Safe Arrival in Uganda

Feb 5th, we arrived safely in Uganda last evening, and are now comfortably settled at the Makerere University guest house.

Our time in Nairobi was interesting. The news continues to be ugly, but the messages are confusing. Nobody can understand why the opposition, under Mr. Odinga, have not filed an official complaint in the Kenya courts, because that is really the only way that a proper examination of the votes of late December can be re-examined. There is talk of someone having been brought in from the USA to disrupt the voting pattern and cause divisions, and this was apparently the same individual who was able to create disruption in Georgia.

Our arrival in Entebbe airport was tempered by the failure of our driver to show up, so we had to get a taxi and then find that our accommodation had also not been booked. We found a good substitute easily & are now at the Makerere University Guest house, where we have stayed before.

Tomorrow our students arrive and then we head of to work.

More soon.
