The man (Lt. Col. Abdullah Nasur) said he wanted a house for resettlement. My question was, why a man saved from the gallows, should also need government help.

The man (Lt. Col. Abdullah Nasur) said he wanted a house for resettlement. My question was, why a man saved from the gallows, should also need government help. I asked who sent him there (prison),Prof. Gilbert Bukenya, Minister in charge of the Presidency, commenting about request by the former death row inmate, Nasur, to be resettled by Government. * * * The fact of the matter is that Heritage Terminal is a subsidiary of Heritage Foundation, a private business venture owned by some known Movement leaders and supporters. Neither the Movement nor the Movement Secretariat has any shares or interests in whatever form in the above companies, Ofwono Opondo, the Movement’s director of information, refuting reports that Heritage Terminal belongs to the Movement. * * * What is fundamentalism? It is not even an islamic word. It actually starts with Americans. You recall those Christians who left Europe in the 19th century to go to America, where they would be free to practice their religion in an exclusive fashion. These are the people who have today come up with the blanket term of Muslim fundamentalists, when referring to Muslim extremists, Prof. Badru Kateregga, former ambassador to Saudi Arabia, explaining that terrorism is not islamic.
