A flooding Kampala should worry us all

By Caroline Ariba

I watched with a pained heart as pictures of a flooding Kampala sauntered back and forth on the various social media streets. Like most of our realities, these had soon been turned into memes, hilarious memes. Boda-boda riders and obviously desperate passengers ploughing through the murky waters was a hit. But once you put the jokes aside, and looked at the floods as a real problem, it was not funny. Not one bit!

If the weekend were a bird in Uganda

The weekend is upon us, and for the birders, wouldn’t it be nice to try and see what the weekend would look like for the birds? Not that they would care for a weekend, but just to imagine what the weekend would like if it were a bird! Right? It would definitely sound like, Tee-tiyoo-tee… Tee-tyer-tyii… Tyoowi-tyee… Tee-teeyoo-tyoowi… Tay-tiyoo-tay. Yeah?

The beauty of a bird, like a fabric, is in its feathers. However, what screams beauty other than an enchanting colour, right? These birds adorn colours so beautiful they could strut through the runway with such ease. And guess what, some of them which we shall now list are found right here in Uganda.

A Shoebill-affair in Uganda

To quote the urban youth: “It is not a looker”. Not one bit! How the shoebill stork, (often just called the shoebill), which should be nowhere near the list of the most sought after birds then becomes one of the most sought after birds becomes bedazzling! Oh yes it really is. Not only does it feature in the list of beauties, it actually tops it.

LETABA: THE LION WE NEEDED BUT KILLED

By Our reporter

The day was Saturday, April the 18th-2015 when Letaba the lion first landed in Uganda. The Uganda Wildlife Education Center (UWEC) would tell of the joy that defined the moment. A then 6-year old Letaba, a donation to Uganda by the Lion Park- South Africa had arrived to help save the Lion numbers from dwindling. Glee laced every word that came out of UWEC in that it could have been mistaken for the arrival of a human king.
