Kelele @Makerere Poetry Night is a Poetic Noise hosted every fortnight Friday at MUK Art Gallery

By the name of the this ever-growing poetry night one is immediately struck by the employment of rhyme and insightfully a glimpse of what transpires at Makerere’s Art gallery is boldly embedded in the title Kelele At Makerere. A night that was inspired and started by a Legal Student Donald Maasa and his colleagues in 2015’s last quarter is aimed at changing the view people have about the prestigious University.

Makerere University is synonymous with Kelele which loosely translates to noise from Swahili and according to Donald the poetry night is aimed at giving poets and related artists to create a rather distinct sound which in his words loves to call “poetic noise”. The event takes place every fortnight on a Friday and as i write this, it is only two days to the next event/ poetry night. A number of renowned acts have graced this steady growing and insightful event like Fagil Mandy(former UNEB Chairman), Slim MC(poet,spoken word artist) and others. The future of this event seems so bright as so many of the poets are determined to share their spoken truth on a number of diverse topics including politics, love and other socially burning topics.

The beauty of Kelele @ Makerere is that from its inception numbers have increased and most importantly the theme driven nights give the different nights purpose. The poets are often joined by Spoken word artists and rappers too to give the noise a higher sense of poeticalness. Surprisingly there is no fee charged to the different performances or nights for it is totally free and the only fee is UShs 0/= plus your presence. A small collection is only asked from well wishers and open to anyone who enjoys poetic noise.

For anyone interested in a poetry night that is so far well-coordinated and dedicated to change the views people have about Makerere University and Life generally(since these poets deliver from points of view that are from different walks of life), Kelele should be on your menu. The event takes place at Makerere Art Gallery at the School of Industrial and Fine Art from 7 pm-10 pm.

For this week of Women’s day on Friday 11 2016 there will be a Night to celebrate Women/females in general through a lot of poetry.

As we move closer to the 2016 Ugandan elections so many issues have been raised here and there. Bana Mutibwa being among the few activists to speak about politics boldly we have another quite objective spoken word piece Fit to lead from George the Poet. This poem serves as an iniative to use poetry to speak to the masses to try scan their selections.

George presents to us the motion of reflection as regards the candidates seeking our votes or our support. With the amazing work of Mike256 (formely known as Play) this production allows George to deliver his views with a story telling. Events highlighted are of the most competitive three presidential candidates ( incumbent President Museveni, Dr. Kiiza Besiege and Amama Mbabazi without subjecting the intention of the argument.
