My neighbour was of Indian descent…
Firsts: I chose to break my Uganda Airlines virginity. Again, I had vowed to keep a distance from our ‘airline’ when it was in the news. But I turned back on these words. I realised I may not agree with management, but I agree with the concept of Uganda Airlines. And thus, I made my maiden flight on our Bombadier.
It all started on Friday. I volunteered at a certain not-for-profit organisation and was invited to pitch at the Innovation Consortium in Bweyogerere. On any other Friday evening, I would have been somewhere following the rules of a certain friend. On Fridays, this friend reverts to a hedonistic philosophy. It treads on the lines of ‘we count what has entered the body.’ Basically, the only thing you really own is that which you move with. All else, belongs to the world.
Anyway, I could not turn down the opportunity to be subjected to a panel of intelligent young men and women as they dissected this idea of a not-for-profit before they could release some funding. The questions were tough, but the conversations were lucid, the kind that transcends ‘emeere ya leero.’ We all agreed, we had to put a brick on this concept called ‘Uganda’. That no one was going to build this concept, we had to play an active part in the formation.
