• The Problem with African Academics

    The problem with African academics is that they do not have any innovative and creative grit in them. African academics, it is very unlikely to find the next Mark Zuckerberg in them. Most of them are so obsessed with piling one academic qualification over another willy-nilly. Spending a great bunch of their lifetime in lecture [...]
  • Why was HIV/AIDS created, and what's coming next?

    Diseases, what do I know about those? As much as the next person, I guess. I am intimately familiar with the ones I have been down with, those people close to me have fallen a victim to, and the ones that make the news or I read about for one reason or another. I don’t [...]
  • A Case For – nay, Against – Numbers

    My friend Rugambwa Ivan Ninsiima has written a piece today over the recent duel between Bobi Wine and Andrew Mwenda.

    Mr President, you are right on Bobi Wine

    Your Excellency, once again I thank you for the humility and democratic spirit that allows you to respond to people like Bobi Wine (Robert Kyagulanyi) that you would ignore without losing anything.

  • Dear Sipi
