note, the trouble in eastern DRC points to the catastrophe of Africa. This catastrophe has, as one of its components, the militarisation of eastern Africa (Somalia and Darfur).

A few years ago, there was optimism about Africa’s wars having reduced or stopped in places like Sierra Leone, Liberia, Rwanda, Mozambique, Angola, southern Sudan and Burundi.
But that is not any consolation for Uganda, for as President Yoweri Museveni once observed, peace and stability in the Great Lakes region hangs on the situation in Congo.

Put differently, the geographical expanse of Congo, with its mineral and other resources, is destined to be the locus of an intensified power struggle that looks likely to engulf Uganda and Rwanda. It would, therefore, be good to know what the African Union is doing in helping negotiate a peace deal.

Civil Defense finalizes Haj plan
Badea Abu Al-Naja I Arab News

MAKKAH: More than 13,000 personnel, 3,000 vehicles and eight helicopters will be working in Makkah and the holy sites during Haj, said Gen. Sulaiman bin Abdullah Al-Amro, commander of the Civil Defense’s Haj force.
A comprehensive Civil Defense plan will be implemented in collaboration with other concerned government departments, said Al-Amro, adding that the plan has been formulated and approved by Interior Minister Prince Naif, chairman of the Civil Defense Council.
“We have carried out a number of mock drills to improve the performance levels of our officers,” he said, adding that the Civil Defense is fully prepared to deal with all emergencies.
Al-Amro said plans have been formulated to face problems due to rains and flooding in the holy sites. “The plans specify risks and identify areas that might be vulnerable in the event of heavy rains and flooding,” he added.
Al-Amro said the weather is being monitored around the clock. “There is a committee composed of the Civil Defense and other concerned government departments to study the hazards of rains and floods all year round,” he said, adding that the committee is also following up on floodwater drainage.
Al-Amro said the Civil Defense has left no stone unturned in raising awareness about the dangers of rains and floods. He added that the Ministry of Haj is playing an important role in spreading awareness among foreign pilgrims before they arrive in the Kingdom.
Commenting on falling rocks in Mina, he said a geological team was working with the Civil Defense to identify locations where rocks might fall.
He further warned against the use of gas stoves during Haj and said anyone caught using such equipment would be fined.
Speaking about high-rise buildings near the Grand Mosque, which are not accessible using ladders, he said the owners of these buildings have been asked to take extra safety measures and to keep additional fire extinguishers as a first line of defense until the Civil Defense manages to reach the location.
“The Civil Defense has provided equipment capable of operating in mountainous and narrow areas as well as in high buildings,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Passport Department said it would appoint 28 women inspectors at checkpoints on roads leading to Makkah during the Haj season.
“The women recruits are university graduates with experience in working for the Passport Department. Women inspectors can play a significant role in identifying pilgrims without permits, particularly those who try to cheat officials by disguising themselves as women. They can also help detect women traveling on fake documents,” said Col. Abdullah Al-Harithy, media supervisor at the Passport Department’s Haj section.
“The women will be issued with special identity cards,” he said, adding that the centers are equipped with machines to help detect forged documents.
Al-Harithy appealed to citizens and expatriates to carry identity documents and Haj permits when traveling to Makkah. Anyone found without proper documents would be penalized, he added.

Baba (in coat) near a Juba-bound truck that on the Arua-Koboko Road recently


By Frank Mugabi

THE poor state of the Arua-Koboko-Oraba road has paralysed business between West Nile and southern Sudan.

The Koboko Member of Parliament, James Baba, said businessmen who were attracted to the market in Sudan, were suffering huge capital losses when their vehicles break down with their merchandise.

The 56km murram road is a gateway to the southern Sudanese towns of Yei and Juba through Kaya border post.
“Not at anyone time have I used the road and missed to see trucks overturning. Usually, there are others in a queue waiting for the road to be cleared,” Baba, who is also the general duties state minister in the Vice- President’s Office, noted.

He said: “Repairing these vehicles costs a fortune, while traders at the receiving end have to grapple with the delay in delivery of the goods.”

Baba said the black spots were at the narrow bridges, especially Inde Bridge including a few steep slopes.

He said construction of the road should be expedited because of its significant contribution to the Ugandan economy.

The road is among those supposed to be developed under the national roads development and maintenance plan.

According to Daniel Alinange, the public relations officer of the Uganda National Roads Authority, the road’s design was completed and construction is expected to begin by 2010.

“We are waiting for approval from the African Development Bank. In the meantime, we are getting a contractor to at least upgrade the murrum and maintain it in good form,” he said.

He was optimistic that interim works would commence by the beginning of next month.

Does anyone care about our people?

EDITOR—I felt grieved and saddened by what I saw on BBC TV panorama on November 24, about life and health in African countries. What a shame to what is going on in our countries.

The programme highlighted what is going on in our hospitals. It showed devastating pictures of how human life is no longer taken as God’s gift.

Patients suffering on the floor in casualty wards, others dying with no one caring at all, mothers sleeping on the floor with their newborn babies and some lying under other patients’ beds.

My question is, is there anyone responsible for the lives of our people? Do governments really care anymore about the people who vote them into power. There are no staff, no medicine, no beds, and above all, no basic equipment for infection prevention, like gloves in a referral hospitals.

Recently, Africa was among the continents which celebrated the US president-elect, Barack Obama’s win, very optimistic that his governance would bring in more foreign currency to supplement our budgets.

I think Africa receives enough foreign aid, but what has kept us in this mess is the fact that office-bearers do not care about the common man’s needs any more. All they care for is their pockets.

With the current situation, one wonders if the money worth the American budget was poured in Uganda to help us out of poverty, would make any impact. Our leaders should stop thinking about personal gains and work towards helping our people.

