Should we tell people that we love them?

“…those three words, are said too much, they are not enough…” Chasing cars-Snow Patrol

I love this song. I love many songs, each for a different reason, some because they bring back memories and others simply because they sound beautiful. This particular one is because I agree with the lines in the song. I bet the words they were talking about here even though it wasn’t explicitly pointed out was “I love you”. I agree with the fact that they are said way too much and yet are they ever enough. Are they even necessary?

A good friend of mine once wrote on her bucket list, “Love the man I will marry” and even though I did not express it then, I though that was a defeatist view of life. A kind of settling. I am glad to announce that three years later, she is happily married and no she…

YORO is uglish for YOLO

Posted on Updated on


I am not sure whether it is the times in which I have grown up and the ideals that were popularized during my youth, or that we have always battled with these internal struggles regardless of the era, but too many young people seem to be torn between two paths of life. One path involves possessing an inordinately acute awareness of the fleeting nature of life and how suddenly one can cease to exist, thus promoting notions of spontaneity and ‘living life to the fullest’. In it’s most reductive form, this philosophy can be condensed into one universal four-letter acronym: “YOLO”. Of course, this is an extreme description. Most people jump onto the YOLO wagon only occasionally, usually on the weekend, or when life seems like it has lost all meaning, or has become too much of a burden to bear.

The second path is the one that taunts these…

Are you employable?

Invest in Personal Improvement..


Waking up is the best thing next to eating, the thought of food can be overrated but so is the smell of it. Life, has many things to offer apart from love, sadness and happiness. Ours is a world of transformation, the age of diversity, socialism and multiple freedoms. Everything we do is a result of our own choices, and so is unemployment. But the main question in line is, are you employable? Can you be employed? I have come to realise that it’s nolonger about the weight of the CV, and I have come to terms with it.

Last week, I was interviewing Makerere University graduates for a management job, I was shocked by the fact that none was qualified enough for the job. I am just a first year student who is less than 2 decades old, I have no degree and my CV is still weak but…

Ugandans, re-arrange Ebola to spell opportunity

Posted on Updated on

Proudly Ugandan..


Please bear with the ebolised focus; this disease is like that. It takes over your mind, your every waking thought, and you eventually succumb.

But before it kills us all, you guys need to get up and smell the handwash detergents. Ebola can be spelt O.P.P.O.R.T.U.N.I.T.Y.!

Seriously, guys, stop whining and dying and pay a little bit of attention here because there is serious money to be made doing the following:

1. For Ugandans, start with the fact that we kicked Ebola soundly out of the country many years ago and proved that we are the most bad-ass at kicking Ebola’s ass (you need to use Americanisms like that because the main target market for what we are about to start selling will be the Americans). Get the entire world talking about how seriously we handled the disease the first-time round so that the world looks at us with a seriously newfound…

Yellow Pigs or Employment?

Posted on Updated on

“What can we do to help you give us?”



Today I woke up to yet another story of the yellow pigs parade in Kampala. This is the third time pigs painted in yellow are being dropped at different spots in Uganda’s capital since June this year when two youth, Norman Tumuhimbise and Ronald Mayanja beat the security at Parliament letting in two yellow painted pigs. Just last month, the same group of youth who prefer to refer to themselves as the “Jobless Brotherhood” claimed responsibility for second edition of the yellow pigs parade on Kampala Road near the seven billion KCCA leisure park, when they hand-cuffed themselves and walked to the central police station and asked to be detained. I have no doubt that the same group of young people are behind today’s edition of the yellow pigs stunt at Makerere University.

Pigs are known to be greedy animals which eat anything and everything they come about…
