The body of Hussein Ssembatya leaves for Uganda on Thursday this week and arrives in Entebe on Friday morning at around 8.00 East African time. Speaking to KSB, Margarette, a member of the Hussein Funeral Committee said that a memorial for Hussein will be organized by the Committee after the body is flown to Uganda. She disclosed that more than 50,000 kr was raised during the funds drive and thanked everybody who attended.
Dr. Jose Chameleon, the re-knowned East African Superstar, will be in Stockholm next month as part of celebrations to commemorate the 47th Uganda Independence day. The show will also feature DJ Michael along with Phina Mugerwa who is set to send the crowd crazy.
The Uganda independence day celebration will take place on Friday October 9th 2009 Live at Broma Salen at Gustavslundsvägen 168 (Tube Alvik). Before then, Dr Chameleon will be playing at Mama Africa (H62 at Mariatorget) on 8th October and on 10th October, the Superstar will hit the stage at Club Nile (Callister Bar) which is the latest hot African music spot to open in Stockholm. Club Nile is located at Sergels Torg in T-Centralen.
Definitely, this is a “No miss” three day entertainment series and the people to thank are none other than “Mama Africa”” in close conjunction with “Self Management” who have been working “overtime” to ensure that the East African community is well entertained, not just at the disco level but also at the “Live Artistic” level with Dr. Chameleon on stage this time around.
If you are keen on attending the show on the 9th, it is important to note that you can get a ticket for 250 kr with advance booking. It will be more expensive to book at the gate because it will cost 350 kr (100 kr more) so you have been warned! Tickets are available at Taj Mahal, Mariatorgiet and Calister Bar. Further information can be obtained through: 0762145100; 0703502787 and 0762145100.
Kikuyus for change is quite a brilliant idea. But what change are you preachng if your title already spells out tribalism? The title alone blocks other tribes from attending or contributing to your agenda.
Yeas, Kikuyus have been called this and that. They have been accused of being what they aren’t and. Converging at a meeting just as Kikuyus won’t alter a anything. Infact, you will soon be accused of plotting fishy agendas.
Why didnt you give the “thought’ a universal title? Like, what Martin suggested – Kenyas for change? That way, I will feel fear-free to attend with my Luo, Kalenjin, Taita, name them friends. They need to participate and know that, Kikuyus are, infact, not thieves, that indeed all Kikuyus are not Mungiki and that some Kikuyus are as poor as church mice.
After progressing, you could then tour Kikuyu villages. Here they will witness with awe, grass thatched houses. How some Kkuyus suffer and die from jigger infections. This would be a real true change movement. Then and only then will you create change.