Hello, Majid s/o Amonye [Alemi]

Kingdom, OIC lambaste attacks
Arab News

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia yesterday denounced the terrorist attacks in India's business capital Mumbai and expressed its condolences to the Indian government and people.
"The Kingdom has been following up the terrorist explosions in Mumbai with indignation and expresses its strong condemnation of this criminal act," an official source said.
Arab and Islamic organizations yesterday denounced the terrorist attacks in Mumbai. The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) condemned the attacks, saying violence had no justification. "These acts of violence contradict all human values and can be justified by nothing," an OIC spokesman said at the group's headquarters here.
Adnan Khalil Basha, secretary-general of the International Islamic Relief Organization in Saudi Arabia, condemned the terrorist attacks and expressed his sympathy to the people and government of India and families of victims.
"Lives of human beings are so valuable that this barbaric act should not have occurred. Nobody and no religion will endorse this act of terrorism," Basha told Arab News. He stressed the need to stop such terrorist acts to protect humanity from going back to the age of forest law.
In Cairo, Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa said such "criminal and terrorist acts aggravate the vicious circle of violence and counter-violence." He expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and to the Indian government and people.
Egypt's opposition Muslim Brotherhood condemned the attacks in a statement and hoped that the "perpetrators of these heinous crime would be brought to justice to receive the ultimate punishment."
US President George W. Bush called Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to convey his sympathy for the victims of the "despicable" attacks and offer US help, the White House said.
World leaders expressed anger and horror yesterday after Islamic militant attacks in Mumbai left over 125 people dead and deliberately-targeted Western hostages fearing for their lives. British Prime Minister Gordon Brown sent Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh a message assuring that "the UK stands solidly with his government as they respond, and to offer all necessary help. "These outrageous attacks in Mumbai will be met with a vigorous response," he said.
Canadian Prime Minister Harper expressed "deep and profound sympathy and condolences to the families and loved ones of those killed and injured by these heinous acts of violence, including many in Canada. "These attacks targeted people from India and around the world," he said. "They were attacks on values we hold dear, and we share your loss." Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari "stressed the need for taking strict measures to eradicate terrorism and extremism from the region." Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai said: "Terrorists are especially challenging South Asia. A vigorous response to counter these terrorist challenges requires an even more intensified regional cooperation and coordination in all aspects."
NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer blasted the "despicable" raids. "I condemn in the strongest possible terms the mindless and indiscriminate terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Attacking innocent people, tourists, and patients in hospitals is despicable and cowardly," he said in a statement..
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the violence was "totally unacceptable."

Dad was a playful and mischievous man and he liked to laugh. We enjoyed lots of laughter with him. He loved doing the Acholi Welcome Dance, which resembles the Maori Welcome Dance. He loved jesting and one of his favourite jokes was to run at people with a spear the way Acholi dancers do in imitation dances. People would be shocked to see this huge figure hurtling at them. Dad would throw the spear so it landed at their feet. It was just a joke and not meant seriously. I likened dad to Mohammad Ali because he had the same sense of mischief. Dad was also a great fan of cartoons. He enjoyed slapstick. Tom and Jerry was his favourite. I hated and still hate it when people called and call my father a buffoon."











"Dad loved to dress well and he made sure us his children dressed well too. He loved everything British and he was particular about his clothes. He had a butler (Odero) to deal exclusively with his wardrobe. He had to have cravats and was obsessed by them. I have no idea about the difference between Louis Vuitton, Hermes or Dior, but dad could tell the difference at a glance. Dad had hand made shoes flown in from Britain and he loved anything British, if it was well made. This passion extended to his car collection, which included Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Rolls-Royces, with the exception of a Mercedes 300 coupe that he received as a gift from Libya's Muammar Gaddafi. This was a particular favourite."

"Another plaything of dad’s was an amphibious car. He would take his wives or girlfriends out in it and head towards a lake. The girls would start screaming as they thought they were going to drown, but the car just floated. This tickled him."

"Dad would take us his children with him in his Mercedes cars, when he went out to the various Ugandan provinces and districts. He would take with him a child or children from local mothers to show his loyalty to the area. When addressing constituents, dad would often say, "this is your child" - like the time he went to open the Kibimba Rice scheme in Busoga District. He took me with him because my mother comes from the area and so does my younger brother Moses’ mum. I remember my young brothers Moses and Mwanga being dressed in mini military uniforms on these trips, as I myself donned a safari suit."

"When I was nine years old in 1975, dad took us to Angola. It was a really nice day trip. Dad was friends with a CIA agent (Zeegla), who had new equipment from the US, including planes for our trips."

"We had a shooting range at one of our houses and all of us the President’s children were taught how to shoot, and how to strip an AK-47. My father liked us competing against each other to see who could dismantle the weapon quickest. My record was nine seconds."

"Dad was a great swimmer and he would tell us, "Whoever can hold his breath underwater for two minutes wins 100 shillings". He said it would help us be good marksmen."

"Basketball was another sport dad loved. He would watch films of the Harlem Globetrotters and then organize games with his troops. My father was 6 foot 4, but most of my brothers towered over him. I am the shortest at 6 feet 1 inch. Dad used to joke that we would make a great basketball team."


"The Tanzanians, helped by Ugandan rebels, eventually toppled dad in April 1979. However, prior to April 1979, I was with dad in the room when he took a related call. That day, dad, picked up the phone then slammed it down. He looked at me and said, "They have attacked me again; The Tanzanians. It is a big force this time". After that phone call, a long convoy of fancy cars brought the high command up to a resort at "Cape Town View" in Kampala for a meeting with my dad. He normally took us up there during our school holidays. This was the last school holiday I spent with him before I joined Primary six in 1979 and it was a very tense time. I realized that something was wrong because there were hordes of soldiers around whom I did not recognize. They were trying to convince dad to stand down. He said, "How can you ask me to do this?" The situation worsened from then on."



"Dad’s bombastic propaganda statements continued on radio. On March 26, 1979 the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (Radio Uganda) announced that the President was "cut off at Entebbe." This happened while the Tanzanian forces were still more than 70 miles away from Kampala. There might have been some truth in the announcement since this was the exact time dad was negotiating with Ghadhafi to receive his immediate family into Tripoli, and he still needed the useful Entebbe International Airport." "Since Van-Guards of the so called Liberation Forces had already possibly infiltrated some parts of the route to Entebbe by that time, dad addressed the nation during which he asked "Ugandans who believe in God [to] pray day and night.""

"The Liberators intensified their efforts because they were hell bent on overthrowing dad. On March 27, 1979, the "liberation" bombs ("saba-saba") landed on the compounds of the Republic House at Mengo and the Army Shop nearby in the evening."

