THE BLACK BEAUTY QUEEN

 

Last year in April,twenty girls took part in a beauty contest.The beauty contest took place at Kyobe Institute. Regina,our elder sister was one of the contestants.She was a very beautiful girl.She had a black skin colour. Apart from this,Regina was also clever and smart.Regina was asked to take part in this beauty contest by her friends.They always called her the “Black Beauty Queen” because of her beautiful black colour.

 

On the day of the contest, very many people came to attend. The contest began at 2:00p.m.The judges looked at the beauty, size, age and nationality of the girls. All the girls were very beautiful so it was very difficult for the judges to choose the winner.

 

After careful judgment, the judges started reading out the results at 6:00p.m At this moment every girl hoped to win the best prize which was a car.

 

The announcer started with the contestant in the last position.He said,”The contestant in the 20th position is Regggggg…………………,Regggggg……..”On hearing this,Regina closed her eyes and covered her face.But after a minute of silence,the announcer said the full name as “Regious”This girl had a name almost similar to that of Regina but thank God it wasn’t Regina.

 

Announcing of results went on for almost an hour.And when they finally announced Regina as the winner,we could not believe it.All of us jumped off our seats shouting with joy.Regina was then crowned as Miss Kyobe and handed over the new car.

A VISIT TO SEBEI

My name is Joseph Muganga. Last December, our father took us for a visit to Kapchorwa in Eastern Uganda. We were five in number. We left our home in Mbale on the 20th of December, 2014. We used the new Sironko road. The first part of the road was smooth. As we moved on, we saw men working on the rough part. They were putting tar on the surface to make it smooth. Most of the men who were working on the road were tall and looked strong. They were dark skinned apart from one they called Kadogo who was short and light skinned. After Sironko, we climbed up mountain Elgon in the Eastern part of Uganda. It was a wonderful place. The mountain is very high with thick forests on the slopes.

 

There are great falls called Sipi. The water flows very fast from the mountain. The roads up in the mountain are very rough and slippery. The drivers find it difficult to drive their vehicles. The drivers have to be careful in order to avoid accidents. Old vehicles cannot climb these rough roads. We used a new small black pick-up on our journey. It had brown soft seats. Our driver was an old man. He knew most of the places very well. Whenever we reached an interesting place, he would stop the car and tell us more about the place. When we reached the falls, he stopped and told us that the falls are called Sipi. He said that many tourists go there to see the beautiful hard rocks from which the Sipi Falls flow. We took some photographs from there. It was really an exciting trip!
