It’s been over three decades since the regime of Uganda’s Idi Amin collapsed at the hands of Tanzanian Defense Forces.
Yet, many Ugandans still wake up disturbed and haunted by memories of his dictatorial rule.The family of Theresa Nanziri Bukenya is one of them. Bukenya, a Ugandan mathematician and warden of the women’s-only hall of residence, Africa Hall, at Makerere University was killed by Amin’s regime for refusing to conspire with it in the killing of a student and the disappearance of another…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

On the evening of June 22, 1976, Bukenya’s body was found with bullet wounds on the neck at the banks of a river. She was 37, had just married and was seven months pregnant.

She would join a tall list of others who had suffered cold death at the hands of the Amin regime.

Many believed she was targeted by the regime as the brilliant mathematician was not only an inspiration to women and girls but had been a symbol of bravery against the state.

Several hundred thousand people are believed to have been killed during the 8-year regime of Amin, who has since been renowned for the wrong reasons.

After seizing power from the then president of Uganda Milton Obote in 1971, his dictatorial style of leadership made many see him as a monster. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

He had come to power with good intentions for his people but as time went on, he became power-drunk and started abusing people, historians say.

Bukenya was at Makerere University during this period and had introduced many policies aimed at providing a conducive environment for female students to study.

“In a show of love to the girls and their education, she introduced security lights around Africa Hall and on the steps. She also provided hot water for the girls to bathe in,” Dr. Maria Musoke, the chief librarian at the university recalled in 2007.

It is said that her security lights were to keep government soldiers from “preying on female students.”

To promote girl-child education, especially in mathematics, she once accepted a post at a remote area.

“Nanziri [Bukenya] was a staunch catholic, very courageous, strong-hearted and straight forward. She was a very good mathematician- in fact, one of the best teachers of that subject I met in my study days back in the sixties,” Rosemary Musisi Kobere, a warden at Makerere University, recalled

A 76-year-old woman has been judged for not wearing appropriate attire for her age.

Unphased by the criticisms, Candace Leslie Cima responded to the negativity by showing off her flawless figure in a chic black one-piece swimsuit She has remained unbothered by what haters have to say and continues to prove that women can still look beautiful and fashionable at any age…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

Candace Leslie Cima is a 76-year-old mother, grandmother, wife, artist, businesswoman, and model born in Buffalo, New York. She is known for her blog “Life In My 70s: Aging Is Changing,” in which she discusses how women should embrace all the things that come with aging naturally and gives lifestyle and fashion advice.

According to Cima, she has always had a keen fascination with the concept of aging and its often negative associations attached to it. Her interest in the aging process started when she was in her 20s and 30s.

As a businesswoman, she is the owner of a senior housing community and has been for over 32 years. Of her years getting to know older people from different backgrounds, Cima concluded:

“The one thing I know for sure is that Aging is Changing. We are not our mothers or our grandmothers. We now have the chance to be productive, intelligent, compassionate, [and] stylish women throughout our later years.”

Speaking of style and fashion, Cima is also well-known for showcasing her gorgeous fashions on her TikTok account, where she typically adorns very trendy and what some may consider youthful apparel. Despite garnering 94,000 followers on TikTok, Cima often experiences trolling over what she chooses to post.

Many people criticize the beauty for not dressing for her age and deem her outfits inappropriate. However, the unbothered 76-year-old does not let the haters get to her by any means and instead claps back at them by continuing to adorn the clothes she wants to wear.

In a previous TikTok video, she was seen sporting a chic daytime look that appeared as an outfit someone in their late 20s to early 30s may have also worn: a short-sleeved white top with edgy light blue slacks and open-toed white heels.

The text in the video shows a previous negative comment by a viewer expressing how Cima should not be wearing what she is wearing at age 60. While strutting her stuff in the video, she shuts the comment down and corrects the viewer, saying that she was actually 75 at the time.

