Jules Dusabe to lead Rwanda’s lineup for the Tusker Malt Uganda Open pros tournament.

Rising star and Rwanda’s fifth player to turn Pro, Jules Dusabe, has confirmed his participation in this year’s Tusker Malt Uganda Open and he will be leading the team from Rwanda.

Jules Dusabe who turned Pro this year, is no stranger to Ugandan soil with his most recent participation being in the Mbarara Golf Open earlier this year.

Dusabe Jules

The 30 year old Dusabe, has won seven Rwanda Open Nett titles – 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2014, two Burundi Open gross titles (2007 and 2011), two Rwanda Open (2012 and 2015) and the 2008 Captain and President’s Cup titles in Rwanda.

Dusabe will be accompanied by players such as; Ndayisenga Erneste and Munyaneza Olivier who are some of the top players in Rwanda. Ndayisenga Erneste for example, is ranked number three nationally in Rwanda. Coming to the Open, Rwanda’s representatives will be seeking to have a better performance this year as both their representatives missed the cut on day two of last year’s tournament.

Although the Rwanda squad boasts of seasoned winners and hard players, there will be fierce competition from the Ugandans, who will be looking to retain the trophy on home grounds. It must be remembered that the defending champion of the Pros tournament of the Tusker Malt Uganda Open is the phenomenon Ronald Otile who won it last year at first attempt.

But, Ronald Otile will not be taking part in this year’s Pros tournament, there will be plenty of talent from the Ugandan side in; Deo Akope.

The preparations for the Tusker Malt Uganda Open pros tournament are almost finalized with an expected attendance of 83.

Lutheran World Relief Donates Items Worth over 800 Million to The Uganda Red Cross Society to Support Refugees.

Lutheran World Relief(LWR) has today handed over items worth over 250,000 USD (Approx UGX 800,000,000) to Uganda Red Cross Society. The donations that include 160 Bales of Blankets and 220 cartons of school kits among others were handed over to the Secretary General of the Red Cross at their offices in Rubaga.

LWR Country Director, Kenneth Barigye officially hands over the donations to Robert Kwesiga, the Secretary General Red Cross Society

The donation comes at a time when Uganda is facing an influx of refugees and asylum seekers fleeing conflict in South Sudan. It has been reported that over 70,000 South Sudanese refugees displaced by violence crossed the border into Uganda in July, according to the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR). The agency says that it is registering over 1,000 South Sudanese each day.

This crisis has severely stretched the capacity of Uganda’s refugee centres and constrained the country in terms of providing social services, food, health, education, water and sanitation services to the refugees and therefore any help accorded by donors goes a long way in making a huge impact to the refugees.

While addressing the press during the handover of the items at the Uganda Red Cross offices in Rubaga, Kenneth Barigye, the Lutheran World Relief Country Director said, “We at Lutheran are happy that we are able to contribute even so little to help make the lives of those fleeing violence a little better away from their homes.”

The donations handed over by Lutheran World Relief include 160 Bales of Blankets and 220 cartons of school kits

According to Robert Kwesiga, the Secretary General-Uganda Red Cross Society, these donations will benefit the refugees surviving in refugee Camps in Yumbe & ‘Adjumani. “Many refugees who recently moved from South Sudan are camping in the different settlements, and they need our support. More so, we have shifted some to Yumbe to decongest the settlements in Adjumani. These donations we believe will benefit especially those recently shifted since they are in a more –hard to reach area, and as they settle in, we hope to distribute these items to them to enable them live a fairly decent life.”

Since 1985, LWR has been working with local partners in Uganda to address the root causes of poverty and improve the livelihoods of people in the community. “In making this donation to The Red Cross, we continue with our work of trying to improve the lives of people. We hope these items will provide emergency relief and support the camp’s crowded schools and health centres.” Said Barigye.

“The scholastic materials will support children as they enroll in schools next term. Thank you LWR, and we pray that more partners will come on board and trust us with more resources to meet the needs of these vulnerable people,” Kwesiga said.

