The Water Trap free pdf Synopsis The Water Trap - At the Scotland G7/8 conference 2005 a select African Head of States were invited by the conference host Prime Minister Tony Blair as observers. Many of the issues discussed in that conference concerning Africa: Aspects of mitigation of the MDGs Millennium Development Goal, Human rights and Good Governance, Infrastructure transformation and several of the conditions G8 had towards the end of the conference packaged for African Head of States - these were the background factors that had strengthened the theme of this book. Though the writing of this book was community 'cause-concern' triggered, still at the far background of the thinking was remotely - this justifying influence. The Water Trap is a non-fiction essay or narrative of a research on water scarcity in the town of Gulu in Northern Uganda during the war between government's UPDF//Rebel Kony LRA. The analysis evolves around the causes for the endemic water scarcity that drove scores of women scurrying for water every day. This factor creates the sub-theme for studying the local government itself and it's nearly non-existent linkage to the national legislators who should loud these matters in parliament - narrated at the background of Uganda's 'Decentralization' as the overview factor. Broadly, these factors carry the analysis along short, reader friendly prose. 'The Water Trap' is written in a 10 chapter fluid narration that had initially been intended for accompaniment 'voice over' of a video documentary whose captured theme eventually emerged into this book - this book covers effectively the Ugandan 7th and 8th Parliamentary term. Author - Sam Mwaka-karama Is a self developed free lance writer of many short essays, stories and newspaper articles. He first published a newsletter MONAKK way back in 1991/2 and distributed on the streets of Kampala - writing essays about HIV/Aids back then was a rather socking thing for most readers - lack of money though caused the fold-up of the newsletter. Years later, Sam wrote short items on a local language weekly for a while. Went on net by the end of the 1990s and setup a site (Acholi Homeland Editorial) with 'saved pages' of short essays and articles bookmarked from 'Geo cities' on Yahoo's Beta 2. Between 2009 and 2012 he was editor and columnist for a weekly newspaper 'The Movement Times' then based at the Serena International Conference Center in Kampala. Sam is now a blogger on Google's: www.blogspot.com/mwakarama - having left the weekly newspaper, the Author is currently working on two major manuscripts: CILLINI the name of the spirituality that drives LRA rebel leader Kony. KITE SPIRIT an oral history with a unique attachment to the Author's own childhood - which causes his daughter's suicide in Berlin Germany... The Author is also a subscribed learning Global member at 'MIT OpenCourseWare' - the MIT University's huge and growing (off the box) learner's online facility has made an impact on the writer, like to many around the World. About the Book: Between 2000 and 2007, a gradual decline in water supply highlighted a scarcity that had slowly emerged in Gulu town Northern Uganda - only ten years after the wartime (1990/93) JR/Carlbro water project refurbished Gulu Municipality's Kabedopong water supply, this book was inspired by that dire water scarcity... and the hardship the water fetching women faced with that lack.

About MR Sam Mwaka-Karama G

Author Autobiography I was born in 1951, to a Policeman Icaka Oruk Abwola and Mama Margaret Abwo Lawino of Lamogi in Northern Uganda- at the time my father was stationed in Masaka in South Central Region of Uganda - not far from Kampala. The first Primary School I attended is nestled to Secret Heart Seminary Lacor, in Gulu Northern Uganda - so initially I was influenced into the Seminary where I joined the junior campus in Aboke- next to St. Mary Girls Secondary School from where the famed 'Aboke Girls' of the Joseph Kony rebel abductions story came from. My Journey into literature starts there and caused my dismissal from the Seminary: "Finding Out" was the title of a Magazine in the 1930/50s class of "Argosy" packed with well illustrated stories - I stole a hefty binding collection from the library and went with it for my first term holiday. That was my introduction into Literature, Geography, History and English. Dismissed! I was devastated and utterly destabilized hopping from School to School till 1969 when I joined the Uganda Police. Now I could afford books and, every turn of the way I got linkages to 'Finding Out' and pursued and enjoyed reading and, suddenly also discovered links between good books and 'movies'- thus began my fellowship with World Class Authors and a fascinating walk down the labyrinths of informal learning. 'The Water Trap' is my first researched essay... Quote the Author "Getting closer to understanding an African government? The blindfolds were always the formal press and media. Too many times people want to equal London, Paris, Rome, Bonn or now Berlin and New York - bedecking up our newspaper analyses with the big city Journalists footwork - was only sweeping the really simple African local government stuff under the plush office floor carpets..."
