    Lockdown:inside the dark lives of sex workers in Kampala

    Africell's Exit Was Only A Matter Of Time
    It would be a misplaced narrative to claim that Africell was outcompeted. It was just boxed in a corner from which it got stuck. Actually, the best line of argument would be, Africell was outmanoeuvred in a race controlled by two giants - MTN and Airtel. The two telecoms control at least 90 per cent of the market share with the rest - 10 per cent - shared between three or four other telecoms, some of which have exited or have been swallowed up. For the uninitiated, Africell entered a...

    Museveni Reveals Plan To Deploy Troops To Guinea,Saying He Wants Coup Plotters Out
    Mr President, I want to begin with the situation in Guinea. Just a few days ago, the coup [plotters] overthrew the elected president Alpha Conde. What is your reaction? That is unfortunate. It is a step backwards. Those military coups are of low value. We had them in the 1960s, they were part of African problems. So, I condemn the coup. We don’t accept the idea of coups. Those coups aren’t a solution. Should they be sanctioned against the authors? They should get out. They should...
