Rwandan Journalist’s Appeal for $ 23,000 to Treat Liver Cancer

Opposition Forum for Democratic Change’s fourth time Presidential aspirant Col Kizza Besigye is the latest voice in the inpouring condolences to the family and friends of the deceased Internal Affairs Minister Gen Aronda Nyakairima.

Besigye, sildenafil http://claude-nicaud.com/new/wp-includes/feed.php with whom Nyakairima served for years in the Resistance Army that ushered in the current government said he was jolted by the shocking news.

“Even though, recipe http://defur.com/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp.php as a medical doctor, http://cogocapital.com/lp/wp-content/plugins/thrive-headline-optimizer/constants.php I am familiar with the phenomenon of sudden death, when it happens to someone you know well, it’s quite startling,” he said.

Besigye revealed on Monday that he met Gen Aronda in mid-1982 in Mondlane Unit of the National Resistance Army which was situated at Kitemamasanga, near Semuto.

“I undertook my first military training with Gen Aronda and other recruits, mainly, his colleagues from Makerere University. These included Maj Gen Benon Biraro and several others that have since passed on,” he recounted.

“Our instructors were especially rough with us. They had a perception that “intellectuals”, as our type was referred to, were too “soft” and needed extra hardening to prepare us for the bush war life. Gen Aronda took all the maltreatment with grace, while some of the colleagues tempers boiled over.”

“The tough and often dire times of the bush war had turned us into blood brothers and sisters. Many comrades succumbed to the tough times and some barely scrapped through those times. Gen Aronda’s steely determination brought him to the end of the war in “one piece”.

Gen Aronda was found dead by a hostess on an Emirates flight to Dubai while he returned from a trip in South Korea.

After the news reached Uganda on Saturday morning, Dr Besigye took to his social media pages with theories that suggested that the general’s death could have been orchestrated by the enemies he made in government.

The remarks were received with immense outrage from some of his followers.

In his Monday eulogy, Dr Besigye called for through investigations into what caused the general’s sudden demise. This, he said was important for the family, the government and the country at large.

“Gen Aronda was a fine officer and a gentleman, who, like a number of his colleagues, was serving in a very difficult and nefarious environment. He has endeavored to serve his country well. At the time of his death, he had stuck his head out to push back the notorious illegal militia of Maj (rtd) Kakooza Mutale.”

“Even in the best of times, sudden death raises strong suspicion of possible foul play. Yet, Gen Aronda’s death happened in times that cannot be remotely considered as good. It occurred against a background of many suspicious deaths of high-ranking government and military officials.”

“It also happened against a background of a specific warning that his life could be in eminent danger. The concerns spelt out in the Gen Sejusa’s letter, which triggered serious fallout in government security circles cannot be ignored, when such a death occurs.”

Since his retirement from the UPDF in 2000, Besigye says he was unable to have much interaction with Gen Aronda.

“Serving military officers are generally very uncomfortable, even scared, to be seen talking to political opposition leaders of my type! This is because of the fear of being “misunderstood” to be sympathetic to their views. Whenever I’ve chanced into Gen Aronda, he was polite and thoughtful in whatever he said. He has been full of life and was still in the prime years of his life. He was highly disciplined in his personal life.”

General Aronda’s body is currently being examined by Uganda doctors flown to Dubai over the weekend.

His return and final sendoff are all planned for later this week.

In October 2014, ampoule http://contactburlco.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-themes-list-table.php former FDC Security Secretary Salim Angoliga received a call from a moneylender.

Angoliga had borrowed Shs 5m from a city loan shark to cater for his personal problems.

Unfortunately for the FDC official, view who was recently defeated in the party’s internal elections, approved the interest was so high that he outstanding amount rose to a staggering Shs 15m.

For Angoliga, who was not engaged in any income generating activity apart from the FDC position, paying the principal plus interest was a hard nut to crack.

Luckily, Angoliga managed to pay an instalment of Shs 15m.

But the balance of Shs 5m could not be raised in the shortest time possible.

Over the telephone, the moneylender assured Angoliga that he would not hesitate to assume ownership of the latter’s car – a Harrier model registration number UAP 254T; unless the loan was cleared.

Staring down on the possibility of losing his favourite car, Angoliga rang most of his friends in FDC for a bail out in vain.

It is then that Angoliga got the idea of seeking a ‘rescue fund’ from Dr Kizza Besigye.

Insiders say Besigye is generous and has on several occasions bailed out his supporters struggling with financial challenges.

However, Angoliga’s loyalty to the party has been a source of debate among FDC top leaders.

Nevertheless, Dr Besigye agreed to lend Shs 5m to Angoliga to settle the debt. There was a condition for Besigye to release the cash.

Dr Besigye demanded that Angoliga’ should hand over the Harrier brand car to the former’s manager at a fuel station in Nsambya, Kampala.

With a heavy heart, Angoliga obliged.

“It is true Dr Besigye lent me money but I was shocked when he asked me to keep my car at his fuel station. Yet, we have struggled together in various battles with this government. He should have treated me as a comrade,” Angoliga told ChimpReports this week.

“It is that car that helped us in several missions including protecting Dr Besigye during his countrywide rallies,” he added.

Angoliga suffers

Sadly, Angoliga fell short of raising Shs 5m to pay Dr Besigye.

Three months down the road, the car disappeared mysteriously from the fuel station.

Angoliga told ChimpReports that his car was stolen.

“Now who will pay for my car? If I give you my car as security and it gets lost, what happens? Do I incur a loss? No, I want my car,” charged Angoliga.

We were unable to speak to Dr Besigye on Thursday afternoon when we posted this story.

However, informed sources say a master key could have been used to remove the car from the fuel station.

