Budapest Chronicles: Eating time

By Brian Friday Bwesigye It is 1305 hours, the thing inside wants the thing in the pot (ekyomunda nikyenda ekyomunyungu). Prof. Roger O’Keefe’s class starts at 1330 hours and dude keeps his time!

The Maid’s Son: Cast out the demon, not the possessed!

Illusions of a Bachelor: Sunday School and “Murder”

By Aaron Aroriza: 'God, this pastor doesn't respect Sunday. He spends it doing house work at my girl's, sorry his fiancée's place. He's not a good person. Please do me the miracle of getting him out of her life.' I was still sending this prayer to God when the youth pastor, beaming with a smile asked for my name. “I'm […]

I did it on purpose

Illusions of a Bachelor: Talkin’ about death

By Aaron Aroriza: I am totally drained of all positive emotions, devoid of inspiration. Today I don't feel like doing anything, and that's the challenge I'm facing.

Illusions of a Bachelor

By Aaron Aroriza: She wasn't strikingly beautiful; in fact she wasn't striking at all. But she was beautiful and there was something attractive about her.

My writing: A moment of clarity

By Iteti: It's been two days since I last wrote my thoughts down and I am starting to realize just how 'un-easy' it is to keep a blog going.

The New and Old Boys of Africa.

By Mpuga Rukidi You should have heard a lot about him by now, or have you? Am talking about Michael Sata, the new Zambian president, effective September 23 2011. Of course the old boys in the rest of Africa – a good chunk of them making effective use of their anti-aging creams – must be disgusted by the news of […]
