Newscast Media WASHINGTON—The United States has sent a stern warning to Burundi
President Nkurunziza advising him to give up his ambitions of running for a third term,
and also warned him not to retaliate against coup masterminds like Major General
Godefroid Niyombare, and the opposition movement.
When Nkurunziza made it back to Burundi, the whole world was waiting for him to
announce he was stepping down, and would not seek a third term for the presidency—
just like Congo’s Joseph Kabila announced, to avert further violence in his country.
Instead, Nkurunziza’s mistake is that he is taking faulty advice from his neighboring
fellow presidents, who are encouraging him to deal with protesters with a heavy hand,
and to ignore or violate the Burundian Constitution, by running for president beyond the
limits allowed by the Constitution of his country. CONTINUE TO FULL ARTICLE>>
Newscast Media BUJUMBURA, Burundi—For a while, Burundi opposition was able to
seize power from Pierre Nkurunziza as crowds celebrated the fall of a dictatorship in
which dozens of lives were lost during the protests.
Many conflicting reports were released about the status of the coup that started with a
mutiny. The government side said the coup was a “joke” while coup leader, Major
General Godefroid Niyombare announced he was in charge. Many people asked how
long it took to engineer a coup, since in other instances coups only took a few hours to
be consummated. CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>
Newscast Media BUJUMBURA, Burundi—The death toll was rising. The protesters
remained steadfast. The ambition of participating in a meeting on regional stability
was a lure too strong to resist. Little did he know that a mutiny was in the making, and
upon exiting the stage of his country, Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza was
declared persona non grata by his own military generals who turned against him.
The West and European Union had criticized Nkurunziza for deciding to run for a third
term since the announcement has led to the death of dozens of life.
What is curious is, whether the West had a hidden hand in luring Nkurunziza out of his
country, to attend a meeting, knowing that there were generals who would use that
opportunity to pull an “Idi Amin” on him? CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>
The map above shows the 12 different regions of Uganda which are: West Nile,
Acholiland, Lango, Karamoja, Teso, Masaba, Busoga, Buganda, Kigezi, Ankole, Toro and
Bunyoro. Granting federal status to each of the twelve regions will not only promote
growth and development, but also curb theft and corruption.
A Karamajong leader will find it hard to rob Karamoja’s treasury because the
Karamajong people themselves will hold him accountable, and it would also be
self-defeating for him to sabotage his home region. The same applies to all other
regions. CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>

In his radio interview with Voice of Uganda Radio, Kiyingi said he had evidence that
shows Museveni violated the Constitution, which means he believes Museveni has
rendered himself unfit for command.
“He failed to govern Uganda, based on principles of national interest and common good
enshrined in the national objective and directive principles of state policy, and here he
broke Article 8 section (a) of the Uganda Constitution. Therefore, we have a mandate,
we have a legal basis, even under the Constitution Museveni made himself, to effect a
change in Uganda,” Kiyingi said. CONTINUE TO FULL ARTICLE>>

Newscast Media CAPE TOWN—The memory of South Africans living in neighboring
African countries as refugees isn’t distant because apartheid is still fresh on the
countries that hosted their fellow Africans. Yet South Africans have shown their
gratitude by attacking the same hands that cared for them when they were destitute.
African immigrants have faced a wave of violence against their businesses, families and
personages from South Africans who accuse them of taking their jobs. While the
attacks against people from foreign countries is usually referred to as xenophobia, a
different phrase called “Afrophobia” has been coined since these are Africans
attacking fellow Africans. CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>
Newscast Media WASHINGTON—A new research study by the Sanford-Burnham Medical
Research Institute has shown that pancreatic cancer cells can be coaxed to revert back
toward normal cells by introducing a protein called E47. The E47 binds to specific DNA
sequences and controls genes involved in growth and differentiation. The research
provides hope for a new treatment approach for the more than 40,000 people who die
from the disease each year in the United States.
“For the first time, we have shown that overexpression of a single gene can reduce the
tumor-promoting potential of pancreatic adenocarcinoma cells and reprogram them
toward their original cell type. Thus, pancreatic cancer cells retain a genetic memory
which we hope to exploit,” said Pamela Itkin-Ansari, Ph.D., adjunct professor in the
Development, Aging, and Regeneration Program at Sanford-Burnham and lead author of
the study published in the journal Pancreas. CONTINUE TO FULL ARTICLE>>

Newscast Media HOUSTON—In exactly a month from now, graduation will take place, thereafter college graduates will either join the workforce or further their studies. A while back a soon-to-be graduate asked me for advice about landing a job as a journalist. I told him the very first thing he needed to do was buy a camera and cover local events while applying for jobs, and also create and update an electronic portfolio.
The young man was sad, and walked away, perhaps thinking I had withheld valuable information from him. He thought I was going to give him tips on how to create an impressive resumé or to use reference letters from influential college professors. Instead, I told him to go out in the field and refine his skills to prepare him for what lies ahead in his chosen profession. CONTINUE TO FULL STORY>>

Newscast Media KAMPALA, Uganda—Uganda law enforcement believe the assassination of State Prosecutore Joan Kagezi was pre-planned and methodical, because Kagezi was trailed by motorcycle gunmen, who targeted only her, and sped away after pumping bullets into her body, in a Kiwatule suburb around 7 p.m. local time.
Yet there are very many answered questions, that perhaps investigators, particularly local journalists in Kampala should look at. CONTINUE TO FULL ARTICLE>>

between the United States and Israel, the Pentagon has quietly released a previously-
classified document which reveals the extent of Israel’s nuclear program—a

controversial invitation to speak before the US Congress and warn against “a
nuclearized Middle East and the horrific consequences…to all humanity.”

Newscast Media HOUSTON—While college life shapes how students adapt to society, it is actually “culture” that plays a determining role in shaping each generation. We will take a break from the Spring Break narrative, and return to it after exploring other aspects of cultural trends and their impact on society.
If we look back to the 50s and 60s, we see an era where society used the little it had to make the best out of every situation. Poor people were able to blend into society without even being aware that they were poor because during that time, the people had a collectivist mindset. Neighbors trusted each other and even though it was a period that highlighted racial tensions, people had time to set their racial differences aside and celebrate their similarities, while attempting to embrace their differences.

Newscast Media AUSTIN, Texas—Last year, Governor Gregg Abbott who at the time was the Texas attorney general filed a lawsuit, together with 25 other states against the Obama administration, challenging the government’s authority to protect illegal immigrants. Just 24 hours ago, a Texas federal judge granted an injunction to the Plaintiffs, that will stop Obama’s program from being implemented.
The question the Court was faced with was, “Do the laws of the United States or the Constitution give the Department of Homeland Security the power to defer action against illegal aliens?” FULL STORY>>
