Where are We Going?
|by Dr. Morice Deogratias|
n November 2005, elders in Bunazi, North Bukoba, invited me, their favorite son, to a luncheon in my honor.
Initially, I hesitated to accept the invitation because I was struggling with organizing my sister's wedding, and was supervising the construction of my parents' mansion. But the elders insisted, "We don't expect a major address. Just come and let us honor you." So I agreed. After wonderful things were said about me, I stepped to the rostrum, looked at the crowd, and said,
Having said that, I continued, "See the certificate I'm holding in my hand? It's for the MD degree. After I got it, some of my friends and colleagues were telling me I am a little slovenly, slow, humble, uneventful and broke most of the time, and that I used to be a bit more fastidious, being someone opinionated, with new inventions, and with cash at hand.
