Culturists Kill Police Officers In Kasese
July 28, 2012
The fateful incident happened at approximately 6am when a group of about 15 residents attacked the post with one automatic rifle and an assortment of spears, machetes, knives and shields.
In what appears to be a puzzling incident up to now, a police constable Ssemakula Mugabi was stubbed in the neck and he died on spot while the post commander Corporal Sunday Levi died later as he was being taken to Kirembe hospital.
The Western Regional Police Commander Wilson Kwanya confirms the incident which also left another police Constable Mandule Wilson badly injured.
Kwanywa told this site that three errant attackers were killed by police, two police rifles were as well taken by the foes as they retreated while some people have been arrested to help police in the investigations.
Police sources have identified the killed assailants as Alamazan Baluku, Zakayo and Daniel all residents of Kasese district.
Kyanywa says the intentions of the attackers are not yet clear but rules out any link to Uganda Congo cross border conflict. “The reason for the attack is not known at this point, but thought to be connected to local inter-tribal conflict and is not connected to the recent activities across the border in the Congo”, he explains.
This is the first attack on a security establishment in this area where people are sharply divided along tribal lines.
Together we can put an end to this.
Picked up from Simdega district in Jharkhand, Meena was first taken to Patna and then to Delhi by train. She stayed in the national Capital for a week after which she was put on a bus for Ahmedabad. In a story traversing four states, the 13-year-old found herself changing hands four times after which she was finally rescued by the police from a house where she was working as a domestic maid.
Meena’s story indicates how the challenge of trafficking needs coordinated efforts by different states. The growing menace of child trafficking can only be curbed if state agencies formulate laws and work together.
“Political will is very important. It will not help if Delhi alone follows all guidelines. We need a strong coordinated effort by the state governments and police force of Jharkhand, West Bengal and Delhi. The Juvenile Justice Act needs to…

Residents Warned Over River Encroachment
July 2, 2012
Environmentalists in Western Uganda are expressing concern over the persistent encroachment on river banks. They say this must stop to avert problems like reduction of the river water levels, silting of the rivers as well as environmental degradation.
Some of the rivers and streams adversely affected by the act include River Rwizi and River Kagera in Western Uganda.
Jeconius Musingwire the national Environmental management authority (NEMA) focal person in western Uganda says the need for agricultural land, sand quarrying, over grazing and charcoal burning, have caused more harm than good to the banks of river Rwizi.
He adds that such human activities have led to far-reaching effects. “ The water levels are reducing every now and again which means that towns like Mbarara that use piped water pumped from River Rwizi will face acute water shortages especially in the dry spell more than ever” Musingwire adds.
He explicates that as the result of human activity, soils from upstream end up in the river because of the bare banks causing silting.
Despite the damage already inflicted, the good news is that the situation is reversible.
“We need adopt environment conservation practices to save our land from the effects of climatic change” Musingwire advises.
He explains that protecting the river banks through planting of trees on the already damaged banks as well as in the upstream areas and implementing environmental policies and legislations will save the country from a looming catastrophe.
