Monday, January 21, 2019 (PW) — The rentable lip with twisted edge that works to destroy buys fame nowadays. But ideas involved can take us high or drag us low while the interest attached adjusts the wheels toward the intended direction. Such leasable lips have owners: the agents of fame. These widespread agents are known to degrade or water down the opponents to achieve the hidden odds.

Such agents are armed with information circulated about others. They are labeled as “professional conspirators”whose source of strength is interwoven with information meant to obliterate. They are known smart and crafted with trait of professionalism.

Politicians, civilian, and society fear them because everything is believed to be at their fingertips. Avoiding them is not advisable; teaming up with them is not so healthy either, though it’s sometimes commendable during circumstantial needs. (more…)

This time, Museveni was already 10 years in Power after five-years rebellion and subsequent coupe executed by Obote’s CDFs Gen. Tito Okello against his boss, Dr. Milton Obote. Museveni continued his rebellion and seized power from Okello a year later.

We woke up on Monday as normal to school from Block Six, we followed the usual small serpentine dusty route that meanders in the refugees’ back-yard gardens to the slopes of the small streams and woods towards Block Seven – a neighboring Block.
