Wondering what's trending on social media right now? Here are the top trending topics in Uganda.
Of course English club football's biggest rivalry will be playing out this Sunday, when red-hot Liverpool visit struggling Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Liverpool have had a perfect start to the season, winning all their eight games played so far (24 points), leaving them sitting pretty at the dizzying top of the table.
An indifferent start to the campaign has seen Manchester United pick up an embarrassing nine points in eight games. They sit in 12th place - on the edges of the relegation zone.
Twitter user Kihumuro believes the Red Devils will slip to the relegation zone after facing the Reds.

So what do you think of the much anticipated game?
Will the red side of Manchester finally have some joy against an in-form Liverpool side? Or will Ole Gunnar Solskjær's woes continue?

Today (Wednesday 16) is World Food Day, a day celebrated in honour of the date of the founding of the United Nations's food agency, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in 1945.
All living things need food to survive, right?
By the way, did you know that about 29,000 Ugandan children die annually due to vitamin A-related causes?
That is one of the statistics that the US Mission in Uganda has collated in its tweet on the subject today.

Still on the subject, today, Twitter user Felix Kyebanakolanga decided to "do my most favourable dish", which is rice and beans. Apparently, he says, there is a secret we might be missing out on this dish.

Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata's recent face-off with musician Eddie Kenzo has been - and still is - the talk of the town.
Apparently, one user has gone for a satirical twist here - that Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford, whose team is struggling at the moment, will not slap on his scoring boots until Sheikh Muzaata apologises to Kenzo.
