It was a great surprise to drive up to ‘Miami beach’ Luzira, on lake victoria on the outskirts of kampala and to find a dedicated group of amateur rowers. Led by a dynamic young coach with ambitions of taking a team to the all africa games. They have donated rowing boats, some with ‘reading rowing club’ isignia, tightly stored into a shipping container. It was a colourful sight to see lots of young and middle aged guys and girls too, messing about with boats. And I am talking about Black Ugandanshere……….what a breath of fresh air from the mundane premier league soccer.
