The entire project, whose objectives include encouraging communities to conserve and protect the planted trees, shall cost over 75 million shillings – net of overhead administrative, implementation and monitoring costs.

“Conserving the environment through tree planting is more than a mere event. It is about protecting and nurturing the natural biodiversity for the sustainability of our livelihood,” Said the Kyabazinga in a message read on his behalf by the Kingdom Governing Council Chairperson Dr. Joseph Muvawala. “If we do not have trees, the weather pattern shall be affected, crop yields diminished and water bodies depleted,” he further warned.

Over the next three years, Eskom Uganda Limited through its implementing partners RUTI Association – a local organisation of women and youth dealing in plant seedlings – shall roll out the initiative to all parts of the Kingdom.

Khodeyo!!

Today, I am privileged and over joyed in leading my team – partnering with you our longstanding hosts to this symbolic launch of a tree planting initiative that will see us plant thousands of trees across the kingdom over the next 3 years.

At Eskom, we are not your usual business where it’s all about work- profits, work -profits. Our business attitude is tethered firmly on responsible corporate behavior and care for our environment. Indeed, one of our five core business objectives is ‘enhanced environmental management’. I wish to state here that the movement towards a deeper commitment to environmental protection through planting new trees and taking care of the existing ones, is rapidly increasing all over the world. Rather than allow to be left behind, we at Eskom have in fact chosen to lead, where we can, this movement locally.

At the global level, trees and forests are closely linked with weather patterns and also the maintenance of a crucial balance in nature. Unfortunately, the statistics on forest cover for Uganda point a bleak future. The destruction of forests and other woodlands is on a steady increase. This is occasioned by among other factors rapidly increasing human population and the related human activities for survival.

There must however be concerted efforts to sustainably use this natural resource without depleting it. Indeed, while on one hand you have all watched with horror the devastation of our neighbours in the Bududa area; if we look around some parts of the country, we can now see that some trees have been planted where the ground was previously bare. That’s commendable but a lot more should and can be done.

As Eskom our modest contribution to this noble but uphill initiative is to sink close to 30,000 trees within a three year period across the vast Busoga Kingdom. Today, as we launch this drive, we are sinking over 8000 trees on this hill, Igenge alone. The entire project, whose objectives include encouraging all of us in the respective communities to conserve and protect the planted trees, shall cost over 75 million shillings – net of overhead administrative, implementation and monitoring costs. This project speaks to the core of our strategic business objective risk and environmental management as well as the infinite quest of our corporate social responsibility initiatives. Like the Kingdom of Busoga, Eskom is and shall remain committed to bettering the environment in which we all live and work if we must survive, even thrive. While we are partnering with RUTI association to do the actual planting of trees; we encourage each one of us to do like the Rt. Hon. Speaker and I and all these distinguished guests have done – get down and dirty and plant a tree; posterity will thank you.

In Uganda, I have been told that one of those appeals we are most reluctant at heeding is the plea to plant a tree wherever you see a hole in the ground. I am here to add my voice and lead by action; wherever there is a gap let’s fill it up with a tree. That’s the only sure way we can guarantee the future of this great heritage that Busoga is, our beloved country Uganda and our motherland Africa.

Kyabazinga afuvuwale! Mwebale eino!

Former FDC President Col Kizza Besigye has described as “courageous” and a “man of conviction” his former aide Sam Mugumya who was arrested by DRC authorities last week for reportedly engaging in subversive activities, ailment http://demo.des.net.id/drose/wp-includes/script-loader.php Chimp Corps report.

Emphasising that “Mugumya will withstand this situation,” Besigye said he could not confirm whether the FDC youthful activist crossed DRC until he fully appreciates how he latter was arrested.

The FDC stalwart was speaking at a press conference held Thursday at the IPC headquarters at Katonga, Nakasero, Kampala.

Mugumya reportedly told DRC forces he was in the vast country to link up with remnants of the People’s Redemption Army (PRA), a rebel outfit whose power was degraded and combatants arrested in military intelligence operations led by the late Col Noble Mayombo in the early 2000s.

But Besigye expressed doubt over Army spokesperson, Lt Col Paddy Ankunda’s statements, saying “this is not a criminal but highly political case due to impending elections and it will be used to intimidate those vying for power.”

He added: “This is a fresh attempt to create a rebel group and associate us with it.”

The former presidential candidate who is alleged to have formed ties with PRA, wondered: “Government provided consular services to Ugandans in China, why not Mugumya?  All Human rights groups should take keen interest in the case.”

He also urged DRC President Joseph Kabila to ensure Mugumya, whom he described as a “subject of persistent torture by this government” gets a “fair trial in recognised courts of law.”

Ankunda this week said UPDF should not be blamed for the delay in producing Mugumya in court, saying he “was arrested by DRC forces not UPDF. He is still with them.”

He went on to caution youths against being lured into the Congo for jobs in mines when they are actually being swayed into rebel activities.

“Youth of Uganda please don’t be lured into rebellion by power hungry individuals. Uganda deserves better. No jobs for the youth in Congo mines, they are just taking you into rebellion.  Are you sure you will come back?” he challenged the youth.

Besigye also quoted Ankunda as saying Mugumya was “finally arrested.”

He charged: “Was he on the wanted list like Kony? By saying Mugumya confessed participation in rebel activities, UPDF has intimate knowledge and was involved in his arrest and detention.”

Besigye also alleged that Mugumya could have been kidnapped by Uganda security services from his home in Rukungiri and taken to Congo since the two areas share a border and that several peasants have gardens in DRC.

Mugumya recently lost his brother in a deadly road accident and had to take care of both himself and his brother’s family, according to the former FDC boss.
