    Malaria? Mola medical centre

    by muguruki Updated Jun 12, 2013

    These people were brilliant when I came down with a fever and shakes. Soon after arriving I had a consultation and then malaria test straight away afterwards.

    After 20 mins I came back to find my test was positive and had the first of 5 injections to sort it out and thankfully the artesunate jabs did the trick.

    All the staff here were helpfull and the young chap who used to stick a needle in me arse was especially cheerfull.

    Independence monument

    As the sun was setting one evening in Gulu town I took a photo of a monument that marked the sunsetting on the British empire in Uganda.

    A rather strange looking monument it is too. The plaque on the front reads "This is the exact point where the British flag was lowwered and the Ugandan national flag was raide marking our independence on October 9, 1962."

    Sadly this concrete and stone lump that marks the independence of this fine nation is not in some public park or even in the middle of a roundabout but in the compound of Mega FM radio station.

    Swim at the Acholi inn pool

    by muguruki Written Dec 14, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This hotel must have once been a really nice gaff but now is looking slightly faded.

    It costs 7,000 UGX for a swim but they don’t provide a towel “The manager stopped it when people were cleaning their shoes with the towels” I was told by the young girl who worked there.

    “Nothing works here” I was told by another customer, a French guy who was also using the pool. Not sure whether he meant this particular hotel, Gulu or Uganda. Certainly only a trickle of water came out of the tap in the toilet at the Acholi inn pool. But I was well glad of a dip in the decent sized pool on a hot sticky day in Gulu.

    There’s an extensive menu here including western and Chinese meals though myself I never ate at the Acholi.

    Not far from the District HQ is a monument erected to remember those children who have been abducted in the war in the north by The Lords Resistance Army.

    District HQ

    Worth having a look at while you are in Gulu town is the district head quarters. The District HQ is a rather elaborately decorated building just to the north of the town centre.
