If Ugandan Universities were girls, what would yours be?

In Uganda, specifically Kampala and surrounding areas are different universities but what is interesting is that students of each have their own lifestyles. The Lifestyle of students from Nkumba university isn’t the same as that of Kyambogo students and the latter’s will never be the same as that of Makererians. Is it a coincidence or we got some of kind of Harry Porter sorting hat, No body cares!!

Whether you attended any of these campuses or not, put aside your emotions and put on your joking cap and imagine some of these universities as different types of women. Here is my imagination, a comment with yours will be appreciated.

Kyambogo University – Tomboy

Kyambogo University would obviously be a tomboy. The kind you really can mistake to be a male. She would not care about her appearance at all; will wake up in the morning and throw on a jumper and come to class without as much as brushing her teeth.

Singer Keko, one of the renowned celebrities with a tomboyish lifestyle.

Always spotted squabbling with taxi conductors and threatening to engage them physically at the stage because the fare to town all of sudden rose by Ugsh 500.

Nkumba University – Faded Socialite

Entebbe based Nkumba University would be one of those girls that were bewitchingly beautiful once upon a time back in the day. She had everything you would want in a woman; curves in all the right places, killer legs and a flawless face. She attracted the moneyed and poor alike.

However, the only problem is that she loved the thrill so much she didn’t know when to say ‘No’. She didn’t understand the concept of quitting while still ahead. Almost everyone had their way with her and told of their exploits that no new blood wanted to associate with her anymore.

Makerere University – Slay Queen

Then we have the famous Makerere University. There are girls that you meet in clubs and ask what they had for dinner and they will say “pizza”…even though you asked because you clearly saw leftover ‘beans/ gnuts’ between her teeth. That’s Makerere

She lives a lie, pretends to be something she’s not; all because she has a cool name. Walks around telling people she comes from Muyenga, Kololo or other renowned posh places to live in Kampala. Her ‘Gucci’ handbag and red Louboutin stilettos are fake and she’s just as ghetto as her closest friend, Ms Kyambogo Uni.

Kampala International University (KIU) – Drunkard Beautiful girl

Obviously the Kansanga based KIU would be the always ‘thirsty’ belle seated at the extreme corner of the bar waiting to shoot her shot to any man who comes closer to her;

Whisper in my ears everything that you want to do to me right now.” – This is really being too ‘thirsty’.

Every once in a while in this life, a man does unprintable things with a mysterious girl and kick her out in the morning without even asking their name. That’s KIU.

Uganda Christian Univeristy (UCU) – Church girl

Mukono based UCU has been hard for to imagine but finally related it to this church girl who even if you send transport money, something will always come up that will prevent them from coming over even after years of dating.

She would be rude, unkempt once asked to come over at your hommie for a night. She would also be ridiculously slow in doing her things.
