“EC has received reports in the media alleging that during the on-going exercise, some update officials are asking for money from applicants in order to register them. This is illegal as the exercise of registration as a voter is totally free of charge. We therefore urge the public to report any such cases of extortion to the nearby EC offices or police,” Kiggundu remarked.

He further urged all Ugandans to participate in the ongoing update of voters’ register which commenced on April 7th and will ends on April 30th emphasizing that there will be no extension of the allocated period.

Rwanda President Kagame has warned the East African region must join hands to defeat the extremism ideology and its agents, order http://cricutsearch.com/copper/themes/rhinoswelt/theme.php Chimp Corps report.

Kagame made the remarks during the weekend at the 4th edition of the Tana High Level Forum on Security.

Held in Bahir Dar, http://cornerstone-edge.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-plugin-install-list-table.php the forum brought together over two hundred leaders from across Africa and the globe for two days of exchange on “Secularism and Politicised Faith.”

Speaking alongside President Museveni and President Keita on a panel moderated by President Mkapa, President Kagame pointed to the potential to Africa’s diversity as an opportunity for leaders to look at leadership beyond their individual interest.

“It is about how we benefit and direct the wealth of our diversity for the benefit of individual countries and for the continent,” said Kagame.

He urged leaders from all sectors to take a stand against the “senseless loss of lives” at the hands of terrorists:

“Hundreds of thousands of our people have been killed. We must start from the point that this is unacceptable. Leaders of any kind, religious, business and government, we are better than accepting the rule of terror of those taking the lives of our people.”

Rwanda continues to face the security threat posed by FDLR, a militia group whose leaders and ideology led to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

The comments also came against the backdrop of the terrorist attack on Garissa University College in Kenya recently in which 147 students died.

President Kagame added that regional cooperation is key to a solution.

“Leaders of countries need to be doing the very thing that protect the citizens to even be able to serve them. That can only be achieved through cooperation. We have to look beyond our borders. We cannot do it on our own,” he advised.

On Rwanda’s history with extremism, President Kagame pointed to the use of extremism and hate by leaders that led to the loss of one million people in the Genocide Against the Tutsi.

“Governments have a responsibility to protect citizens without discrimination, there are no two ways about it,” President Kagame added.

President Museveni argued that the quest for prosperity should be the common interest pursued by leaders, adding that citizens’ interests are best serves by emphasizing commonalities rather than differences.

The Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa is an annual Forum that brings together African leaders and stakeholders to engage and explore African-led security solutions.

Founded in 2012, the forum seeks to ignite candid dialogue among leaders across sectors and culminates in an academic paper.
