This Sunday, Mathias Kiwanuka, the New York Giants' linebacker, will compete in his hometown of Indianapolis against the New England Patriots for the NFL championship. But he will have his home country, Uganda, on his mind.  He'll also be thinking of his grandfather, Benedicto Kiwanuka, Uganda's first prime minister after the country won self-government in 1962 from Britain.
