Media Analyst, Robie Kakonge, and Uganda Law Society (ULS) President Ruth Sebatindira have called for peace as Uganda votes a new president.
Kakonge says the first step was when Ugandans came out to listen to the candidates and actually saw the candidates’ personalities during Saturday’s presidential debate.
She said media has been the biggest bridge between the public and the candidates.
“This season is about issues but many key issues were not tackled by candidates. Candidates lacked a way forward.”
Appearing on NBS TV Wednesday, Sebatindira too called for peace saying it includes avoiding inflammatory remarks.
“We should all engage peacefully.”
She said the electoral commission’s restrictions on use of mobile phones at polling station is understandable.
“Beyond the booth, voters should be able to use phones.”
She said even judges were even told to admit electronic evidence.
