TALES OF THIS WEEK’S ROTARY MEETING - SME's
 

Posted by David Omoding
On a hot Monday evening, Mr. Tony Otoa was scheduled to speak to the Rotary Club of Kampala South about SME’s being the engine of Uganda’s Economy. By the time the Rotary norms were done, you could hear a pin drop as everyone logged on in eager anticipation of what Kampala South had served up. SME’s being dear to many, the club hosted a sell-out attendance of over 200 Rotarians from four (4) continents, as well as Rotaractors and friends of Rotary.
 
There couldn’t have been a better choice of speaker for this hot topic other than the current Executive Director of the Stanbic Bank Business Incubator Programme, a semi-autonomous entity of Stanbic Holdings. Evidently, he was drawing from his vast experience in enterprise development at Stanbic Bank and previously at Total E&P, plus his formative grounding in Busoga College Mwiri.

PAST PRESIDENTS LOUNGE

PP SUSAN MATOVU
Welcome back to our Past Presidents' lounge where we learn about  which moments and events made  our past leaders who they are today. This week we had an interesting interview with PP Susan Matovu, known to the club as Senga Sue and she shared her personal journey in the club as President.
 
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Susan Matovu. My Rotary journey started as a member of the Rotaract Club of Kampala City, then later as a Rotarian in 1997 so it feels like I’ve been part of the Rotary fraternity forever! I was President of this Club for the year 2006/2007. Interestingly, three other Rotaract OG's and OB's of the Rotaract Club of Kampala City were Presidents in the same year – RC Ssese Islands, RC Kampala and RC Kampala North.

ON LINE MEETING ETIQUETTE AND DIGITAL HYGIENE

Compiled by  IPP  Peter Mukuru
 
The concept of transmitting images alongside audio in a communications exchange dates back over 150 years to the 1870's. Video conferencing technologies have developed more rapidly since 1927 to present day where almost every mobile computing device has capability for video conferencing or video calls. The biggest boost to the usage of such technologies could arguably be in the past 4-5 months with the advent of COVID-19 lock downs necessitating virtual meetings for majority of human interactions.

PAST PRESIDENT LOUNGE

PP RICHARD MAYEBO
 
Welcome back to the corner where we learn about our leaders the Past Presidents. Most of us are aware that they have contributed so much to Kampala South as a club, however we never dive deep into the specific ways, moments and events that made them who they are today. PP Richard Mayebo, known to the club as RFM says It has been a long while since I was President of the club (2002/2003) so some memories have faded since.” In this interview, he further shares his personal journey in the club as President.
 
Please tell us a bit about yourself.
 
I have been a Rotarian for 24 years, having joined the Rotary Club of Kampala South in 1996. Coincidentally, I got married to my wife Mercy a few months after joining Rotary, and we now have three wonderful daughters. I have worked in Information Technology for most of my life, and IT remains a passion for me.  1996 must have been an auspicious year – it is the year Mr. Arsene Wenger became the Manager of Arsenal Football Club, and soon thereafter I and many football fans become lifelong Arsenal supporters. The last few years have been lean (hopefully this will soon pass), but watching my team win a football match remains a pleasure, alongside listening to music over a fine whisky.

PP PATRICK LASSU
 
Welcome to the Past Presidents’ Lounge, where we learn about our leaders the Past Presidents. Most of us are aware that they have contributed so much to Kampala South as a club, however we never dive deep into the specific ways, moments and events that made them who they are today. PP Pat Lassu says “Being the then Vice President, I was catapulted to President Elect and had only 5 months to figure it all out by July of that same year because the President Elect then opted to step down in January 2015.” In this interview, he further shares his personal journey in the club as President.
 
Please tell us about yourself.
My name is Pat Lassu. A proud member of RC Kampala South since 2008. A husband to Henrietta and a doting dad to two girls, Mary and Christabel, and two boys, Christian and Caleb. I work with the Parliamentary Service Commission. I love golf and play as often as I can. Don’t ask about my handicap – I’m working on it.  Soccer occupies a special place in my heart too – I support Express FC locally, Arsenal in the UK and Bayern Munich in Germany. I’m also a budding farmer and I consider Aggrey Kankunda a great inspiration in this regard.
 
