RED roses, chocolate, lingerie, candle-lit dinners. Valentine’s Day, February 14, is here again, when lovers exchange gifts to express their love for each other. VICKY WANDAWA, CAROL KASUJJA and BRIAN MAYANJA bring you what different people have planned for the day

Betty Nakibuuka, musician

I will buy him flowers and a card and then take him out for dinner at Serena Hotel. You see, when people grow old and get used to each other, the romance also dies. But I met him because of love, so I have to keep the fire burning.

Nasser Sebaggala, presidential advisor on general duties

You know I have everything I need at home, so I will be home with my wife, Gera. We shall prepare dinner and then watch a romantic movie. I do not want to go for a concert because musicians have nothing new for their fans.

Ingrid Turinawe, FDC women’s league leader

I am a retired lady. I gave up on love things 10 years ago to concentrate on politics, activism and look after my family.

Norbert Mao, DP president

My Valentine is in Nairobi, studying, so I will spend most of my Valentine’s Day talking to her on phone. I will depend on technology. The good thing is, this year’s Valentine’s Day falls on a working day, so I will not feel so bad. But in the evening, I will have dinner with my nine-year-old son, Nathan.

Dora Namaala, presenter, Bukedde TV

After my show, I will take my mother out for lunch then in the evening, I will meet the man of my life and we will shower each other with love. I love to be pampered.

Mark Kigozi, Real Life Church 

I have not through that, but dinner is definitely a must.

Naggayi Nabilah Sempala, Woman MP, Kampala

We have a hectic work schedule, so such days come once in a while to give us a break. I believe in the day and I will celebrate it. I do not know yet where or how I will celebrate it, but I will.

Tamale Mirundi, State House spokesperson

I am not a fool to celebrate things I do not understand. What is Valentine’s Day? Is it part of African culture? This day was created by the Whites to sell their products. How can an old man like me be seen buying flowers and wearing a red shirt, all in the name of love? If Europeans are perfect when it comes to celebrating love, why is it that they have high levels of marriage break-ups? Now, some foolish Ugandans will spend beyond their earnings in order to be part of the day. On that day, I will be fi nalising writing the last chapter of my book.

Irene Mulyagonja, Inspector General of Government

This is not a day I consider important on my calendar because I do not believe in hyping love only on such days. I have a family and believe that every day is an opportunity to show them that I love them by treating them in a special way. Also, from a Christian perspective, it’s not a day that is recognised, so I do not recognise it as well.

Msgr. Gerald Kalumba, Christ the King Church

I do not even know when Valentine’s Day is, so I do not have any plans. I am always with my loved one, Jesus Christ. Besides that, I did not grow up with such a culture.

George Mulindwa aka ‘Afande Kelekele,’ comedian, Bukedde TV

What I want to do is impossible. I want to take her out for a crocodile ride, but the Uganda Wildlife Authority will not allow us. But if that fails, we shall sit on a man-made crocodile. Guess you have seen those ones made out of clay.

Bernard Luyiga, Makerere University councillor

Now that I have a wife, I will celebrate Valentine’s Day. On that day, we shall go for prayers, then lunch at Sheraton Hotel. In the evening, we are likely to watch a live band.

Capt. Mike Mukula

I have a plan, but it is a secret. I do not want to reveal it.

Matthew Nabwiso, Marketer

Definitely, there will be a candle-lit dinner for just the two of us, although I have not yet figured out where. After dinner, I will unveil my surprise for her.

Allan Ssewanyana Makindye, division councillor

I will watch a love movie at Theatre La Bonita with my wife.
