On her political views in Uganda

When I look at politics I wish I didn’t have a child, I’d speak more because then, I’d have nothing to lose. I’d not care about the repercussions, but I have a daughter, I want her to go to school tomorrow. I don’t want her to find dead bodies on the streets. Like all that, I don’t want her to go through the trauma of a war, that’s why I go slow when it comes to politics. Of course, I have a side and by now people know what side I’m on. It’s a little too obvious that by now Uganda needs a change.

On feeling accomplished in her career 

It’s an empty space where I am, because when you work so hard to get to a point and you finally get there, it’s so hard to get inspiration to move forward. Because every day you’re like ‘that’s impossible, I can’t get there, lemme do this, lemme work hard.’ Then suddenly it’s like boom, it has happened! So now I’m like… I need the next inspiration. That’s where I am, it’s empty, it’s lonely. That’s where I am and I need to find a way to move from there.
