How you not stan! 🤣🤷🏿
"My breasts are special. They are just loooong and ugly and fat and they have veins. And when you are angry they look angry, when you are happy they look happy. Like you know breasts but with special expressions." - @drstellanyanzi
Reminds me of a line from one of Dr Stella Nyanzi's poems in No Roses From My Mouth where she describes one women's breasts as "succulent millet brown"
We were never ready, ever! Can't wait to see her in parliament!
"I don't want your corporate nature, I don't want your diplomacy....I don't want to sanitise this process. I want you to be as dirty as the people we are speaking to because they play dirty." - Sheila Nyanzi on her sister Dr Stella Nyanzi's approach during the #Pads4UG campaign.
Y’all need to hit pause on that motivational speech in middle of a pandemic which has left many jobless! The we-all-have-24-hours-a day stuff! Please people are struggling, stoping your mpenkoni moves beating people in a bad place already!This country had failed many way before
If you are not suffering financially and having your mental health at stake, surviving sexual abuse in workplaces, navigating political and economic patronage that defines the job sector in this country or the very least have close people trying hard to stay afloat, please rest
Some of us have worked for generations backwards because the realities of this country are harsh and grim for many.
Because surviving bad governance in a neocolonialised , capitalist and patriarchal economy is not a joke! People be the line between the whole clan making it or not
Last night we had conversation with @AfricansRising + @AFRICTIVISTES in the wake of #Guniea's Alpha Conde claiming a third term. It's obvious elections as a marker of democratic leadership are already hijacked by men of this African continent. We have to look for alternatives
#Tanzania's sharply rising despot will take the country through this useless exercise of incumbent consolidating power by any means necessary taking away communications and information to his advantage. it's been done over and over. Museveni & others are masters ar this game
So why do we continue to buy into the illusion of liberal democracy in a formerly colonised countries which are yet to arrive at genuine power-sharing between among others gender, ethnicity and 'educated elite vs rural masses?
Dear young African, we are born, brought up, socialized, educated in colonial constructs called countries. Most of our education refuses to carry us out of these constructs. But you are privileged To be on this app, use it before those ‘intellectual’ gimmicks on #BlackLivesMatter
Seek experiences even in your own country. Understand colonialism was white supremacy and violence, this didn’t go away when white people parked at independence only to return next day (neocolonialism). Many Black people have laboured to sort this knowledge #BlackLivesMatter
To be deeply ignorant about the experiences of your own people when there’s so much to connect you is inexcusable. You can get things wrong but without commitment to learn and unlearn you will continue to embarrass and make the journey to freedom harder! #BlackLivesMatter
Today @HEBobiwine together with Arua MP elect, Kassiano Wadri, Gerald Karuhanga (Ntungamo), Paul Mwiru (Jinja), form MP Mike Mabikke and 30 other Ugandans will be in court for their bail hearing. #FreeBobiWine #FreeArua33
Among the 30 other Ugandans are four women. Their names appear last on the list on the charge sheet. The story centers only prominent figures as it should but often ordinary citizens fighting along, their stories become a footnote. #FreeBobiWine.
I choose to highlight stories of these women because while ordinary people's stories get lost, women at or caught in political contestations easily vanish from our tale of the day's events. #FreeBobiWine
