Name: Musanjufu Benjamin Kavubu
Social Media Handle/Username: Benjamin WATCH
Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I am Musanjufu Benjamin Kavubu son of Samuel Kavubu Kamya, grandson of Elisaninia Kamya who was a son of Ziva-Okumu from Singo County in Buganda north of Lake Victoria (Uganda) East Africa. I am many things, I studied procurement at Kyambogo University and still a scholar of the supply chain. I deal in construction and property management, I have written a few articles on it on my blog. I am a blogger, it started as a hobby but at the moment it’s something serious that it’s on my CV. I am a progressive millennial with an open mind to the world I find myself in, I appreciate liberal socialism when it comes to economics so to some people I come off as a Marxist but capitalism needs to be reinvented. It’s a fact. I am leftist to the extreme and pro-people I regard myself as an athlete to certain standards because I play rugby in the Ugandan lower league for a club called Kyambogo Rugby.
What Inspires You Every day? : The immediate world around me, there is a lot that needs to be done. The desire and need to make things better inspires me every day in everything I strive to do. Humanity too inspires me. So long as something is not barbaric and animalistic or bestial I would want to be a part of it. So long as other people will find delight in something and it’s not necessarily about money. Those not doing the right thing give the inspiration to do better.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: I will be extreme on this
“We don’t want war, but we are not scared by it if it comes. We shall not hesitate to protect ourselves or fight back if attacked” by Hassan Saide Nasslulah the head of Hezbollah a political party in Lebanon and a terrorist organization according to the United States and Israel.
We live in a world where war comes from places like family and personal businesses so we have to be ready to fight to fit in if you remember Darwin’s theory of survival for the fittest.
However nice you may be with your dealing in life, however good your intentions maybe someone will cross you and you will need to be hard if need be. I may sound violent but as an African, I know how fighting anyway possible can be the only option not just to surviving but life.
So for me, I am always ready for the ugly times because they will always show up.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : To make the world a better place by doing the smallest of things, for those that I meet in my life and most importantly for the environment. I think if focused on something else I would be living for nothing, the world is so messed up already.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I have been all over, I think I felt every emotion there is to feel in the universe. The feeling of uncertainty was so strong but I made the most of it. I used every recourse to connect to the world that seemed so far away from with the isolation and lockdowns.
What is a message you would like to give others? : Since I have been in contact with content creators mostly on the internet in the last 12 months. I observed how abrupt they wanted to reach greater heights which is not possible.
It applies to every aspect of life, every achievement takes time and effort. We can not jump from one thing to another because it’s not producing a windfall as fast as we wish.
Wait, and keep on keeping on.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I am not against everything, I am just critical of everything. I can never agree with those that are corrupt. Money is not my motivation if you ever want me to be on your team.
