BBC Appearance


Listeners to Network Africa on the World Service this morning would have heard an interview with me conducted a couple of months ago by Uganda correspondent Sarah Grainger. It focused on what it is like to be a foreign (bazungu rather than other Africans) student studying at Makerere and the differences between here and Western universities. My Canadian classmate James was interviewed too and should be appearing on BBC World shortly. They also talked to our Ugandan classmates and I particularly like this quote from Daphne: "At first I thought he was crazy".
You can read a written version of the interview here:


And until tomorrow morning it should be possible to listen to it from here (23:50 onwards into the 30 minute programme):
