Growing up in Jinja district, excuse me, City - in the early 1990's, we were constantly inundated with stories of how this beautiful nook was once the industrial and innovation engine of Uganda and some argued East Africa. Sadly, by the time we were old enough to fully understand what both industry and innovation meant, Jinja was clearly a shadow of its past self. While most industries had collapsed or were barely operational, the ethos of an industrial hub were still prevalent. This may partly explain why many of my school peers are now budding industrialists. We might have missed out on the unrivaled experience of working on the assembly lines, but we certainly inherited the soft skills from the elders.
