It is an experience that few would voluntarily quit in a country where unemployment and business failure has become a routine.
Many actually forget it is just a social contract that has to be renewed every after five years, according to the Constitution of Uganda.
But again you wonder how these people who enjoy a near life of luxuries find themselves trapped in deep debt and with no clue of surviving through.