“We want to appreciate partners like LWR who have come up to trust Uganda Red Cross with resources to support these emergency operations. We appreciate this partnership and the resources given to support the vulnerable people.” Said Robert Kwesiga.

Study – Executives are consuming more content from fewer sources.

Overwhelmed by the amount of content coming at them, executives say they are more discerning about the sources they chose, and reward brands that are credible thought leaders with sales, loyalty and advocacy. This was one of a series of findings contained within a new global study released today by The Economist Group in association with Hill+Knowlton Strategies.

Lars-Erik Gronntun

The study, Thought leadership disrupted: New rules for the content age, explores the continuing relevance of one of marketing’s most enduring and popular strategies at a time when the explosion of content is overwhelming the c-suite.  It is based on a survey of or more than 1600 producers and executive consumers of thought leadership content worldwide.

It concludes that while thought leadership can still offer big rewards, practitioners face several challenges. These include the need to refocus on producing original, evidence-based content and embed greater discipline in its development – while at the same time continuing to push back the frontiers in terms of targeting, presentation and delivery.

“C-suite and senior executives are overwhelmed by content but continue to seek out new thinking and ideas that are credible, innovative and fact-based. They’re consuming more thought leadership, but from fewer sources. For marketers to make the list they need to reverse the trend of ‘more is better’ in favour of doing less, but more impactful, work.” said Jeff Pundyk, SVP Global Integrated Content Solutions at The Economist Group.

Lars Erik Grønntun, Chairman & CEO of Hill+Knowlton Strategies EMEA added:  “The study exposed a big shortfall in the discipline applied to the development of thought leadership. Presently marketers appear to be struggling with internal alignment and who to involve as well as connecting goals and KPIs. Thought leadership is a strategic activity and as such should apply far greater levels of rigour, much as you’d expect of any other high value activity.”

Summary of findings

  • Three out of five global executives sometimes feel confused or overwhelmed by the volume of content they encounter, with more than half noting that “intrusiveness” has increased.
  • Still, marketers continue to churn out content: 80% plan to increase the amount of thought leadership they produce in the coming 12 months.
  • Both executives and marketers agree that, on average, only a quarter of all the thought leadership content seen every day is engaged with, leaving much to go to waste.
  • And, more than 60% of marketers strongly agree or somewhat agree that internal alignment is a barrier to creating effective thought leadership.
  • On a more positive note, the vast majority of executives recognise an improvement in presentation and accessibility.
  • But, 75% have become more selective about the thought leadership they consume, with just over 80% citing the volume of content as the reason.
  • Yet 33% of executives consume thought leadership daily and 20% have increased consumption “a lot” over the past 12 months.
  • And, after consuming compelling thought leadership, seven in ten consume more from that same source; 76% are influenced in their purchasing decisions, 67% would be willing to advocate for that brand; and 83% are influenced in the choice of potential business partner.
  • Marketers see thought leadership as a flexible strategy that can help with a range of goals: differentiation (47%); recognition for company or individuals; (42%) building brand awareness (34%); increasing revenue (27%); paving the way for a change of direction or entry into a new market (20%); and supporting the policy agenda (17%). However only 8.8% currently use thought leadership to campaign on societal issues.
  • Compelling thought leadership is “innovative”, “big picture”, “credible”, and “transformative”, while unimpressive content is “superficial”, “sales driven”, and “biased.”
  • Credibility of thought leadership is based on the quality of research, not the brand; nearly half of executives would consider a new source of content if it were a “source of hard facts”.

Definition of thought leadership used in the study 

Thought leadership is the practice of influencing a community of interest by developing information, analysis and insight that helps its audience understand its world and plan for the future. It can be delivered through any medium, and can help companies raise awareness, shift perception and increase the status of their brand.

The airline currently operates the A380 to over 40 global destinations and recently announced its deployment to Guangzhou from 1st October, which is a popular trading destination frequented by travellers from Jordan.
