The internet wins: Mbarara’s ‘Fallopian tubes’ finally taken down


There was a mass uproar on social media when new pictures of the Mbarara-Masaka Road roundabout surfaced on social media. New and modern artistic designs had been erected and were covering the famous cow.

This landmark cow had, however, been in a poor state for some time. The horns on the statue were broken, and its shape was slowly descending from that of a cow.

But social media was not impressed with this new development and #BringBackOurCow immediately begun trending. Very soon Airtel came out to say that they had a hand in the roundabout’s new infamous Fallopian tube-like designs.


Now Mbarara municipal council has finally removed the new designs that covered the traditional Long-horned Ankole cow after municipal councilors on Tuesday ordered the contractor to remove it with immediate effect.

A cross section of people from Ankole created a WhatsApp group named Restore Rusiina were relieved after seeing Abubakar technical services pull down the designs they had erected at the roundabout which had covered the Ankole cow.

‘’When you to Lira there is Rhino, Tororo there is a lion, and in Mbarara we have been having a cow now that they have removed their designs, we are now happy.’’  Said Bright Muhumuza a resident of Mbarara

Mr Muhumuza said Mbarara has so many things to look at other than lighting the road yet people are still suffering with lack of safe water.


‘’The problem of Mbarara is not lights on the roundabout. We have a wide range of problems which is not limited to garbage, electricity, water, land grabbing, street children. So all those problems you cannot give lights priority when they are still there, ‘’ said Mr Muhumuza.
