We met Arinaitwe Andrew on our way to Ntinda through the Kyambogo University short cut. He vends fruit on a one wheeled cart which he has to push around door to door to meet old and potential clients.We were hungry so we stopped him and bought some fruit. He’s been doing it for over five years since he entered the city. He sells mostly pineapples, mangoes, water melons. This time he only had delicious yellow mangoes on his cart.
While at work he hides his dreaded hair under a hair sock. He was losing potential clients who were willing to support him but were uncomfortable with the dreads most being under the assumption that he would spend what they give him on his hair instead of doing something more productive. So he usually lets them out only at night.
