The Long Month In January, Tugenda Kuffa!

For the last 23 years I have been on earth, January remains the most humbling month of the calendar. It takes away the festive season excitement and comes with the short “Happy New Year” messages with a hidden “I need a favor” request. Not from the other gender this time round.

Backed up by the hot temperatures, dry lips, ‘Mabanja’ Ho! January will worry you as a millenial is with climate change.

I recently had a chat with my Editor, Akida Kamugisha and looks like we were in a battle of who can convince the other that they are more broke. Funny it was!

Is it a general problem or we are on the other side of the world? A few other friends I interacted with described January as the longest month ever. 31 days with other hidden 30 days because to a hungry and worried mind a day feels like two.

And if January was a woman, It’s a barren one!

One guy say’s, “The problem is that December payday comes a whole lot earlier than usual, making shot of the much needed cash for all the festive expenses”.

There are a number of theories on how to survive in January but who wants to know. Festive season ‘Etumalamu Nyo!’, we want to show off to villagers that Yes: In Kampala we are making money forgetting that the longest month is a few nights away.

During the festive season everyone spends extravagantly and particularly for last year’s festivities, people seemed like they were thirst-quenching the enjoyments they forewent in the past two years of COVID-19 lockdown.

Short sighted about the consequences of December expenditure, here we are in ‘Janworry’. Nobody knows why Baganda called it ‘Gatonnya’ and some Kampala people are still stuck Upcountry with lots of financial literacy learned.

Hold on. The month ends soon!Follow Us
