Building Structures and Commitment to Transformation.

The fourth day of the post-election review workshops held by the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) took place on the 9th of April 2021. Various members of ANT participated in the workshop, which was held at the Forester Gardens in Mbale.


The members in attendance represented the areas of Bugisu, Sebei, and Bukedi which are part of Mbale subregion. So far, post-election review workshops have been held in Kampala and Iganga subregions.


Participants included the one elected councilor and over 40 candidates that represented the ANT flag on various positions as well as the coordinators. Majority of the challenges shared mirrored those of other different districts indicating a trend of electoral malpractices.


As part of the introductory proceedings Hon. Alaso recognised the passing of two candidates that ANT lost in the region. The late Mr John Chelangat won the seat in Sebei and Mrs. Kitis who died before the voting date and still lost 2 votes to the incumbent. She also extended apologies for the intra-party challenges that were faced in the administration of the election. She shared the best practices in Busoga and Serere as she encouraged members to reflect on their own actions and experiences and share them in the plenary.


The presidential Candidate, Mugisha Muntu used the opportunity to commend all candidates and coordinators of the party that withstood the storm and are still holding on strong to light the ANT bulb in their communities. While engaging on shared experiences, he reiterated his commitment to the struggle for a transformative society in Uganda.


Being cognizant of the shared responsibility for all party members, the message that the struggle for liberation is indeed tough walk resonated with participants at the workshop. While such a walk is not for the faint hearted, members responded with a commitment to the transformation of public service and good governance in the country.


ANT’s commitment in building structures situates the party as the ideal incoming transformative government in the country. Mugisha Muntu appealed to members to continue to be proactive in the mobilization of resources. He also said that “The task ahead is that of changing mentalities of Musevenism, fear, and resignation amongst the populace. Here, the party’s role is to liberate our people.”


Also present at the workshop were Mr. John Mary Odoi (CCEDU), Chairman Basakana Hannington, the chairperson Emeritus of Jinja District Local Government, Amb. Edith Grace Sempala, Mr. Bala David Bwiruka, the Education Institutions coordinator and Grace Atuhaire, Diaspora Coordinator.


The meeting ended at 5:00pm and the leadership continued the journey to Soroti for the Teso subregion meeting scheduled on 10th April 2021.
