Times are hard. When we get holidays we know it is trouble, why? Our source of income, (read parents) will stop giving us that upkeep because, well, we are at home, so they see no need of giving us money. It is worse when you’re doing an internship that is not paying. Trust Makerere University girls, they will always have a plan A,B,C and D. As the adage goes, desperate times call for desperate actions; most Muk girls have resorted to ‘begging’ for airtime on Facebook.
“I was chatting with a Muk girl called Busingyet Sarah on Facebook for the first time. She asked me to send her airtime of shs500, well I sent it to her knowing it was argent. The second time I greeted her and instead of replying my greeting, she again asked for airtime. I insisted on asking how she was, she just used swear words on me,” narrates Humphrey a Uganda Christian University Student.
Emma Musoke, an unemployed graduate recalls a day when a Muk chic inboxed asking him to send her data bundles. “We had never talked before, this chic boldly send me a message asking me buy her bundles of 50MB. I was in utter shock. These girls should really style up,” Musoke shares his experience.
The economy is really biting these Makerere beautifies. I think the government should come out to help them.
