SIX KILOGRAMS OF RICE, THREE KILOGRAMS OF BEANS, GET SET..GO!

In one of the Kampala suburbs, an eating competition was held. A number of young men, like in their early twenties and thirties registered to participate. It was the winner-takes-it all kind of competition, so there was no business of first, second or third runners up prizes.

 

One kilogram is an equivalent of 2.20 pounds {for those of you who do your weights in pounds}. On the d-day, all the people that had registered chickened out except for one. Let’s call him Jim {not real name}. The “organisers” of the competition checked with him a number of times, asking if he was sure he wanted to do this and he said he was positive-150%!!

 

All was set, food cooked {6kgs of rice and 3kgs of beans} and “guests” came. People did not pay to watch this. It was free of charge, if you had time {which I’m sure most people around there did}, that was all. I’m sure you are anxious to know how it went down…okay, okay…relax…here it is!

 

He ate up all the 3kgs of beans {wow !wow!}, plus 2kgs of rice {brilliant!?}. This sent him collapsing and in an unconscious state. He was rushed to hospital {I don’t know what happened there}, but the spectators were left laughing out loud! What were there laughing at? I don’t see any fun in that…. Oh! I almost forgot, had he won, his prize was shs.20.000, the equivalent of like $11. That little? And Jim put his life in hams was? That was a sad story. What is even more disturbing is that similar ‘competitions’ have been held in the same area, and three people have died in the process.

 

Granted, the economic recession is affecting every one of us in one way or another but surely! Anyways, the authorities have sent out a strong warning against any such ‘competitions’, great! {where have they been?}. But then again, I guess to think that the authorities can protect you from certain things {like such a ‘competition}, is to expect soooooooo much!
