About Tom Karemire

When Tom Karemire started working at The Heart of Edirisa at Lake Bunyonyi in 2004, the place suddenly became totally peaceful and secure. Before Tom we tried a couple of other nightwatchmen and had many problems. But with him, a completely new era started - an era that we are still enjoying!

Tom was born in 1945. He didn't have enough money to continue past his primary schooling so he became a guard at Uganda Prisons. He retired at the end of the 1980s, after 16 years of service. Still, he couldn't really take a break. Having many children proved taxing, especially when it came to school fees, so he worked as a watchman at different campsites around Lake Bunyonyi before we found him.

He met his wife Provia at a church at Rubona, on a peninsula close to Tom's island. She was pretty, hardworking and two years younger than him.

He duly paid the bride price and in 1969 she moved in with him. He didn't go for any extra wives; he felt even one was a handful. Tom and Provia had 8 children but one of them unfortunately drowned in the lake, a fate so common in an area where few people know how to swim.

Tom is iconic. He is smart, witty and, as we say in Uganda, very stubborn. He can be a reluctant talker, but once you begin talking with him, he will open up and there is so much to learn. Visit him at his homestay and make a deep connection - our guide will help you engage Tom, just come prepared with all your questions...

,I love the print but I was afraid of getting it dirty since I just toss my wallet in my bag and patent leather is pretty vulnerable to permanent stains. I ended up getting the leopard insolite and I love it! I'd say go for it if you love it! lv bags.
