In a research debrief I heard a passing mention of ‘Nkuba Kyeyo.’ Wondering if this was some new form of Japanese management practice or suchlike, I asked the origin of the term.
Nkuba Kyeyo are economic migrants from Uganda. The term translates as ‘I sweep’, but has come to represent the name for all economic refugees or immigrants from Uganda, rather than the job they do.
Kyeyo is Bantu for Broom.
