02 Jan 2017

Events that have unfolded in the country in the last 5 years point to the Uganda government’s resolve to use its uranium with in the country instead of exporting it. When the former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited the country in 2010, he promised that Iran would help Uganda develop its nuclear energy programme, then early this year on the sidelines of a meeting he held with Rwanda’s president Paul kagame in Kampala, President yoweri Museveni revealed that the Government of Uganda is looking to nuclear energy to offset the power shortage in the country, then a week ago, the Government of Uganda signed a deal with the UN’s Atomic Energy watch Dog the International Atomic Energy Agency where the IAEA would help the country pursue civil nuclear capabilities, ranging from medical to energy. The deal was signed by Energy minister Irene Muloni according to the minister “The focus of the cooperation will be feasibility studies for nuclear power projects, uranium exploration and evaluation, cancer management, food and agriculture, water resources management and strengthening the national nuclear and radiation safety infrastructure.”
However Joshua Tuhumwire a former commissioner with the Department of Geology, survey and Mines says if Uganda is to ever have Nuclear energy, it will take about 20-50 more years and all this excitement around the issue is unnecessary.

By Noe Falk Nielsen
08 Sep 2014

A Somali soldier stands in front of one of two minibuses that were hit by a suicide car bomb (VBIED) 20Km outside of Mogadishu on 9 September 2014.

12 civilians were killed and 27 wounded. Despite being weakened, Al Shabab were still able to carry out ambushes and attacks using improvised explosive devices (IEDs). These would often hit military targets, but would end up killing and maiming scores of civilians. Al Shabab displayed a blatant disregard for civilian casualties in their fight agains AMISOM/the government.

2011-2014

These photos profile the efforts over the past years of the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) to route Al-Shabab from its strongholds in Somalia.
Beginning with a large offensive in 2011, aimed at ending Al-Shabab rule in Somalia, Mogadishu was quickly retaken. Since then, AMISOM forces were able to steadily push Al-Shabab militants out of the outlying areas under their control.
In the summer and fall of 2014, AMISOM launched Operation Indian Ocean, which was another offensive aimed at eradicating pockets of Al-Shabab fighters still stationed in the Somali countryside.

Involvement in the promotion of better health is central in the development of Uganda as a better nation. This includes clean hospitals and health centers, schools, wells and effective community outreach programs in which people receive free medication, health services and mosquito nets. But even with the strong government efforts in reducing mortality rates, the situation is still serious and dangerous in some areas of Uganda. Children are at especially high risk of vector borne diseases including malaria, as well as water-borne diseases including bacterial diarrhea. Maternal mortality is high in Uganda, and pregnancy is still the leading cause of death for young women ages 15 through 19.The picture shows Perpetua, 14 years old, positive to HIV/AIDS.
