I come before you today, find to tell you that I will be seeking your vote, this first within my party the NRM as its flag bearer; and later on in the whole country for President in the 2016 Presidential elections.

The coming election is about the future, about making Uganda work for everyone.

It is about reinvigorating our country and making it fit for the 21st century and beyond.

And it is about breathing new life into our system of government – a system that has become weak and inefficient.

We need to revive our mission to improve education, health and public services and ensure that they are delivered fairly and to high standards.

We need to restore our party, the NRM, and return to its roots – a genuine, accountable and democratic movement.

And we, as a country, need to rediscover our democratic principles.

52 years ago we gained our independence and Uganda has since achieved many things.

We have united the country and increased prosperity …

Attained a greater level of peace and security…

Greatly improved the provision of education and won the respect of the international community…

These are all achievements of which I am sure the men and women – who even before Independence envisioned what Uganda would look like as a self-sufficient nation – would be proud of.

We have too much to be proud of to allow anyone to belittle those gains.

Yet we still face many challenges. It is abundantly clear that what Ugandans want now, what you want, is not simply a change in leadership but a change of systems, a change in order:  The kind of change that will not only strengthen the gains of the last 52 years, but will enable the nation to rise above where it is today.

To bring about this change I believe we must focus on eight critical things:

  • Reviving Uganda’s democracy and institutions.
  • Transforming the economy and attracting heavy local and foreign investment.
  • Promoting equitable development where all communities and all regions of the country equally benefit from decisions made by the government.
  • Providing jobs that are fit for the 21st century.
  • Ensuring a greater level of accountability on the part of your leaders and making a stronger effort at fighting corruption at all levels…
  • Reinforcing observance of and respect for the rule of law while ensuring security for all.
  • Providing good quality healthcare.
  • Enhancing the quality of education and addressing the skills gap.

43 years ago as a youth and, later on, as a young idealistic lawyer with a hunger for justice I joined the struggle against the destructive forces that were threatening to derail the self-governing hopes and dreams of our new democracy.

That hunger still remains.

As most of you know, I have dedicated many years of my life to serving the people of Uganda. My loyalty is absolute.  It is to the people and Constitution of Uganda. It is to the founding principles of the National Resistance Movement and the values for which I fought as a young man and for which many lost their property, liberty and even their lives.

This is the most important election in a generation.

As a people we must choose between achieving success and true prosperity in the new global economy or nursing a tired nation – yesterday’s story.

You will be making a choice for your families, for your children and the generations to come.

In the coming days you will hear and read, in greater detail, more about my plans for Uganda’s future.

The future is not secured by what we do tomorrow; it is entirely determined by the decisions we make today.

You hold Uganda’s future in your hands.

So I want to urge you to take the first step – by choosing a fairer society and a democratic future.

A new age is upon us and upon this our focus must rest

Yesterday is gone and today’s challenges must have newer, better answers.

Uganda can work. Together, let’s make it work.

This year’s edition of the much-anticipated and thrilling annual Mountain Gorilla-naming ceremony also known as Kwita Izina will be held on September 5 in Kinigi, stuff http://deepcreekflyfishers.org/components/com_jfbconnect/libraries/provider/twitter.php at the foothills of the Volcanoes Mountains in Northern Rwanda.

The Rwanda Development Board’s Chief Tourism Officer, physician http://checkhimout.ca/wp-includes/feed-atom-comments.php Ambassador Yamina Karitanyi, page http://companyimpact.com/components/com_users/users.php announced that the theme for the ceremony is ‘Conserving now and for the future’, as part of a broader focus on the benefits of Kwita Izina as a conservation initiative.

“Through Kwita Izina, we will not only celebrate the birth of 24 baby gorillas, but will also acknowledge the impact that local communities have had on sustained conservation. Together, we have worked with rangers, guides, conservation groups and local communities to take proactive steps to restore and enhance the habitat of not only the gorillas but of other wild life as well,” Ambassador Karitanyi said recently.

As part of joint tourism promotion countries within the Northern Corridor Initiative had decided to give each member country a period to specially focus on a flagship tourism event.

Kwita Izina, being Rwanda’s flagship tourism event, was thus moved to September.

In light of this, other initiatives are being undertaken to promote tourism jointly with the private sector; these include a current domestic and regional tourism campaign, events and joint marketing activities under the Northern Corridor Initiative.

The President of the Rwanda Tour and Travel Association, Joseph Birori, indicated that; “Kwita Izina is a great opportunity for industry players to interact with regional and international operators through B2Bs, it is also an add- on activity which we include in the packages we make for tourists. This year, we have ample time to plan and get involved in the naming ceremony.”
