Why Good Girls fall for Bad Boys (Part 2)

By Musanete Sakupwanya: And to finish off this lovely picture I'll give you two more reasons why good girls fall for bad boys. Deep breath everybody: FACT: Good girls know what to reject, but also want to be 'pursued', and are therefore terrible at rejecting! Any guy knows (ladies please listen) that persistence will kick the butt out of any […]

Jacob and I (IV)

By Kathryn Yule Mweupe Kazibwe: It took Jacob a week to remember me; seven long days during which I waited eagerly for his call. They don't say the first cut is the deepest for nothing! Even after his less-than-poetic treatment of me, I subconsciously held the hope that maybe there was some truth in those poems he wrote me. Yes, […]

Never Again (2)

By Mpuga Rukidi: When I entered the room, grandma' had a huge look of guilt, the first time I had ever seen such a look on her face. She quickly told me not to worry, and that everything was going to be fine. In retrospect I can safely say if I had not entered the room in the nick of […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
