Out there in Europe
there's a revolution,
People of Ukraine
took the world's attention,
80 people died, fighting oppression,
government snipers, and russian insiders,
without the use of a gun,
they sent president Yanukovich
on the run.
leaders were freed, people relieved,
and hope restored, an example for the world,
when people unite, no power can resist a popular plight.
, just turned 90,
prisoner, then revolutionary,
he fought for his people to be free.
34 years later, Africa
's eldest leader celebrated
with a one million dollar party!
Not bad, for a man that had 7 college degrees
and his last child when he was 73!
too, we can be proud of our elderly,
at Loyce Atim, the grandma from Soroti
who just entered P1 at the age of 80.
What to do with miniskirts now?
us your miniskirts!" say women in Tanzania
we don't need them any more over here!
The Ethics Committee
says a law against mini-skirts,
not our country's first
The question of too much skin, was first raised under Idi Amin
But the recent law is different,
fear it leaves too many blanks,
and people could take justice into their own hands,
That's what happened to a lady in Nebi,
She wore a mini-skirt and got assaulted for indecency,
Dragged on the floor with no respect for her humanity,
A strange behavior in the 21st century
Especially knowing, that for most of human history,
the dress code was
often just simple nudity...
hope we can all respect the law,
and that the law can see the difference
between the freedom to dress,
and the road to excess.
of prosperity in East African Community
What a brilliant idea -The East African Community,
good for business, peace
shows, that things work better,
when neighbors come together,
Look at European countries
they used to fight wars,
Now they've opened all the borders and all doors.
that's a good philosophy!
started with Uganda, Kenya
and Tanzania in 1967
then joined by Burundi
some even dream of single state, and a single currency,
but a true Federation
is still a fantasy.
For now, the 150
million members are free to cross the border,
no need for passport just a national ID will work
A great reason to go and discover, all the wonders our region has to offer.
For tourists too its more easy to travel
through the EAC, from Kilimanjaro
All you need is a single visa, no more 50 dollars at each border.
