Preparing for Uhuru in Koboko

Uganda celebrates independence on 9th october each year, the day it was set free form the British colonialists in 1962. This year, Uganda is 49 years. Just what independence might mean to different individuals, in west-nile particularly Koboko, it’s totally different. School children were out of their afternoon classes to prepare for the day’s matching. When i took my lens at the preparations, i realized independence day is perceived quite  differently from Kampala dwellers and i wonder what the day means to each individual. This is probably more than patritism in this region
