…Voter Education

IMG_20150521_141526I had an opportunity to conduct voter education through Neighborhood Assemblies supported by DENIVA Uganda and Kick Corruption out of Kigezi.This was conducted in Kitumba Sub-county and Kyanamira Sub-county,Kabale district.

As we approach the general elections of 2016 in Uganda, citizens ought to know their duties, rights and responsibilities in the electoral processes. However, in the past elections of 2011,there were various electoral offences practiced by both political actors and citizens of which they were ignorant about so through various discussions, citizens are now aware of these offences and their penalties. They finally appreciated the need for free, fair and peaceful elections hence pledging to fight against voter bribery.
