Furthermore, the last general elections held in early 2016 stood out for the high numbers of elected leaders entering office for the first time.

Moreover, perpetrating these acts against school going children/minors is even most disgraceful. As part of our #WomeninMediaUg meeting sessions, we held a roundtable discussion with selected members of academia, media and civil society in Uganda.
