Expat Life The drama of dating in Uganda With absent wives and ‘side-dishes’ on the menu, being a single Englishwoman in the east African country proved to be a tricky role to navigate for this expat Many expat men in Uganda have a wife at home and a girlfriend in Uganda By Charlotte Beauvoisin 6: From here it’s only a matter of time — sometimes minutes — before the inevitable marriage proposal.
Welcome to dating in Uganda. None of them have turned out to be serious of course — and sums it up really. Marriage is not such a serious matter here it seems. Many conversations are high in sexual content. Conversations with newly arrived expats are no different, turning very quickly to enquiries as to whether you have brought your family with you.
The typical male expat has it handed to him on a plate. Beautiful young Ugandan women — who may or may not be prostitutes, depending on the bar you frequent — will fall over themselves to make you and your male friends the centre of attention. The chances of finding a legitimately single expat male in Uganda are few and far between — and Lord knows we look.
My female friends and I were at a party one night when an attractive guy turned up — without female company. The instruction was clear: When she had been on holiday in London, she found no end of available dates, but here in Kampala?

Such relationships were very hard to manage in terms of money, emotional support, sexual satisfaction, among others over the past days. This is no longer a challenge with the advent of new technologies for example the online media in form of Emails, WhatsApp, Facebook, MSN, Online games, among others that almost create a similar feeling to that of a normal relationship. Online media offers voice conversation features for example the WhatsApp voice note, Facebook call, Skype, among others allows people in a long distance relationship to talk every day for as long as they want at a cheaper price.
This new invention has bridged the communication gap between such individuals in the said relationships and the rate at which they feel close is arguably comparable to those in normal relationships. Indeed, gone are the days when long distance lovers were not allowed to dream of having a date at a given time as they desired in a long distance relationship. With the birth of online platforms such as Skype, such lovers just have to agree on the time to enjoy the date and skype offers them the moment for example a decision can be made to have a date at the favorite eating place as one joins the eating on the other end.

Who is Denis Lee Oguzu? I am MP from Maracha. He made his contribution and time came for me to make my contribution and I think in the wisdom of the voters, they thought I represented the rising sun and therefore most voters decided that from to I should be their representative in parliament. I was born in Maracha; I grew up there, and even studied there for my primary and O-level.
IT was introduced in Makerere in our tenure and I thought the world is now technologically driven so I needed to be part of the ICT innovation. After you got elected, what were your expectations? I expected that I would be able to bring the issues that affect us to the forefront and I think for the one year I have been here I have made sure either through writing and through legislating I have been able to bring some of the issues to the forefront. I also expected I would meet the people who have the country at heart and, therefore, all decisions made would be based on the national interest but now I am getting to realize people have divided opinion on some of the issues.
I also expected that in parliament we would be able to make decisions very fast and deal with the backlog that has existed in legislating but I also realized many times parliamentary proceedings may not be fixed quickly.

Name and Details of Collaborating Coordinator: It is essential to the understanding of natural and man-made phenomena, discovery of new products, techniques and the application of science and technology for sustainable socio-economic development. Uganda experiences the erratic effects of global warming resulting in reduced agricultural production, disease resurgence, droughts, floods and degradation of the environment among other things.
In addition, the country largely depends on biomass as a major source of energy leading to environmental degradation. In spite of the abundant natural resources, the country does not have sufficient capacity to harness them to address the issues of health and nutrition. A firm foundation in the basic sciences is fundamental in tackling these problems and building a modern nation. Research in the basic sciences in Uganda is limited by inadequate research facilities and the high cost of consumables.
In Uganda, less than one third of the close to 30 public and private universities teach or carry out any research in the basic sciences. In particular the establishment of new universities has created faculties of science that lack functional laboratories, research funding, equipment and appropriately educated and trained personnel in the delivery of science.
