The roads

18 Feb

” If ever you find a Ugandan driving straight, it is very likely that that Ugandan is drunk”

I heard that statement a while ago and took great offense: even though i don’t know how to drive 😀

Lately however, i am begining to understand what that person meant… Our roads are becoming fishing reserves and swimming pools for the little children.

When driving on our darling roads you’v got to ‘swiv and swerve’ in order to dodge the holes and the olympics finals that sometimes take place.
