If there is one thing Ugandans know how to do, it is to be happy. They always find happiness even in the most difficult and wired situations.
If you come up with a very serious speech and make a sarcastic statement just to spice up your speech, they will choose sarcasm and leave you to think for them process by process. Having doubts! Think hard about the Nakyambadde and Kiddawalime story.
With the current situation of total lockdown, Ugandans have found happiness and joy from social media. It’s their dictionary now as every day, they find a new word to help bring life to their statements.
The most trending word now is Nabanja. This is the surname of the newly appointed prime minister. The meer mentioning of this name gives hope to netizens. However, they believe it must be followed with a mobile money message of shs100,000 for the COVID-19 relief money that was promised by the government. Nabanja is currently, Ugandans’ “best” friend as almost everyone on social media has saved her number.

Social Media in-laws are not the kind to celebrate one’s happiness as you rarely find them congratulating a new a couple without negative comments on a side.
Their love for misery grows now and then and this has moved them from the “It will end in tears” phrase to “It will end in Soil Erosion.”
Well, it looks like the kind of misery they wish for fellow netizens can only be compared to running water and wind.
