Open Letter To Mr Cobra

Dear Mr cobra,
I write this letter to you with too
much exasperation deep inside my heart. In early august on the 29th you decided to murder papa Bishop Gerusemu llukor.

You sneaked your
way into his food store at his
home. When Papa woke up early that morning and visited his own store he unknowingly stepped on your head.

Because you had sneaked in
under the door and took over the control of a place that did not belong to you. Little did Papa know of your presence since you were an unwanted visitor.

You instead got angry and fought Papa Bishop in his own food store! In his own home!

You murdered him with your poisonous fangs. But Cobra if i may ask you, Do you know the man you killed?

He was a humble
man of God. A man from with humble beginning but enormous

His Parents Mzee
Yakobo Opolot and Mama Juleri Akol must be wondering why you decided to silence their gift to the world for ever.

The entire villages of Teso and their neighboring villages would have loved to descend on you and pound your head for
taking away their beloved seed which they had planted whose fruits served the entire Teso,Karamoja and the country
at large. You have cut down the palm tree that grew under

Musa Ecweru would have
deployed his Arrow Boys to deal with you personally. But you were lucky to be killed by just a mere angry woman. She killed you before the entire village could pounce on you.

I wish you heard the honesty of the Man you have silenced for ever. A very good mobilizer of funds for building the soon completed church in Kampala.

You’ve dared the Acholi,They are infuriated by your

The man you killed was a
voice of restraints when the LRA
rebels made incursion into Teso,killed and abducted children.

Papa Bishop was the peace maker who rightly cautioned any one not to blame Kony’s atrocities on Acholi. He said Kony didn’t mean Acholi.

Do you know the man you
have killed?

To the Acholi you are like Kony and his backers.

The man you have killed was instructive in ending of the war in Teso.

His reconciliatory approach saw him work with president Museveni who he had
branded an enemy of Teso.

He didn’t embrace Museveni for the love of an individual but to push for Teso’s interests.

Go and see Bishop llukor Girls school, Kumi University or Teso
University you stupid Cobra.

Again had you been to All Saints church Cathedral, you would have heard the family of the late Brig Nobel Mayombo declare Papa Bishop as a
man of quality not of quantity.

You would have also heard the voice of Mama Lois Mary Aluka say to err is human but Papa’s humanity out-weighed his shot comings. Mama cried, saying you have brutally separated her from her childhood sweetheart.

Her cry is my cry. You may
have silenced him but his spirit will endure forever.

Rest in peace Papa.

Brain Damaging Habits

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to
have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to
the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading
to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead
to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of
proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and
may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our
body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply
of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease
in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term
deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of
brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the
concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease
concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain
damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead
to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well
as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain,
lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause
brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the
efficiency of the brain.

Britain defends detention of journalist’s partner

The British government,
accused of abusing media freedom, said on Tuesday police were right to detain a journalist’s partner if they thought lives might be at risk
from data he was carrying from fugitive U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden. Facing legal and diplomatic complaints after
police held Guardian writer Glenn Greenwald’s Brazilian partner for nine hours on Sunday – and accused by the newspaper of forcing it to trash
computers holding copies of Snowden’s data – the interior minister said officers were entitled to take security measures.

Home Secretary Theresa May said police held David Miranda at a London airport under anti-terrorism powers, which allow for action to prevent stolen data to aid terrorists. Material
from Snowden, published by the Guardian, has revealed extensive U.S. and British surveillance of global communications networks.
“It’s absolutely right that if the police believe that somebody is in possession of highly sensitive, stolen information that could help
terrorists, that could risk lives, lead to a potential loss of life, the police are able to act -and that’s what the law enables them to do,”May told the BBC.
She added, however, that an independent reviewer was looking into the police conduct.

As interior minister, May said she was briefed in advance that Miranda might be stopped but added that she did not decide who the police detained. The United States said Britain gave it
a “heads up” but it did not ask for Miranda to be questioned.
Snowden, who faces criminal charges in the United States, has been granted a year’s asylum by Russia.

A British lawyer who launched an action on Miranda’s behalf to question the legal basis of his detention said police seized a laptop computer, a telephone, memory sticks, a
computer hard drive and a games console from him. He was released without charge after reaching a time limit on such detentions.

Miranda had been in transit at Heathrow airport, carrying material from Snowden that was being
passed from Berlin-based American documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras to Greenwald, an American writer for Britain’s Guardian who lives
in Rio de Janeiro.

“These items contain sensitive, confidential journalistic material and should not have been seized,” Miranda’s London lawyers wrote in a
letter to May and the police.
In an interview with CNN along with Greenwald,

Miranda said the officers who questioned him
told him he could be jailed if he did not answer
everything they asked. Even though he was
detained under an anti-terrorism law, he said:
“No, they didn’t ask me anything about terrorism
– not one question about it.”

Brazil’s government has complained to Britain.
The action against Miranda also was denounced
by British opposition politicians, human rights
lawyers and press freedom groups.
The leaks by Snowden, a former U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) contractor, disclosed
details of NSA and British surveillance of public telephone and internet traffic.

The United States
and Britain say their agencies acted within their
laws and the leaks threatened their national security.

On Tuesday, Guardian editors revealed how and why the newspaper destroyed computer hard drives containing copies of some of the secret files leaked by Snowden.
A timeline of events provided by the Guardian said initial British attempts to stop reporting on
the files came two weeks after the newspaper published its first three stories based on Snowden’s leaks.
These stories were about a secret U.S. court order obliging communications company Verizon to hand over data on customers’ phone usage,

Britain’s secretive Government Communications Headquarters’ (GCHQ) use of data from an NSA
internet monitoring program, and British intelligence spying on allies in London.

