3rd May , UN honoured me in Best 5 Ugandan Journalists 2021

Days before 3rd May 2021, I was in Soroti, Eastern Ugandan for some days mentoring a training for Journalists on Climate change and I saw a post in the Youth Coalition for SDGs whatsgroup calling for nomination of journalists and why they should be awarded on World Press Freedom Day 2021. I suggested a name of a journalist I thought can be awarded and left it that way.


What I didn’t know is, the’re men and women who are trucking my coverage and stories I publish at HICGI News Agency for years. I run these stories by abbreviated name “ E K Benj”

I left Soroti and while in Jinja doing Heal The Planet Global Organisation- HTP work I received a phone call from a colleague “Earnest you have been nominated for this year on best 5 Ugandan Journalists to be awarded by United Nations!”

When I opened my phone, I froze reading multiple reasons why I was being nominated. That’s when I came to realise that the world watches over every small and big thing we do, wether bad or good. Some times they may not say thank you or you’re hurting us but they keep it at heart knowing one day they will react.

Now close to 50 people wrote about me for they keep trucking different things I have been doing in the last 10 years and they were recommending that UN awards me with 3 other Ugandan Journalists in honour of our work. I was humbled that the best way we can know what people think of us is not when we are around but what they say about us when we’re not around.

Today 3rd July am saying thank you for the people who nominated me, thanks United Nations for awarding me, congratulations NTVs Ali Mivule, NBS’s Mildred Tuhaise, New Vision’s Gerald Tenywa & Spark TVs Jocylenn Nakibuule

Parenting – Entanda from Mrs Samalie Lwanyaga

The pupils I taught in 1970 when I first joined the profession were completely different from the pupils I taught in the 1990s. There was a great sense of respect for elders.
The issue is about parenthood, parents have lost it. The other day I lashed out to a mother who I found bathing her 2 kids of 12 and 9 years in public. You’re exposing them to the bad people.

Mrs Samalie Lwanyaga & we.

Now that you’re parents, I request you to raise the children in the fear of God. I should also tell you this; mother don’t make a mistake to give any money to children in case they approach you without consulting the father. As he pays school fees and other responsibilities to the children, he may not give extra upkeep. If you decide to consult the father, the child will learn not to come to you again but will know mother and father are one. This will not create mum – dad’s favourite.

God knows why he has taken almost 7 years to give you the first child. Never ask why He didn’t do it immediately.

Words of Mrs Samalie Lwanyaga, Director Star Primary and Nursery Schools, visiting Kivumbi Earnest Benjamin & Princess Scovia

Congs Don upon your Graduation

You will speak among the elite and intellectuals, they will listen and adhere to your ideas because today success has embraced you. The world is watching I must say however, every small and big mistake we make or even the good things we do are all counted. As future leaders we ought to be more vigilant, honest and exemplary. Every level achieved calls for responsibility knowing that we will be made accountable and judged by our actions. Congratulations my great friend Don Vicent Bwana.
