This Is Uganda


By Joel Basoga*

For God and my Country

These are words embodied in our nation’s Creed

But only right here in Uganda Does our government export electricity?

When 25 percent of our own do not have access to sustainable energy

Only right here in Uganda Do we send out Doctors to fight Ebola in West Africa

When our very own Mothers and sisters Cannot afford healthcare for a pregnant woman?

This is Uganda

Home of the Rich home to the wealthy Home of well paid But at the same time,

Uganda Is home to the poor,the deceived Home to the deceived and

home to Natural disasters That has left our People in Bududa in need.

Some say our Country is embodied in Hatred and tribalism

But there lies Kampala Kampala the City of Brotherly Love

Where regardless of one’s background A child can hope to make it.   4
