The film received its first broadcast in Uganda and subsequently screened at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Black International Cinema in Berlin where it was selected as Best film on matters relating to Marginalized People.

BLOOD DIAMONDS Set against the backdrop of the 1990s civil war in Sierra Leone, this politically charged thriller stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a soldier of fortune who learns that Mende fisherman Djimon Hounsou has unearthed a priceless pink diamond. As the pair tries to recover the gem from the ruthless rebels who possess it and rescue Hounsou’s kidnapped child, they encounter American journalist Jennifer Connelly, who wishes to expose the diamond-trafficking trade that runs rampant throughout West Africa.

      I believe that andoiivg processed foods will be the first step to lose weight. They will taste good, but packaged foods have got very little vitamins and minerals, making you take more in order to have enough vigor to get over the day. Should you be constantly feeding on these foods, moving over to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will help you have more vitality while eating less. Great blog post.

    Hi there,

    Just briefly, as i’m not certain this will be read, but i am wondering if Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine does any goodwill work for Uganda, such as championing education for example. I am working on a UN contract and wondering if there may be an opportunity to do something with him. Is he ever in Uganda, not that that is a deal breaker?

    Kind regards,
