The process in which government is using to bulldozing its presidential Age Limit lifting decision and pushing the people to endorse it isn’t practical. It’s now a discussion of either you are on this side or the other, with no room for dialogue. What of those with no side? Can’t we negotiate on what can […]

We Take Back Our Power from the Military or Corrupt Leaders by Raising Words

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Governance, Social Justice, Youth Empowerment

It’s been so long since I had a say on the power structures of my community (East Africa). Many have risen up to say power is military supremacy; others have worshiped money and wealth. I guess they are correct in their own right based on what they have settled to believe as portrayed by those […]

The Ugandan government has famously been known for passing laws & great or remarkable policies which never get chance to see fortnight’s daylight or even less. Reasons, still not fully established, but one can’t help to question, “Is the democratic system of Uganda is a joke?” Following the recent SIM card registration policy passed by […]

How To Empower Women… Will It Be Politically Or Economically?

Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Governance, Social Justice, Youth Empowerment

It’s not a question of either economic empowerment for women or political empowerment for women, but rather it is both!

The Divisions Amongst Ugandans in the Post-Election Era. #YouthVoice

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Governance, Social Justice, Youth Empowerment

It is a very unlike-African behaviour, particularly for Ugandans, not to celebrate after the conclusion of something as encompassing and as important as a presidential election. It was almost eerie the way the whole nation went into a fog of silence after the elections, which led me to think that even though people voted, they were […]

My Thoughts On The 2016 Presidential Elections #UgandaDecides

The seating Government is not willing to hand over power. Besigye has more to deal with than just the President.

As NRM Youth leaders we have spent a considerable amount of time in the last 5 years selflessly building the party ideology among fellow youth and the Uganda Community at large, mobilizing for its expansion, strengthening and establishment to the day today trends.
