Comedy Store resurrects The 400 Lounge pride

Ever since Comedy Store made The 400 Bar and Lounge their new home every Thursday evening, night life fun is back to the Bukoto based bar.  The 400 is every Thursdays filled with comedy lovers to watch their favourite comedians hosted by Alex Muhangi do their thing. After the comedy show, revellers descend into the main 400 bar lounge, a thing that has put life back into the bar. In The 400 is now the place to be every Thursday and it is surely giving its rival Diners a run for their money.

“Thanks to everyone who was part of our second show at The 400 last evening. We appreciate the support and for choosing to spend your Thursdays hanging with us. It was a great episode. The punchlines and entertainment came in handy.

Add to that a surprise performance from Jajja w’abayimbi a.k.a Ragga Dee and King Michael, and you get worthwhile show. Thanks Dee for endorsing the show.

The show featured comics; Mariachi, Amooti, The Talkers, Dolibondo, MC Kalevu and renowned dancer Ibra Buwembo together with his crew. Those guys can dance!!

Geo Steady then crowned the night and my oh my! Ladies love this guy. He hadn’t set his foot on stage but he found a chic waiting to wrap him in a 3 minute long hug. How did I not choose being a musician as a career? Y’all be there having our women crush on you and all we do is pay so that they come watch u perform? This is gross injustice.

Lydia Jazmine slayed to the stage too, Isaac Rucci, Bigsize Bebecool….. it was Star studded.

Anyway, thanks to the Comedy Store team, service providers, The 400 and All our Sponsors Jameson, Galaxy Fm, Masters Music, iFind, NTV and Money Gram for making the show possible.

Comedian Mariachi cracks ribs at UBL

It was all fun and laughter at Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) on Friday as comedian Mariachi cracked the ribs of UBL staff.

The brewery and its spirits plant, International distillers Uganda (IDU) were celebrating 5 & 9 years of No Lost Time Accidents respectively.  This means that for a decade, no employee had an accident that necessitated them to miss a day of work.

Mariachi thrilled the staff with his jokes on habits of broke girls in bars and tribal jokes. From Batoro, Bakiga, Baganda, Bateso, he went on about their habits.

At the event, the most outstanding employees who have upheld health and safety standards at the Brewery were recognized and rewarded. Over 20 employees who maintain safety principles at work receive awards. The award categories included Safety ambassadors of the Month, highest SIRC closure per section, most compliant contractor employees among others.

The event was a culmination of the UBL Safety week dubbed, “Executing Safely Every day.” The week long activities included Evacuation Drills at the UBL site, Defensive Driving awareness session, Fitness sessions, health screening, audiometry and ergonomic sessions as well as nutrition sessions.

Speaking during the award ceremony at the brewery in Luzira, Mark Ocitti the Managing Director UBL said, “It is not just the safety measures that we as a company put in place that make us such a great story. It is the individual efforts that each of you puts into implementing these measures that makes it so rewarding at the end of it all.”

Ang3lina quashes ‘Go Down’ remix

UK based Ugandan singer Angela Nabuufu popularly known by her stage name Ang3lina has quashed the remix of her song Go Down saying it’s not official. While posting her wall, the Ghetto Lovers singer said she hasn’t officially done a remix for her Go Down song.

“Some gentle man called Skata came to me that we do a remix for the song but I told him that I never wanted to do a remix, he defied, went on and did a remix, I call upon my fans to ignore it because it is illegal,” Ang3lina said.

Ang3lina

“It’s so sad that we live in a world where people don’t value people’s hard work. I just want to publicly announce my dis-involvement in any Go down remixes. I HAVENT officially done a Remix for my song go down so I want you my fans to be the first to know. If you hear any remix with a gentle man called: Skata who did approach me for a remix a few months ago but I kindly expressed to him that I didn’t want to remix the song, Instead today has decided to upload a remix claiming that he is giving me “more exposure” . Ang3lina has no official remix for Go down so don’t be fooled by this project. Don’t get it twisted I think everyone has the right to do covers to people’s songs, but if you approach an artist for a project on their song and they kindly tell you that they don’t want the song remixed and you go ahead and still upload my work on your channel for profit gains, this is just wrong. We are definitely taking action! Have a blessed Sunday y’all. Oh and meanwhile, OH NA NA VIDEO IS COMING OUT NEXT MONTH!!  Stay blessed ghetto lovers,” Ang3lina posted.

A frank memo to Bobi Wine supporters

By Andrew M. Mwenda

Since I posted my criticism of your hero, Bobi Wine, you have been hurling insults and abuses at me.

You have devoted all your emotional energy for an entire week in a vain effort to respond to me. It is clear the sting of my post was deeply felt.

You are angry, not because you think I am wrong, but because my truths about your hero is very painful to bear. That is why I haven’t read anything that really answers the issues I raised.

I care only in passing what you think of me in large part because most of it is fiction. I am not looking for your votes.

I write what I believe. If you don’t like what I write, just quit this page. But of course you will stay because you know multitudes of Ugandans follow me and trust what I say. Otherwise you would not be responding to me.

Andrew M. Mwenda

Very few of you responded with the most rudimentary arguments to the issues I raised against Bobi Wine or the facts I adduce against his empty political slogans.

I only criticized his lack of historic and contemporary facts. Criticism of his person was only incidental. Your responses proved more that Bobi Wine and you his supporters reflect the crisis of Uganda not a solution to its challenges.

