On Thursday 30th August, 2017, ‘Uganda for All’ an independent initiative aimed at creating solutions to Africa’s long standing problems hosted a dialogue on, Democracy and Social-economic transformation, moderated by Charlotte Kemigyisha at Hotel Triangle Kampala on Buganda Road.

In his engaging presentation, Prof Nuwagaba noted a need for a complete service delivery which will instill hard work and patriotism among the Ugandans. He highlighted with examples a need for African countries to practice democracy which can transform the economy rather than continuing with current trend of copied or borrowed democracy.

Mercy Kainobwisho said Ugandan laws are indigenous enough to end the country’s problems. She also that there is a need to empower youths as a core factor to create sustainable development.

“Our laws aren’t isolating, everybody is equal before the law and democracy can’t survive where there is no rule of law,” she said.

Ibrahim Kitaata, Secretary General National Youth Council in his presentation said there is need to have youth involved in more economic activities than sitting in urban areas looking for white-collar jobs are not available.

“The youth must create and innovate and explore every opportunity available for them. This will reduce unemployment rates to a less percent and will create more jobs for the young generation,” Kitaata said.
