    It is Valentine’s Day? So what, you might be thinking. But according to a Synovate report, 65 per cent of Ugandans fully intend to celebrate love this Tuesday.

    It takes two, and this survey done in urban areas across various districts in the country has no “gender disparities in the proportion who indicate that Valentine’s Day is important to them meaning that romance is a two way affair for both males and females surveyed,” it says.

    So, flowers, special dinners, cards and gifts like shoes and clothes, are some of the mentioned ways through which the people interviewed plan to express and communicate their romantic feelings this Tuesday.

    In contrast, more than half of the 1,011 adult Kenyans who took part in the survey do not plan to celebrate the day. Their reasons vary. Some do not believe in the day, others will be working, while others say they do not have the money or the partner to pander to. It is important to note however that fewer Ugandans compared to Kenyans mentioned these as ‘excuses’, clearly showing that to a great extent Ugandans may be more passionate about Valentine’s Day, or romance for that matter, than Kenyans.