"Dad’s Army continued to disintegrate but his bombastic propaganda statements continued on radio. On March 28, 1979, the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (Radio Uganda) claimed that dad had "smashed through the Tanzanian forces and reopened the road to Entebbe". The Uganda Broadcasting Corporation (Radio Uganda) and dad may have been living in a dream world as the world would have wished it to be but privately dad knew better. The bluff and the bombast that had served dad well for eight years were rapidly losing their effect. As a consolation, dad was now fighting a private war to evacuate some eighty members of his family who were being evacuated to safety in Libya. Meanwhile the District Commissioner of Kampala, Muhammad, addressed a rally in Kampala and he urged people to turn for work - business as usual, yet the rebels were actually 20 miles outside Entebbe at the time."

On the last days of my father’s rule in Uganda and the day my family fled to Libya flown in a Cargo Plane by a reluctant Egyptian Pilot:

"I will never forget the last days of our stay in Uganda due to the constant boom sound made by the Artillery and BM 21 rocketshell fire into the Capital. From Nakasero, we were all gathered at Command Post. Then we set off in a convoy towards Munyonyo (Cape Town View) and used the Garuga detour towards Entebbe, coming out near Kajansi since some liberation troops had already cut off and probably laid an ambush on the Main Road probably around the Lubowa Estates Area. We arrived at the old colonial residences (State House Entebbe) to await the planned flight to Tripoli, Libya."

"The day my family fled to Libya we could hear the artillery shells in the distance getting closer. It was amazing and there was a sense of disbelief. This huge convoy set out from Kampala to Entebbe Airport. Dad was having 80 seats installed in a Cargo Plane for all of us. He was talking to Gaddafi on the phone, telling him, "My children are coming". Dad sent us ahead but he wanted to stay on to make his last stand, even though he knew that the war was lost."

"Apparently, a reluctant Egyptian pilot had to be commandeered and he was paid cash down in hard currency so that he could accept to fly the President’s children out of the country. The Boeing 707 had recently come in from one of its expensive cargo transport flights of coffee to the USA. It had no seats whatsoever. So, some sixty to eighty seats were hurriedly placed in the plane to accommodate probably sixty persons who were given blankets against the cold emanating from the bare aluminium floor. I had actually been hurriedly discharged from Mulago Hospital following a sprain of my ankle and still had an itchy plaster of Paris on. What an uncomfortable ride to safety this was, all the way to Tripoli!"

"The Boeing 707 managed to take off under strange circumstances, due to the fact that artillery shellfire was raining into the airport area. The bodyguards were forced to place four cars around the plane and they raced down the runway as lighting for the pilot until we were airborne gang!"

On the day my father was toppled:

"At that time the truth about dad’s impending downfall remained concealed by the Kampala authorities. However, BBC World Service regularly intercepted Radio Uganda broadcasts from their monitoring station at Caversham Park in England. Ugandans bold enough to follow the events at the risk of being discovered by the State Research Bureau intelligence agents quietly kept track of BBC broadcasts."

"Dad made a final broadcast in Kampala on Uganda Broadcasting Corporation…He insisted, "I will stay here except when I leave Kampala for another place in Uganda". This announcement prompted Major Mzee Yosa, Sgt. ‘Bhuga, Captain Asio and several hefty Presidential Guards to waylay their Commander-in-Chief and place him in his factory prepared Mercedes Benz Rally car. Then the convoy of Expensive Flagship Mercedes Benz 240 SEL 6.4s set off in tow for Jinja just as Kampala was overwhelmed. Major Mzee Yosa and Sgt. Bhuga and Captain Asio played an exemplary role in getting dad out of harmsway.""On April 11, 1979, dad was toppled and there was a Cabinet in waiting ready to take over the Uganda Government."






Celebrations


On our life in exile:

"Upon arriving in Libya, Gaddafi had as was normal with his generous nature offered to send all of us dad’s children to Malta, which had the nearest good English schools. Egypt was nearest, but Libya’s neighbour was just about to sign a friendship treaty with Israel, and I guess it had fallen out with its Arab colleagues. By the time dad arrived after the fall of the country on April 11, 1979, I guess the plan was sidelined."

"I left behind some very prized items. I still see in my mind’s eye an ornate golden Mantle Clock left in dad’s state bedroom. The Mantle Clock was given to dad by Tito of Yugoslavia, on one of dad’s last state visits to the Balkans. That visit holds a lot of meaning to me since dad had promised me that if my grades improved he would take me on his next visit abroad. My grades did improve but my brother Lumumba was chosen on that particular trip and I remember my kid brother feeding a giraffe in the Belgrade Zoo on a photo shoot with the World War II hero. I remember asking my stepmother Mama Sarah if she had remembered to bring the Clock and she regretted that alas it had stayed in the State House in Entebbe."

"Dad was given a monthly allowance that funded an opulent lifestyle but life in exile was still hard. We had come from absolute power to almost nothing. Dad felt like the man who was once a Corporate Executive in New York but was now retired in Florida and had only the fishing to look forward to. Although Gaddafi was the most generous person I have ever known, dad eventually felt betrayed by his socialist agenda, when he sought the votes of African leaders to become the next OAU chairman in 1979. These African leaders included my father's Nemesis Nyerere so he felt he could not trust Gaddafi anymore. Instead, dad began to talk about going to Saudi Arabia since he had taken up a Saudi offer of refuge when he decided to become a staunch supporter of the Arab and Islamic struggle in 1972."

"We lived in luxury but it was still not home". I was with dad in Libya and Saudi Arabia and remember the luxury well. In Saudi Arabia, there was marble everywhere in our 15-room house but it was still not home. Dad was paid $30,000.00 a month by the Saudis. He had more than 30 of us with him and he would regularly tell us, "You have to liberate Uganda with the Fedayeen [Islamic soldiers]."

"While we lived in exile, we followed events unfolding in Uganda with interest…The new army that was recruited from these units now numbering some 5,500 men was desirous of being loyal to the UNLF as a democratic organ of unity. However it was consistently subjected to factional politics by the Obote/ Oyite/ Museveni and SUM cliques. It was not given a chance to develop itself as a national army. In this way, it was used in the factional struggles for power against the democratic organs of the UNLF, and this constituted the roots of rebellion within the UNLA, which its leadership fanned. This naturally led to the Dormino effect that was prevalent with Ugandan leaders being toppled every other month from Professor Lule through to Museveni in 1986."




~

Our Life in exile

"In Saudi Arabia, dad loved to shop….He would go down to Safeway - that was his favourite - and all of us the kids would grab a shopping trolley and pile them high with goods. The Lebanese security guards would stare at us in disbelief."

