Fasting: A spiritual discipline 

Kakembo Micheal, a 24-year-old Boda Boda rider based on a stage along Kayunga Road in Mukono is taking a nap on his bike in the afternoon. Clad in the trademark jacket that Boda riders in Uganda love to wear, I wonder how he can afford to keep himself so warm in such skyrocketing heat. I notice that his lips are cracked and dry. I decide to wake him up and I also realize that his eyes are red and teary. I start to imagine that he is probably sick.  However, after engaging him in a casual conversation, he admits that he last had a meal the previous evening as he was observing the spiritual discipline of fasting and prayer.
