Juban Hallucinations


In the company of three Dutch filmmakers, my boss, a fellow election observer, and I were whisked away in a bright red Hummer to a ‘local concert.’ We trailed after the film crew following one of Juba’s richest ex-pat war profiteers. With us was his retired American military officer friend who was training the SPLA. He was busy exclaiming “we own this f**king place” to anyone in sight, including the SPLA. Much to our bemusement, we ended up in the VIP lounge of Ugandan rappers, Bread and Butter.
