Uganda's Moonshine Epidemic

Ugandans are the hardest drinking Africans in the motherland, both in terms of per capita consumption and the hooch they choose to chug. Waregi, or "war gin," is what they call the local moonshine, and it makes the harshest Appalachian rotgut taste like freaking Bailey's.

    Kind of fucked up they were kicking at the goat before butchering. Very unfortunate that alcoholism is so prevalent here. Maybe they should smoke some weed and stop kicking animals lol

    Insane, the way they're behaving in this country. The poor goat too. People in third world countries treat animals very cruel. They don't have a thought for an animals SUFFERING.CHEMICAL Waste to give the brew a little twist! Wunderbar. Their way the Village behave when drinking has an extremly high entertainment value. That goes in some way if one have to say sober at a big party were a lot of people get solid drunk..They give childrens about 1,5 years olds plenty of the stuff. Not suprised. I mean they don't understand the long time effects of drinking large amounts, of "Gin" really often.Dyker ändå upp en missbruks "konsulat", Kenya in the program. But he says that to give to the toddlers is part of their culture....And the horrible people are kicking and tauntning the goat, thinking it very funny before one of them slits the poor animals throat.

    I'm expecting that at the end our man here is all cross-eyed and disheveled, sitting on a bench smoking a hand-rolled cigarette and having a loud confused argument about nothing with whoever happened to be sitting there. I think the local government should invest in some improved mashing and distilling equipment! There are books about this kind of work, it's a pretty mature technology. It wouldn't take such a big investment to bring that up to world standards and have an exportable product! Set up a school somewhere for different aspects of brewing and distilling....

    My parents were farmers , I'm familiar with butchering animals - mostly chickens - ducks - rabbits-piglets -but not kicking and pulling - pushing on them thats a big NO- we always raise them as humanly as possible - keeping them on good feed - fresh water , enough space - and "finishing" them as quick as possible so they don't suffer that much. ( hitting in the head - than cutting their necks) We always felt sorry for them - especially for thoose with a name given 😀 I support farming - and probably never turn vegetarian - but just like humans animals need some respect too.
