In praise of Ugandan time

The haggling, the sweet endearments, the lugambo…

Late: Ugandan time is the glue that holds every aspect of Ugandan culture together. Without Ugandan time, we lose our inclusiveness. Because with Ugandan time, everyone is accommodated. With Ugandan time, we can accord our politicians the necessary recognition at functions. If our politicians arrived in ‘western time’, they would find no one to receive them.

Most of our suffering in life is self-afflicted. We try to become what we shall never be. We aspire for values we don’t believe in. We spend our entire life trying to be that which is in direct conflict with our real self. And we wonder, why are we sad? Why won’t we be sad? We are trying to be normal in societies of mad men.

And that was me with Ugandan time. I hated everything to do with Ugandan time. Whenever I had a chance, I would whip those who believed or acted according to Ugandan time. I kept arguing that it would be easier for Bukedea to become the next Rwakitura than for Uganda to develop based on our loyalty to Ugandan time.
