A 57 year-old Ugandan story

Lilly Ajerova

By Our Reporter

It has been a 57year-old affair. It started with ‘discoveries’ by explorers and soothed into a full blown colonial system. After nearly a century, Great Britain would give Uganda rights to make its own political decisions and basically govern themselves. And yes, Independence Day in Uganda has been a state holiday celebrated on October 9 every year since 1962.

TAKE A SEAT IN KARAMOJONG STYLE .

By Our Staff

Since its inception, the chair morphed into shapes, fascinating shapes. But as you sit on your comfy couch in your sitting room today after a long day at work, in Karamoja, people swiftly sit on wooden stools after, well, a long day in the field. It’s the way of life. And the Karamajong have an attachment to these wooden stools. To them the T shaped master piece curved off tamarind trees, they are all they have.

The expansive Old Kampala Mosque

By Our staff

Though it boasts of a 200-year-lifespan, this will be a brief one, albeit a must read. See, the Old Kampala Mosque, is one of the places you must visit whilst out here in the City. For most adventurers in pursuit for religious tourism, it is just right— offering a sophisticated taste of elegance, architecture and brilliant artistic inscriptions from all the six continents of the world.

It’s Malwa time, aka Ajono!

By view Uganda

Time check: 8:00PM. Location: Nsambya. You dear folks can call this, time for Malwa aka Ajono. Or what you fancy people will call a millet, maize or sorghum brew, it sits okay. A group of men leisurely amble into a reed enclosure that is slightly thrown out of the barracks. Inside the enclosure sits a group of about 18 men and women around a pot of frothy local brew, commonly referred to as Malwa.

Kagulu hill: The Icing on Busoga’s cakey tourism

The memory of climbing Kagulu hill stays arched in our brains. See, just like the Great Wall of China, climbing the rocky Kagulu Hill might look easy on the eye but quite the opposite. Standing at 3,600ft above sea level, Kagulu Hill is found in Buyende District (Busoga Kingdom) about 30kms from Kamuli Town in Eastern Uganda.

The perfect mwenge bigele: A tale of brewing, feet and culture

By Our Reporter

Mwenge Bigele. Get drunk on a ripe banana beverage, or just bask in the glory that is the Buganda culture. Like its name suggests, the brewing process involves stepping.  Mwenge is alcohol, Bigele is feet. But first, let me tell you about Ssalongo Kasanvu Kakeeto.

Fantastic offers at Brovad sands lodge , Samuka Island Jinja , Simba safaris in Queen Elizabeth.
