UGANDA: Learn to mind your own business
Last month, I shared globally that I had resigned from one of the biggest NGOs in East Africa, and likely one of the biggest ones on the continent. After two years of working with that NGO.
What stunned me is the few people who commented asked me “How are you now going to pay your bills,, take care of your family, nebilala nebilala”.
I found that offensive because I have never asked anyone to help me pay my bills (My siblings are a different story. It is their duty to pay my bills). People should have asked me why I resigned from that NGO. I was Probono and even have receipts of how much money I sent for this NGO from my meagre savings. Except since in Africa, it is normal to set up an NGO to siphon donor funds, few ask for accountability. I am a documenter so not even $5 from my bank account cannot go unaccounted for.
For my friends who are asking how I am surviving without the Donor funds to the NGO, please do the needful. I accept all modes of payment. I am hungry and no bills being paid. You should call me. I miss you.

PS: I quit because of lack of accountability and transparency of funds.
