In early April 2014 Tsion Asmare and I travelled from the CCL Ethiopia office in Addis Ababa to the source of the Nile in Jinja, Uganda. Jinja, the point at which Lake Victoria gives way to the Nile River, was the scenic location of the April training seminar of PYPA – the Program for Young Politicians in Africa, sponsored by KIC – Christian Democratic
International Center.
