I was a little apprehensive about traveling because of the recent tension over the elections - or should I say "elections" - in Uganda. As it happens, the leader of Uganda's African Jewish (Abayudaya) community, Gershom Sizomu, ran for Parliament this year, and I've even seen reports that he won his seat (Mbale, Bungokho North). He is the first Rabbi to run for the Ugandan Parliament.
I probably won't get to meet Rabbi Sizomu himself but I will meet people who are close to him. My Kenyan friend Yehuda has a brother who lives in Uganda and drives for Gershom.
That's all I have time to write now. Be back soon.