"Dad's favourite Play Exercise Ground at The "Cornishe" Jeddah was near a small estuary Inlet from the Red Sea, with that familiar dilapidated Yacht seemingly abandoned, anchored indefinitely in the shallow waters. We would leave the likes of Mama Iman (Mama Petit) and the young ones, pre-Iman, Leila and Rajab gang of three. Khadija Abiriya was still the youngest then."

"We still had the white Chevrolet "Comaro" 1980s coupe (the avid competitor to the Famous Burt Reynold's (Smokie Series Pontiac Transam). We would drive off along a straight stretch of the road along The "Cornishe" Jeddah then he would get out of the car and start jogging behind the car. Then he would instruct me to steadily increase the speed of this loud American sports car, while he steadily kept pace with me. Dad kept urging me to increase the speed while he gave chase!!!"

"I could not believe my eyes. This was indeed something to behold, man! This enormous 150-200 kgs garth of a man giving chase!"

"{Actually sprinting. Images of the 200-100 yards KAR Champion in the Fifties flashed through my Athletics Trained Sprinter's mind as I saw his knees steadily rising towards his solar plexus, in a Rhythmic Metronome action typical of natural sprinters.}"

"Then at say 200 metres, the illusion was broken when he suddenly stopped and bent low exasperated and breathing heavily!"

"Alarmed at what I saw from the rear side view I braked the "Camaro", screeching with that familiar "Over Stir" that often swings most American cars perilously towards the embankment. I parked the sports car, got out and rushed back to him, concerned. He shrugged me off and said he was OK, just getting back his breath. Incredibly he asked for a second round!…which we did! Then we drove back to the seashore, where he went in for his daily dip in the Red Sea, at his favourite spot, near the very same Dilapidated Yacht Hmmm!?"


On my father being an Anglophone at heart:

"Dad was a real Anglophile. He had a love-hate relationship with Britain. He wanted to be a loyal servant, despite his mannerisms…I am an example of what he wanted, because he “dumped” me in England for my education when we went into exile."

"When dad felt rejected by the British Government, he focused on Scotland. A lot of the colonial and Army officers early in dad’s career were Scottish. They were the backbone of the British Empire. Dad even offered to help them win secession from the United Kingdom. Hence the movie title "THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND"."

On my father’s continuing "mischief" in exile and capacity to get in and out of trouble:

"…Apparently, one day, dad headed out as usual in the same location, swimming out gently towards the same dilapidated yacht that sat in the middle of the estuary and moved past it heading out to sea. Aliga was still lounging on the sand when he suddenly glimpsed dad heading back to shore with strong strokes, in total urgency to get to the shore. He did get to the show, lumbering out of the water with his hand pointing backwards while he shrieked Shark! Shark!…Ha Ha Ha Ha, we did laugh - me, Aliga & Geriga at dad's capacity to get in and out of trouble…In 1949, the 4th Battalion went to Somalia and stayed there until 1950. One particularly horrifying incident happened to dad in Somalia. While taking a dip in a river, (he had been warned by the locals [Somalis] not to swim in the crocodile infested river but he did not heed their warning and jumped in), a marauding crocodile grabbed him around the ankle line and dragged him for some distance. How he survived nobody knows but somehow he got away!"

On cherished memories about our father, my sister Halima contributes:

"Good memories like they say are more precious than any commodity or monetary value. One such memory sticks to mind. Dad as usual woke us up early (Me, Fatuma, Araba, Khadija, Faisal) in preparation for our journey to Mecca that Friday. We set off along with Ma petite in the blue Range Rover, which was always tilted heavily towards dad’s side (ha ha ha). Anyway, so we got to Mecca, prayed, had lunch and then we all got in the car to head back to Jeddah. Dad tried in vain to start the engine but the car would not start. The Dantata's whom we often saw at Mecca on a Friday approached us and their driver asked if we wanted a lift back. Dad refused but instead he spoke to the escorts who arranged for a mechanic. He packed his wife along with Khadija and Faisal in a taxi. He then spotted a yemenia tiny PICK UP, OPEN-AIR datsun - you know the type. He asked the man how much it would cost us to get to Jeddah, which was small change. Dad then instructed me, Fatuma and Araba to get in the Pick Up track with him for the long drive back to Jeddah. Many people standing around were flabbergasted that a former head of state was getting into a small, dirty track driven by some Arab nomad but that's our Mze (old man) for you! I will never forget how the wind blew in our faces and we could not stop laughing and feeling embarrassed. Mze didn’t have a care in the world as usual. That is one journey I will never forget in my life and I look back at it fondly. I also remember the look on the pick-up driver's face after dad thanked him for the ride and gave him some money with baksheesh (tip). He felt humbled and honoured."

On my father’s devotion to Islam:

"Exile afforded dad the opportunity to take stock of his life, but I do not believe that he would express remorse or regret. He would put it this way "The people will appreciate what I was trying to do for the indigenous African". He was not defensive. He was simply saying, "God will be my judge". I’d ask dad, "What happened?" He’d look at me and say, "People fought me, I fought them but I never killed innocent people. God will be the one to judge me". Once dad fell silent on the world stage for most of 24 years, until his death in 2003 at 78 years old, he refocused his energy into understanding further his religion, Islam".


What does the Muslim Ummah think about the latter part of Idi Amin’s life including my dads devotion to Islam and being accorded the highest honour in Islam on the day of his demise?











Idi Amin with King Faisal of Saudi Arabia in 1972 -The friendship with King Faisal would ensure passage to Saudi Arabia, an opulent lifestyle in Saudi Arabia after his overthrow, a devotion to Islam and being accorded the highest honour in Islam on the day of his demise on August 16, 2003.

Hello, Majid Alemi Junior.

kadara kursum is suggesting the following article from http://www.arabnews.com:
Abdullah wins Walesa Prize
AFP

GDANSK, Poland: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah is to receive the very first Lech Walesa Prize to recognize his charity and humanitarian work, the prize's organizers announced yesterday.
A letter from Walesa to King Abdullah received by AFP yesterday asks him to accept the award for his contribution toward "inter-faith dialogue, tolerance, peace and international cooperation," as well as for his charity work.
Walesa devised the award to mark the 25th anniversary of his receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize, which he received in 1983 to honor his non-violent struggle against Poland's then communist regime.
Besides Walesa, the prize committee includes former anti-communist Czech dissident and ex-President Vaclav Havel, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and former Polish Foreign Minister Wladyslaw Bartoszewski.
In 2005, King Abdullah won hearts in Poland when he sponsored a costly and complicated operation at the King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh to separate Polish conjoined twin girls, Olga and Daria Kolacz.
The goal of the 100,000-euro ($126,500) Lech Walesa Prize, Walesa's aides said, is to "reward those who work for understanding and cooperation among nations in the name of freedom and the values of solidarity."

