Translation of my story in Uganda: When I was there I walked with a friend with rasta-hair in een small street. We were stopped by the police who asked me if he was bothering me. When I denied the asked me for money because they did have any supper yet. Meanwhile we walked towards the crowded street and then they were gone. I told the story to a police-officer and he said it was know, but difficult to do something abt. it.
