“I thank you for the overwhelming reception/support through orders made from the time I announced its release.”
“You can make orders at Shs50,000/ per copy through MM 0772415535 or INBOX and arrange for delivery of signed copies.”
Copies will be available in Kampala bookshops starting today, Monday.
“You may not think of a better Christmas gift to make someone laugh all through the season and have the satirical critique of Ugandan socio-political events for keeps,” the cartoonist said.
The book was partly made possible by the Kuonyesha Art Fund which is managed by CivSource Africa.
This is Spire’s way of advancing art in Uganda.
He heads the Centre for African Studies plus research and publication at Uganda Martyrs University and teaches Philosophy at Makerere University.
