The Democratic Party Women’s League yesterday launched what they called a massive human rights sensitization week aimed at educating largely women about their rights, prostate mobilizing them for party activities and also recruiting more women into the party.
The DP Publicity Secretary Kenneth Paul Kakande says this is one of the processes of completing the party strategic plan of 2016-2021 in preparation for the coming elections in 2021.
While addressing the media at city house Kakande pointed out that without question, DP would not function well without a well-functioning Women Organization, especially given that women constitute 51.2% of the entire population of Uganda.
He says the Women’s league plans to carry out a number of activities like organize regional workshops in the four regions of Uganda, carrying out talk shows on Human rights in the country.
“The workshops will be under the theme: Strengthening Multi-Party Democracy Human Rights and rule of Law in Uganda; Empowering DP Women to participate in decision making”
“These are all aimed at rejuvenating the structure of the Women League and empowering the DP women members at all levels to be able to carry out the tasks the party constitution bestows upon them.”
Yesterday morning, the Northern Regional workshop commenced at Hotel Mwaka in Gulu District and was attended by District Woman leaders from the districts that constitute the greater Northern Region.
Some workshops are expected to be graced by the party President Norbert Mao and some other members of the Executive Committee those.
