Through the Lens: Malaria in Africa

Two years ago, I wrote this blog post about my near death experiences in Burkina Faso. I got sick with Malaria, missed a coup d’etat and a terror attack.

CULTURE SHOOKT: Cannibalism and Witchcraft in Uganda

I’m starting a new blog series entitled Culture Shookt. Basically it’s a collection of things from Uganda that got me shookt. For my first entry, I’ll talk about cannibalism and witchcraft in Uganda. Okay, let’s make things clear. These are just accounts from the people I know here in Africa and in no way verified. Don’t expect Jessica Soho investigations. These are just hearsays.
