Uganda adopts eco-friendly transport
Kampala: Jan 4. The bodaboda industry has responded to the ongoing fuel shortage in the country with the introduction of a new type of personal public transport vehicle that is not dependent on petroleum fuel. The new vehicle runs on eco-friendly, locally available fuel sources and is set to replace the hitherto popular Bajaj and Mate brands.
The new brand, known as Donkey, has already been successfully launched in the more backawad suburbs of Kampala city, Muyenga and Rubaga, where residents and businesspeople embraced it enthusiastically.
Minister cautions youth
The Minister for Ethics and Integrity, the Honourable Maureen Namatovu, has urged the youth to resist the corrupting influence of foreign culture. Speaking at the opening of the Little Sister Home For Remorseful Whores Namatovu decried the rate at which Ugandan youth succumb to brainwashing by foreign elements. She called upon young girls to be vigilant and watch out for cultural influences from other countries that are likely to corrupt their minds and cause them to compromise their morals. She urged them to be especially careful of countries like Malawi, which, she said, are full of corrupting influences.
