Rwanda’s top musicians are promoting better nutrition and health through a catchy new music video

Controversial presidential spokesperson, viagra 100mg http://continentalagra.com/wp-admin/includes/list-table.php Tamale Mirundi has denied reports of branding embattled singer Desire Luzinda an HIV/AIDS victim.

This followed a video posted on the internet in which Mirundi is heard saying Luzinda’s men slept with her without protection.

In the video, this Mirundi is heard saying: “What did you expect from Luzinda? You see three men are claiming her baby, view which mean in this era of HIV/AIDS none of them used a condom. They had her. They slept with her.”

The comments sparked off fury from feminists who accused Mirundi of victimising Luzinda who is still in shock over her leaked nude photographs.

Mirundi on Monday said he did not “detect early the statement attributed to me about Luzinda which is circulating on internet.”

He added: “I have not interacted with most of Ugandan musicians for I don’t attend their shows, since I use most of my time for family and work issues.

Observers say Mirundi should simply apologise for his reckless remarks as recorded in the video.

He is known for viciously attacking President Museveni’s opponents on radio stations.

Mirundi at one time struggled to defend his defamatory assertions about an engineer with Ministry of Works – whom he accused of corruption.

“I have contacted the person who interviewed the person that interviewed me on Friday when the video was released. He has, vehemently denied to have been the author of that statement. I have directed him to clarify on it the recorded statement,” said Mirundi in reference to comments about Luzinda.

“He says the statement did not originate from himself. What he has is completely different. Furthermore, I record whatever I say hence keeping records,” he concluded.

Rwanda’s top musicians are promoting better nutrition and health through a catchy new music video (Eat Healthy Beans) that was released on Monday.

The song extols the nutritional benefits of new high-iron beans that are now available in Rwanda, prescription http://dbkschool.net/wp-includes/class-wp-feed-cache.php Democratic Republic of Congo, information pills and Uganda.

Almost 40 percent of children in Rwanda do not get enough iron in their diets.

In severe cases, search this can lower their IQs and learning capacity, resistance to disease, and energy levels.  Beans are a traditional staple food and eaten every day.

These new iron beans contain 15 percent more iron than ordinary beans, and can provide women and children with almost half their daily iron needs. They also yield twice the harvest of ordinary beans, increasing incomes for farmers.

More than 700,000 Rwandan farmers are growing and eating these nutritious beans, first released by the Rwandan Government in 2011.

The campaign has taken musicians King James, Miss Jojo, Riderman, Tom Close, and Urban Boyzon a series of road shows across the country where they have performed live for more than 30,000 people

“We’ve had tremendous success so far in getting these beans out, but we wanted to reach a much wider audience across the country,” said Lister Katsvairo, who heads the Rwanda Office of HarvestPlus,  a global program to improve nutrition.

“These iron beans are now making their way into urban markets, so we are launching a campaign to increase consumer awareness. We worked with Rwanda’s top musicians, who cater to all musical tastes including Afro-pop, rap and R&B. Who better to spread this message of how beans can improve nutrition and health?”.

The campaign has taken musicians King James, Miss Jojo, Riderman, Tom Close, and Urban Boyzon a series of road shows across the country where they have performed live for more than 30,000 people.  The road shows included exhibitions and sales of iron bean seeds.

“We are bringing good news for all Rwandans that will change their lives once they start listening to the song, because it raises their knowledge about the benefits of growing and eating these high-iron beans. We hope that will change the lives of a lot of people in Rwanda,” said King James, an R&B artist.

“This was a chance   for us to  teach  people how to stay healthy by eating what is necessary for their bodies—we came together to make sure that we say goodbye to malnutrition,”  said Rwandan rapper Riderman.

Rwanda was the first country in Africa to officially launch iron beans developed through conventional breeding.

HarvestPlus works with many partners to deploy iron beans, including the Rwanda Agriculture Board with whom they co-produced this video. The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) is also partner in developing more varieties of beans even richer in iron.

Iron beans are now also being distributed to several hundred thousand farmers in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda.
