Trust is…

Voting for Ssebaggala even when, given his manifesto, Peter Ssematimba is the best candidate of them all.

Believing that when the president says he’s sacked Jim Muhwezi, it is for real this time. It is forgetting that Mr. Katugugu is the Real Comeback Kid.

Being Jude Law in Enemy at the Gates and telling Joseph Fiennes to cover you while you go in and shoot the living hell out of the krauts even when he just found out that you stole his girl. Or being Tom hanks in Finding Private Ryan and telling that sniper guy to cover your ass.

Looking at the Durex on the table once, twice then thrice and leaving it unopened before you get jiggy. This in an age where your country is known for, among other things, war, death, AIDS, death, Idi Amin and more death. According to CNN.

Throwing caution to the wind and saying you will live with someone for the rest of her life (or yours) without thinking of the stupidity of making such expansive statements which could be used against you in a court of law someday.

Reading the witty stuff on the blogosphere and thinking that the people who write it are all good inside and that they are all advocating for a better Makerere Kivulu and World Peace.

Listening to Joseph Kony.

Being Gabriel Byrne in Stigmata and you have to exercise your faith in a God who’s stronger than the devil when Lucifer himself turns up for a duel because you have been cramping his style.


About Steven

It wasn't me; arrest the voices. It was the voices in my head. Sike! I am Ugandan first. I care for development in my country. I am a curious observer second and I care to know what you think.
