A letter to Diana (continued)

By Namuli Batuuka: Looking back at senior 2, I can proudly say that was my best year in high school. I performed exceptionally well throughout the school year. Auntie was more than happy and she knew that mother was now smiling down at me. Even though I was happy with my grades, I missed you dearly. I would secretly look […]

A letter to Diana

By Namuli Batuuka: Dear Diana, I heard that you are on your third pregnancy and you are having twins. Congratulations! How time flies! Just 10 years ago, we were in Senior 1, carefree and eager to embrace “teenagehood”. I remember we were both top students, coming from the traditional yet well-rounded primary schools built by the missionaries back then. We […]

I just want to be loved!

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: Caitlin Moran said it right, “So much of being a woman is keeping secrets.” Nobody needs to smell your scent or see your stains; you can't let anyone know what you feel inside, else you'll become a social pariah. To many a modern woman, this has risen to scary levels; you cannot let a man […]

Even when she is suffering, going through hell, a woman has all the power in the world only if she bears all without a single peep from her mouth. That is the message the traditional woman holds on to, and passes on dutifully to her young daughters. It […]

She revisited

By Iteti: Writing is awesome! Why? It jogs my memory; takes me back to things, people and places long forgotten – verses, prose, decisions, resolutions. It reminds me of the things I was thinking way back when I seemed to have a clearer head than I do now. It reminds me of the woman I aspired to be back then, […]

My part in her story

By Kathryn Mweupe Yule Kazibwe: In life we make lots of connections. Those lost along the way are not always wrong. They are simply lost links whose lessons it is upon us to decipher. I recently ran into a long lost friend of mine. It took me a while to recognize the beauty who practically shouted my name as I […]

The Day You Left

By Iteti: The Lady The day she let herself go; it was the day a man she trusted tore her favourite dress, the yellow one with red and pink roses running down the front. He ripped it open, buttons scattering all over the floor, pieces of fabric hanging from her pale and delicate body; whispered threats of a violent death […]

Made in China

By Ragi Bashonga: She is a working woman. An aura of intellect and expensive education envelopes her like heavy perfume and leaves a trail of success. She carries herself with the posture of a queen, her dress code bearing witness that in actual fact she could well be one. Her wardrobe strongly resembles the expensive boutiques she visits on the […]