One of his admirers, a one Henry Mutebi, wrote a long dissertation of 2,257 words to reply to my post of only 542 words.

He devoted his considerable intellectual talent in dissecting my personality, even claiming I am mentally ill and need psychotherapy. Perhaps I am. I will check at Butabika.

I read his piece to the end.

In spite of it being entirely an attack on my character, he sounded intelligent.

What a waste of brains! Like most of my critics, and typical of Uganda’s opposition “intellectuals,” he did not contest a single argument I made or debunk a single fact I adduced against his hero, Bobi Wine. Instead he made my character the centerpiece of his letter.

Bobi Wine

Let me address myself to my relationship with President Yoweri Museveni.

I deal with him, when necessary, often. I have found him, in spite of all his faults, a much more liberal, tolerant and open-minded person than you his opponents.

I only go to see him when there is an issue I consider of serious national concern. And I go with well-researched facts.

And to his credit, each time I have gone seeking a particular decision, Museveni has always listened carefully to the facts I present to him and he has always accepted my recommendations.

Where he has disagreed with a particular recommendation, he has explained to me the basis of his disagreement and in most cases I have always found his counter argument convincing.

If there is any bribe he has given me therefore, it is this expression of maturity in leadership. Hence unlike his opponents who rely on rumors and hallucinations to inform their opinions on public policy, Museveni is scientific.

That is why he is president and they are activists and singers.

I admit I find most public debate in Uganda emotional and ill informed. This is a statement of fact not a moral judgment.

People have a right to their ignorance and to express their frustrations emotionally. I don’t blame them even though I despise it.

Secondly most Ugandan elites I encounter online are lazy, intellectually dull, always thinking within the box and taking no lessons from history.

Many feel the sting of my attitude and mistake my irreverence for arrogance. I have no apologies for this.

In an ideal world, I would like to see Uganda develop a serious opposition that can challenge Museveni’s hold on power.

The problem is that most of those who pose as the alternative are worse – uncouth, intolerant, anti-democratic, uninformed and angry. And I know most of you will mistake “most” for “all.” The opposition lack alternative ideas and believe their anger is sufficient to cause change.

Look here friends. You are angry and I share many of your frustrations. But anger does not make history. Power does.

And power may be supplemented with anger, but it relies on much more fundamental realities – organization, strategy, social networking etc. Only organisation and strategy can convert anger into purposeful political action.

Otherwise anger leads to mob action. Mobs don’t get things done. They destroy things. If you removed Museveni as a mob, Uganda would go the way of Somalia.

None of you wants (or needs) that. You and your cult leaders need to learn this lesson. You may hate me for telling you this basic truth. I don’t like being hated. However, if it is the price I have to pay, I am will willingly do so.

You want power. But your cult leaders don’t understand its dynamics. Power is not something you find and just pick and take.

Power (especially Museveni’s power that you want to wrestle from him) is cultivated, accumulated, harnessed and consolidated.

To take it from him, you have to evolve superior organization and strategy, better social networks and a broader vision for our country than simply pointing at his weaknesses and mistakes, real and perceived.

Incidentally I think you constitute a majority. But you are deluded to believe you have ever won a presidential election.

I agree Museveni’s system fiddles with votes in some areas. But this is because they are strong and better organized.

And such fiddling is not the reason you lose. He would win without it. You are not organized to turn your numbers into an effective political force. And the trick of Museveni’s victories is simple: look at voter turnout.

In 2011, Museveni got 5.4m votes (68%) and voter turnout was 58%. That translates to about 38% of registered voters. So 62% of Ugandans, a huge majority, didn’t vote for him.

Besigye got 2m votes (26%). But he has never asked himself why 42% of Ugandans, more than those who voted Museveni, did not vote. Instead he has deluded himself into the belief that he won and his votes were stolen. This is tragic.

I thought 2016 results would teach him something. Alas they didn’t.

Last year, Museveni got nearly 6m votes (an increase of only 500,000 or 8% growth). Controlling for the increase in registered voters, Museveni got no growth at all.

He declined by 8.2%. Besigye got 3.5m votes (an increase of 1.5m votes or growth of 75% in absolute votes). Besigye’s growth was largely, if not entirely, because of a 10% increase in voter turnout from 58% in 2011 to 68%.

All these voters showed up not because of improved FDC organization but greater passion to get rid of Museveni.

You need to supplement passion with organization and the results will be bountiful. But you are too angry and emotional to listen.

The facts are obvious. If more of you showed up to vote, you have a chance at winning. But to get so many of your potential supporters to the polling booth requires organization, something your cult leaders ignore and that you don’t understand.

The fact that you and your cult leader cannot see this simple fact is certainly tragic for your cause but obviously makes Museveni a very happy man. You are not the enemy he hates. You are the enemy he loves and enjoys to have.

Right now you are under organized, disorganized or unorganized. You can act, but only as a mob.

As I have already pointed out above, mobs don’t get things done. They destroy things. Majorities don’t rule. Well-organized minorities do.

To convert your numbers into an effective political force, you need two things: organization and strategy. Unfortunately your leaders lack both. Museveni is not in power by accident.

So your Bobi Wine and his rants against Museveni can give you psychological comfort that someone cares and is fighting for your interests.

It is also possible he is well intentioned. I know you will ignore the fact that he is ignorant, emotional and lacking in an alternative vision for our country and strategy to get rid of Museveni.

So you will choose psychological comfort over painful truths. But if I have to die for telling you this painful truth, it will be a happy death.
