Tojikwata nyo brake: A memo to Ugandan graduates

Exposure is on TikTok. What more exposure do you need?

LIFE AFTER CAMPUS: Let me stop thinking that all of you want to do this corporate life. Because it is a degree of its own. This is the lecture your university forgot. There is a way to do corporate, there is a way not to do corporate. In corporate, your boss is always right. Before you reject your boss’ idea, you will have to first try it out,if it implodes, that is when your boss will have some sanity to listen.

Our Ugandan graduates, the mighty ones, the resilient ones, those that made it out of the crucible, this is to say ‘congratulations’. Now that you have graduated, there is no doubt you have been built for harder things. That you survived the retakes at university, the endless handouts, and even the roomie that made you sleep in a tree.

The world you are entering borders on even harder survival tactics. If you doubt, look within the names of Ugandan music artistes. You have  the Alien Skins, Chameleones, Gravity Omutujju, there is no peace where you are coming. It is a world of give me space. There is no door to open, but there are walls to break down.

As your uncle or aunt promised heaven on earth at that graduation party, consider it all lies.
