À birthday is a special day if recognized and celebrated by friends, work-mates and acquaintances. What makes it worth and an emotional event, is when it is a surprise attack on you.
The day we decided that UPDF should have representatives in the Parliament of Uganda was the day the army sat in the middle of the partisan political debates.
As we embarked on the journey to my destination, I noticed that the traffic flow was so bad that all key exits to Nairobi West were in a gridlock. It is at that juncture that I asked my driver how we would get out of the traffic congestion. He replied; “Bwana we will get there, I have other options, we will use Mbagathi Highway and we will be there.” I took in his response with deliberation wondering if Mbagathi highway would salvage the situation.
