Kenya / The burning of fire arms

Visited the 7th Anniversary of fire arms in Uhuru Gardens, Nairobi. Kenyan minister of Security Michuki repeated his ideas about what should happen with people who are cuaght with fire arms in their possession: they should get the death penalty. On the pictures you see the burning of 8.008 fire arms (you don’t see the more than 100.000 that are still in circulation by the way)… [mygal=archive]

Uganda / To Kampala

Finally after a while of to Uganda again. Usual mode of transport: the Yellow Glory of Kenya (at least that what is used to be): the Akamba bus. Started the 13 hour trip more than one day ago in Antonio’s Bar: 24 hours open. That’s where I took the picture and recorded some atmosphere (sorry partly in Dutch). Main goal: Arua, the hometown of Idi Amin. The sound impression starts in the restaurant with the ongoing announcement well…. it must be something like… ehhh  a lot of destinations. Kampala is one of them… and I’m about to leave. [audio:http://www.blog.africareporter.net/audio/Kampala.mp3] See you on the road!
