Purely Ugandan

Pictorial: In case you missed the hero(ines) we have profiled today #HeroesDayUG

Brave men and women fought for our country and we got freedom on October 9th 1962. It is because of what they stood for that we are what we are today. We also in the same way recognize new and unsung heroes of this great country who are making a difference today, showing us the way and above all, making Uganda a better place. We have compiled a list of our hero(ines) who have contributed and achieved where most of us shy away. We begin which those who are dead and conclude with those who are still alive. We apologize for those that we have missed out but we acknowledge everyone making a difference in ensuring that Uganda is a better place. The pictures will tell the stories. Happy Heroes Day Uganda!

      Hello Mr Collin We thank you for feedback, Actually, we just missed him out in the pictorial but if you followed the profiling on Twitter during Heroes Day, you would have seen him. Actually, his image was the most retweeted!

      We have put his image in the blog pictorial and we appreciate your help. We just missed it out!

      Check out his image in the pictorial, Dr. Mathew Lukwiya remains the truest contemporary hero in Uganda!

      We thank you!

    Congratulations for this gallery of important personalities in the history of Uganda.

    However, I have to confess that it is difficult for me to see any positive aspect of the dictator Idi Amin Dada. The reason given is rather weak in my view. Before Amin’s time the economy was controlled mostly by Ugandans of foreign origin, just like now. He destroyed the economy and made of a prosperous country, a country that the people who could do so fled. In terms of morals, Uganda was the laughingstock of the world.

    You are all too young to have experienced the inhuman dictatorship that he imposed on your people I am a foreigner who like your country and people. I was in Kampala the first time in 1979. I still remember the dramatic conditions in which people lived.

    As your blog has the ambition to speak only of the positive aspects of life, culture and everything about this beautiful country that God gave you, I will not describe in detail what I had seen.

      Dear Abdoulaye, thank you for being an awesome reader. We share your sentiments, but we believe that if Amin (whatever means he used) helped empower individual Ugandans to know that they could also do business and enhance their economic Independence.
