The whole country is defaced by multinationals like Coca-cola, Pepsi, DSTV, etc. which went so far to paint almost all streets, venues, and even private houses into their brands colors, logos and advertising. Very sickening.
Uganda is a a rich country, 40 millions people, but poverty and misery is everywhere. The country lacks even the most basic transportation infrastructure, but the roads are crowded with smoking second hand cars making it almost impossible to move around.
Mismanagement and corruption are nakedly visible at every corner. People carrying guns are even in Hotels, and the most visible vehicles are the military pickups loaded with men dressed like in Sci-fi movies.
Young boys are recruited in droves to go to die in Irak as contractors, and thousands of young girls are abducted every year to the middle east emirates to serve as homeworkers or prostitutes.
In front of all the challenges, the political power seemed completely detached from the daily life of people, and has handed the country to foreign people who owned all the economy but don’t care to invest back into the country.
The whole country looks like a slum, except here and there where live some rich humanitarian UN expats, indian merchants communities, and few local rich subalterns.
I left Uganda two months ago with a lot of pain in my heart. How such a country could be fixed?