The annual Islamic pilgrimage known as the Hajj officially gets under way Saturday in Saudi Arabia. Saudi officials are working to avoid any repeat of the tragedies that have befallen the Hajj in years past.


Muslim pilgrims pray around the Kaaba at the Grand Mosque in Mecca

During the Hajj the muezzin calls worshippers to prayer, while pilgrims chant and pray as they circle the black, holy stone in the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The pilgrimage is one of Islam's five obligations, that every able-bodied Muslim must perform during his lifetime.

Every Islamic country across the world has a quota, stipulating how many pilgrims it may send to the Hajj, and the total number this year, is reported to be around 2.5 million people, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

Squads of Saudi rapid intervention forces, some dressed entirely in black, chanted at a training ground, outside of Mecca, near Mount Arafat, as they prepared for possible disturbances or natural disasters.

Saudi government TV reports 50,000 soldiers and police, backed by helicopters and armored vehicles, are being deployed. Scores of ambulances, firetrucks, and police trucks were also visible, amid the security detail.


Prince Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz (file photo)
Interior Minister Nayef ben Abdal Aziz, who heads the committee overseeing the annual Hajj, inspected preparations and reviewed police and army forces.

He told journalists the Saudi Kingdom has done its best to assure the comfort and security of pilgrims at the annual Hajj.

He says everything has been done to keep pilgrims safe and insure their comfort. He adds that he has received no information about any possible security threat, but that his forces, along with God Almighty, will work to see that nothing happens to disturb the tranquility of the Hajj.

Near the site where Hajjis symbolically stone the devil, Saudi Arabia has spent more than one billion dollars to rebuild a lengthy two-level pedestrian bridge in a bid to avoid casualties, following several deadly stampedes in recent years.

Groups of teenage scouts wearing red shirts also prepared for their role in guiding pilgrims near Mount Arafat.

The symbolic climb of Mount Arafat is the climax of the annual Haj as 32-year-old Lebanese Muslim Mustapha Ghalayini, who performed the pilgrimage several years ago, explains.

"The best day in Hajj is Arafat day, which is the day when all the people will be on Arafat Mountain," Ghalayini said. "This is the main reason of Haj, which unites all Muslims from all around the world, from East, West, South and North, all around, coming to this place on that day, staying that day on that holy place, wearing only two towels, white towels, and showing others around the world that this is what God wants ... us to be one person, one for all and all for one. It is the meaning of no one is above any one, we are all equal, we should all help each other, we should all be good to each other. There is no difference between the managers and the staff. There is no difference between the man and the woman; all are one. All should obey God and do good things."

Mount Arafat is where Mohammed delivered his last sermon to his followers.

"This mountain, from ancient times, in the Bible, in the Koran, it mentions that lots of things happened on it, such as one time about Prophet Abraham and his son Ismail, when he wanted to sacrifice his son for God, and God sacrificed his son with a big sheep," Ghalayini said.

Muzdalifa, where Muslim pilgrims perform the ritual stoning of the devil by casting pebbles at three stone pillars, is the scene of intense fervor, as pilgrims symbolically cast off the devil and his evil temptations, as this elderly Pakistani man explains.

"When stoning it, we are saying that 'Oh, God, Almighty Allah, we want your willingness, and we are hitting this devil, who has been forcing us to deviate from the path of Allah ...," he said.

In the final steps of the Hajj, pilgrims will have their heads shaved, before the final ritual slaughter of a lamb. Many Hajjis will not actually perform the slaughter, themselves, but will buy a coupon for a slaughtered lamb, and the meat will be donated to charity.

Muslim leaders should reconcile

Muslims world-wide today, celebrate Eid al-Adha which marks the end of the Islamic calendar.
This is an important day for the Muslims. Eid al-Adha or Feast of Sacrifice is the most important feast on the Muslim calendar. It concludes the Pilgrimage to Mecca.

Unfortunately, Eid al-Adha is being celebrated at a time when the Muslim Community in Uganda is facing serious challenges characterised by a major split within the community.

A section of the community is demanding the removal of the Mufti, Sheik Shaban Mubajje, the chief executive of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council.

The section argues that Mubajje is no longer fit to lead the Muslims because of the way he sold off some of the property belonging to the UMSC.

Although the Mufti was cleared on charges of fraudulent disposal of the property, the court raised questions about his integrity.

The court observed that the Mufti repeatedly lied to the Muslims that the properties had not been sold and stated that this was a very serious matter that touched on Mubajje’s moral values as a leader of a big religious community.

It is not good for the Muslims opposed to Sheik Mubajje to establish a parallel Mufti as they plan to do. It will be a return to the past when the country had parallel Muslim leaders – one based at the Old Kampala and another at Kibuli.

Recall the serious embarrassment the Muslim Community suffered when two rival Muslim leaders literally wrestled over a microphone at a national event at Kololo.

Muslim leaders need to come together and find a solution to the current impasse. Mubajje’s recent announcement to the effect that he will step down within next two years was encouraging.

Nevertheless, it is desirable that Sheik Mubajje step down immediately for the sake of harmony and unity of the Muslim Community and in view of the fact that his integrity has been put into question.

Stick to peace, kids urge govt

By Chris Kiwawulo

CHILDREN from northern Uganda have petitioned the Government to stick to dialogue to end the conflict in the area.

The over 200 pupils from various schools also asked the LRA leader, Joseph Kony, to sign the Juba peace agreement.

“We request the Government, the LRA, the Government of Southern Sudan and donors to let the peace process continue,” they said.

The document was read out by Patricia Demba, a pupil at Kitgum Public School, at the parliamentary gardens in Kampala on Wednesday.

It was handed over to MP Reagan Okumu (Aswa county), who assured them that it would be tabled before Parliament today.

Okumu attacked Kony for absconding from signing the agreement recently.

“Kony should stop fooling us by setting dates which he does not honour. You can fool people for some time but not all the time,” the MP said.

