No serious historian really doubts Jesus was dead when he was taken down from the cross. However, many have questioned how Jesus’ body disappeared from the tomb. English journalist Dr Frank Morison initially thought the resurrection was either a myth or a hoax, and he began research to write a book refuting it. The book became famous but for reasons other than its original intent.

I am amused many public and commercial vehicle drivers as they drive they struggle with the vehicles for they have to use a lot of energy to have control of the vehicles the main reason being that many drivers don’t mind of the condition of the vehicle and going to the garage will take time which is non- productive . Because of some defect or faults in the vehicle vibrations are created when you drive at certain speeds over 40 km/hour, you feel that the steering wheel suddenly begin to vibrate. This is even when your tyres are still in good condition and free of bulges and damaged threads. Sometimes you will feel slight vibration but other times you could hear thundering sound which only stops when you slow down your car.

The growing notion that for any policy –including social policy – to be successful it must be evidence based or informed, has been shattered by Uganda’s successful story of a largely well controlled and managed HIV and AIDS epidemic.  John Kinsman, in this groundbreaking book, which boldly departs from the usual evidence/science-is-supreme flow, argues that Uganda’s spectacular ABC (abstinence, behaviour change and condoms) strategy originated from no more than a “hunch”.  Intrigued by what could actually have guided AIDS control in Uganda, the author investigated a flagship research which was set up in the early days of the epidemic to guide policy.

The research – Masaka Intervention Trials – which sought to promote delay in sexual debut among youngsters, zero-grazing (limiting the number of sexual partners) and treatment of STDs, conducted from 1994 – 1998 found that HIV incidence was identical in both intervention and control populations. Simply and bluntly put, the much coveted trial interventions had remarkably failed. And yet, as argued by many – scientists, politicians and ordinary people alike - since there was a general trend of improvement in the HIV and AIDS situation over time, Uganda must have been doing something right, and the “right thing” was precisely these interventions.  Uganda’s HIV prevalence reduced from as high as 39% in late 1980s in some places to just 6% in 2004 nationwide.

In advance of his death, Jesus told his disciples that he would be betrayed, arrested, and crucified and that he would come back to life three days later. That’s a strange plan! What was behind it? He promised that his death and resurrection would prove to people that he was indeed the Messiah. Bible scholar Wilbur Smith remarked about Jesus: “When He said that He himself would rise again from the dead, the third day after He was crucified, He said something that only a fool would dare say,A painting depicting Jesus on the cross if He expected longer the devotion of any disciples - unless He was sure He was going to rise. No founder of any world religion known to men ever dared say a thing like that.”

Shawn Carter overcame a dirt-poor childhood in a Brooklyn housing project to transform himself into a world-famous rapper, marry Beyoncé, and build a sprawling business. In theory this rise should be inspiring. In practice it's quite disturbing.

A dapper older gentleman in a fresh China-blue and white kitenge African-patterned shirt approached me at the coffee house with a large grin. So elegant he almost gave a Florentine courtier’s bow when greeting me. I felt very honoured as this was Sanaa Gateja, one of Uganda’s greater living artists.

Various scholars of science and archaeological history have been doing research to defuse the mystery about Jesus’ death and resurrection as told in the Bible and whether therefore that means that there is life or no life after death. In a four-part series, a compilation of aggregated research on ancient history, The Independent will bring you in-depth theories and facts about this hitherto unresolved debate between the religious faithful and atheistic scientists.

Many motorists in Kampala now pimp their vehicles to make them look good light-wise. When you see some of these vehicles at night, they look like a mobile nightclub. Unknown to them, the lights they love so much can dazzle, distract, and confuse other drivers on the road.
