igobe
 n.— «He has coined another phrase comparing what is happening within the Parliamentary Advocacy Forum (PAFO) to igobe (Runyankore-Rukiga for dogs on heat). “You see when dogs are in igobe, they cease reasoning. They sometimes move into the road, totally oblivious of traffic. These people are busy pulling each other into the road and the Movement bus is coming hooting. If they do not move out, it will obviously crush them.» —“All the President’s Men—And Women” by William Tayeebwa The Monitor (Kampala, Uganda) Apr. 25, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
