Shamir Prepares for his African TourShamir Prepares for his African Tour
This is a public letter to all those who know or associate with Kimera Sengendo, AKA Shamir. If you have recently seen this man driving in Kampala in an Escalade or Mercedes, please know that this man has no right to be in these vehicles at all. He would like people to think he has acquired these vehicles through the success of his music. He would like people to see him as a rich man, who has now returned to Africa from the USA as a star. YET ALL OF THIS IS NOTHING BUT A LIE!

Those who saw him flop at Club Silk (April 29th) can judge for themselves his true talent and abilities. The music of Shamir preaches love and harmony between people. But if one judges the man by his actions, one finds a thieving, back-stabbing desperate hypocrite. The truth is that Shamir has betrayed a wonderful family that supported him and treated him like one of their own. The truth is that Shamir has been struggling with a mediocre music career for years. The truth is that he would have nothing without the generosity of those who have believed in him.

Because these good people trusted him, they entered sincerely into a business deal to sell these cars. They made themselves financially vulnerable to him and in return he has taken advantage of them. One of these family members has been stranded in Kampala for over 40 days now trying to recover what is theirs. This man has stolen the life savings of a hard-working and generous family that only ever treated him with kindness and love. Shamir? The name says: SHAM! Shamir? The name says: SHAME!

Book Review - Success is Around the Corner Written by H. E. Boney M. KatatumbaBook Review - Success is Around the Corner Written by H. E. Boney M. Katatumba
Above all, this book is dedicated to the people I think need it most- the youths of the world. For in them lies the key to our future. Hopefully, they can adopt the philosophy I share in this book to create an even better world for all.

I have been fortunate to have travelled to over a hundred different countries as Chairman G77 CCI. It is my conclusion that the youths are basically the same the world over. Their aspirations are often ignored as they struggle to find a niche in this sometimes cold and difficult world. Against the social, educational and political imbalances of societies in which they find themselves, they battle on, ever determined to make their voices heard.

As we remember Katrina, the United States is once again being tested. The island city Galveston, Texas, not too far from Houston, Texas, and other cities in the Gulf of Mexico, including New Orleans, are bracing themselves for another major storm this weekend. Rita, as she has been called, has climbed up to a category-5 storm in the warm waters of the gulf and a state of emergency has been declared in Texas and Louisiana. Over 1.3 million people in the region have been ordered to evacuate by authorities. Galveston’s mayor has called in thousands of volunteers to help evacuate her population of 58,000. The worst scenario has the island completely under water and it is here in 1900 that Galveston was struck by United States' deadliest hurricane in 1900.
