Tumusiime Mutebile, the governor of the Bank of Uganda, has died.
Mutebile’s death was verified by Nairobi Deputy Governor Micheal Atingi-Ego, who said Mutebile died on 23rd January 2022 at Nairobi Hospital, where he had been hospitalized on December 31, 2021, after collapsing due to diabetes issues.
Several government officials have begun to remark on the governor’s death, with Minister of Works General Katumba Wamala expressing condolence messages to Bank of Uganda staff, workers, and Mutebile family members.
Following a long period of illness, signs that the most well-known Bank of Uganda governor was in poor health surfaced in March 2021.
Following 20 years at the helm of the Central Bank, a frail Mutebile arrived in Parliament for re-election, backed by advisers on both sides.
“The governor was physically frail but intellectually very strong,” says Luttamaguzi Ssemakula, the MP for Nakaseke South.
Dr. Gabriel Tumwiine, a Makerere University professor, has written another exciting book, “Seeds of Success and Wealthy,” which has been hailed as a terrific stimulant to thinking and an aid to life review since its release a week ago.
“It ignites your inner winning behaviors, allowing you to attain long-term success and money in any pursuit you pursue.” The author, Dr. Gabriel Tumwiine, adds, “It gives advice on how you might cultivate those inner winning behaviors.”
“It discusses what successful and affluent people have done, encouraging you that if they can do it, so can you,” she adds. It declares unequivocally that everything written may be studied and that there is no cost to you.”
Dr. Tumwiine, author of “Who Stole My Dream?” “Dream again,” he says, claiming that his book “Seeds of Success and Wealthy” provides readers with an inner starting point for taking control of their journey as they attempt to achieve the success and wealth they deserve.
The 2022 Grammy Awards have been postponed due to COVID-19 and “uncertainty around the omicron variant,” according to the organizers.
The Recording Academy and CBS said on Wednesday that the Jan. 31 Los Angeles awards event would be postponed following “careful study and analysis with local and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community, and our numerous partners.”
The Recording Academy and the TV network both stated that hosting the show during the outbreak of omicron posed “too many hazards.” “Our top focus continues to be the health and safety of individuals in our music community, the live audience, and the hundreds of employees who work tirelessly to produce our program.”
However, the joint statement implied that the show would go on — a “future date” for the 64th annual gala will be “announced soon,” according to the statement.
Due to a surge of COVID-19 cases in California, last year’s awards show in and near the Los Angeles Convention Center was moved from January to March.
After an extraordinary wave of reforms approved in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, state legislatures will begin debating revisions to voting rights and election administration rules in the following days.
According to the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, at least 74 such measures have been pre-filed in 11 states. Thirteen of them, filed in four states, would limit access to the ballot box.
That’s on top of scores of laws filed last year that would restrict or increase voting rights, or modify the way elections are handled, and which will be carried over into the legislative sessions starting this week, including 88 bills across nine states that the Brennan Center deemed “restrictive.”
Illinois, Michigan, and Pennsylvania legislators will debate bills that would allow elections officials to remove inactive voters from voter rolls. Legislators in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are considering making it illegal for election officials to mail out unsolicited absentee ballots. In addition, legislators in more than a dozen states will propose new or increased voter identification requirements.
Democratic legislators are pushing to increase voting rights as part of a national effort to make voting rights a central feature of the party’s platform ahead of the November midterm elections.
“There is a concerted attempt for us to go on attack as well as defense.” “This is a watershed moment in our history,” New York state Senator Zellnor Myrie (D), who chairs the state Senate Elections Committee, stated. “We have only been successful when we have gone on attack, when we have brought the fight to the voters.”
Myrie plans to draft a “Unprecedented New York version” of the Voting Rights Act, which would give the state attorney general new authority over election operations and establish a presumption of voting rights. He also plans to submit legislation to make absentee ballot drop boxes permanent, a procedure that New York temporarily implemented during the coronavirus outbreak.
In remarks on the anniversary of the insurgency at the Capitol, a former Trump White House staffer criticized the events of Jan. 6, 2021, as a “coup attempt” and claimed the former president “failed to meet the occasion.”
The riots from a year ago were “one of the worst days in American history,” according to Sarah Matthews, who served as a deputy press secretary in the Trump White House and quit on Jan. 6 over the day’s events.
“Make no mistake, the events of June 6th were a coup attempt, a phrase we’d use had they occurred in any other country,” Matthews stated in a Twitter thread. “While it may be easy to ignore or whitewash the situation.
Before entering the Trump administration in 2020, Matthews worked as a spokesperson for the Trump campaign. She is presently in charge of communications for the House Select Climate Committee’s Republicans.
Matthews resigned on the evening of Jan. 6, 2021, after a tumultuous mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to prevent President Biden’s electoral victory from being certified.
On Thursday, Republicans largely avoided commemorating the riots’ anniversary. Some Republicans, like as South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, accused Democrats of politicizing the insurgency by holding speeches and remembrances.
Democrats have been waiting for a year for President Biden to call out former President Trump for his claims about the 2020 presidential election and pinpoint the role Trump played in instigating his followers to “fight like hell” to contest the result.
Standing in the Capitol on Thursday, Biden finally did just that.
A widespread sentiment among Democrats has been that Biden hasn’t been hard enough on Trump as the former president relentlessly accuses Democrats of rigging the election and making repeated claims about widespread voter fraud in which a variety of legal maneuvers and state certifications have failed to prove.
Biden accused the former president of putting his personal interests ahead of the country, promoting a “network of lies” that lay the stage for the Capitol attack, and posing a clear threat to democracy on Thursday.
“It was one of Biden’s strongest speeches,” Democratic strategist Eddie Vale said. “He struck the ideal mix between recalling the losses of the day while plainly and frankly explaining who was responsible for the assault and that they’re continuing their efforts to this day.”
While Democrats applauded Biden’s remarks, Republicans and conservative critics criticized them as divisive.
Biden’s statements, according to Doug Heye, a Republican strategist and former spokesperson for the Republican National Committee, will resonate with Democrats but not with independents or Republican supporters who recognize his election.
“The less political it is, the better for Biden,” Heye remarked, “and this was political.” “It’s unclear what Biden was intending to achieve or what his goal was by going after Trump today and doing it as fiercely as he did.” It surely does not bring the temperature down.”
Following his speech, Biden told reporters that he avoided mentioning Trump by name because he “did not want to turn it into a modern political issue.”
