Dating love uganda abroad
Did those FB likes do anything for the kids that are mentally scarred by what happened, and did the people “liking” and “sharing” it even know what happened?Did they realize this Invisible Children campaign was ran by people who took photos with the SPLA (who have fought against the LRA but are known for looting and rape), guns in their hands?74 people died from Al-Shabaab’s attacks and 70 more were injured. When I landed at Entebbe airport, I pictured in my head the Air France airplane hijackings during Idi Amin’s reign which landed here. Which reminds me, if you haven’t seen about Amin’s terrible rule, you really should!They are a Somalian group linked to Al-Qaeda and they were mad at Uganda… It’s actually not based on as many truths as it leads you to believe, but still gets the main point across.Keep in mind I was there two years before the viral video, KONY 2012, came out.I’m sure a couple years ago you saw the FB campaign for KONY in Uganda. Interpol/UN/other forces were already trying to catch this war criminal (who is actually operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo)?I had a cute little one-bedroom house, complete with a twin size bed and mosquito net. I took cold bucket baths every morning only to get covered in red dust the moment I stepped out of the compound and the village kids started jumping all over me (the best part of the day! The electricity was set up to the house but maybe due to rainy season, it was sporadic. Would people be panicked about more terrorist attacks? These terrorists like to make a name for themselves… I was there on Christmas and actually out at the bars in Kampala on New Years with some Ugandan women I met. I saw maybe 10 westerners in and around Kampala other than the couple I knew and another couple in my compound. There were a lot of Middle Eastern businessmen here and a couple expats. On my walks down the path of boda-bodas I would be stopped for tea, hair braiding (which I would politely decline), or to play soccer- turning my 5-minute walk into 30.Chester the German Shepherd was there to keep me safe from people and snakes alike. I loved to take walks or hop on a boda-boda for a ride across town. What I’m so used to now in India, was such a shock to me back then. I saw a married couple in a market and on NYE a journalist out at a bar. Granted, I wasn’t going to the high-end bars and restaurants in town or hanging around the embassy where the other westerners were. I went one day with the woman from my compound and paid the 10 dollars to cool off in a pool. I was warned that if someone robs me, stealing my purse or phone, I should think twice before yelling for help. The culprit is sure to be beaten to near-death or death in front of your eyes.
Massive Range Rovers (or Land Rovers, I’m not very good at car types) would slowly circle the city, loaded up with armed men- although they look so young I almost typed ‘boys’.
I saw newspapers that had photos of “Wanted Homosexuals” so I am not surprised at all about Uganda being in the news this month in regards to their stance on homosexuality.
