Dreams of Rweshande, Project 2026 and Masaka’s Independence

Adventures. I have circled in and out of Mbarara nightlife, but an old man once gave me a tip; ‘always claim to be new to a city.’ In that way, you get a chance to be shown some of the city’s best kept secrets. Although I had been to all the night places which I was taken to, I got a chance to see them with new eyes.

Two weeks ago, I drove all the way to Rweshande to attend a friend’s kuhingira. For those uninitiated about Uganda, to get to Rweshande, you can take a turn at Lyantonde and take the Kaguta Road. Now, I am not one to fear long distances. The best driving experiences in Uganda will always happen on the highways. And yes, functions out of town are an opportunity to have a road trip experience.

But then, a week earlier, this road had claimed the life of my great friend and his lovely family. To combat this risk, I made it clear that I was not giving anyone a lift. I was going to face this road alone and thus have a solo road trip. Given that yours truly is yet to shoot any shot, he was ready to die with his family intact.
