Check out this whiny rant from that woman, Kembabazi, a former employee of Uganda’s pit latrine publication, the Red Pepper. She repeatedly set up a slimy page on Facebook and had it shut down seven times because it was propagating hate. I blogged about it four days ago, and prayed that something be done to shut it down for good. Facebook has heard the prayers, shut down the site and closed Kembabazi’s account for good measure.
It would appear that the heat has finally got to Arinaitwe Rugyendo’s protegé, Kembabazi, and she has decided to buckle under due to the activist pressure.
Money [edited] whine from her [now removed] blog:
Things come and go, before Facebook we had tagged.com and MySpace.com, yahoo’s chat was very popular then, but all those are history now as everybody has embraced Facebook. Who knows, even Facebook will go and something more interesting will come up. And trust human beings, just like we left the others, we will abandon you and your miserable boys and move on to something more free, more captivating and less dictating … I will not try to sign up for Facebook, though I know I can (I am that smart, trust me), however, I will look at other ways of doing what I do in such a way that will still reach my fans. I will not lie there and let my brilliant idea die because a bunch of idiots are against me. I am not like that….so you can go to hell with your Facebook.
Do I detect a whiff of sour grapes there? Smart? Does the above rant sound like the voice of a smart person? No, I didn’t think so either.
Now, please let’s go for her on piece of trash on Blogger. Watch out for any hateful, incendiary, murderous, toxic articles on her blog and let’s report them. Please don’t tire of reporting. Eventually, Blogger will take note and act.
UPDATE: JANUARY 9, 2013: HER BLOG HAS ALSO BEEN REMOVED!
