Canadian reminder of Kigezi’s unexploited tourism potential

Welcome to this Fireplace where we:

  1. Share information and views about East Africa. There is a great story to tell about the history, politics, economy, culture, tourist opportunities and health status of each of the Member States of the East African Community.
  2. Share information and views about Canada, from the perspective of East Africans living and/or doing business there.
  3. Share personal interests in music and books, as well as profiles of people whose lives and/or works have had an impact on my life, my thinking and my hopes for a better world.
  4. Engage in reasoned, respectful and balanced discussion of issues of interest to East Africa.

Thoughts are free and everyone has a right to freely express them. Welcome, explore this site, then sit by The Fireplace and enrich us with your ideas.

Better still, tour East Africa and enjoy the beauty of a part of the world that is the cradle of humankind. You will be glad you did.

Dr. Mulera - Colour Bar

"COLOUR BAR"

Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams of Botswana, were one of the most justly respected political couples in post-independence Africa.

Seretse was a brown-skinned Motswana prince and Ruth a pink-skinned English commoner, united in one of the greatest love stories of the last century. Battered by ancient traditions in their respective countries, as well as deep and overt racism in the United Kingdom and South Africa, the young lovers triumphed against the storms to become Botswana's first post-independence First Couple.

This masterfully researched and written account by Suzan Williams is one I have read twice and will likely read again. Sir Seretse Khama was the most genuine democrat to serve as president of an African country before Nelson Mandela. This book helps explain the man and his distinguished leadership of Botswana.

My kind of music

Dr. Mulera - Shades of Redd

"Shades of Redd"

This is, perhaps, the best of Freddie Redd's rather small discography. His piano playing is masterful and sweet. With first rate playing by his sidemen, it is a classic Blue Note date that should please bop aficionados.

Recorded on August 13, 1960 and released in May 1961, this is one of the finest illustrations of the Blue Note sound and music that remains a high point in the story of recorded Jazz music. Indispensable Jazz.
