Kissing, especially in the Ugandan setting is a very private affair. Many people shun the chance to appear affectionate in public.
They will hold hands, caress, lovingly stare into each other’s eyes, but when it is time to kiss, problems set in. You don’t blame them. Once in public, most Ugandans kiss like they are crossing a busy road.
