So much has been written about Ebola in the last few days in Uganda. Feel like collecting some of the articles here.
Why? As Ugandans say- Just. Just because I want to. How original is that!
Yes, I am updating it. As and when I can.
Seems like I will soon have to stop. Reason? The epidemic is under control, and I know that because I have been looking for the articles without getting them. The reading public is more interested in more mundane things. Like politics!
No news is good news, so, a sigh of relief from yours truly.
