Following the just concluded Ugandan elections, there’s this clip doing rounds on social media. It’s from a movie I’m told. In the clip, there are a number of athletes at the starting line of their race. Each is down on one knee…waiting for the starting gun to go off.

Corruption, an Institutionalised Business

I have a friend, let us call him ‘Anonymous’. I have another friend, more of Anonymous’ friend than mine, I shall call him a friend nonetheless and for the purposes of this story, name him ‘InNeed’. It so happened that we were in my kitchen, having lunch and talking, one lazy Tuesday afternoon with not much going on. The two, Anonymous and InNeed have known each other a long while. InNeed flew out for further studies a few years ago. He was in the country for his holidays and would soon be flying out again, he came to spend some time with Anonymous before leaving.
