Kyambogo University one of the largest public universities in Uganda is organising a public lecture under the theme “The Road to 2021, How Prepared are we?”.
This lecture is scheduled to take place on 2, 2019, at 2:00 pm in the CTF building.
Kyambogo intends to fully participate in creating public awareness on how ready the voters, as well as the general public, need to be as the country eye for the highly competitive national elections come 2021.
According to Kyambogo, a new study conducted in 13 districts of Uganda by Democratic Engagement and Action shows that many people involved in election preparations and Ugandan politics anticipate violence around the 2021 election.
Ugandans are already stirred up for the 2021 General Elections and political parties are working to win the hearts and minds of an increasingly excited population.
There’s a lot in the public domain about electoral reforms, levelled ground for all parties and candidates and much more.
Kyambogo University supports pro-active activities aimed at making a fundamental contribution to democratic governance to make communities safer places to live and work in. This is the call for the public lecture.
Justice Simon Mugenyi Byabakama, Chairperson Electoral Commission is a keynote speaker. The panellists include Ofwono Opondo, the government spokesperson, Nobert Mao, the DP President, Crispin Kaheru, former Coordinator CCEDU and Clare Ninsiima, the Senior Legal Officer, Kyambogo University.
It should be noted that every Ugandan who is eighteen (18) and above has a right to vote and therefore encouraged to fully participate in all activities as may be required by the Electoral Commission to effect this cause.
