“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.” Chimamanda Adichie

The KONY2012 video was released a couple of weeks ago by Invisible Children. This video is one of the many examples which continue to spread the single sided story of Uganda/ Ugandans – as one thing: voiceless and helpless. The video raised a lot of criticism both locally and internationally. It is against this background that we (at UgandaSpeaks) have decided to empower fellow Ugandans to harness the power of social media to tell their own stories.
