In Kampala, everyone is on some drug

We need to get a beer named ‘Kampala’…

KAMPALA IS A MOVIE! You cannot approach Kampala on nothing. You need something, even if it is coffee. Although I must argue, Kampala itself is a drug. It is a rare kind of drug… the only way to survive Kampala is to be half-awake/half-asleep. If you are fully awake, Kampala will traumatise you. You must watch Kampala with a ka-side eye. You watch it from a corner. It is unbelievable that Kampala is a concoction of everything.

Amos Wekesa used to ask: ‘What is your drug?’ He argued that no human being survived through the mundanity of existence without some drug. That everyone needed a drug to function. Some outlets, some release. For him then, his drug was jogging (at least the one he declared to us). I do not think men always declare their actual drugs.

But with the way Kampala is moving, I am now convinced that Wekesa’s theory holds. You cannot raw dog the Kampala experience. You cannot approach Kampala on nothing. You need something, even if it is coffee. Although I must argue, Kampala itself is a drug. It is a rare kind of drug.

If you want to know the drug that is Kampala, try any of the Kampala round-abouts during peak hours.
