    Hollywood actor and producer Forest Whitaker definitely has profound memories of Uganda! For starters in 20017, he scoop “Best Actor” in the Academy awards for his efforts in the “Last King of Scotland” a movie acted here about former president Idi Amin Dada.

    Well, he is back though not to act. He has been in the country championing peace and development initiatives through young people.

    Last night, he had a sweet taste of Acholi sounds as he danced pakachini round the bonfire Lou style with singer Jackie Akello. He wove his waist to the tunes of the rhythmic “Apwooyo” tune.

    The actor  is the UNESCO Special Envoy for Peace and Reconciliation and a member of the United Nations(UN) Sustainable Development Goals Advocacy Group.

    Whitaker is in the country to consolidate his ‘Harmonize’ programme that is being implemented in northern Uganda and soon to be launched in Kiryandongo.
