On Saturday, I had the privilege of being inducted into the Rotary Club of Jinja and now carrying the title of a “Rotarian”. The event was held at the home of a Past President of the Rotary Club and was well attended. I was especially impressed that the Guest of Honor was a Mr. Henry Kyemba who has worked in almost every regime that has governed Uganda since Independence – this included a stint as the Minister of Health under Idi Amin before he fled to the UK with his family. He was the one who placed the Rotary pin on each of our lapels as well. There were 10 of us who were inducted and included lawyers, business people, and senior members of local NGOs. The event included speeches, music, and even dancing. I am always impressed how Ugandans love to celebrate and enjoy life whenever they can! Some pictures of the event are enclosed. The suit coat was from Faustine who was gracious enough to lend it to me. “Service Above Self” as the motto goes!
