Our Uganda Friday: Voices of Uganda

by Hanna Schwing

The National Theater is hosting a photo exhibit by Andy Kristian Agaba, titled "Voices of Uganda". People from different areas of Uganda were asked to write signs in their local languages expressing their desires for a free and fair election and what they want in elected officials. They were then photographed in their everyday setting holding signs displaying such messages as, "We need leaders who will ensure equal distribution of resources irrespective of sex, tribe or religion."

"I adjure the youths/students to stay away from bad groups that might influence them into violence during the elections period."

Any Kampalans who want to get into the democratic spirit before the elections on 18th February should make time this weekend to stop by the National Theater between 11am and 7pm to view the exhibit. See more photos here.
