Your daily cup of coffee will taste even better when you know where it was sourced from, and what went into the production process.
A small group of Ugandan Vespa riders are the subject of a World Photography Awards entry, and their story is one of devotion and respect for the two-wheeled icon.
The world literally erupted in shock when we all watched that video of the nanny kicking around the little toddler – and now justice has been served.
People spend a FORTUNE to get to Uganda from all over the world, just to encounter these magnificent creatures. And here we are, sitting in South Africa, able to nail this 7-day bucket list item for under R5,500. It’s too easy!
The BBC reports that there has been a sharp rise in the purchase of fake HIV test results in Uganda. Persons testing positive for HIV are compelled to purchase negative test results from health professionals in order to secure work. Infection carries a heavy social penalty in Uganda.
Derided or not, proponents of the KONY2012 campaign have managed to make Kony famous, or at the very least a topic of conversation.

Bravo. Anti-riot police used tear gas and water canons (loaded with dyed water) to disperse supporters of the opposition party in the outskirts of Kampala yesterday. The group had gathered to mourn people killed during demonstrations earlier this year.
Youth activists in Uganda recently attempted to throw a public birthday party for President Yoweri Museveni. They brought cake, sweets, and mangoes! By doing this, they hoped to focus attention on his disputed age. See, he claims he is 67, but they say he is actually 73. The president took offence and had them and their cake arrested.