How would you describe the club membership then? How many? How did you ensure you attracted and encouraged new members to participate?
I can say that the membership was vibrant and teeming with pride and purpose. We hosted the Boat Cruise as usual and it was great party with a good return from the fundraising perspective. As a result, together with our international partners, we were able to advance the Kikandwa Project which remains a Club flagship project to date. Besides, the boat cruise had and still carries the additional spin off of making the Club more attractive to potential members.

FRIENDS OF KAMPALA SOUTH - Their Perspective

“The Rotary club of Kampala South meetings are usually attended in big numbers not only by club members but also other Rotarians. I think the magic is that they have set a particular standard that makes it fit their description of class”said Musa Sekamate when asked what he finds interesting/ inspiring about Rotary Kampala South.
 
Musa, a member of Rotary Kampala East says he got to know about Kampala South because both  his club together with Kampala South conduct their Rotary meetings (fellowship) at the same venue; Hotel Africana although on different days. He discloses that the members of Kampala South are good people, notably his friends; Dr. Richard Kalungi and Rogers Karebi, who he usually works with on several other Rotary engagements. Musa describes them as very resourceful and inspiring young men.

District Governor Visits Kampala South

 
Rotarians from Kampala South awoke to a heavy downpour on Monday morning but none of their moods or excitement was dampened. The buzz was loud, the excitement was boiling over and the organisers were running around like headless chicken in order to ensure that all preparations for the Installation of President Jennifer and the District Governors visit were precise has in keeping with the brand of Kampala South. 
 
The day's event kicked off with extremely prompt arrival of the Assistant Governor Jimmy Serugo who was on hand to receive the District Governor who also arrived very early. It enabled the board meeting kick-off 15 minutes before scheduled. The discussion that ensued was very candid and the main points driven by the DG was that a club like Kampala South should give more to the Rotary Foundation but also seek to become a club with over 200 members. Suffice it to say that it was imperative for the club to observe the standard operating procedures for public meetings. Read more

Posted by Peter Mukuru on Jul 06, 2020
DG, PDG, PE, Friends.
 
I have known few greater honors than the opportunity to lead a team of volunteers committed to serving humanity. I thank the members of the Rotary Club of Kampala South for having entrusted me with the responsibility of being the Club President in 2019/2020 when the theme was Rotary Connects the World. It has been an extraordinary honour and privilege to serve and Connect with you.
 
 
I wish to thank the Connecting Board for the generous and inspirational service. I thank our Past Presidents, AG Emily, PDG Xavier, my fellow Connecting Presidents, my colleagues, family, and most importantly God, for the support and for enabling me to execute the demands of the office of the President. I am grateful to our partners who have journeyed with us, and to RC Kampala North who always join us in service. In a special way, I thank VP Charles Odaga who always stood in for me. He, however, seemed to enjoy the President’s office more than I did.

The Road Trip fellowship to Murchison Falls, Pakwach.

DAY ONE

I recently attended a talk organised by the Rotary Club of Kitante where Peter Iganga was a presenter and the topic was on travel. His question to his audience that challenged most of us was on ' the last time one went outside Kampala not for work, burial, or Christmas but to tour our beautiful country- Uganda.' Your guess is as good as mine! None of us present had ever done that. Peter went on to explain how foreigners/ whites/ Bazungu pay huge sums of money to come to Uganda to see places we have never been to. Indeed it was a challenge because personally, I have never been to any of the tourist places in Uganda. I used to look at them as a Bazungu/ or rich guys or people who have nothing to do.

Rtn Harriet Napeera Obbo had this to say ''Oh Uganda what a beautiful country regardless! The landscape, beautiful people, owesome weather, incredible nature and wildlife, tasty food and the Ubuntu still exists and so much more......Always reminded every time I explore. I'm So Uganda # Ondaba.''

