Ebola victim in the Republic of Sierra Leone

Was scientist Johan van Dongen chasing the origin of Aids or was it Ebola? Because when Tony Barnett and Piers Blaikie in 1992, studied AIDS in Uganda, they came to a conclusion with the publication of their report “AIDS in Africa: Its Present and Future Impact.

During their investigation several small outbreaks of Ebola appeared and they could not have imagined that their predictions over a period of ten years would also be dramatically be investigated by Johan van Dongen, because the literature about both diseases reveals so much that in Johan’s brain connection was made to reveal the truth of both horrible infections.

Tony and Piers argued then that within ten years the number of AIDS-related deaths,  the best and worst case scenarios in the age group from15 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 they have been, or competencies are in no way connected to an existing order.

If you appeal to these people, it appears that the prognosis was said to be adjusted upwards to be forty to forty- five 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, but do the ordinary people aware of all those facts?

Normally, from out of the blue a young infant of two, or others in the so-called remote areas contract Ebola. After the epidemic, a contaminated African from Western Africa travels to Mali in 2014 and died there, because she contracted the Ebola in Liberia. So, at the moment this autobiography is being written, we don’t know what is going to happen in Mali, after the child’s death.

But about twenty years before these horror events Eva Birungi and Pross Musagara in the mid-nineties, weren’t aware of Ebola because they have to deal with the devastation that aids which have ruined their communities and the African continent.

An ordinary day in Kampala Uganda

In the Mid-nineties, somewhere in a school in Kampala, let’s say May 11, 1995, three years after the statements of Tony Barnett and Piers Blaikie, at school, Eva Birungi carried a bench with her friend Pross Musagara and placed it under a shady tree for about an hour studying the disease AIDS. They had talked about their famous compatriot singer and 'songwriter' Philly Lutaaya, and both are unanimous that their idol is just as good as Bruce Springsteen.

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 therefore considered doomed and outcast.

In the early nineties, it wasn’t easy for many to announce publicly that they have contracted Aids, because of the stigma that follows. They are completely ignored or even put on the street and abandoned. Eva and Pross had no idea what was going on at that time in the city of Kikwit in neighboring Zaire.

Eva Birungi and Pross Musagara

The students studying about Aids looked 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. The senior Serwadda knows of the worse scenario figures President Yoweri Museveni had received in 1991, from Western scientists.

So he may, as a seasoned skeptic and supporter of the ‘worse scenario’ these students now stumped up that new figure hoping for a better 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”, he said.

Although the incidence of HIV infection has decreased in urban areas by far, currently more people die of AIDS than people with AIDS walking around with it. What he wasn’t told by the Belgian scientist Bogaards, is 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 is called by the missionaries in 1982, and in the same year there was the first demonstration in the Rakai district. 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 SV40.

Bogaards never mentioned the resistance lowering spread of fungi mycotoxins, which effect is comparable to the radioactive fallout in the Sub-Saharan Countries. Mycotoxins that have been scattered to make people aggressive and the Hutus, Tutsis and Belgian commandos became victims of these criminal actions.

Especially the Belgians became like wild beasts, as one of the Belgian commandos urinates onto a dead Hutu, which allows me to write the retina. Serwadda also didn’t explain why the shoal of fish in Lake Victoria has lumpy cancers because they swam through biological warfare products with rainwater in the same pond they have ended.

Marburg or Ebola Virus in Zaire and Uganda

Since no one is looking up for frequent disease outbreaks in Africa, Eva and Pross acted like everybody else because they are used to it. Nevertheless, Thursday on May11, 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 is hermetically sealed. The world’s largest quarantine area was declared.

The mysterious Ebola virus after years had struck again, this time in the city of Kikwit. About 600,000 inhabitants were at that moment in a gruesome situation because out of the blue 170 persons succumbed to the infection of the Ebola virus, including Masengo, a town 120 km west of Kikwit, affected at the same time. There were deaths to mourn.

The governor of Kinshasa, Bernadin Mungul Diaka, apparently feared that the epidemic could spread. He expelled six million inhabitants to leave the area, making history to repeat itself. The virus was completely identical to the Marburg virus; however, since the epidemic broke out near the river, scientists gave the virus the name of that stream as Ebola River.

To this very day scientists still talk about it, the fact that there were two different viruses, but the only difference in the virus produced in Germany is the location, Marburg or Ebola River.

Wolff Geisler a German medical doctor

Just before the outbreak of the Ebola epidemic in Kikwit, major changes in mosquito population around Lake Victoria were identified and there was a strong suspicion that deliberately infected yellow fever mosquitoes from Kenya were flown into Uganda.

Three western research teams from the American Rockefeller Foundation, the British East African Virus Research Institute, and the French Institute Pasteur, decided to investigate this phenomenon in greater detail. It seemed very worthy to investigate how yellow fever-infected mosquitoes were able to spread over a large continent. It is very likely that the massive mosquito phenomenon took place in the context of biological warfare.

Therefore Johan van Dongen would like to point out to the German scientist Wolff Geisler, who carried out an enormous extensive literature research on this phenomenon. In 1994, he described extensive 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 had been carried out with infectious diseases in Uganda and Zaire.

In the latter country, in the Bandundu region, also Kuru, a disease called ‘Bovine spongiform Synonym encephalopathy BSE or mad cow disease,’ was also 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 without ceasing.

Fidel Castro

When Museveni was in power in Uganda, he sent large numbers of its troops to Cuba for military training. But he had no idea that equally large number of the military force would be returned back to Uganda by Fidel Castro because they were HIV positive. Yoweri Museveni knew he has to do something to avoid a catastrophe in this country, otherwise, in 2050, no Ugandans will be left alive.

He, therefore, called for a nationwide crusade campaign, including all politicians and many national celebrities. Since then along the main road from the Kampala's airport 'Billboards' that promote abstinence from dangerous sex, marital fidelity and the use of condoms were recommended. King Ronnie Mutebi, in his country Buganda, one of the five kingdoms of Uganda, actively travelled around spreading the awareness of the Aids disease.

We now know that those things didn’t help at all because AIDS carved a devastating and ruthless railroad throughout Uganda.  The AIDS-stricken nation tainted the famous quote from Sir Winston Churchill; “Uganda the pearl of Africa,” to “The dead black pearls.”

Phase Ib Ebola/Marburg vaccine clinical trial begins

On November 12, 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 the simultaneous administration of the Ebola and Marburg vaccines, which were 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 had been very positive.

The study was designed to enroll 108 volunteers, and already nearly 200 people had 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.
