Driving Through a Riot
One day a co-worker and I were working out of the office. So we were in a meeting and when the that meeting was finished we were on the way to the next location and on the way we met some with rocks and burning tires in the middle of the road. So I look at my co worker and said do we continue or not and looked around and saw no Police or Army. We asked are we safe to continue and with not even thinking about it she answered yes very safe. So then we continued for about 2 miles then we ran into a different story. We ran into a Police Riot Vehicle so we both said we go back so we turned around and on the way back we found even more rocks and burning tires in the middle of the road. I was driving from ditch to ditch to get around it with people throwing stones at us the whole time and shouting “THIS IS UGANDA GET THE F!@# OUT” I THEN YELLED BACK TO THEM WE ARE TRYING TO GET OUT!! So when we got back to office we laughed about the whole situation!!
