Review. Last week, Uganda celebrated 59 years as an independent nation. Mariot Skyz Kampala celebrated the day in the best way possible; with food, writes A. Kadumukasa Kironde II.

We all know that October 9, is Uganda’s independence day and for some of us who were fortunate to have been born in the 40’s, we can remember with much nostalgia the dining scene of pre independence Uganda. Owing to my father being a Cabinet minister in the then British government in the mid 50’s, we were regarded as middle class Ugandans, a dubious distinction but not of my choosing nevertheless. 
Interestingly, the population of the country at that time was a modest 7.2 million and I would hazard a guess that the Asians including Goans comprised no more than 30,000, while the British and Europeans were in the range of 10,000,000 in number.