He asked the Government to consider withdrawing the International Criminal Court indictment, saying it was one of the major impediments to the deal.

The Civil Society Organisations for Peace in Northern Uganda (CSOPNU), a coalition of 78 NGOs, is supporting the petition.

Johnson Byamukama, the chairperson, said: “The Government and LRA must remain committed to negotiations.”

MPs Simon Oyet (Nwoya), Samuel Otada (Kibanda), Jimmy Akena (Lira municipality), Denis Obua (youth north), Hassan Fungaroo (Obongi) and East African legislator Nusura Tiperu attended.

3 million at Arafat for Haj climax
Siraj Wahab & Hamid Al-Sulami | Arab News

ARAFAT: After spending the day at the spiritual highpoint of meditation and prayers in Arafat, millions of pilgrims moved after sunset to Muzdalifah to spend the night there before they proceed at daybreak to Mina and Jamrat.
There they will perform the stoning and other rituals, including the animal sacrifice marking the Eid Al-Adha.
Yesterday, a sea of humanity made their trek from Mina to Arafat from dawn. Intonations of "at thy service, my God, at thy service," reverberated through the valley as the pilgrims stood to pray for God's forgiveness in the most spiritual moment of the entire pilgrimage.
The standing at Arafat is considered the most pious act in Haj because Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) told his companions 14 centuries ago while teaching the rites of the fifth pillar of Islam, "Al-Haj Arafat" ("Haj is Arafat") signifying that it is the importance of standing at Arafat. So far no major problems were reported in the event in which mediapersons said about three million pilgrims participated.
"The journey from Mina to Arafat was made in record time without major problems and the pilgrims could devote their worship in comfort and ease," Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, who is also chairman of the Central Haj Committee and the Higher Committee for Supervision of Pilgrim Transportation, said in a statement to the Saudi Press Agency.
A record number of pilgrims have traveled to the holy sites this year from abroad.
For the second day of the Haj, which lasts three more days, the male pilgrims wore two pieces of unstitched cloth (ihram) while the women were entirely covered apart from face and hands. Men will change to their normal clothes today after the rituals of sacrifice and head shaving.
In a sermon in the middle of the day when the pilgrims joined in a collective prayer at the Namirah Mosque in Arafat, Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz Al-Asheikh said the global financial crisis springs from ignoring the Shariah rules and practicing usury (riba) that is prohibited in Islam.
"Today we watch as this financial crisis unfolds and some companies and banks go bankrupt. This is the result of ignoring God's rules. Muslims must abide by God's rules, and build their economies accordingly," Al-Asheikh told the worshippers.
Islam has laid down the basis of economic security through economic principles far away from injustice and usury, Al-Asheikh stressed.
The 11,000 square meters Namirah Mosque is built on the site where the Prophet (pbuh) prayed while making the pilgrimage combining midday and afternoon prayers.
After stressing the importance of following the true faith, Al-Asheikh also emphasized the need for believing other messengers of God. "Whoever does not believe in the messages of the Prophets Jesus and Moses, peace be upon them, is considered an infidel," Al-Asheikh said.
The grand mufti also called on the Muslim world to unite in the face of terrorism to preserve their stability. "The Ummah is targeted by enemies who are keen on weakening it through creation of conflicts and disputes," the grand mufti said.
He also demanded the security of maritime trade and the need for keeping seas safe from pirates. "We must be cautious of terrorism and fight hostile criminal gangs that destroy countries and people," he added.
The grand mufti also stressed the need for obeying and supporting a ruler and government and opposing those who have scant regard for the lives, property and honor of people.
He also emphasized the need for intellectual security and protection from extremist, deviant, terrorist and extremist ideologies.
He lashed out at the electronic media that spread lurid and immoral ideas aimed at destabilizing the moral integrity of youth in general.
Meanwhile, the Civil Defense continued to urge pilgrims not to use cooking gas at the holy sites for their own safety. Gen. Sulaiman bin Abdullah Al-Amro, commander of the Civil Defense's Haj force, said that the ban reinforces a previous order of not using gas for cooking purposes at the holy sites, adding the ban applies to government sites also. In a press statement he said, "We are coordinating with the appropriate authorities to prevent cooking gas inside the sites."
He also said that the Civil Defense safety teams are regularly inspecting Haj camping sites to make sure that safety measures are applied. He also said statistics revealed that there is a decline in the number of people caught using cooking gas from past years, indicating that awareness has increased among pilgrims.
The Ministry of Health warned pilgrims about infections that could be caused by bad food habits while they are at the holy sites. The ministry said food poisoning could result from eating food that's gone bad. The ministry urged pilgrims to drink more water and take appropriate medicines and to check the expiry date on canned food.
The Saudi scouts managed to guide more than 17,000 lost pilgrims of all nationalities on the eighth day of Dul Hijjah in Mina and Arafat.
As part of an annual norm, the Kiswa (Kaaba cover), was changed yesterday on the ninth day of Dul Hijjah. Officials from the Presidency of the Two Holy Mosques Affairs took off the old Kiswa and installed the new one, which is made of pure silk and gold threads. It costs more than SR20 million and is considered one of the most exquisite works of Islamic art.
The Civil Defense, meanwhile, issued a warning not to overcrowd during the first day of Jamrat today. The Civil Defense identified the dangerous areas in Mina, Arafat and Muzdalifah and have fielded emergency teams and medical and ambulance teams in these areas for a quick response to any eventuality. The Civil Defense called on pilgrims to follow instructions for their own safety and not to rush to the Jamrat complex during peak times. They also urged pilgrims not to carry their luggage with them on Jamrat Bridge.
Civil Defense officials were ready in Mina and Muzdalifah with more than 3,500 members in different places to supervise the pilgrims' journey from Arafat to Muzdalifah and then to Mina. Director General of Civil Defense Lt. Gen. Saad Al-Tuwaijri said more than 208 fire hydrants have been installed in Muzdalifah. He said that there are 40 teams in Mina that are ready to serve pilgrims.

