This is my expression of the sad social, political situation in my country, Uganda. The hunger for our leaders to hold on to power, I feel like the country is being ripped apart by the greedy, corrupt and selfish leaders. The land that was once "The Pearl Of Africa" is slowly perishing. Our leaders are scrambling for every last bit of resource that once made us proud, the cruel, brutal killings of innocent people, the helpless natives of this land. This work of art seeks to convey the intricacy of Uganda's / Africa's social political situation of today, the pain and tears that every African in the land is shading. Its a cry for HELP!!!