Another mic-drop moment was when she appeared again in a TikTok video this year, adorning a chic, figure-hugging, black one-piece swimsuit while on vacation in Florida. While strolling around the poolside area, her supporters gushed about how amazing she looked.

Cima’s social media account on TikTok was initially created to encourage people to rid themselves of negative connotations concerning aging. She seeks to empower women of any age to embrace the beauty that comes with aging naturally and gracefully.

Unthwarted by people who have told her that she shouldn’t wear certain items of clothing because it is frowned upon at her age, Cima continues to inspire fellow older women. On her blog, she frequently talks about the elements of aging she loves. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

Of all the elements, being less stressed, having the maturity to accept things out of her control, learning to do something new, and being fearless are her favorite characteristics of aging. According to Cima, aging has the potential to be the best time of someone’s life:

“Many older women live vibrant and fulfilling lives as they age. More and more women are setting records and breaking through barriers.”

As someone who has engulfed herself in every facet of aging, Cima makes it no secret that, of course, there are the occasional older women who set limitations on themselves as to what they can or cannot do. However, she is adamant about other older women not allowing themselves to be influenced or shaped by this rhetoric that dictates that women are incapable of doing certain things past a particular age.

As she has gotten older, Cima reports being more consciously aware of how anxiety and stress affect her. She discloses that though the feelings are unavoidable, with time and meditation, she recognized a way to combat the detrimental physical effects of those negative feelings by balancing and working on the relationship between herself and her stress and anxiety.

Cima continues to ignore the ageist criticism dished out by haters on social media.

With aging comes perspective and experience, ultimately setting the tone for one’s attitude toward life. Cima says:

“Attitude is everything, and changing how you look at something can change how you feel about it. Changing how you feel about it can change the outcome… Aging does not mean stopping; it means you now have accumulated wisdom that is unstoppable if you want it to be.”

Outside of her dazzling fashion statements, Cima’s slender physique makes a statement on its own. The 76-year-old is able to maintain her incredible physique by staying fit and active regularly.

In another video she posted on TikTok, she showed off her fantastic yogi skills while engaging in her daily yoga routine. Cima can bend and contort herself into different kinds of shapes and poses, showing how extremely flexible she is.

The 38-second clip revealed Cima dressed in all-black athletic attire on her yoga mat. From the cat-camel stretch to a full-blown split, she awed onlookers who were inspired to see an older woman being capable of doing such things. One viewer commented:

“You are so inspiring! I am 44 and have been following a few older women on social media to provide me with examples of graceful and healthy aging.”

Cima continues to ignore the ageist criticism dished out by haters on social media. She remains unthwarted in her efforts to empower women who may not be comfortable with aging and inspires others who look for examples to follow.

Rather, it was simply the fact that he found the child’s interaction with him highly endearing. And no wonder, since the child is only 5 years old!

When young Savannah called the emergency hotline, Bonham immediately realized that the voice on the other end of the phone was incredibly young.

His tone, already patient and soothing, doubles down as he collects the information he needs. As it turns out, Savannah’s father was struggling to breathe.

This was enough of a reason for Bonham to dispatch personnel to the scene. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

As soon as the girl was reassured that hope was on the way, her bright and spunky personality began to shine through! You can see this in the way she responds.

Additionally, the operator needs to keep tabs on the situation at hand and to advise the caller how to prepare the site for the first responders.

In Savannah’s case, to unlock the door.

Being a little girl who was now comforted by the presence of adults taking care of the situation, Savannah then frets over the fact that she will still be in pajamas when the medical team arrives and wants to get dressed!

Unfortunately, Bonham needs to have her next to her dad so she can keep an eye on him.

This, however, doesn’t mean he can’t find the young girl’s responses utterly adorable!

As cute as this all is, stories like these do raise a very important question – namely, how prepared are your children in handling an emergency?

Knowing when to call 911 and understanding what to do in specific emergency situations can save both your life and the lives of your children and spouse, so it is best to prep them thoroughly as soon as you can!
