Kudos to Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA)

By Ms. Norah Owaraga 

The patience and calm with which UNRA officials handled my case and the two other cases that I observed them handle, with respect of us, the citizens, however irate some citizens were; and UNRA’s recognition and consultation of our cultural institutions is everything that I expect from a civil servant. Kudos to UNRA! 

On Monday, 14th May 2018, I experienced and observed officers of the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) who were at work in Pallisa in Eastern Uganda, about 200km by road north-east from Kampala Capital City. The UNRA officers were in Pallisa handling compensation matters in relation to the up-grading and widening of the Pallisa-Kumi road. The contracted road constructors, Arabs apparently, are already in Pallisa and have reportedly begun to source local employees and service providers.

Providing Health Care Services For Northern Uganda

“Some of our members and their households used to fear to go for HIV and AIDS tests. Now we no longer fear to go and test for HIV and AIDS. We now know our HIV status and some of us who are positive are open about our status, other than keeping silent. Those of us who are HIV positive now go to the health centre to get ARV treatment for prolonging our lives. Stigma between those who test positive and those who test negative has reduced. Group members support one another in the group and at homes.  Increased appreciation of the fact that HIV and AIDS  do not kill immediately and one can live positively has enabled us to live positively by taking good care of ourselves, eating nutritive foods, visiting health centres for services and not to isolate ourselves, but to continue to actively engage in productive activities.  For those amongst our members who tested negative,  have changed their behaviour, such as not sharing sharp objects and not engaging in extra marital sexual relationships which increase the risk of  being exposed to getting HIV. They make every effort to stay negative.”

Re-Thinking Education in Uganda

Every time a new parliament swears in and it is time to vet their qualifications for presidential appointments – Government of Uganda (GoU) ministers, for example, consciousness of education qualifications is heightened. This is the case also leading up to or during election campaigns at all levels. However, a deeper analysis of what is considered education in Uganda often leaves one baffled - especially so when one reviews so-called development strategies and policies that are intended for the benefit of Ugandans.
