HELLO Readers. Today I discuss the tricky, irritating and even offensive habit of bed-wetting on the part of children. By bed-wetting I mean urinating in bed while in sleep. This habit can be diabolical and even offending if the bed-wetter is an adult.

IF you talk of the media veterans of this country, earnestly you cannot miss the name of Paul Sozigwa who died a fortnight ago at the age of 83. Rather belatedly, I am obliged to pay tribute to his colossal contributions to this country as a technocrat, a journalist and a politician of our times.
