This is indeed an elections season, Thursday the 18th of February, registered voters in Uganda cast their votes to decide the President and members of parliament. Today the Ministry of public service of Uganda has declared tomorrow as a public holiday, to allow the next phase of elections to take place.
The local government leaders to be voted tomorrow in a country wide exercise include local council chairpersons, councillors and mayors. The permanent secretary Ministry of Public Service Uganda Mrs. Catherine Bitarakwate Musingwiire has today written a letter to the permanent sectary Office of the Prime minister (OPM) asking them to announce on the national television that tomorrow is declared a public holiday as directed by the deputy Prime Minister and Minister of public service.
Those who didn’t participate in the recently concluded general elections should have no excuse tomorrow and to those who did vote, you are more than welcome again.
In Kampala we shall experience one of the most sought for and sensitive posts which is that of ‘Kampala Mayor’ where we see incumbent Erias Lukwaago to go head to head with NRM’s Veteran singer Ragga Dee in a tight race.
We advocate for peaceful elections and wish all the candidates the best.
