Royal Goat Races????

The Ugandan Royal Ascot Goat Races are today at Speke Resort Munyonyo, as usual. A friend was asked whether she would be going for it and her response was,

“I grew up with goats so why should I pay to go see goats running around the place like I didn’t see enough of it when I was young!” In our language it sounds so much better…

This actually amused me.

Have a good weekend… but most will read this after the weekend, so what did you get upto over the weekend?

  1. I keep telling people all they need to do is get Acholi goats, straight from the villages and fire a shot at the starting line.

    They’ll win the race hands down (or is it hooves down) and keep bolting till they reach Kampala.

    I know. I’ve seen them run.

    My weekend is going to super suck. I can already tell.

    Hope yours is better.

  2. cockroaches racing? Lol!

  4. me i have a sport here. how fast that goat can be decapitated hung wrong side up in a tree and skinned so that we get to enjoy roast ribs among other delicacies derived from said carcass.

  5. Naye gwe, it seems u missed the memo.


    And it is for this simple reason that bloggers block in sleeping in my bed these days. We don’t have serious kabozi.