A single gift of $14.7m for TRF

Posted by from rotarynewsonline.com on Nov 03, 2018
 
When a Rotarian donates a whopping sum of ₹100 crore or $14.7 million to The Rotary Foundation, the first question you ask him is how and when the idea was planted in his head. D Ravishankar, President, Rotary Club of Bangalore Orchards, D 3190, travels back over five decades to answer it. An important takeaway from his days as a young boy in a government school — a private school was beyond his reach — was the refrain by a senior teacher who’d say: “You should give till it hurts, because till then you are sharing your comfort, not everything that you have.”

Posted by From myrotary.org on Nov 02, 2018

One early June, more than 30 years ago, I had a business trip scheduled to Las Vegas. I had been a Rotarian for about six years, and I thought of myself as an active member: I attended every meeting, I’d served as club secretary, I knew everyone in my club. But for me, Rotary was very much a community organization. It connected me to Nassau and perhaps even to the Bahamas — but no farther.

OVERCOMING STIGMA, A STORY OF A POLIO VICTIM

Posted by Miriam Wegoye on Oct 24, 2018
Rotary International has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years. The goal is to rid the world of this disease “POLIO”. As founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Iniative, Rotary has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since the first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. Rotary has helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries. So far, Rotary has contributed more than $1.8 billion toward eradicating the disease worldwide.
 
Monday, October 22, 2018, was yet another special fellowship at the Rotary Club of Kampala South. Fellowship began at exactly 6:00 p.m. with President Ian and Secretary Suzan chairing the meeting. We had the introduction of fellow Rotarians, Rotaractors and guests. Ambassadorial make-up visit reports given by club buddy groups such as “Kikandwa buddy group”.  The club happily hosted the "Interact Club Bishop Sisto Mazzoldi"  at fellowship
 
Mr Allan Kabaale a polio victim's story began at an age of 2 month. He was a healthy little boy before 2 month until he got sick with malaria for a whole year. In that year, he became very ill and anemic. His mother decided to abandon him in the wilderness to pass on. In the wilderness, there was a heavy down pour of rain that greatly affected his health state. By the time he was discovered in the wilderness, he was pale and close to death. His grandmother took him in and took very good care of him.
 
Due to his sorry state he was given treatment and medication by an orthopedic Doctor. He recounted numerous injections given to his body that affected his nerves and eventual contributed to his disability. Now, had there been good health facilities and early diagnosis and treat, Allan would have been a health and normal human being to-date.
Mr. Allan shares his story as interact students listen to him.

Appropriate responses were given and a satisfied audience was visibly noticed.

THE GIRL CHILD

Posted by Miriam Wegoye on Aug 24, 2018
The national statistics on school drop out is quite alarming. The girl child is unfortunately most vulnerable to dropping out of school, for so many unfortunate, yet preventable factors.
 
Ranging from child marriages, family gender discrimination, stigma created by biological factors like menstruation and a host of other factors have all contributed to early school dropout for the girl child. Fortunately, there are as many possible solutions as there are challenges in minimizing the effects.
 
On Monday, 27th August, 2018, we shall be honored to host the leading girl-child advocate, Mrs. Hope Nankunda Mwijuka to highlight the impact these challenges have had on the girl child, as well as what needs to be done to avert the effects.
 
Please plan to join us on Monday, 27th August 2018 at Hotel Africana from 6:00pm for yet another educative and fun-filled fellowship.
 
Remember to invite a friend.

ARE YOU VIGILANT ENOUGH WITH YOUR PERSONAL SECURITY?

Posted by Miriam Wegoye on Aug 16, 2018
We believe your week started off well and you enjoyed our last fellowship about diabetes. We always bring you fun filled, yet very informative fellowships, and this Monday will not be any different. Most of us have become increasingly complacent when it comes to matters of security, personal or otherwise. The question is, how vigilant are we, in as far as our surroundings are concerned? Are we security conscious enough? Or have we left it to the security operatives?

