Felista Di Superstar Joins Kampala Parents School

Ruparelia Foundation has fulfilled the pledge they made in December last year to sponsor Faith Nanyanzi aka Felista Di Superstar to achieve her education dreams at Kampala Parents’ School (KPS) on a full scholarship.

The Ruparelia Foundation Managing Director Rajiv Ruparelia unveiled the enrolment of Felista Di Superstar before members of the press and other entertainers in the music industry. Felista Di Superstar, only seven years old, was accompanied by her mother and father Nyanzi Michael Kasibante.

Felista joins young musician Patrick Ssenyonjo known by his stage name Fresh Kid who got a scholarship from the Ruparelia Foundation in May 2019 to study at Kampala Parents’ School. Fresh Kid and his father were present at the unveiling of Felista.

Rajiv said he was compelled to support Felista because of her exceptional talent despite being only seven years old. He added that Felista was joining a model school which creates more opportunities, thus advised her to participate in all co-curricular activities.

“I would love to see her become a guide and inspiration to many young people out there hence, Ruparelia Foundation is presenting this young girl with a full scholarship from the Ruparelia Foundation to go to Kampala Parents’ School,” Rajiv said.

“Education is not about learning in the book, education is about learning about life skills that will help you live in the future; that will help you when you are old.

“We shall ensure you learn how to be confident and we shall make sure that all we offer you help grow your music career,” Rajiv added.

He advised Felista’s parents to save the money they were going to use to pay her fees at her previous and use it to pay for her secondary education.

Fresh Kid Appointed To Carry Out Street Children Advocacy

Uganda’s youngest recording hip hop artiste, Patrick Senyonjo aka Fresh Kid, 8 years, has been appointed by state Minister for Youth and Children Affairs Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi to do advocacy work that will see young children off the streets of Kampala and Uganda at large.

The minister also appointed Ian Calton Muyimba, the new head boy and Agartha Ahumuza, the new head girl of Kampala Parents School to tea up with Fresh Kid, also a pupil at the same school.

The minister who was presiding over the swearing-in of prefects at Kampala Parents School Friday morning said that he will present the three youngsters to the Prime Minister to be given instruments of power.

“This is a sign to show that even if you are coming from a well to do family as a child, your  primary responsibility should be to look at people who don’t have the same privileges because we are striving to bridge the gap between the well to do people and the underprivileged,” Nakiwala said.

She said the three infants will be tasked with the role of advocacy of making sure they encourage fellow children not to return to the street and to encourage people who have to give back to those who don’t have. 

“We passed an ordinance as Kampala Capital City Authority banning street handouts to street children but that doesn’t take away the fact that there are good-hearted people who would like to continue with the spirit of giving.

They are supposed to ensure that the giving is done amicably and through the right modules to be able to reach out to those children,” Nakiwala explained.

In an effort to get street children off the street, Nakiwala and government set up seven homes across the country to resettle street children. 

“On the main streets of Kampala alone, we had 10, 000 street people spread across the main hotspots and peripherals who were working in shifts but now we have completely eradicated the problem.

What we want to ensure is sustainability and rolling out to Wakiso and the metropolitan area, which means we have to continuously engage their fellow children.” She said.

Speke Group Top Hotels To Host Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference

Speke Group of Hotels will provide 5 of the 20 hotels approved by the organizing committee for the 64th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) scheduled to run from 22 to 29 September 2019.

The steering committee on accommodation chaired by Nakaseke North Member of Parliament Syda Bbumba selected Speke Group's Kabira Country Club, Speke Hotel, Royal Suites Bugolobi, Speke Resort and Conference Centre and Munyonyo Commonwealth Hotel as the main host hotel.

Bbumba said Munyonyo was the preferred choice of the United Kingdom Head of delegation while Greg Petzer, the General Manager of Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort said they are more than ready to host the event.

“We have had enough time to prepare and ensure that the resort is ready. Our workers have been retooled and are aware of the importance of the conference to the country,” Petzer said.

The 2019 CPC is running under the theme, ‘Adaptation, Engagement and Evolution of Parliaments in a Rapidly Changing Commonwealth’.

According to a description on the 2019 CPC website, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) was founded in 1911 as the Empire Parliamentary Association and was run in the United Kingdom. Originally, it comprised Australia, Canada, Newfoundland, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

It would later change the name in 1948, a plan that saw the coming on board of most Commonwealth. It also has an independent, fully-fledged secretariat based in London, financed by all member states.

The annual flagship event is bringing together Parliamentarians, parliamentary staff and decision-makers from across the Commonwealth.

Delegates started arriving Sunday and were being received by Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda and Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.

During the meeting, being hosted by the parliament of Uganda, Commonwealth Parliamentarians will address global issues and the evolution of parliamentary democracy.