King unveils visionary budget
Khalil Hanware & P.K. Abdul Ghafour I Arab News

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia yesterday announced an SR475 billion ($126.7 billion) economic stimulus budget for 2009, allocating more money for education and increasing public spending by 15.8 percent (SR65 billion), despite a sharp decline in oil prices that have dipped to $43 a barrel.
Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah, who unveiled the Kingdom’s largest-ever budget during a Cabinet session at Khoraim Gardens, said a record SR225 billion has been allocated for new projects and SR122 billion is slated for education, training and scholarship.
The king said the budget allocation for new projects in 2009 was 36 percent more than the allocations made in 2008.
“The amount is three times more than the allocations made for new projects in the beginning of the 8th Five-Year Development Plan four years ago,” he said.
The 2009 budget projected revenues at SR410 billion, leaving a deficit of SR65 billion.
The Finance Ministry said Saudi Arabia was expected to make a record surplus budget of SR590 billion in 2008 with revenues projected at SR1.1 trillion and expenditures at SR510 billion.
The new projects that received budget allocations in 2009 include Princess Noura bint Abdul Rahman University, the largest women-only university in the world, and King Saud University for Health Sciences and their branches.
The new budget has also earmarked SR52 billion for health services and social development, SR49 billion for water, municipality, agriculture, industry and infrastructure, and SR19 billion for transport and communication.
“We have allocated large amounts for new road projects and for the maintenance of existing roads,” the king said.
He urged ministers and officials to implement the projects approved by the budget within the specified time in order to enhance services required by citizens and residents and boost the Kingdom’s overall development.
Addressing the budget session of the Cabinet, Finance Minister Ibrahim Al-Assaf said the Kingdom’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2008 was expected to grow 22 percent to SR1.75 trillion in current prices and 4.2 percent in stable prices. The oil sector was expected to grow 34.9 percent and private sector by 8 percent in current prices.
Preliminary estimates indicate that the Kingdom’s public debt will drop to around SR237 billion at the end of fiscal year 2008, which represents 13.5 percent of projected GDP for 2008 compared with 18.7 percent in 2007.
Referring to the new budget allocation for education, Al-Assaf said SR9 billion would be set aside for King Abdullah Education Development Project and for the creation of the Education Development Holding Company. Allocations have also been made for 1,500 new schools. The National Plan for Science and Technology will receive SR8 billion.
Under the new budget, 86 new hospitals with a total of 11,750 beds will be established while the Saudi Red Crescent Society would be transformed into an authority.
“Allocations have also been made for poverty-reduction programs,” the minister said.
Al-Assaf said budget allocations have been made for the two industrial cities in Jubail and Yanbu. The Real Estate Development Fund would receive a shot in the arm through replenishment of resources worth SR25 billion over the next five years.
The government will also deposit SR10 billion in the Saudi Credit Bank.. The public lending institutions would disburse SR40 billion among the beneficiaries of the lending programs.
Economy and Planning Minister Khaled Al-Gosaibi said the new budget that focuses on an economic stimulus plan was the best means to offset the impact of the global financial crisis and the economic recession. “The large-scale public spending of this size will play a positive role in increasing demand for goods and services and expanding liquidity to finance consumption, production and investment.”
Economic analysts described the budget as market-friendly and said it would boost the Kingdom’s economy.
“The Saudi economy is one of the most resilient among the world economies. It is well positioned for growth despite the global recession. The priorities given in the budget seem to address the challenges facing the economy,” said Adnan Soufi, managing director of SEDCO Financial Investments Group.
Faisal Alsayrafi, managing director and CEO of the Jeddah-based Financial Transaction House (FTH), was also bullish about the budget. “If we look at the global economy and what’s happening worldwide, we would definitely find ourselves in a much better situation,” he said..
He said the projected deficit of SR65 billion was due to severe turbulence in oil prices and other factors. However, the generous government spending on mega projects would boost the economy. He referred to King Abdullah’s earlier announcement that the government would spend $400 billion on development projects in the next five years.
“It is true that the deterioration in oil prices has impacted us. However, favorable oil prices in the past did help us build a strong reserve to be used as a cushion in times of need,” he added.
Howard Handy, general manager and chief economist of the Riyadh-based Samba Financial Group, said the government faced many challenges while drawing up the budget because of the uncertainty surrounding oil prices. “For 2009, the government faces the added complication of a much weaker domestic investment environment stemming from the impact of global credit dislocations and declining oil prices,” he said. In 2009, Samba expects the government to increase spending by around 10 percent over this year in its bid to bolster confidence and keep infrastructure projects on track. “This is precisely the role that fiscal policy should play in such an unsettled economic environment,” Handy said.
On the recurrent spending front, cooling inflation should help ease pressure on subsidy commitments. Yet with population growth continuing at around 3 percent and a weakened private sector unable to absorb many new job market entrants, upward pressure on current spending will remain considerable, he said.
“The outlook for 2010 is hazy, but a gradual rebound in oil prices and a small gain in Saudi crude production should allow revenue to rise by around 35 percent. Spending will also be stepped up by around 13 percent, but a return to a small surplus of SR19 billion, or 1 percent of the GDP, is likely,” Handy added.
There was no immediate impact of the budget on the Saudi stock market. That was because the budget announcement came much after the market closed.. The Tadawul All-Share Index (TASI) closed 26.04 points down at 4,748.04 with turnover of SR4 billion.

The Excerpt

“Dad was born during a heavy downpour of hailstorm. His birth coincided with the ending of the Islamic Haj Celebrations known as Eid Al-Adha, hence his Islamic name Eid, phonetically pronounced "IDI" by indigenous Africans and Kakwa. He was born at the Colonial Shimoni Police Barracks in Nakasero, Kampala, where my grandpa Amin Dada Nyabira was serving as a colonial policeman. Awongo as he was always fondly referred to by my grandma Aisha Aate of the Okapi/Lenya Clan of the Lugbara Tribe was the third child to grandma. Aate had previously given birth to a daughter who died either at birth or as a toddler, then Moro and, finally dad (Awongo). Grandpa had two other wives besides grandma Aisha Aate with whom he had other children.

Events surrounding dad’s birth were regularly re-enacted by grandma and other family members at family gatherings. I vividly recall a time when dad’s uncle Siri'ba, of the Piza Kakwa Clan re-enacted the events of dad’s birth at a family gathering in Kawempe Kiyindi Zone.

