    Muslim relatives of a former sheikh in eastern Uganda who refused to renounce Christ killed his 6-year-old son on Monday (Nov. 23), two days after Islamists in the western part of the country killed a pastor and his 12-year-old son, sources said.

    Update (1000ET): Donald Trump Jr. has just raised an interesting question in a tweet: Is Twitter censoring the Hunter Biden stories from the NY Post at the behest of the Communist Party of China? "There needs to be an immediate government investigation into @twitter/@jack. Not just because of their blatant election interference to protect Biden, but to find out if they're censoring these NY Post stories at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party. Put Jack under oath!!!" Don Jr. tweeted. There needs to be an immediate government investigation into @twitter/@jack. Not just because of their blatant election interference...

    Uganda, a country in east-central Africa, has a 2018 population of 42.729 million, which is 13% of the United States’ population of 328.239 million in 2019. And yet Uganda has 1,603 COVID-19 cases and just 15 deaths (h/t Rush Limbaugh), wherease the U.S. has 5,656,744 COVID-19 cases and 175,105 deaths. That means: Uganda’s number of COVID-19 cases is only 0.028% of the number of U.S. COVID-19 cases; and Uganda’s number of COVID-19 deaths is only 0.008% of the number of U.S. COVID-19 deaths. How can that be, when Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a...

In any case, Sheikh Hussein Byaruhanga Husain is not an “extremist.” The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah....

    On this date in 1886, thirteen Catholic men and boys, as well as nine Anglican Christians, were burned alive in Buganda, a kingdom in modern-day Uganda. Most of them pages at the royal court, they had been martyred for their faith. The kingdom of Buganda came in contact with Europeans in the 1860s; Arab traders had been doing business there a few decades before that. Christian missionaries arrived in Buganda in 1879. In the next few years many court officials converted. King Muteesa I tolerated Muslims, Catholics and Protestants and played them off against other for political gain, but his...

    ENTEBBE, Uganda—The government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro is selling off his country’s gold reserves. Some of it has passed through a secretive operation in East Africa, a gambit that evades U.S. sanctions. On two early-March flights, at least 7.4 tons of gold with a market value over $300 million moved from Venezuela to a refinery in Uganda, say officials in Venezuela and Uganda, a foreign diplomat and Venezuelan opposition lawmakers, who have concluded Mr. Maduro’s government exported the ingots. The gold arrived on a Russian charter jetliner in two shipments at the international airport in Entebbe, says Ugandan national-police...

    Vendors in Soroti Main Market have deployed bouncers to enforce safety measures against the spread of coronavirus. The bouncers are tasked to deny customers who refuse to wash hands access to the market. Mr George William Eriebat, the chairperson of Soroti Market Vendors Association, said the initiative was taken following concerns that some customers were rushing past handwashing facilities. “You will not know who is infected with the virus. The best is to observe hygiene by frequently washing hands but some people have been ignoring that,” Mr Eriebat said. Mr Ted Enangu, one of the vendors selling farm inputs, said...

    Mutumba claimed he hadn't been intimate with his 'wife' since the wedding two weeks before because Tumushabe said 'she' was menstruating. . . . But Tumushabe was rumbled when he was arrested or theft of a television set and clothes from his next door neighbours in January. A female police officer carried out a body search on the suspect, thinking Tumushabe was a woman, and found out he was actually a man. Mutumba is said to be 'too devastated' to talk about the incident and needs counselling.

    Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg held a press conference in Davos, Switzerland, on Friday and complained the climate movement’s demands (on fossil fuel divestment) have been “completely ignored” this week by attendees at the World Economic Forum. Asked for her impressions of the event, a clearly underwhelmed Thunberg was to the point, saying “We had a few demands (coming into the World Economic Forum). Of course these demands have been completely ignored. We expected nothing less,” She cautioned that while world does not treat, “this crisis as a crisis, and as long as the facts are ignored, we will not...

    Following Uganda’s independence in 1962, the landlocked Central African country has suffered from multiple civil wars and guerrilla movements. One of those brought Idi Amin, a tyrannical dictator, into power in 1971. During his presidency, Uganda first developed relations with North Korea. The relations between the two countries have strengthened during the Ugandan presidencies succeeding Amin until today. The first high-level cooperation between Uganda and North Korea was recorded in April of 1972 when a high-level military delegation representing the Idi Amin government partook in military celebrations in Pyongyang. During this visit, three agreements were reached between Uganda and North...

    On July 4th, 1976, as America celebrated its Bicentennial, four Israeli Air Force C-130 Hercules planes carrying over 100 Jewish passengers, twelve Air France flight personnel, and their Israeli rescuers landed safely at Ben Gurion Airport. The safe landing of civilians and commandos marked the end of a week-long, nightmarish drama that gripped all of Israel. The saga began on June 27, when a Paris-bound Air France commercial airliner took off from Tel-Aviv. The plane was scheduled for a stopover in Athens. Lax security at Athens International Airport enabled four terrorists with forged passports – two from the notorious West...

In a lawsuit filed in January at the High Court in Jinja, mothers Gimbo Zubeda and Kakai Annet allege that she caused their babies deaths and the...

A five-year-old boy who had crossed into Uganda from Congo died late on Tuesday, said Uganda's health minister, Jane Ruth Aceng, and his family were now being monitored in isolation. The two new victims were the boy's brother and grandmother, the Ugandan health...