ACCESS TO CHEAPER CAPITAL?

Posted by Miriam Wegoye on Jul 27, 2018
As a country, we have registered one of the highest interest rates across the continent. Oscillating between 12% to 35% is not only unsustainable, but is also not practical, especially for our business environment. Not to mention the laborious process of loan application from banks. One can comfortably conclude that the business environment, with specific emphasis does not favor business and economic growth.
 
Recently, the government of Uganda adopted Islamic Banking, which has injected a breath of relief in the business community. Islamic banking operates on a different doctrine from the conventional banking.
 
We shall be blessed to host, our own, Rotarian Innocent Agaba, an established expert in Islamic Banking to enlighten us about Islamic Banking.
 
Please join The Rotary Club of Kampala South on Monday, 30th July 2018 at Hotel Africana from 6:00pm for a fun-filled fellowship as we get to learn.
 
Please encourage a friend to visit as well.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL PLANS TO HAVE A MEMORABLE ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE BOAT CRUISE HAVE BEEN SUMMARIZED AND TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE. DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS ICONIC EVENT. ASK ANY MEMBER OF RC KAMPALA SOUTH FOR THE TICKETS.

Money and intimacy in relationship

Posted by Miriam Wegoye on Jul 19, 2018
Modern day relationships, and particularly marriages have been known to be financially influenced. The extent to which a couple permits money/finances to influence their relationship can only be determined by the couple itself. Many-a-couple have been known to disagree, and in some isolated instances separate because of differences in opinions over money.
 
Intimacy too plays a pivotal role in a way a couple relates. But how often do we examine these factors as influencers of strengthening our relationships?
 
Today, Monday, 23rd July,2018, we shall be honored to host "Senga" Mariam Nagujja to lead us through a discussion on MONEY AND INTIMACY IN A RELATIONSHIP.
 
You are invited to this fun-filled fellowship at Hotel Africana from 6:00pm. Please invite a friend.

The Rotary Club of Kampala South once again hosted a fun packed fellowship. Monday, July 16, 2018 was a very interesting fellowship that began on time presided over by President Ian. As guests streamed in, the likes of Rotarian Sewagudde were captured giving members, “the famous presidential Croatian warm welcoming hug.”  Fellowship began with the Rotary norms and we quickly proceeded to team Troono “Rotary International Toronto convention team”. They were all overly excited about their experience at the Rotary International convention in Toronto. Places and sessons like market place, house of friendship and various rotary clubs among others were visited. The Troonos were proud that they were able to attend the Rotary International convention in Toronto.
 
The long a waited pornography talk followed with Dr. Annette Kezaabu Kasimbazi sharing about how pornography is a crime by law in Uganda, what constitutes pornography, what the legal implications to any offenders were and she shared a story about a boy who was addicted to pornography till 60 years when he decided to quit, after an encounter with a 21 year old lady prostitute. Numerous questions were asked especially concerning children and what they were exposed too in the entertainment industry. Dr. Annette concluded her talk with food for thought saying, “The way you enter a dark hole is the way you will come out of it!!!!” Here is a fun packed pictorial view of the educative fellowship.

Since the Hon. Minister of Finance read out the National Budget for the financial year, 2018-2019 on Thursday, 14th June 2018, on behalf of the President, I guess you have been wondering, if you will afford the same lifestyle after paying off a list of taxes that come into effect starting 1st July 2018. What comes to mind are taxes like Social media tax, taxes on mobile money transactions and your day-to-day transactions and how they will all be affected. If you want to know how this budget will affect you, and the average Ugandan, the implications on the economy, you have an opportunity to get it from the leading consultant on tax on Monday, 2nd July 2018 starting at 6:00pm at Hotel Africana. And it is absolutely FREE. All you have to do is invite a friend, workmate, relative or neighbour. The Rotary Club of Kampala South will give you a warm welcome.

