January has pushed some of us to the wall but we are still hanging on. In conversations today, we bring you some of the things Ugandans are discussing on social media in this scorching month.
Just like the trendy saying in town "Omwavu wa kuufa" meaning the poor to die, tweeps with the help of multiple pictures of stuffed frogs, have been expressing their financial woes in January.
In fact, the hashtag 'Omwavu' has become so trendy that most people are using it as a marketing strategy.

From the look of things, i believe there has never been a better marketing strategy than that one of jumping onto a trend to earn yourself some recognition. Lots of brands are doing just that i guess you better hop onto the trend.

The main drivers of this growth have been increased private and public sector activity, supported by relatively stable global and regional economic environment.#RwenzoriExpo pic.twitter.com/DgKUFOXndJ— Adoa Ernest (@adoa_ernest) January 23, 2020
3. Business startup
Have you ever started up any business? Apparently, there is a heated discussion on twitter about starting up small businesses, maintaining them and their challenges.
During my campus time (MUK), I would buy perfume from Kikuubo at 5k to 7k and move around hostels and halls where I would sell them Between 25k and 30k. I would go on to sell the perfume in Kyambogo and Mbarara University. #businessstartup— Bweyogerererian🇺🇬 (@samename_jethro) January 23, 2020

Ba dia, if you’re friend has a business. Remember they are trying to get a life. Don’t beg for offers, buy from them and never pay. Unless if someone gives you the offer willingly.— Ghost Bae (@RitaStyles20) January 23, 2020
Respect your friend’s hustles!! #BusinessStartUp
in 2017, after breaking up with baby daddy, finances were low, my grandmother took me in, the I determined not to feed off her salary, I then started my very first business of cookies (200-500) and such a mess but my girl never lacked. #businessstartup— Cookie Lion 👑💫 (@eugenegena46) January 23, 2020
