    (International Human Rights Arts Movements, 2023-01-10) Arineitwe, Evaristo
    Abstract The following poems have been written by Arineitwe Evaristo, an upcoming poet from Kabale District, Western Uganda. His first poem is titled “The Return” and was published in an anthology titled Where Broken Hearts Go and Other Poems edited by Egara Kabagi (Etal). Other three poems; “Loud Silence”, “The War Mongers” and “Boiling Point” have been published in Thorns Tears and Treachery, a Collection of Poems, Essays and Artwork on the Sudanese Civil War by The International Human Rights Arts Movement (IHRAM). This poetry writing is basically informed by the political dilemma that grips the African continent after independence (Neo-colonialism), nostalgia or/and reminiscence, the devastating effects of climate change and life in general. Tentatively titled The Last Flicker is yet another collection of poetry that is yet to be published.

He relates and locates his study well within the precepts of other relevant and/or recent publications. This helps to identify the knowledge gap, namely sidelining the informal sector in the promotion and use of Kiswahili in Uganda, hence the relevancy of this research proposal which apparently seeks to intervene by involving the informal sector in Kiswahili language promotion and use in Uganda.
