Mark Makumbi is dead!!! Too bad. Death is normal but this is quite tragic. I have struggled through todays Radio show with some “Dejavu” feeling. I wondered what was wrong and after signing off, i was happy the show had finally come to an end, yet the news anchor was standing by with the sad news. “Mark Afudde”, Archie Kiwanuka confers to me . I was devastated.  My brother Mark has battled with Colon Cancer for quite some time now, getting in and out of hospital wards with all the hope and support  of family and friends. He had countless operations as he fought for his dear life.

Mark was so full of life, hopeful that one day this dreadful challenge will come to pass. He wanted to make it big, and think beyond the narrow confines of some individuals. His father and mother are both legendary entertainers who also wanted to see their son emulate and carry on the talent they exhibited. This has not been the case.The Lord had his plans.

Mark was funny, humorous, witty, but also cautious. His presentation during sports commentaries  always had a few swahili undertones which made the whole experience sound interesting. I am going to miss Makumbi  everyday. As a friend and colleague, i would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody for all that you have accorded Mark Makumbi. Whosoever has played a role, through prayer, contribution, support , thank you and the good lord will reward you abundantly.  Just as James Riley says:

I cannot say, and I will not say
That he is dead. He is just away.
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
He has wandered into an unknown land
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since he lingers there.

RIP Mark Makumbi.





RTF Members visit Namusera.

RTFF

September 24th 2015 was Idd Adhuha day. On this day, i fulfilled one of my promises made at the beginning of the year, and that was having a cow for Thuhiya since one of the events on this day is the slaughtering of animals. I also invited RTF students for the celebrations at my home in Namusera. There was  too much meat floating around.  A cross section did attend and it was such a lovely day.





Mobile 2015 ends on a good note.

It speaks volumes

It speaks volumes

Every year in the month of June, my schedule reads “Leave time” and i decided to always take this time, not for granted but a chance to reflect on what the future holds for me. However, as i do reflect, i also get some time to run a few  activities including Mobile cinema. Its an activity that no one ever wants to execute  in Uganda but could redeem many young lads who wish to venture into Film.  The poster above speaks volumes, were my name is the brand and not the movie title or play. A staff member at  Good Foundation Primary school Masaka  designed it  and i applaud him(Mr Katongole ) for that initiative. The school has an enrollment of 1500 kids and each kid paid 1000 Shs. Their small main hall could only accommodate 300 kids per  show. I had four show running in a day. Thank you madam Nassuna Mary the Director. Till next year 2016, hopefully.





Bemba Musota

Whnever RTF students take their first semester holiday, it is always a nightmare as far as rehearsing for Bemba Musota is concerned. You never get to accomplish other projects since Bemba calls for concentration, physic, confidence and being passionate. Below is a pic of young girls who undertook the Misambwa part. its Hajarah, Zakia and Irene .
