Yellow Friday

I covered two events yesterday (February 25 2011).

One was a victory concert by the National Resistance Movement (NRM) called “Kiwedde.” The other was a crunch game in the Nile Special Rugby league.

As you would expect, the victory celebrations at Kololo Airstrip in which the President was in attendance was always going to be about colour, colour and more colour. Precisely, yellow, yellow and more yellow.

I took about 200 frames which was really little by my standards. I kept clicking on anything yellow. The mood was surprisingly less of enthusiasm.  I met a group of guys who had painted themselves yellow. They too, could only wave their yellow flags.

It was frustrating leaving such a huge function without “that image”.

I crossed over to Kampala Rugby club where the game of the weekend in the Rugby circles was taking place. UTL Kobs was hosting MTN Heathens.

Kobs were “yellow washed” with a shocking 0-33 score line. The Kobs had never lost to Heathens at home without scoring a point for eight years.

MTN Heathens ran down UTL Kobs whole day at Kampala Rugby Club on February 25, 2011

Wow! Heathens was running Kobs down so easily. Am not a staunch rugby fan but well, i was impressed.

And so, i decided to look for a frame or two to feature. A heathens’ fan who follows this blog so addictively begged me to save him from the politics in here and run something else like hmmmmmm………….Heathens ?
