The roads in Kampala, Uganda, really weren’t all that bad. I was told by lots of folks that Kenya is far worse off in the road department. But take a look at this video, and see what you think.
This is on our way from Kampala to one of the field visits. Again, I’m sure this isn’t the worst road in the world, but it’s one of the worst I’ve personally ever been on. Imagine having an emergency. Imagine being a dairy farmer and needing to get your milk to the chilling station in a short amount of time. For our project participants, these are issues they face all the time. I don’t know enough about the Ugandan infrastructure system to really make a statement here, but I do know lives would be easier if the roads were better. Can you imagine?
Oh, and if you made it to the end of the video, those are native Ankole cattle. Beautiful, but not the most productive for dairy (another post for another time).
