Local advice is in short supply here. There is no CAB, social services, advice agencies etc but there is Mzee Makumbi who seems to be multitalented (for a fee).
I am also an Mzee. This is not a qualification, member of a secret society or professional qualification. Its just someone with grey hair. The thinking is that if you have lived long enough to grow grey hair you must be wise.
Few people live long enough to get any grey hair so us mzees are quite unusual.
The final team of volunteers has now gone back to the UK. They were all with grey hair – all mzees – we were a bus load of wisdom (allegedly).
I now have time to do a bit of housekeeping. I have a week left in Uganda before I go west to Sierra Leone. In that week I have reports to write and plans to make.
I also need a haircut. I might visit “Two Missed Calls Salon”. It is next to a pharmacy called ” Milked Drug Shop” I may take a taxi there with local firm ” Travel with Harmony”. The taxi rank is under an advertising hoarding saying “Sleeping Baby is still the Right Choice”
I get endless amusement from Ugandan signs – but I will not respond to Mzee Makumbi’s one !
Thanks for reading.
