Jacob and I (III)

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: Like in the movies, it is only after giving up all I had that the rose-tinted glasses fell from my eyes and I finally saw the man for what he was. And boy was I shocked! So my Jacob actually wasn't an angel. His halo had morphed into a disheveled afro. The spark in his […]

Jacob and I (II)

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: The most cliché sayings are also always the truest. Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it. On the Saturday that Jacob invited me to his house for dinner, I had been waiting for his call. I obviously agreed. I tried to convince myself that it was just dinner, but I […]

Jacob and I

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: Few things are harder than forgiving oneself, especially for breaking, to no gain, a promise that was meant to be kept. I know this, but I still make promises, to myself as well as to others, and keep breaking those promises. When I vowed to keep myself sexually pure until marriage, I was serious about […]

Meeting the Navigators

By Nick Twinamatsiko: I was a Makerere University fresher, and had come to St. Francis Chapel for an orientation week fellowship, when I met Edward. I think (perhaps with a touch of vanity) that I was one of the most well-read teenagers in the country, and one of the most ambitious. In the just-ended vacation, I had read The Picture […]

Never again (1)

By Mpuga Rukidi: Everyone was quiet. You could drop a pin and hear it make all roundabouts before it decided to settle, and be quiet like the rest of the people inside the derelict, 1923 erected sub county headquarters-cum courtroom. You could feel and touch the tension. It was the day judgment was to be delivered. Everyone sat spellbound, like […]

A few good men

By Owuor Kuyoh: On my way to and from work every weekend, I almost always stumble onto the same scenario. A mother, with a child on her back, and three or four other kids in successive height and age – if they stand next to each other they form a flight of stairs…and when they walk hand in hand…you guessed […]

Gather to work

By John Gyasi Banin: It is that time of your life when almost anything is possible to you. Life is before you like an open book with no prints. What story is told is totally dependent on you. Like a vast fertile land in the forests, so also is the story of your life now. What fruits shall be, is […]

Times have changed

By Aaron Aroriza: Times have changed. My aunt just doesn't get it. And neither do most people in her generation. So she had a Christmas present for me – a suitor, that's what she called her. Someone who, in my aunt's opinion and judging from the word itself, perfectly suits me. Rose is a beautiful girl alright, and that's about […]

Growing up

By Angela Basanya: I now understand why the pastors insisted on character. I only agreed then because I didn't have much of a choice but now I agree because I have tested and seen. The rest of this narrative will reveal the things I now believe because I have had the misfortune/fortune of experience and not because the pastor said. […]
