We hate rubbing our celebrity status in your faces but there is no shame in telling you that we were among the very few who had a glimpse of Hollywood star Katie Holmes on her trip to Uganda last week.
Unfortunately, she gave us a media black-out, she refused to do an interview and even refused to have her pictures taken by any Ugandan, including those who hosted her.
Tom Cruise’s wife was here on the UN Millennium village charity mission and she stayed in Kampala Serena Hotel for over four days but very few Ugandans at the hotel could even tell she was the one. The UN-Millennium villages staff told us that Ms Holmes and fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger had both cancelled their trip to Uganda suggested a later date for the visit.
But it turned out that Holmes had come with her daughter Suri and they were moving around the country in a four-car convoy.
