Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi has this evening sent out a message urging his supporters and all agents of change to take part in the voter verification exercise that kicked off on Monday.
Uganda’s Electoral Commission has started a nationwide exercise to verify particulars of voters on the National Voters’ Register using village (L.C. 1) councils.
The purpose of the verification exercise is to enable members of the particular village to scrutinize the respective Register and identify persons who are not eligible to be on the Voters’ Register for their village, for example, the dead and those who left the area. Voters will be able to confirm their particulars on the National Voters’ Register.
“There is also an ongoing exercise meant to identify Persons with Disability (PWDs) in each village for purposes of compiling their register. I encourage all our friends who belong to that category to go out and be registered. One of our core values as #PeoplePower is inclusion. We want to elevate the situation of Persons with Disability and guarantee their rights!” Bobi Wine posted on Monday on his Facebook page.
The purpose of identifying all Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) in the respective villages is for purposes of compiling a clean Village PWDs register. Particulars of verified PWDs will be compiled in the Village PWD Register book provided by the EC. The exercise will be conducted by the Parish Supervisor (Verification Officer).
The Local Council I (LCI) chairpersons shall convene Village Council meetings in their respective villages during which the Parish Supervisor (Verification Officer) will conduct the above verification and identification.
Bobi wine has already declared a struggle to end Museveni’s monarchical type of rule and despite all the efforts to discourage him from the government, he’s set to appear on the ballot paper.
