Cryptography. Should Africa embrace the bitcoin revolution or sit back again and pretend like nothing is going on?

By now, I know you must have heard a lot about words like cryptography, bitcoin, etherium, litecoin And so many other such words. It’s also possible that you’re reading such words for the first time. Don’t worry, I got you! Those familiar with these terms might have thought of investing in bitcoin or have already invested your money. Has it worked out yet? I know it has. or it hasn’t yet.

Cryptography is slowly taking verge in the economic field with Shatoshi Nakamoto’s bringing its birth with the invention of bitcoin. It then stealthily penetrated into the monetary system without any confidence. Some people looked at it as a form of cyber theft as a lot of hackers roamed the system. Many investors who invested in it lost much money but now, good news keep bumping in as security continues to tighten in the system, confidence in the system is getting mustered and millions of people are joining the new wave!

Question is. What’s up Africa? By the end of 2018, bitcoin was the most searched word on google in Nigeria and it ranked number one on google trends in Africa. Bitcoin has got a lot of investors in the United States and Europe.

In Africa, Nigeria and South Africa have embraced the new form of soft money. Zimbabwe, Uganda and others are slowly peeping in but with little confidence.

Soft money is the new trend available now and there is a possibility that soon it will replace the hard cash. It’s time for Africa to jump onto the truck and race on. Cryptography does not need a lot of documentation or a complex procedure. One only needs a gadget and internet.

However much the the inner processes seem complicated and hard to understand, one does not need to know everything, just the current banking system. But for the start, one would wish to know full information so that he/gets enlightened and is able to speak from an informed point of view. If you stay with me at this blog, we shall walk together and muster this system.

Kyambogo University guild elections.

Kyambogo guild campaigns started off to a hook on Tuesday as over 10 guild presidential aspirants returned their nomination forms with chanting and ululating crowds as they escorted their candidates to show their mantle to the Kyambogo University Electoral commission. Kimera William, a student of Development Studies, year II, was among the aspirants, standing as a flag bearer of People’s Progressive Party.

The nomination day fed a lot of humor to the Banda population and those who had enough time to enjoy the space as each camp rolled in with something new they could think of.

The beguiling disappearance of Kimera William.

Early on Tuesday as Kimera’s supporters looked for him to congratulate him on his nomination success, they were met with bad news of his attack and sudden disappearance in the night.

No one could believe this development until his closest friend showed up with a bandaged forehead and arm, claiming that they were attacked in the night, around 10pm, by an unknown gang as they were in their door to door campaign.

The case was immediately reported to police, but the police was not contented with situations surrounding the case as the bandaged student failed to revealed the bandaged areas for confirmation.

Rumors have been continuously declaring this as a political stance, but no one is sure. There are growing suspicions among the various camps as the search for the missing lion continues.

The Kyambogo community has been asked to provide any information concerning this incidence to the police. The major thing now is directed at finding Kimera and then see what comes next.

We hope Kimera Williams comes out from wherever he is concealed from, safe and sound.


Today, 7th March starts the guild presidential debate at the campus and Kimera’s supporters and stranded with no ideas. We will however keep you posted about the future developments in this story.

BOBI WINE Declares his Utmost Ambition. It’s a great inspiration from the ghetto boy who dared!

Provided that we’re united, with or without me, peaceful change is inevitable in our country. We cannot go for guns, because we know the problems the people who used them have caused.

Bobi Wine.

Bobi wine speaking at one of his rallies.

Bobi wine grew up from one of the ghettos within Kampala city, strange place for a future icon. He forged his life into the music industry, rocked every billboard and made his name penetrate into every household. He did not chase luxury like his other counterparts. He was wise. He had a vision. He had strict principles. He did not follow the crowd but followed his mind. He chased respect, genuine wealth, the wealth attained from super hard work.
Now, after laying a perfect background that is visible to everyone, he decides to do the dare!

In a country like Uganda, deciding to stand against the president (Museveni), especially one who believes that there is no other man than himself who can lead the country, is the same as declaring that you’re ready to offer your health, wealth, family and life for your people. It’s not something done by any coward. It can only be done by a super courageous man, one with a heart of steel.

As any boy living in any Ugandan ghetto would, Bobi did not become an exception this time to drug addiction. He fell for the game, but even when he did, he looked at how to conquer, to stand at the top, and indeed he deed (shhh…I know the right spelling). He even got entrusted as the ghetto president ( The ghetto president of the republic of Uganja). He became an inspiration to the ghetto youths, a music preacher, a credible motivation singer.

Then he did the strange thing! He decided it was time to part ways with drugs. Time to preach and change the addicted youths. Time to be a honorary man in society. Did he succeed? Yes! He did! His followers parted ways with drugs because he looked like a cult to them, a living role model. They were determined to do whatever he said.

He now turned the music into a real teaching ground. It was no longer only about entertainment, but edutainment as he terms it. Within a short time his name was among the country’s great business moguls. His story inspired anyone who got a chance to hear about it. He did not blame anyone for the poor state he found himself in but worked hard to change it. He became, and still is, proof that hard work pays.

No matter how much wealth he amassed, he did not draw away from his people. He was always available to help, wether a peasant trader’s source of living had been burnt down and he was the only one standing for him or when there was need for him to sensitize people using his music. His music became the tool.

“Its not that I don’t fear. I am a natural human being but I know there is something more powerful than fear and that is the future and destiny of our country.”

Bobi Wine.

All this has made him the darling of the Ugandan youths who now look at him as the only hope for change. He has created a legacy behind him that has caused a new sickness of uncertainty to the ruling president. A great legacy that cannot be tarnished within weeks, months or years. The legacy of a people’s man, a common man. His natural-made enemy has turned every stone to rub his name off the scene but no good results seem to be yielding.

With the malpractices that characterize many African elections, we hope Bobi Wine has a secret he holds for making him trust in the forthcoming 2021 Uganda’s general elections.

My fun reads from 2018 fall in to four unorthodox categories: Memoir Slash Comedy, War-Themed Fiction, Romance, and Mystery.  

 

Comedy Slash Memoir Slash Comedy

This category is really muddy, I know.

Yes, Please by Amy Poehler

And the reason for the muddiness is because of this witty memoir of Amy Poehler, the comedian who stars the SNL. This book is essentially a comedy slash memoir slash comedy.

If you are not an American though, I’m just going to warn you there’s loads of names that you probably have never heard of in the book. Otherwise, you’ll know whom those fellas Poehler‘s talking about.   

The Funny Thing Is … by Ellen Degeneres
