The Pan-African Pyramid is an intellectual non-partisan discussion forum built on the pillars of pan-Africanism, patriotism and nationalism whose ideal/pre-occupation is to revive intellectual discourse among the youths with a bias of re-constructing our lost pan-Africanism, patriotism and nationalism values and spirit.
As the Organisation celebrates its 2nd Anniversary with a Bon-Fire Dinner, plans are underway to launch the First ever Pan-African Pyramid Global Awards aimed at recognising strong believers in Pan-Africanism.
South African based Ugandan Evelyn Bright who also doubles as the CEO of Levyn Africa based in S. Africa and Kenya jetted in the country on Wednesday afternoon, straight away headed to the venue at Fairway Hotel Gardens and summoned all the decorators that had been locally sourced.
There was a little drama when Evelyn told off organisers that she wasn’t satisfied with their work and that she had moved with her own team of experts from South Africa ready to take up the challenge.
“Excuse me, this is not a wedding ceremony where the bride and groom choose their favourite colours for decoration, we are dealing with our culture,” she was heard saying.
Whereas the Ugandan team was at first scared they lost money in buying some decoration and still perplexed about the loss of contract, the no nonsense executive rushed to a nearby Forex Burea inside the Hotel, exchanged her dollars, came back, paid them off their total sum and told them to ‘get lost’.
She then started giving her S.African team new instructions on hwo to decorate.
Among the decoration items, 90% must be African fruits of all types.
One of the committee members, Andrew Irumba, was sent to Tooro to hunt for some of the fruits grown in Africa.
The event seeks to recognise positive contributors in society in different walks of life.
These include; politicians, Sports personalities, Artistes, Radio personalities, TV personalities, Writers, Movie personalities.
“Two thousand and Sixteen years later since the coming of Jesus Christ, the African is still looking up to his former colonial master to organize for him an award to recognize him for fighting and defending their rights across the world,” Evelyn said.
She added: “In these Awards, we have short-term, mid-term and long-term strategic plans, where we intend to bring to Uganda families of world’s renown Pan-Africanists like Martin Luther King jnr, Khalid Muhammad, Nelson Mandela, Louis Farrakhan, Malcolm X, Presidents, former presidents, cultural leaders and social leaders who outstandingly contributed to the struggle of Black people’s Rights and Freedoms globally thru’ the ‘gospel’ of Pan-Africanism.”
This Award that will be covered live by WBS TV has also been supported by Red Pepper, Splash, Fairway Hotel, Levyn Africa, Beaconneqt, Mika Group among others.
