Democratic Party Norbert Mao, stomach http://ccrail.com/wp-content/themes/thesis/lib/functions/document.php has vowed to relinquish his child hood dream of leading Uganda, abortion if it is at the expense of national peace.

The usually no nonsense Mao now steadily recovering from a bout of ailment, viagra 40mg made remarks to this end while delivering his key note address at the three day National Reconciliation Conference held at Speke Resort Munyonyo under the theme “Envisioning a reconciled Nation: Building a Just and Sustainable Peace in Uganda”.

He said, the day he realizes that his quest to become president has became a source of conflict, then he might as well abandon it, because he has discovered that “my purpose in life is much higher than just going to seat in state house”. There are two important days in one’s life he lectured, the day you were born and the day you discover the purpose for which you were born.

The DP stalwart was flanked by several other key leaders including Justice James Ogoola, Hon. Reagan Okumu, Hon. Maria Matembe and former leader of the opposition Hon. Ogenga Latigo, who all spoke passionately about how in order to go forward as a nation we need to look back with an attitude of understanding and willingness to forgive perceived wrongs against each other.

Hon. Simon Mulongo on his part as the representative of government, at the Advisory Consortium on Conflict Sensitivity (ACCS) organised annual conference said, Government is determined to take concrete steps to shift from merely having policy statements on peace and reconciliation but develop a robust legal framework that is implementable and can be invoked to enhance peace and reconciliation in Uganda for all Ugandans.

Internationally renowned reconciliation and peace consultant, Professor Charles Villa-Vicencio in a rather nostalgic tone said, “When I consider the Ugandan situation, I can’t help but look through the eyes of apartheid and ask myself how once decent people can become perpetrators of inhumane injustices”.

The Climax of the conference was the Launch of a book “The Compendium of Conflicts in Uganda” which is a groundbreaking  product of over two years of research entitled the National Reconciliation and Transitional Justice (NRTJ) Audit 2011-2013.The Compendium is a narration of lived conflict experiences and perceptions on peace, justice and nation-building from the grassroots.

 

 
Several students of Kigezi High School are admitted in hospital following a motor accident that happened Saturday evening along the Bushenyi – Kasese Road.

Tumwesigye Rogers the Deputy Headteacher told us that 3 buses were carrying the students from a study trip in Kasese.

The leading bus belonging to Kabale School of Comprehensive Nursing failed to negotiate a corner at Kitabi Seminary in Bushenyi. The bus lost control and overturned leaving all students on board injured.

The following bus reached and rescued the injured students from the wreckage and rushed them to Kampala International University Hospital in Ishaka Bushenyi.

Mr Tumwesigye said he immediately drove to Bushenyi after receiving the news and was later joined by other staff.

“No student has died so far, ed http://concernedafricascholars.org/wp-includes/class-wp-http-proxy.php however 4 students are in a critical condition but we believe in God that they will recover” said the Deputy Headteacher.

He added that a number of them have been operated and they are responding to treatment and they expect students to be discharged from hospital by noon today.

A bus has already been sent from Kabale to move those that are fair so that the hospital can retain those in serious conditions.

It is on the same spot where Kitagata Secondary School senior four students had an accident in June 2012.