Grandpa was a particularly stern character and at the time of dad’s birth, he had reasons of his own for not accepting the infant Awongo as his own. Consequently, he demanded from amongst Elders of his Adibu Kakwa Clan that the infant Awongo be taken into the jungle and left there for three days. This was in compliance with a Kakwa tribal tradition where an infant whose paternal heritage is in dispute is taken into the jungle and left there for three days. If the infant survived the jungle then the child would be welcomed as a legitimate Progeny. Grandpa would only accept the infant Awongo if it survived the cruel ordeal in the jungle. So, the Kakwa Elders from the Adibu Clan relented and took the infant, Awongo into the Ko'buko (Koboko) County jungle and left him there for three days! On the fourth day, when the elders came for the child it was still alive!

“Like an Avenging Angel, your Grandma (Abuba Aisha {Asha} Aate) strode with fury in front of her husband and the Adibu Kakwa Elders”, recounted dad’s uncle Siri'ba. “At the next assembly, she placed an ancient KAR Rifle on the ground and a solemn curse on her husband. She proclaimed, “If this child is not yours, and is of a Munubi/Monodu, as you claim, let him languish in poverty and misery. But, But if he is of your blood, then let him prosper and succeed in this world to the highest position in the land, and may you, his Father, not see of his wealth and prosperity.” According to dad’s uncle Siri’ba, Grandma then stepped over the KAR Rifle in fulfilment of this powerful curse. The assembly was awestruck by Grandma’s curse since just the fact that the infant survived the jungle was good enough for justice to the mother and child. This occasion made it impossible for my grandparents to live together again and grandma returned to Kampala from Koboko with the infant Awongo, to live with her relatives who had retired from the KAR and were living in Bombo in the outskirts of Kampala.

Grandma Aisha Aate later told dad that Nakan, the sacred snake, had come to dad and wrapped itself around dad for warmth as it would do around its own eggs. It placed its head on the crown of dad’s head for the duration of the ordeal, offered Grandma. This tale is amazingly similar to a Meso-American legend of Lord Quetzal {Ku'Kaham}, yet dad, in all his wanderings on God’s Earth, or Grandma Aisha, whose sphere of knowledge was strictly cultural, would never have known of the legend.

Thus began dad’s long journey from an infant abandoned in a Kakwa jungle, to “the highest position in the land” as grandma Aisha Aate predicted.

I had the pleasure of residing with grandma Aisha Aate briefly between the tender age of three and four the year of her demise, which was one year shy of the year 1971 when dad ascended to “the highest position in the land”. Awongo grew into a strong lad, six-foot four inches tall. He outshone his contemporaries by his physical prowess and leadership qualities and “defied” all odds to ascend to the position of President of Uganda on January 25, 1971.

His was a very long journey punctuated by very many twists and turns – a journey that ended in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the Holly Land of Islam, where he died of Kidney complications in 2003. Without a doubt, Awongo made an indelible mark in the world. By. Majid Alemi Junior.

NGOs accused of failing northern peace plan

By Francis Kagolo

SOME of the non-government organisations operating in the north have been criticised for sabotaging the Peace, Recovery and Development Plan (PRDP).

The permanent secretary in the Prime Minister’s office, Pius Bigirimana, also lashed out at those who politicise the programme.
PRDP is a programme which integrates and harmonises initiatives committed to the rehabilitation and development of the war-affected areas in the north and north-eastern Uganda.

“Many organisations have turned the plan into a business to make money out of people’s suffering,” he said.

Bigirimana said other NGOs were using the programme to pursue political agendas, adding that the Government would not allow such mischief.

Due to the saboteurs, he said, development partners were becoming skeptical of the programme.

Bigirimana was informing stakeholders about the progress of the programme at the Refugee Law Project headquarters in Old Kampala on Wednesday.

“Last week, I received a letter from the US Congress signed by seven senators. They were complaining that the programme had done nothing in the north,” he said.
He, however, commended organisations like Plan International, World Vision and FAO on their good work, adding that he would record the programme’s achievements on video to defend it in the US.

Bagirimana dismissed allegations that the programme had been suspended and warned against duplication of services.

He cited activities like the construction of roads and the electrification of districts under the plan as ongoing activities.

“We are working with the Uganda Rural Electrification Agency to restore power from Soroti to Kaberamaido. We are also soon starting restoration of power to Oyam district and power extension to Tororo district,” he said.

Harriet Namisi, the DENIVA programme coordinator said: “It is unfortunate that the Government is turning against NGOs when peace has come back in the north. It is forgetting the role NGOs played during the war.”

David Wakikona, the state minister in-charge of northern Uganda rehabilitation, said the programme would be fully implemented in the 2009-2010 financial year

Doctors will need to pass test for contracts' renewal
Arab News

MAKKAH: The Ministry of Health will not renew any work contracts with doctors, nurses and medical technicians both in private and government sectors unless they pass a test of the Saudi Council for Health Specialties, Al-Madinah daily reported yesterday.
"The Medical and Pharmacy Licensing Department of the Health Directorate in the Makkah province has sent a memo to medical and related establishments about the decision. The department has also taken steps to prepare a database for health establishments in the province," Dr. Muhammad Al- Mehmadi, director of the department, told the newspaper.
"The council rejected 1,500 certificates of doctors, pharmacists, nurses and other medical technicians in various medical specializations because it suspected the genuineness of the documents during the past few months. The attestation of the council has been rated very high not in the Kingdom alone but internationally as well," said Dr. Hussein Al-Feraihi, secretary-general of the council. "Though the council did not have the evidence to prove that all those documents were forged, it has the right to reject a certificate if it suspects its origin or credibility."
The council detected 800 fake certificates while registering and grading their certificates for registration. The fake documents included those of doctors, pharmacists, nurses, opticians, laboratory technicians and physiotherapists, dental technicians and technicians of X-ray, sterilization, anesthesia, EEG, labor rooms and blood banks.
"However, the council has learned that some of the holders of rejected certificates are still working in their respective establishments, even after it notified the licensing department about such people," he said.
He added that the licensing department did not have sufficient number of inspectors to make field checks and stop unqualified people from working..
The council had informed the Passport Department and the Ministry of Health of the matter, he said.
He put the total number of barred medical workers in the Kingdom at 12,000. The ban is either temporary or final. The permanent ban is mostly because of the negligence in professional ethics or unacceptable qualifications including forgery. Temporary ban is for the workers who do not pass the evaluation tests, which they might pass later after attending more training programs, he said.
Meanwhile, Madinah Gov. Prince Abdul Aziz bin Majed ordered a committee to study and evaluate the courses and activities of all private medical institutes in the province. The students of
