Ka Tutandike works to end child malnutrition

Hunger is the way a person's body signals that it needs to eat, and malnutrition is a lack of the right nutrients in the body.  Over 56,000 children under the age of 5 die each year in Uganda from nutrition-related causes.

Trustee of Ka Tutandike Trust UK addresses Nigerian President and Cabinet on Nigeria's National Day

There were moments when I thought this was a dream. It could not be real. Maybe I was being lured to Nigeria as part of some 419 scam. I was being asked – sounded out rather – to come to Nigeria to give the main speech on Nigeria’s National Day. Furthermore it seemed to be at the request of the President.

A few months ago I got a call asking me to sign 40 copies of my book to be sent to Nigeria. President Goodluck Jonathan had read the chapter on Nigeria and wanted to give copies to all his cabinet. I was naturally flattered but I did wonder whether he was saying: “This is a brilliant analysis of the Nigerian situation” or “My God, see what people out there are saying about us. We had better do something about it!”
