UGANDA AIRLINES: Full statement on Nsenene

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT |  Uganda Airlines is considering adding local delicacy Nsenene (long-horned grasshoppers) on their menu for regional and international flights.

This follows a video that has gone viral in Uganda in which a passenger on flight no 446 to Dubai on November 26 is seen selling Nsenene to fellow passengers on the flight.

“We have picked lessons from the incident. Some of our customers enjoy Nsenene”, the statement said.

They however stressed they do not condone the act of selling Nsenene on the flight, and Minister of Works and Transport Gen Wamala Katumba has asked management to penalise all staff on duty when the incident took place.

“About the video making rounds on social media of someone vending Nsenene aboard
@UG_Airlines , I have spoken to the leadership of the airline to take action against the staff who were in charge when this happened,” Katumba said.


  1. The fact that the management is considering including Nsenene (grasshopper) on the flight menu means, it was a Trail Balloon inside job In other words, the PR effort is part of the official position and hoodwinking.

    By trying to introduce Nsenene on its menu without trying and testing; Uganda is courting disaster. E.g., I am highly allergic to nsenene, enswa (white ants) Lobster, Shellfish (Crustaceans), the mere smell alone would trigger a nasal blockage and body swelling/rash.

    So, if taken to its logical decision to include Nsenene on its flight Menu, UA must prepare for food-poisoning related lawsuits/cases, the bankrupting reputation and/or compensations that goes with it.
