By Johan van Dongen, Nijmegen the Netherlands –When Tony Barnett and Piers Blaikie in 1992, study AIDS in Uganda came to a conclusion with the publication of their report “AIDS in Africa: Its Present and Future Impact,” they could not have imagined that their predictions over a period of ten years would be so dramatic be traced. They argued then that within ten years the number of AIDS-related deaths a best and worst case scenarios in the age group 15 to 50 years will be somewhere between 7.2% and 28.8%. Now demographic models have a tendency to be politically colored so it is wise to approach people in the area have been, or competences are in no way connected to an existing order. And if you appeal to these people, it appears that the prognosis was said to be adjusted upwards to be 40 to 45 percent of the Ugandan population within ten years from the beginning of the third millennium. According To Western scientists the worst case scenario has become reality.
An ordinary day in Kampala, Uganda
Mid-nineties somewhere on a school in Kampala let’s say May 11th, 1995 three years after the statements of Tony Barnett and Piers Blaikie, Eva Birungi carries, with her friend Pross Musagara, a bench outside her school and places it under a shady tree for about an hour teaching the disease AIDS. They speak about their famous compatriot singer and “songwriter” Philli Lutaaya and both are unanimous that their idol is just as good as Bruce Springsteen. And they also know that this AIDS-deceased singer has had the guts to be the first celebrity in Uganda to admit that he has become infected with the AIDS virus and it was therefore doomed. In the early nineties it was a very bold statement, since people in those countries with a venereal or HIV disease were in the neck looked. They are completely ignored or even put on the street and abandoned. Eva and Pross have no idea what was at that time in the city of Kikwit in neighboring Zaire playing.
Marburg or Ebola virus in Zaire and Uganda
Since no one is looking for up for frequent disease outbreaks in Africa, Eva and Pross acted like everybody else because they get used to it. Nevertheless, there was this Thursday in May on the 11th in the year 1995 to be exact, a shock wave went through the world when the Zairian authorities announced that the border between the capital Kinshasa and Bandundu region everyone was hermetically sealed, and thus to the world’s largest quarantine area was declared. The mysterious Ebola virus after years had struck again, this time in the city of Kikwit. Of the 600,000 inhabitants were at that moment in a gruesome situation because out of the blue 170 persons succumbed to the effects of an infection with the Ebola virus. Also Masengo, a town 120 km west of Kikwit, was affected at the same time. There were three deaths to mourn. The governor of Kinshasa, Bernadin Mungul Diaka was apparently feared that the epidemic would spread because he banned the six million inhabitants of the region to leave the area, with which history is painfully repetitive. The virus is completely identical with the Marburg virus; however, since the epidemic broke out near the Ebola River scientists gave the virus the name of that stream. And to this very day scientist’s talk hot air with the fact that there are two different viruses, but the only difference in the virus produced in Germany is the location, Marburg or Ebola River.
Eva Birungi and Pross Musagara
After Eve and Pross have put down their bench, and besides them some twenty other students sit, they look intently at their instructor Dr. David Serwadda of the Public Health Institute in Kampala and supervisor of the population in Rakai, a town in the Rakai district of Lake Victoria. These senior Serwadda know of course on the “worse case scenario figures” who is President Yoweri Museveni in 1991 has received from Western scientists. So he may, as a seasoned skeptic and supporter of the “worse case scenario, these students now stump up that new figures give hope for the future. The negative spiral of AIDS, he said, slowly bend. Because the number of HIV positive in the sexually active population of Rakai in 1988, 12 percent in May 1996, according to him at that day was only 10%. Serwadda: “However, we have no overview of what is happening in small towns,” so he adds. Although the incidence of HIV infection, the disease has decreased in urban areas this far but that there are currently more people die of AIDS than people with AIDS walking around with.
