TDA coordinator, http://compuaprende.com/components/com_community/templates/jomsocial/layouts/email.friends.invite.html.php Bishop Zac Niringiye has revealed that Mbabazi was handed nomination forms yesterday and that he also raised some proposals for some areas that need amendments in the protocol.

The bishop however highlighted that Mbabazi must first sign the TDA protocol without calling for alterations and then append his signature on the Citizens’ Compact on Free and Fair elections.

Mbabazi is currently left with less a few minutes to sign the TDA protocol if he is to join the race for selection of the coalition candidate since he is not yet a member of the alliance.

By the time of publication, the former Preimer was still held in traffic on his way from Jinja where he had another rally foiled by Police.

Bishop Niringiye explained that the protocol does create space for anyone wishing to become TDA flag bearer to join as an independent candidate without necessarily being backed by a party or member organization.

“We must understand that Mbabazi’s NRM pro-change pressure group was behind the formation of the protocol but up to date, they are not members since the group is not yet a signatory.”

“If Mbabazi walks in now to stand as an independent, he must be endorsed by 5 signatories to the protocol before his nominations can be processed. On top of that, he must declare agreement to the protocol.”

The coalition spokesperson, Wafula Ogutu told journalists that despite receiving concerns from Mbabazi, his quest for nomination must be processed after signing the protocol the way it is.

“There is no way I can approach a CBO in our village and tell them that before joining, they must change their constitution; this has never worked anywhere. He must sign to the protocol the way it is if he wants the coalition flag.”

The alliance maintained that it can’t alter its roadmap for only one person stating that the members are set for a summit from which they will declare their joint candidate by Monday, September 15.

The Democratic Alliance has tasked the ruling NRM government to immediately call for a dialogue on how political and electoral reforms as enshrined in the Citizens Compact on Free and Fair elections can be implemented ahead of the 2016 general elections.

“In the interest of ensuring peace and stability in our country, here http://creativecommons.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortcodes/twitchtv.php we demand for genuine dialogue with the government to agree over reforms; we remain open to such dialogue until September 18, nurse http://centerforblackbelt.org/wp-includes/default-constants.php 2015 and demand response by this time, tadalafil http://deborahmillercounselor.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ftpsockets.php ” revealed TDA spokesperson, Wafula Ogutu while addressing journalists in Naguru.

“Should government remain stubborn and intransigent as it has continued to do, TDA will in consultation with the citizens agree on and take appropriate actions,” Wafula assured journalists.

Wafula said that history has shown that there is a limit on how long governments can ignore their citizens, emphasizing that TDA is still committed to offer the necessary leadership to ensure that power is restored to the citizens.

The constitution, he added, commands the organizing of regular, free and fair elections or referenda as the primary mechanisms through which the citizens shall express their will and consent on who shall govern them and how they should be governed.

He added that the only elections commanded by the constitution is one that must be free and fair and any election short of this standard is a violation of the constitution and the power of citizens.

“In addition to many electoral violations, TDA is particularly concerned that the incumbent regime is actively organizing and deploying instruments of violence including different forms of militia groups such as the infamous Kalangala Action Plan and the deployment of Interahamwe version of militias called Crime Preventers under the disguise of community policing.”

The opposition’s quest to have electoral reforms in place ahead of next year’s elections suffered a major blow last month when parliament passed the Constitutional Amendment Bill excluding most of the input from the opposition side.

 
WorldRemit is one of the world’s leading online money transfer service providers. The company offers a seamless customer experience through mobile apps and website.

WorldRemit focuses on connecting to Telco-operated Mobile Money services around the world, see http://continentalagra.com/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/listo.php which allow customers to send money directly to a mobile phone.

ChimpReports caught up with Alix Murphy, search http://debbiehowes.com/wp-includes/pluggable.php the senior mobile Analyst at WorldRemit on phone from London:

Give a brief on WorldRemit?

The London-based company was founded in 2010 by Dr Ismail Ahmed. WorldRemit lets users transfer money internationally, http://crunchydomesticgoddess.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-client.php and its services span mobile money transfers and digital wallets.

WorldRemit is available to money-senders in 50 countries. A further 70 countries are able to receive funds, taking its total international presence to 120 countries.

The company enables customers to send money online by several methods, namely cash pick-up, bank transfer, mobile money and airtime top-up.

The company has seen a huge take off in the last 18 months. Backed by venture capital, at the end of 2014 WorldRemit received $ 40 million from Accel partners.

Furthermore, in February this year, the company raised a staggering $ 100 million funding from Technology Cross over Ventures.

How different is WorldRemit from other Money transfer service providers?

Besides being an online money transfer service provider, we offer a far more convenient service and are inherently better placed in terms of compliance than traditional agent-based money transfer companies.

We work in close partnership with major banks and telecom partners like MTN, Airtel, Tigo, and Vodafone to deliver a convenient, secure, and trusted service all over the world.

What Advantage do you have over other players like Western Union or MoneyGram?

As an online service, we don’t have the inefficiency and expense that comes with the traditional model of money transfers.

WorldRemit is fast, instant and money can be received at any time of the day. No need to go to the bank.

We have been referred to as the whatsApp of money because of our fast kind of experience. We also offer the most options for money transfer.

The growth of Mobile Money also presents a huge opportunity for recipients of remittances – one can now receive a money transfer from abroad directly into their Mobile Money account.

Why did you choose to tap into the African Market?

WorldRemit decided to venture into Africa not only because our founder is from Somaliland but also for the reason that Africa has been the most over charged and underserved region in the world when it comes to money transfer.

What Challenges do you face as an online money transfer service?

Our challenges are quite different from the traditional money transfer services. One of our great challenges is the high expense charges faced.

Furthermore, cash is very difficult to track and it’s hard to verify cheques. This is a challenge that most money transfer services face.

For that reason many players have been conned of millions of dollars. However in order to control fraud, WorldRemit has a huge team of trustworthy customer service attendants that overlook all money transfers.

We also partner closely with our correspondents to make sure such cases are avoided.

What are WorldRemit’s Future plans?

We hope to continue expanding geographically and launch new mobile money services in different countries as well as open up partnerships with more telecom operators.

We recently opened up in United States and are seeing the body quickly grow.

Comment on international Mobile Money interoperability?

The GSM Association – an association of mobile operators noted that international remittances are the mobile money industry’s fastest growing service.

Until recently, it was impossible to send remittances internationally to Mobile Money wallets.

International remittances via Mobile Money are growing both in Africa and globally. There are now over 260 Mobile Money services worldwide with over 100 million active users.

The Mobile Money interoperability initiatives that exist between telecoms operators remain intra-country or intra-continent, as most lack the underlying infrastructure for money transfers internationally across continents.

WorldRemit acts as a hub to connect these disparate systems and enable seamless money transfers from abroad directly into Mobile Money wallets at a fraction of the cost of the traditional money transfer industry.

Any other information you would like to share?

Uganda recently achieved a number four ranking for the country’s overall digital and financial Inclusion efforts in the 2015 Brookings Financial and Digital Inclusion Project (FDIP) report and scorecard. We want to make sending to Mobile Money as easy as possible for Ugandans abroad.

Alix Murphy is a leading Mobile Money specialist.

She helps build and support commercial relationships with telecoms operators all over the world.

Before WorldRemit, Alix was at the GSMA where she analysed trends in Mobile Money and digital identity, and consulted mobile operators on revenue opportunities.

She has on-the-ground expertise of the telecoms sector in regions as diverse as sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, North America, East Asia and South East Asia.
