    Am a Ugandan so my first priority is to learn Swahili (Ha!) and I really want to mix with East Africans. I am an activist (so I must be in the opposition right?) I live in Florida, USA but I forgot to pack my heart and soul. Those I left in Uganda 8 years ago. Let's talk, get to know each other and make this East African thing a reality...

    1. Wewe ni mwanaharakati (activist) wa nini, kupanda miti (green buff), kukataza ulaji nyama (animal rightist), au kupunguza ubwanyenye wa watoto (child obesity)?

    2. Unajifunza Kiswahili kwa Kiingereza?

    3. Na umejifunzaje Kiingereza kabla ya Kiswahili, huko Uganda mnaongea lugha gani haswa?

    4. Huo moyo na roho ulivyovisahau Uganda umeshindwa kuvirudia mvua 8 (8 years) zote hizo?

    5. Ulikuwa hujachanganyika (mix) na Waafrika Mashariki, uliko hawako, au ulienda kwa wazawa wakakukataa?

    Karibu barazani (conversation mat) na kaa mkao wa kula.

    Asante sana Dilunga, Ngabu na Blu Ray. Unfortunately hakuna matooke or Kabalagala hapa Florida. Am in Plantation, Florida which is near Miami. Mimi ni mwanaharakati wa political rights and freedoms. Lakini am an absentee leader in Uganda's largest opposition political party FDC www.fdcuganda.org Nime kimbiya from regime ya Uganda...(long story for another day). Uganda tuna ongea second hand English and third hand Kiswahili! Nimeshindwa kurudia Uganda because of my big mouth as you can see here http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/stop-the-export-of-us-corporate-greed-to-africa and here The Observer - ANNE MUGISHA: Our work is far from done I really can't understand no. 5 am sorry Dilunga.
    Asante for the warm welcome.

    Perspicacious, Anne Mugisha.

    Wewe ni mwanaharakati wa kweli maana unaweza misukosuko. Nilifikiri utasinyaa (flinch) kukaribishwa na lugha kavu kavu (dry and high-octane) kama yangu. Nadhani utafiti hapa maana unayaweza na una utuluvi wa hali ya juu (repose) mbele ya vimbunga (eye of the storm).

    Ahsante.

    Baadae.

    Oh, Ngabu, someone sent me that good old music from Zilipendwa today because I loved dancing to that stuff back in the day in Ange Noir and other Clubs in Kampala. I was listening to the music when I realized this was a discussion forum and I decided to join...
    Dilunga, am going crazy trying to enter each word in your message above in the online swahili dictionary. Am so bad. I warned you : Third hand swahili!!!

    Yes am Anne Mugisha alright. But both are common names in Uganda. I am an opposition activist and I got tired of using psuedonyms long ago. Needed to own up to my own remarks, observations, comments, actions and reactions. Now, who are you Son of Alaska?

    Anne Mugisha,

    Ulisema kipaumbele cha kwanza (first priority) ni kujifunza Kiswahili, lakini umeshaanza kusema wapata wazimu (going crazy) kutafuta maana za maneno yangu kwenye kamusi. Huna nia ya dhati (diligence) kujifunza weye.

    Hata hivyo ni kweli kamusi za mtandaoni (online dictionaries) ni michosho, mbovu. Huwezi pata maneno mengi. Ni bora hata uulize wadau wa hapa badala ya ile kamusi uchwara (crummy dictionary) ya Yale University.

    Nilichosema pale ni kuwa, wewe umeonyesha una weza kuvumilia majadiliano yenye misuguano ya hapa na pale (heated back and forth) bila kughafirika (without being rattled). Ni vema sana manake hapa utahitaji hizo hulka.

    Bwana Dilunga (Am assuming you are a man - its tonal),

    Nimesikia kidogo kitu unasema. Sasa ninajaribu, ninasoma mpaka ni kuwa mtaalamu. Ni kuwa mwanafunzi mzuri. Asante sana.

    Karibu sana Anne Mugisha. Sisi wengie hapa English is our third hand language. Kwa mantiki hiyo lugha yangu hapa kwa mawasiliano ni Kiswahili maana ni my second hand language. Otherwise, karibu sana. Nafurahi wewe ni mtu wa kuvumilia mawimbi (storms), hapa napo yamo!!!! We hate "hatred languages". Kuna mkenya alifunga virago juzi ati kwa kuwa alifungiwa (banned) na Forum mods kwa tabia yake ya hate in the forum. Hivyo, basi lugha yetu hapa ni ya upendo tu na heshima kwa kila member hata kama mnatofautiana katika itikadi au mawazo. Again Karibu sana.
