PROF CHIBITA: An #InauguralLecture is an opportunity to close the gap between the ivory tower & the public square. The Inaugural Lecture is a joyous occasion that allows a University to 'launch' its new Prof with a degree of celebration! 1⃣ #BetweenFreedomAndRegulation
PROF CHIBITA: Under #Museveni, the #Uganda press has had a degree of editorial independence. However, the NRM Govt has been uncompromising with the media when they have published stories deemed to threaten 'public order' & 'national security.' 2⃣ #BetweenFreedomAndRegulation

WILLIAM RUTO: If you cannot trust your child with an #education system that you are supervising, who else can trust it. All my children do the #Kenyan education system. #NBSPeopleAndPower #Interview
WILLIAM RUTO: I do not fit in any of the stereotype descriptions. I do not have much of a family name, neither do I belong to the largest community in Kenya, nor have the financial muscle. That is the Kenya of yesteryear. Today we have a different #Kenya. #NBSPeopleAndPower
RUTO: You cannot execute a national assignment using ethnic tools. You cannot run a national agenda using an ethnic vehicle. That is why you should safeguard the foundation of #NRM, and all other parties - they should all work to have a national constituency. #NBSPeopleAndPower

Ker Luo & Kwar Adhola start World Forum of Luo Kings | Joint communique signed after first official meeting in 500 years.

#Culture #Tourism
KWAR ADHOLA: The return of our brother to trace where he left his brother, is not an act of apology, rather it is a remembrance & proof that when we make a decision for the good of our people, it is a decision made in good faith. #LuoEldersVisitToUganda #Culture #Tororo
KWAR ADHOLA: Padhola must be feeling renewed. Padhola can now pick courage to stand on their two feet, and say this is the land which our forefather found for us. #KwarAdhola #LuoEldersVisitToUganda #MosesStephenOwor #KerOpiyoOtondi
