You go to shoot a Very Important Event (VIE) and right before the hand over, some guy decides to pop this crap right before the most important moment-the hand over. I cant help but scream ‘crap!’.
I was touched by the story of twelve-year-old Ivan Mwima whose fortunes changed when the team rescued him. Like most cases in Uganda, the cause of Mwima’s severe facial and hand burns is unclear but they left him with disfigured hands and unblinking eyes. His eye always had tears dripping because he could not close it to ward off flies and dust. He suffered jibes at St James Qualitative Primary School which greatly affected grades.
After the surgery in 2011 at Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services (CoRSU) on Entebbe road, Mwima’s performance improved. He was the second in his class after the third-term exams beating 30 classmates.
According to Tienne, the humanitarian work is done in every country that Brussels Airlines has a station in.
Ugandan teachers under their umbrella organisation Uganda National Teachers Union (UNATU) have entered the second day of the countrywide strike. The teachers are demanding for a 100% salary increment in the financial year 2012-2013. However, Education Minister Alupo reiterated the Government’s commitment to increase teachers’ salaries up to 50% by financial year 2014/2015.
The teachers have presented a petition to the Deputy today and will be discussed later this afternoon.
In Uganda the starting salary for a teacher is 270,000 shillings (approx 112.5 USD)
