Well, No I don't, and here's why:
Laundry Detergent & Clothes Line
On my first trip I took laundry soap and a clothes line. The first issue is getting water to wash and rinse with. I then found out it was very easy to find someone in every venue who would jump at the opportunity to do laundry for a few Uganda Shillings (which they truly need). Not only did they do a better job in washing and rinsing (they knew were to get plenty of water), they also ironed my clothes (with a charcoal iron).
Knife, Fork, & Spoon
No venue that I have been in failed to provide at least a fork and spoon and I think if they did not, I would feel very uncomfortable taking my own out and eating with them. Most Ugandans eat with their fingers (and are quite good at it). You will find it a common practice before you eat for someone to come to you with a pitcher of warm water and a plastic pan with a bar of soap in it. This will allow you to wash your hands before the meal and this is usually repeated after the meal as well.
