How to survive Valentine’s Day as a single in Kampala

Show up and do nothing but sabotage.

TOO MUCH: In this chaos, there is still you, there is still her, there is still him, the people that cannot find a Valentine’s date. Stated simply, the singles. In fact, almost everyone in Kampala is single. You can be in a relationship in Kampala and still be single. You can be married and single. It only happens in Kampala. But worry not, there are some ways to survive this Valentine’s Day…

The first months of the year are always dramatic. Life never settles down here. One moment youa re in the festive season, another moment you are dealing with the maid’s transfer season. Once you are out of the maid transfer season, you have NAM to deal with. As NAM is ongoing, you are hit with news that Pentagon will have to wait.  Then comes the heartbreaking school fees season. As you are keeping up with school fees, you are informed about the men’s conference. Then, the pending boyfriend/girlfriend transfer season. And then the mother of surprises; the realisation that you can only vote for Juma Wasswa Balunywa if you are a MUBS student.

Ugandans have now petitioned that government should quickly address this Juma Waswa Balunywa issue once and for all, we should be allowed to vote for one of our own. ‘Gitekeeyo…ekiribeera ku MUBS…’ Then in this mix, we have also come to learn of a one Baby Deo. There is too much to handle.
