This was strategically done to ensure that the inmates, majority Karimojong, somehow interact with guards and share concerns.

  THREE IS A CROWD: DIANE IS UP TO NO GOOD
David and Diane have been married for years; then there is Julie, the young secretary whose axis collides with the couple’s in ways none of them saw coming. That Monday marked the end of the time Mark had given me to ‘think about’ my job, and since I already knew I was quitting, the only matter that remained was how I quit. Considering all the time I had worked for him and that he had in all fairness been a great boss, it did not seem right to simply send an email; so, I decided to go and see him in person. Knowing that early mornings were the best time to catch him, I was already at the...

  A KA DOPE GOES ONLINE
A Ka Dope is a platform for emerging musicians to showcase their craft, and it aims at elevating Ugandan talent. Due to the effects of Covid-19, gigs including music shows and concerts, among others, were banned as the country rushed to control the spread. To keep their fans happy, A Ka Dope has taken its talent search online. Organisers announced last week via their social media pages. Interested parties are required to record and upload 40-second videos of themselves singing or rapping on their social media pages, for an ‘audition’ period of three weeks, during which the videos will...

  ARCHER IS BACK AND OUT OF COMA
Archer returns today (September 16) on Hulu for an eight-episode 11th Season. The season was supposed to premiere on May 6, but delays related to Covid-19 led to a postponement. Archer is an animated sitcom that debuted in 2009. Following the exploits of a New York-based Intelligence Agency, the show was an immediate hit, attracting praise for its dysfunctional characters and politically incorrect humour. Archer took an interesting turn in the seventh season when its titular character slipped into a coma. The eighth, ninth and 10th seasons fascinated audiences because they took place in...

  GO FIND ABERCROMBIE’S A LITTLE HATRED
A Little Hatred is the first novel in the Age of Madness trilogy, which is a sequel to the First Law trilogy. I often describe First Law as “Game of Thrones, but better”. Game of Thrones is amazing, but it is also bloated. George R.R. Martin tends to kill the momentum of his narrative with plot threads and characters that ultimately don’t matter. First Law is what would happen if you trimmed Martin’s books of all their fat. But Joe Abercrombie knows how to get to the point. So, what went wrong with A little Hatred? Well, nothing, actually. This is not a book review. You can’t review...

  STAR TREK: DISCOVERY IS STROKE OF GENIUS
The biggest trailer of the month is possibly Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. But I don’t care about Dune and that won’t change until I watch the movie. Villeneuve directed Blade Runner 2049, one of the dullest movies I have ever watched in cinema; you can now understand my disinterest in his work. I would rather talk about Star Trek: Discovery Season three, whose trailer recently debuted. Season one struggled. The show’s darker, grittier stories alienated longtime fans that had grown to associate the Star Trek franchise with optimism and hope. Season two successfully reversed the mistakes of its...

  GOVT VALUER SHOULD PRIORITISE COMPENSATION FOR OIL PROJECTS
Projects in the oil and gas sector require, among other things, land for temporary and permanent infrastructure and installations. This land acquisition is achieved through Resettlement Action Plans (RAPs), which seek to specify all resettlement arrangements and measures for avoiding, minimizing or compensating losses or other negative social and environmental impacts resulting from resettlement. As is the case in other parts of the world, petroleum development involves involuntary resettlement (including the economic and/or physical displacement of people). Such involuntary displacement is...

  NORWAY'S SKI TRAIN STATION VS KAMPALA NORTHERN BYPASS PROJECT
In 2014, Uganda National Roads Authority (Unra) awarded the expansion of the Kampala Northern bypass into an all-dual-carriage road to a Portuguese company, Mota Engil. That was almost the same time Bane NOR Eiendom, a Norwegian train company awarded the Follobanen contract to widen Ski station into more than two lines and building of a shopping centre etc. A few years ago, part of Ski was an open, empty space with nothing on it. Then I woke up one morning and railway lines, heavy constructing machines where everywhere. 7-10 uninterrupted months later, a proud new train station was standing...

  DUO TRANSFORM EDUCATION SYSTEM THROUGH TEACHING LEARNERS CODING
There seems to be no end in sight to the prolonged school holiday as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. But for Cleopatra Kanyunyuzi and Cassius Musasira, they couldn’t have wished for a better opportunity to showcase the need to enhance children’s knowledge with coding skills, writes ERNEST JJINGO. Coding refers to the act of writing in code or cipher. It is a complex manouvre that involves using the programming language to get the computer to behave as desired. It is mainly through coding that computer software and smartphone apps are created. So, as the education system of Uganda went...
