Dear readers, I may be quiet this weekend. There are several Africanist panels/presentations at the annual meeting of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations that is currently taking place in Arlington, but I am not sure if I will be able to drop by (and I’m not registered, so I’d technically be crashing). For any readers who attend, I do, as always, welcome guest contributions.
I may or may not attend the free performance of the South Sudanese rapper Emmanuel Jal tomorrow evening.
I’ve recently read about a police beating of the Mayor of Kampala, Uganda. I will predict here that in the coming year, unrest in Uganda will become fairly significant again. It is very difficult for me to envision Yoweri Museveni quietly carrying out the final two years of his current term.
