I’m now nearly finished the Tanzanian section of this amazing medical course. One of the highlights is the Ugandan doctors on the course, one of them even speaks Acholi! The banter is always pure quality.
Me: “What do you mean it was difficult having a girlfriend”
Ugandan Doctor: “Ah, she refused to go on a boda (motorcycle), and demanded 20,000 shillings every week to do something with her hair… You know these ones, they are difficult to maintain. It is easier to manage an outbreak of Ebola than have a girlfriend.” (And yes he’s managed Ebola, so he’d know :D)
Me: “How would you solve the sanitation problems on this island?”
Ugandan Doctor “There is only one way, it needs a dictator like every functioning African country. All they need to do is to make me dictator and within one week there will no longer be human faeces on the beach.”
