By MUGISHO N.THEOPHILE, published on Sep 13, 2010

Majority of men do not love church but they love outdoors activities and business. They take opportunities for hunting, fishing and watching soccer. They love politics and enjoy sipping on a cold beer and for others they rejoice with some funny and dirty jokes among themselves; but they never go to church. If you asked them why they never go to church, they are ready to defend themselves and argue that church is boring, irrelevant and even hypocrite. But this is not the true reason behind this.

In spite of that, the animals which live on the beach are purposely equipped for living on the seaside. In fact, this makes sense for us, too to bear some of the problems in mind, and to consider our own equipment very carefully. If your intention is simply to enjoy an easy day, then you’ll only want to carry an anorak of some kind in case the weather turns against you, but if you are likely... (more)

The Strong and Deep Meanings of the African Dance

By MUGISHO N.THEOPHILE, published on Aug 4, 2010

Africa has many cultures and therefore varied traditional songs and dances. Traditional African dance delivers far more than meets the casual on looker’s eyes. It represents the actual fundamentals and belief systems that the specific African culture stands for. So whilst an outsider may believe that the dancers are simply jumping around, in order to have a good time, this is not the case.

A good history lesson about any given culture will reveal that any African people’s traditional dance is deeply imbedded with meanings and symbols that reflect the cultural beliefs and their lifestyle.
