The last couple of weeks I have been working on two documentaries, one on trade and another on women’s empowerment, for our 50th anniversary of independence on October 9. I went to the eastern district of Butaleja. It was my first time there and also the first time I’ve seen rice in the field. These were the sights in this beautiful land.
