Ugandan Peace Clubs promote violence-free elections
I spent a wonderful day yesterday in Kasese meeting with some personal heroes of mine—about 18 Ugandans who are working diligently to ensure that there is no violence during Friday’s elections. These citizens have come together to organize peace clubs in their western Ugandan communities (Kasese, Rukungiri, Kabale, and Fort Portal). These clubs have been reaching out to citizens (through radio messages and visits to churches, mosques, and schools) urging them to maintain the peace. I was very impressed with their activities, and encouraged that their worthwhile efforts will bear fruit. (For photo album of the Kasese Peace Summit, click here).