Past President Jane responded to all question with comprehensibility. This left majority of attendees gratified with apprehension propelling them to know more about the importance and legality of a marriage and the usefulness of the Uganda Registration Services Bureau.

Posted by Florence Nakyeyune on Mar 21, 2018
All roads led to Hotel Africana on Monday 19th March,2018. Every Rotarian, Rotaractor and Guest wanted to partake of the wisdom of Father Kateregga. Amazingly this young Priest could pass you unnoticed bu the great wisdom and insight he has to life is amazingggggg. Katonga hall was fully packed to the extent that one would think it was a mini DCA. Father Kateregga emphasized that God is the most important element in life. A person without God  is a time bomb irrespective of how wealthy , popular or beautiful they are. Father also cautioned the meeting that there is need to value family because as one grows older, friends and money could disappear but your family will always be a constant. He asked the single ladies and gentlemen in the room to spare time for producing and raising children. A lot of words of wisdom were shared by Father Kateregga but also his humour left the meeting engrossed in laughter. For more details kindly follow this link.

All roads led to Kampala South on Monday 14th August,2017 for the Mega Induction of four new members. If there is anything Kampala South has taken seriously, that is the message of (R.I.P.E) Sam Owori. As usual with a big bang approach, four new members were inducted. Friends and family attended in big numbers which made the event even more spectacular. The joy and happiness of joining the Rotary Club of Kampala South could not be denied as can be seen in the picture below.
 
 
The Induction was made by District Governor Nominee Xavier Sentamu. Special thanks to the sponsors as well as the Director Membership for making this happen. For more details about this event, please follow this link

Membership at South!

Posted by Florence Nakyeyune on Aug 08, 2017

 

Kampala South has definitely taken the membership drive to another level . Six members due for induction were able to talk to the fellowship about why they wanted to join Rotary and Rotary Club of Kampala South in particular. One thing stood out, Kampala South is a brand to reckon with!
 
 
Even making the fellowship better, was a presentation on chapchap, an application meant to provide financial inclusion to Ugandans both in and out of the country. Key message  from the presentation  was "Technology cannot be denied anymore". 
 
As is the usual tradition to celebrate our members, birthday cards were given to all the babies and boyyyyyyy ohh boyyyyyyy did the club secretary showcase his hugging skills. For pictures on this event, please follow the link

Posted by Charles Odaga on May 09, 2017
 
Welcome back to all who travelled to Arusha for the 92nd District Conference and Assembly (DCA). You surely did keep the Rotary flag flying high.
 
On a more interesting note, the oft-alluded to #SouthernStorm was seen gathering clouds over the awards ceremony during the DCA. Lo and behold, the #SouthernStorm gathered so much dust and turned into gale force winds as the awards were read.

……Bang the lightning struck and the club won the following at the 92nd DCA - Closing Session:

1. Community Service Projects- Rotary Club Kampala South (works with four active Rotary Community Corps aka RCCs),
2. Family of Rotary - RC Kampala South (Highest number of family social events),
3. Most participation in club youth Programs RC Kampala South.
 
     

We would also like to congratulate Rtn Kenneth Mugisha on assuming the mantle of District Governor Elect 2017/18. Congratulations too, to Rtn Xavier Sentamu for being elected the District Governor Nominee Designate.

Kla North Singing & Dancing Competition 2016

Posted by Charles Odaga on Nov 12, 2016
 
The famed Kla North Singing and Dancing competition was held on Saturday 12th November at the Law Development Centre Auditorium. The newly completed facility provided a very convenient place to hold this competition as the heat from the blazing sun was quickly warded away by the powerful air conditioning in the hall. The total number of clubs participating were significantly less than in the previous year but the passion and commitment was even greater.
 
The RC of Kampala South a joint team with Rotaract Club of Kampala South - 'The Southern Stormers'. The excitement among the participants was fever peak as memories of the win (dance category) during the 2015 competition continued to  pervade the conversations about the clubs to watch out for.
 
