Kampala Uganda: #WewantPoem By I Don't Know Who


Walking down past Christ the King Church in Kampala Capital City Authority,
a postcard was blowing down the street as if in a hurry down the Parliamentary Avenue up to wherever it would end.

On this postcard was written a sentimental plea.

Was it written by a student who seeing Parliamentarians speed by, wanted them to know that as they legislate they should be mindful of the marginalized?

Was it written by a pregnant woman?

Perhaps it was written by " I don't know who!"

Its title was #WewantPoem.