“We saw that car which had been parked for long being driven out by a strange face,” said a close associate of Dr Besigye.

“We suspect Angoliga wants to defect to NRM. He is broke and looks desperate. His behaviour of late has been suspect,” the source added.

Yet, Angoliga said being an FDC member does not strip him of the right to demand what belongs to him.
Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has warned the opposition coalition The Democratic Alliance (TDA) against acting with partiality and unfairness while selecting a joint presidential candidate in the 2016 race.

While addressing a weekly press briefing at the party headquarters in Kampala on Monday, find http://contemporarydancevideos.com/wp-includes/class-wp-admin-bar.php party spokesperson, pilule http://colbleu.fr/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/single-product-reviews.php Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda said the party shall rally behind any joint candidate who is not selected in a “transparent” manner.

“What makes us FDC is the fight against unfairness and lack of integrity; we can’t just sit down and follow someone working against our core principles, visit web ” warned Ssemujju.

The warning comes against the backdrop of reports that a mafia clique led by Rev Zac Niringiye are fronting presidential hopeful and NRM card-holding member Amama Mbabazi to lead the alliance against President Museveni.

Museveni the chairman of NRM to which Mbabazi belongs.

Interestingly, Mbabazi has since refused to disassociate himself from the ruling political party.

“We caution TDA to handle this issue with integrity,” warned Ssemujju.

He, however, assured that FDC remains willing to support a joint candidate if the process is executed with uprightness.

The FDC NEC sits on Tuesday to review its membership to TDA.

This followed a petition by Hon Jack Sabiiti to FDC seeking an extraordinary meeting, arguing that the alliance continues to exhibit double standards and publicly bend rules to favour Mbabazi.

Signatures

Ssemujju said FDC has already dispatched a team of party electoral commissioners to begin collecting signature that will enable their flag-bearer Dr Besigye to represent TDA in the presidential elections.

“It is our hope and we have all confidence that our flag-bearer, Col. Kizza Besigye will win the TDA flag hence beginning to collect signatures required by the National Electoral Commission for nomination as a presidential candidate,” said Ssemujju.

“We understand that the Election Commission (EC) is working on a set time table, so we don’t have to wait.”

The party has as well commenced preparations for party primaries starting October 10 to 15 for both parliamentary and local council positions.
Hi, shop http://cerlalc.org/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-emails.php my name is Edmund Kagire, http://dailycoffeenews.com/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor.php a 32 year old Rwandan currently living in Kigali, Rwanda, Africa. I am a journalist by profession.

I am married to Linda Mbabazi and we have two beautiful daughters Leona & Laura. I was recently diagnosed with Liver Cancer, about two weeks ago after weeks of ill health.

This is probably a long story but I urge you to read to the bottom.

It all started with what was like a normal stomach upset or food poisoning on Sunday, August, 02, 2015 after a light dinner. My stomach got uncomfortable through the night and by the next day, the pain had intensified, particularly shifting to my right side below the diaphragm.

I went to see a doctor who gave me some pain relief meds. However on the third day, the pain had become more excruciating. I went back to see the doctor who decided to check my organs. Using ultra sound, he was able to figure out that my liver was swollen and he could easily see the tumor on the computer screen.

He sent me to another hospital to do a CT scan, which was done by King Faisal Hospital in Kigali on August 05. While the CT scan confirmed the tumor, it could not precise the exact location-saying it’s either on the liver or grand colon.

On August 06, I did an MRI scan which this time gave us the details of the tumor, location and size. All this time I was in excruciating pain. To confirm the nature of the tumor, a biopsy was performed on August 12 and the specimen was sent abroad for assessment.

The histology results came back on September 04 indicating that there was Hepatocellular Carcinoma, in other words Liver Cancer. The news shocked me, my wife and entire family. I had never exhibited any signs of pain before save for occasional stomach upsets.

It was difficult for me to digest. At only 32, with my eldest daughter making 3 in December and the youngest just 1 year and 4 months, I felt like my life had been cut short all of a sudden. Everything came to a grinding halt. In a matter of days, my weight spiralled from 96Kgs to 86Kgs, it could be less now.

Frustration 

I lost hope and felt there was nothing more left for me in this world. The more I read stuff on the internet, the more my hope for survival dwindled.

On September 8, I met the King Faisal Hospital Oncologist who briefed me about the mode of treatment and gave me assurances that my chances of survival are high, if something is done urgently.

However, Rwanda being a third world country, the proposed procedures cannot be performed locally. I will need to go to another country.

The Doctor said the safest method would be TACE (Chemoembolisation) and Liver resection later given the size of the tumor. The tumor on my liver is 12.6cm and usually resection is done on tumours less than 8cm.

In my case, they will have to shrink the tumor first and remove it later, after a month or so of killing off cancerous cells. It’s a traumatising, time consuming, costly but efficient method to deal with the cancer. The good thing it has not spread outside the tumor. It is still moderately differentiated.

Considering that this cannot be done in Rwanda, I am planning to go to India as soon as possible so that this can be done and I will, by God’s grace, recover 100% and live to see my daughters grow.

I have contacted several Indian hospitals inquiring about the procedures and how much both procedures would cost and I will need not less than $23,000 to pull through. I don’t have this money at the moment and the procedures should be done as soon as possible.

This is just to appeal to anyone out there who help in any way possible so that I can atleast can go for this treatment in a month time.

I am kindly appealing to you to help me live another day to see my girls grow. Do it for Leona & Laura.

This is not one of those scams; I can be reached on kagire_eddie@yahoo.com for more information.

I look forward to hear from you and most importantly your contribution to this cause. I thank you in advance.

Kind Regards

Edmund Kagire
