Toyota KlugerWhere less size means more budget savings

The Toyota Kluger is a very silent vehicle not very common on Ugandan roads. Its name and exterior are not that attractive, although beauty lies with the beholder. The re is no doubt, however, that you will be swept off your feet with just one ride in this SUV. It could also be your eye open to try out something new and unique because this may not be such a big 4 x 4 vehicle, yet it is a perfect example of a slightly smaller vehicle that does about everything the biggies do and on a much smaller budget.

Uganda’s finest artists host first TEDx-conference in Kampala

A city flooded with litter is great news for the creatives. Artists should look for waste materials in their immediate surroundings, take advantage of the built-in shapes, colours and textures of ordinary rubbish, and treat the piles of litter as a source of inspiration.

Uganda’s new slave trade

Sitting at a table in a run-down bar on the edge of Ugandan capital Kampala, Stella Kobusingye stares into the distance as she recalls the tangle of lies and deceit that led to her sex-slavery ordeal.

Struggling to support her young son and sickly mother with the income from a small shop, last year Kobusingye heard about a job opportunity earning US$800 a month working at a Ugandan-owned boutique in Malaysia.

Do not ignore air filter if you are to keep your vehicle running for a long time.

Dust is everywhere. It is on the road, in the house and on the roof, on billboards, and of course on cars. Everything is covered in dust and to everybody flue and sneezing is not a surprise.

Sadly, when you look at the sky, there is no sign that even out of the blue it will rain. Since most roads are almost marrum, by around midday the whole sky and horizon is covered with dust. Water consumption is very as thirsty everyone tries to quench the thirst. But it is not only humans that are affected by the dust. Vehicles too are finding a lot of the problems.

Pioneer Bus on Kampala Road.Miracles for some as Pioneer Easy buses take-off

On March 12, something unusual happened to Nelson Mukisa. As usual, he was rolling his wheelchair from Nansana where he lives about 12kms from the Kampala to his shoe-repair business in the city centre.

Although, his route is well-served by taxis and Mukisa would gladly have paid the fare, he says he has never rode one because many operators regard his wheelchair as a bother.

Only a few have been spotten on our city roads

Finally, there are Priis (Plural for the Toyota Prius) in our beautiful city. The one I have seen is from the earlier model, when they were still designed as compact sedans. Surely, however, the more modern mid-sized hunchbacks cannot be far behind. In fact, it would not surprise if there one or two already somewhere.

So what is the excitement about?

Four picks from Different But One 16

In the Western World, in a cultural yet symbolic manner, newlyweds jump over a broom as they cross the threshold of their home within which all of life’s emotional experiences unfold.

The sixteenth ‘coming-together’ of artists from the Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine Arts symbolically reenacts a ‘crossing over the threshold’-experience. Like newlyweds, or couples renewing their vows, I believe that the Makerere University dons are renewing their commitment to art, to which they are - in every respect - passionately devoted.

Most don’t meet the genuine manufacturer’s standards and breakdown under pressure

Accidents are so commonplace in Uganda that whenever they happen a few tears are shed for a while and then everything is forgotten and everyone, motorists inclusive, returns to their dangerous habits.

But I cannot understand are the police officers who stand before TV cameras to give their view on the cause of the accident.