The Southern Stormers emerged the overall winners of the singing category and our lead singer (Jayne) was awarded a prize fr the best vocalist. The RC of Kla Ssese emerged the overall winners of the Dance category with the Southern Stormers coming second. The performances were 'Electric' to say the very list;
 
A few photos below will give you a glimpse into the event;

KLA SOUTH INDEPENDENCE BOAT-CRUISE 2016

THE INDEPENDENCE BOAT CRUISE
--------How it went down
The long awaited Rotary Kla South Independence Boat Cruise 2016 can only be described as splendid, to say the least. On Sat 7th Oct 2016, over 250 Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends of the Rotary family were part of a fundraising event aimed at raising funds for the Kikandwa Health Centre in Mukono.
We are happy to announce that we raised more than UGX 11m which will go towards the construction of the Maternity Ward at our Health Centre in Kikandwa.
From the information shared above, it’s quite evident that the image of Rotary was enhanced and positively promoted, for example the guests had an opportunity to have a one on one with Rotarians to get a better understanding of how projects are run and why its important to partner with the Rotary fraternity. We need more hands in Rotary.
 
And finally by all means possible, the event fostered "international understanding" & teamwork given the blend of social, organisational, political & cultural diversities.

And ofcourse....wats a parrrty without DJ APE-MAN.......The "beats were to the bone"
 
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Kampala South, and on my own behalf, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all those who joined us. For those that didnt sign up this year & those that were left behind due to unavoidable circumstances, don't despair, #BOAT CRUISE 2017 is just around the corner #360 DAYS TO GO, LET THE COUNT DOWN BEGIN........

We promised that it would be bigger – YES it exceeded all our expectations!
 
We ranted that it would be better than the rest – INDEED it was an epic experience!

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Kampala South, and on my own behalf, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all those who joined us.
 
Meetings are already underway to ensure that we correct any short comings that we faced this year and ensure that next years’ cruise will literary ‘blow you out of the water’.
 
Merci beaucoup!

It was touching and yet very educative & informative......!The "Southerners" hosted Mrs Jackie Namara Rukare on Monday 26th September 2016 at Hotel Africana (home of the Rotary Club of Kampala South). She made a very moving presentation, on HOW TO DEAL WITH CHILDHOOD DIABETES. With no medical background, Jackie is helping families and children suffering from Diabetes through her company SugarCUBES - an initiative founded to provide a support network to help both the children and families to cope with living with childhood diabetes. She shared a personal experience of how she has dealt with this for more than 5 years in her own family and called upon all parents and all human beings to be vigilant, and get the basic ABCs of handling this situation. 
--Jackie Namara Rukare addressing the members -- 
 
KAMPALA SOUTH GETS NEW STRATEGIC PARTNERS.....>>>>>>
It was yet another "first of its kind" as the Southerners signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) with 106.1 JAZZ FM and M CONSULTS with the main objective of improving awareness and Rotary image within the country and beyond, and strategic Public Relations and branding.
The Club has created "THE ROTARY MINUTE"  in partnership with 106.1 JAZZ FM which will be aired every day. This is a Kla South Sponsored platform where the "facts about Rotary" will be shared with general public. 
 
--The MD JAZZ FM, Christine Mawadri, & President Kla South after MoU signing-- 
 
Kla South shall also FREELY air announcements of projects, activities, conferences & training organized by any Club in D9211 (Rotary, Rotaract, Interact). The Clubs simply have to contact the Kla South PR Directorate on +256701145556.
More to that, the partnership with M CONSULTS, is designed to enhance Club & Rotary Image in and outside the country through professional branding and PR services. 
--M Consults Associates Kenneth Bwengye, Grace Agaba together with President Geoffrey Kla South after MoU signing-- 
 
And as usual, it was merry making during and after fellowship as the MIGHTY PLUTO BUDDY GROUP treated the members and guests to a "sumptuous" combination of "kabalagala, bagiya & pizza" That explains the happy faces below..............VVVVV 
If you missed out, NEXT WEEK COME WITNESS 4YOWA SELF..............#SouthernHospitality..

