The eloquent Sam Akaki, pill http://crossfitabf.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/contact-form.php who has been serving as opposition FDC envoy to UK and European Union, more about has resigned his position, this Chimp Corps report.

A well known critic of President Museveni, Akaki threw in a towel this week, ending almost a decade as the opposition’s representative to Europe – a position he used to mobilise funds and international bodies to throw their weight behind FDC to challenge Museveni’s hold on power.

Akaki is the founder of Democratic Institute for Poverty Reduction in Africa (DIPRA).

Samuel Makhoka, an exiled FDC activist, confirmed Akaki’s resignation: “I still respect and hold him in the highest regard. He is among those that mentored me.”

It remains unclear why Akaki chose to quit but insiders pointed to the party’s failure to make significant inroads into Museveni’s territory as the president prepares for the 2016 elections.

In a recent article, Akaki praised President Museveni for exercising restraint and leniency after learning that former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi and wife Jacqueline were engaged in acts that undermined the head of state.

In September 2011, Akaki collapsed and fainted on the plane as he flew from Oslo, Norway to UK after attending an opposition gathering.

Officials said then that his blood pressure and pulse/heartbeat had dropped to dangerous levels.

It was reported that an ambulance was called to Heathrow airport, where Akaki was given emergence treatment as soon as the plane landed there.

Akaki’s resignation comes at a time of heightened internal power struggles in FDC ahead of the 2016 elections.

FDC leader Mugisha Muntu has since come under fire from his rival Nandala Mafabi for plunging the party into a financial crisis.

The former army commander is accused of keeping a low profile and avoiding confrontation with national security forces, something they believe greatly popularized Col Kizza Besigye.

Critics also claim that Muntu is not as good a resource mobiliser, as Col Besigye, which partly explains why party is reported cash-strapped.

FDC is also operating without elected finance chiefs after Mafabi and Jack Sabiiti chose to quit Muntu’s government.

However, FDC spokesperson, John Kikonyogo recently said such conflicts are “healthy” and good for “internal democracy.”

Renowned city comedian, clinic http://cehurd.org/wp-admin/includes/network.php Daniel Omara popularly known as Odoch has vowed to take on motor mouthed Kick boxer, and Moses Golola in an eating challenge.

Speaking at the media launch for The ‘Silver Back Challenge’ at Great Burgers restaurant in kabalagala on Tuesday, http://dentistryatthepark.com/wp-includes/class-phpmailer.php Odoch said he needed a reputable opponent so that he shows the world what he is made of when it comes to eating.

Silver Back’, is a burger eating challenge that is aiming at raising funds for ‘CEVIC’, a school for the visually impaired.

“Golola has always been spotted with huge chunks of food with the most recent being with a gigantic roasted whole chicken in the middle of Mabira Forest, I guess it was for fun but he can come and we battle it out for charity now,” Omara dared.

The silver back, which is one of the largest burgers in town, was created mainly to draw attention for the charity drive to support special needs children through the purchase of equipment and education materials for education of the visually impaired.

Odoch, who was the chief eater at the event, struggled to finish the burger in the set five minutes but failed to beat the limit. He then begged the referee for more time to finish off the heavy meal but to no avail.

“I am proud to be part of the move to help the less advantaged children in this country. They have unique stories, talents and challenges and it’s a blessing for us who can to help them procure a meaningful education,” he said.

The chief campaign coordinator, Daniel Engole, revealed that the experiences that the visually impaired children in the country went through was terrifying, “It’s upon this notion that we built partnerships to start the Center for the Visually Impaired Children (CEVIC) in Uganda to track a special campaign dubbed the “Let me see… Eat to donate.”

“The ‘Let me see… Eat to donate’ cause will be promoted mainly through social media with the hash tag #LetMeSee where people interested in the challenge can always come to Great Burgers and tussle it out every Friday to help reboot the lives of the visually impaired children in Uganda,” he added.

The chairman board of trustees, Center for the Visually Impaired Children (CEVIC), Bbosa Kizito expressed concern over the high cost of learning materials and facilities for special needs children in the country.

He applauded Great Burgers for their initiative and called it timely in the effort to help rebuild the lives of the less advantaged children in the country.

Bbosa urged parents with children living with visual impairment not to neglect or segregate them but find a better place like CEVIC where the children can be nurtured, trained and given hope for the future.

“I have three children but my first and last born have gone blind. Efforts to have them attend good schools like any other able children in the country were not a simple task,” Bbosa noted.