What he was not told by the Belgian scientist Bogaards that his country has the dubious honor of being the first country in the world to be confronted to the full extent of the AIDS problem. Slim disease or poor disease as the condition in 1982 is mentioned by missionaries, namely in the same year was first demonstrated in the Rakai district. And he even recalls the fact that over forty million people in the countries surrounding Lake Victoria have been vaccinated with vaccines containing the deadly virus contained SV40. Nor Bogaards never mentioned the resistance lowering spread of fungi, mycotoxins, whose effect is comparable to the radioactive fallout, in the Sub-Saharan Countries. Mycotoxins that have been scattered to make people aggressive, and of these criminal actions were Hutu, Tutsi and Belgian commando’s victims. Especially the Belgians went into wild beasts because a Belgian commando was pissing onto a dead Hutu which allows me to write the retina. Serwadda also not explains why there are huge schools of fish in Lake Victoria with lumpy cancers because they swim through biological warfare products with rainwater in the same pond have ended.
Wolff Geisler a German scientist
Just before the outbreak of the epidemic in Kikwit, major changes in mosquito populations around Lake Victoria were identified and there was a strong suspicion that deliberately yellow fever infected mosquitoes from Kenya to Uganda were flown. Three western research teams from the American Rockefeller Foundation, the British East African Virus Research Institute and the French Institut Pasteur, decided to investigate this phenomenon in greater detail. It seemed them very worthwhile to investigate how yellow fever-infected mosquitoes over a large continent were able to spread. That the massive mosquito phenomenon took place in the context of biological warfare, it is highly likely. Therefore I would like to point to the German scientist Wolff Geisler who carried out an extensive literature research on this phenomenon. In 1994 he described extensive and deliberate contaminations and poisoning of people with contaminated vaccines with toxic agents. Geisler showed that, repeatedly commissioned by Western governments and famous international institutes, thorough scientific experiments have been carried out with infectious diseases in Uganda and Zaire. In the latter country, in the Bandundu region, also Kuru, bovine spongiform Synonym encephalopathy BSE or mad cow disease’, was detected. But as far as the Ebola and HIV awareness is concerned it is business as usual. Germany, France and America have produced a vaccine against Ebola and decide to distribute the vaccine among healthy adults in Kampala, Uganda. Using black-skinned volunteers, for whom she will never stop (see reference *)
Since in Uganda Museveni came to power, he sent large numbers of its troops to Cuba for military training. But he had never believed that equally large numbers by Fidel Castro would be returned because they were HIV positive. When his friend Fidel, Yoweri for a catastrophe in his country warned, the latter is realized that the problem should be tackled seriously because otherwise in 2050 no Ugandans will be left. Therefore he developed growing into a nationwide crusade campaign which all politicians and many national celebrities participating. Since then there are along the main road from the Kampalese airport “billboards” that promote abstinence from dangerous sex, marital fidelity and the use of condoms recommend. And as King Ronnie Mutebi in his country Buganda, one of the five kingdoms of Uganda, traveling around this ends his speeches invariably a discussion about the disease AIDS.
We now know those things didn’t help at all, because AIDS draws a devastating and ruthless railroad throughout Uganda. This by the AIDS-stricken nation devil quite with the remains of the famous quote from Sir Winston Churchill; “Uganda the pearl of Africa”, would be just talk about dead black pearls.
*Phase Ib Ebola/Marburg Vaccine Clinical Trial Begins
On the 12th November 2009 the MHRP began a collaborative Phase Ib study to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of Ebola and Marburg DNA plasmid vaccines in healthy adults in Kampala, Uganda. This study, called RV247, is a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study that will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of two recombinant DNA vaccines: one against Ebola virus and one against Marburg virus infections. A second part of the study will evaluate simultaneous administration of the Ebola and Marburg vaccines, which are evaluated independently in part one. Principal Investigator Dr. Hannah Kibuuka, with the Makerere University Walter Reed Project, and her team started vaccinating volunteers. Community interest in the trial has been very positive. The study is designed to enroll 108 volunteers, and already nearly 200 people have signed up for screening. This is the first Ebola/Marburg vaccine clinical trial to be conducted in Africa. Initial Phase I studies of the vaccine candidates were conducted by the NIAID Vaccine Research Center Clinical Trials Core (Protocol VRC 206) at the NIH in Bethesda, Maryland.