Monday 19th September 2016 was yet another exciting evening at the Rotary Club of Kampala South as we discussed Pension systems in Uganda; and not surprising is that the focus was on  "SAVING FOR RETIREMENT"...
Yes.....that's right; Let me break it down for you, R*E*T*I*R*E*M*E*N*T. That Monster most of you dread, especially when you have not sufficiently prepared for it. Am i communicating to some one? If yes, then you should have been at Kampala South on Monday. But if you were not, all is not lost as we bring you the highlights.
 
The Guest Speaker was a seasoned expert from Uganda Retirements Benefits Regulatory Authority (URBRA), Mr. David Nyakundi Bonyi - the CEO of URBRA. Mr. Bonyi elaborated on the Pension Systems in Uganda, the sector liberalization efforts, the Private Schemes Vs NSSF, and also shared tips on saving for your retirement. 
URBRA is a government-owned, semi-autonomous agency responsible for regulating, licensing, supervising, and controlling the retirement sector in Uganda, the third-largest economy in the East African Community. The authority is also responsible for issuing guidelines to allow the liberalization of the retirement sector in the country.
 
Shock and happiness was in equal measure as the Guest Speaker's words sank deep into the minds of those in attendance.
 
 
...........And while all that was happening, some "devious" fellows also seized the moment to try out their "long hours practiced accent" just to impress the grand daughter of Sir Samuel Baker's neighbour's friend's cousin who was also the Queen's inlaw to the......................anyway its a long story, NEXT WEEK COME WITNESS 4YO SELF..............#SouthernHospitality..

HISTORIC VISIT TO KLA SOUTH BY DG JAYESH ASHER

Posted by Charles Odaga on Sep 13, 2016
 
Monday 12th September was a public in Uganda thus the RC of Kampala South would, as per usual  standards, not held her famous fellowships. This however, was not the story at the club. The members had earlier agreed that the visit to the club by the District Governor would process as earlier scheduled.
 
As the hours drew closer to the time wen he would commence his visit by holding a meeting with the board, the hotel grounds stood be decked by eloquent looking rotary branding merchandise under scoring the importance of the occasion at hand. The board member sat in the meeting room eagerly though calmly composed as they were all donning the club branded apparels.
 
 
The DG arrived in time, 4:00pm, at the meeting venue to a thunderous applause from the members present. He was escorted to the meeting by his wife and daughter and accompanied by the AG James Nkooka.
 
The members present then hastily agreed on the modalities to follow and the meeting commence in a very collected atmosphere.
 
 
Following all reports by the directors the DG was all praise for several aspects about the club namely;
 
1. The use of Clubrunner as a tool for communication. He applauded the use as being the best in the entire district.
2. The clubs zero tolerance on non-payment of dues.
3. Timely accounting - though he advised the club to adapt two column accounting in order to correctly apportion use of monies.
 
The was a photo opportunity at the close of the meeting with the board
 
 
The team then moved to the main hall for a plenary session of fellowship and induction.

The Object of Rotary reads in part "...to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service..."
 
The photographs tell the whole story
 
The last members were seen sauntering out of Nommo gallery at midnight.

Sanitation - A Viable Business In Kampala

Posted by Charles Odaga on Mar 14, 2016
 
On Monday 14th March, RC Kla South hosted a double thriller style fellowship which included a presentation on Sanitation as a viable business in Kampala and also hosted Herbert Segujja aka Mendo aka Teacher Mpamire a reknown comedian in East Africa.
 
Jude (extreme right below) is the Water and Sanitation Supervisor at KCCA.
 
                    
 
                
 
Mendo aka Teacher Mpamire then shared his life story interlaced with a lot of mimicry of H.E. Yoweri Museveni and a nit of Dr Kifefe Besigye.
 
The thunderous laughter was continuous and really crowned a very interesting evening for our club and guests
