Saying It Like I Feel

UGX 40,000

This book is a compilation of my short articles and cartoons plus some of the issues in our society, especially those that are, in my view, often taken for granted. These include social conventions, manoeuvres, attitudes on social behavior, homosexuality, education, politics, leadership, environment, African identity, and living with ethnic differences.

Description

Over the years I have had several requests and suggestions that I put together the short pieces that I have written and drawn (cartoons) over time, especially after the viral article Tanzanian should stop provoking us. Some of these articles have been published in newspapers, especially the Observer, others on various online spaces, and in newsletters. Some have not been published before.

This book is thus a compilation of my short articles and cartoons plus some of the issues in our society, especially those that are, in my view, often taken for granted. These include social conventions, manoeuvres, attitudes on social behavior, homosexuality, education, politics, leadership, environment, African identity, and living with ethnic differences.

Considering the mixed nature of the audience of the articles herein, not much attention is paid to theoretical discourse. For similar reasons, I kept language use simple and conventional. I felt that there was need for putting these articles together for quick reference, especially for audience that may not access or pick interest in academic literature.