Shortly afterward, two senior British officials arrived to see editor Alan Rusbridger to demand
the newspaper hand over all its Snowden files, arguing the material was stolen, according to the
Guardian’s timeline. He refused.
Three weeks later, in July, after the publication of more articles, officials got back in touch with
Rusbridger and told him, according to the newspaper: “You’ve had your fun. Now we want the stuff back.”
The officials expressed fears that foreign governments, particularly Russia or China, could
hack into the newspaper’s IT network although the journalists stressed the documents were not
stored on any Guardian system but held in isolation, according to the newspaper.

Between July 16 and 19, the Guardian said government pressure intensified and there was an explicit threat of legal action if the newspaper did not comply.

Rusbridger said he decided if the government was determined to stop Britain-based reporting
on the Snowden files, the best option was to destroy the London copy and to edit and report from the same material held in the United
States and Brazil.

On July 20, two “security experts” from GCHQ visited the paper’s London head office and
watched as deputy editor Paul Johnson, executive director Sheila Fitzsimons and a newspaper computer expert used angle grinders
and other tools to pulverize hard drives and memory chips storing encrypted files, according
to the newspaper. Both sides knew other copies existed outside the Britain.

“I hope what (the Miranda detention
controversy) will do is to send people back to read the stories that so upset the British state because there has been a lot of reporting about
what GCHQ and the NSA are up to,” Rusbridger said.

In Washington, White House spokesman John Earnest said he could not comment on the destruction of some of the Guardian’s Snowden
material. But he said he could not see U.S. authorities destroying an American media company’s hard drives to protect national

“That’s very difficult to imagine a scenario in which that would be appropriate,” Earnest told

Greenwald told CNN he felt emboldened by Britain’s actions.
“It’s not going to stop our reporting. It doesn’t do them any good. All it did … is give them a huge black eye in the world, make them look thuggish and authoritarian, interfering in the
journalism process” while creating an
international incident with the government of Brazil, Greenwald added.

“Journalism is not a crime and it is not
terrorism,” he said. He also criticized the United States for having received a “heads up” about
Miranda being questioned but doing nothing to discourage it or protect the rights of a free press.

Rooney Is Not Up For Grabs


Manchester United manager David Moyes has
reiterated that Wayne Rooney is not for sale and revealed the striker is on track to make his comeback in Sweden next month.

United have already turned down one bid from Chelsea for the 27-year-old, who is unsettled at Old Trafford.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has stated that Rooney is the Blues only current transfer target and it is expected the Portuguese will lodge
another bid for the player.

However, United’s stance regarding the England international has not changed. And they expect the hamstring injury that forced
him to leave United’s pre-season tour to have healed in time for Rooney to be in Stockholm for the friendly against AIK Solna on 6 August.
“We have said and the club have said he is not for sale,” said Moyes after Tuesday’s 3-2 friendly defeat against Yokohama F Marinos. “That has not
“I do expect Wayne to be in Stockholm. As far as I know he is coming on.

“He has started light jogging and the feedback from the physios is that he is progressing so hopefully those dates will still be right when we get back.”

Mandela Celebrates His 95th Birthday In Hopital


Ex- leader making “dramatic progress”, daughter says, as South Africa prepares national celebrations .
Nelson Mandela has made ” dramatic progress ” and may be going home “anytime soon ” said his
daughter Zindzi as South Africa prepared to celebrate his 95th birthday.

His doctors also have confirmed that his health is steadily improving, according to a statement
of the South African presidency .
” I visited him yesterday and he was watching television with headphones, ” said Zindzi Mandela in an interview with British media.

” He gave us a huge smile and raised his hand . ..He responds with his eyes and his hands,” she said.

Mandela , who turns 95 on Thursday, was gaining ” energy and strength “, said his daughter. “I should think he will be going home any time soon .”

The latest description by Zindzi – who is one of Mandela ‘s daughters by his second wife, Winnie Madikizela Mandela – is an improvement from
court documents filed by the family earlier this month which said he was on life support and near death.

Mandela has been in a Pretoria hospital since June 8 .

The news of the improvement in Mandela ‘ s health will boost his supporters in South Africa and
around the world who are preparing to celebrate his 95th birthday on Thursday, a day declared by the UN as a way to recognise the Nobel Prize
winner ‘s contribution to reconciliation.

Interest in Nelson Mandela International Day has ignited as a result of the former South African
president’ s hospitalisation in Pretoria and people find ways to honor his ideals.

A Johannesburg -based foundation named after Mandela and numerous other groups have asked people to volunteer 67 minutes to charity to
match what they say are the 67 years that Mandela served his community.

Mandela led South Africa through a tense transition from apartheid to democracy and became president in
the country’ s first all -race elections in 1994.


Nelson Mandela is seen as a hero by many Africans and people across continents.

President Jacob Zuma will mark the birthday by overseeing the donation of houses to poor white
families in the Pretoria area , in line with his Cabinet’ s theme to commemorate Mandela ‘s birthday this year by focusing on food security,
shelter and literacy.

In Cape Town, labour activists are holding an event at St. George ‘s Cathedral on Thursday, in remembrance of Mandela ‘s years of service and to encourage people to donate food to charity while leaving messages of support for the former
leader ‘s family.

Mandela , who is in critical but stable condition, has been hospitalised since June 8 , and hundreds of well wishers have left prayers and messages of hope at his Johannesburg home and
at the hospital where he is being treated.

Legal documents have said Mandela ‘ s breathing is machine – assisted.
