To Die Empty

By Ben Mwine, Uganda: “The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without purpose.” Myles Munroe I hadn't had power for more than a day which means, we had no access to civilization, quite literally. No TV, no radio, no internet and no phone. When I got plugged back into the world, I expected the world to […]

Cold Cash: Money can buy me love

By Ben Mwine: It's an age old adage made famous through song by the Beatles and later one of my favorite groups, Blackstreet. The general consensus as expressed through a famous poem has always been that money can buy you a house but not a home; a bed but not sleep; sex but not love etc. Mostly true but isn't […]

Cold Cash: One by one makes a bundle

By Ben Mwine: As I have been thinking about money (which I'm sure most of us do more than anything else), I've been learning quite a lot about it, and getting some interesting revelations about it too. Now if you're a typical African, saving is something that's probably alien to you. Giving is even more alien to most people. It's […]

Cold Cash: More money=More God?

By Ben Mwine: Let's face it; all of us have been victims or culprits of this thinking at some point. We use people's wealth to measure how “blessed” they are. In fact when someone mentions the word blessing, most of us instantly think about money and wealth, no?  And yet we couldn't be further from the truth. In the good […]

Cold Cash: Money, what’s the deal?

By Ben Mwine: And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love; love for money. Well that's the reality of the world we seem to be living in right now. You probably already know that Jesus talked more about money than he did about anything else. That's how much of big deal money […]

Bitten by a monkey!

By Ben Mwine: When I was a little boy, maybe about 5 years old, I, my big brother Kenneth and a bunch of other kids in the neighborhood made quite a reputation; as terrorists! Well at least that's what I think the monkeys must have thought. There were a lot of monkeys which used to visit our neighborhood to eat […]

African men and Love

By Ben Mwine I recently had a strong argument with a friend of mine who said that African men, and in particular Bakiga/Banyankole men are very unromantic and don't know much about love.  The main basis for Jane's argument was that they never tell their kids/spouses that they love them. If you have watched any of the numerous American family […]

The Power of music

By Ben Mwine: I have no pleasure in any man who despises music. It is no invention of ours: it is a gift of God. I place it next to theology. Satan hates music: he knows how it drives the evil spirit out of us – Martin Luther I could as well say enough said and leave it at what […]
