UGANDA: Can we have a revolution to kick out Military Dictator Museveni

Last year and this year, we have seen a wave of African despots falling. Ugandans should not think it will be the same as in the other countries. When you look at those countries where despots have fallen, you will realise that the uprisings were lead by Associations of Professionals.

You will realise that every member of society stood up in solidarity. UGANDARead More

By Pearl Denise Agasha https://blogs.worldbank.org/youth-transforming-africa/revise-curriculum-save-uganda-youth The fact that digital is the new way of life is no longer rocket science for anyone living in this new era. We are swamped with new technologies which have contributed to the birth and growth of this era that is also known as the “Internet” economy. It’s absurd that some of the schools in the African continent have not yet fully embraced the digital economy.
