Weapons of Mass Destruction video Released

“This is so relatable,” exclaimed a Ugandan Youth

Woooow! That is exactly what is happening in the community here (neighbouring East African Country). The message in the play is very clear that the people can understand easily,” wrote an East African Researcher.

“The video expressed the real situations in our communities (neighbouring East African Country), good and bad advice from friends; ignorance; the healthcare services and financial issues,” wrote another East African Researcher.

These are some of the comments from those who have viewed the “Weapons of Mass Destruction” 10-minute video drama; a production of CPAR Uganda Ltd.

CPAR Uganda Ltd is forever indebted to the following persons who made the production of the “Weapons of Mass Destruction” video drama possible and within the available limited financial resources:

  • Story Concept: Norah Owaraga, CPAR Uganda Ltd Managing Director.
  • Script Writer and the Director: Mr. Philip Luswata, a teacher of drama at Makerere University Kampala; and who is a globally renowned top Uganda comedian, who, for example, features in top East African television drama series “Mukutano Junction” and “Centre 4”.
  • Production and Post-Production: The Watu Wa Africa (wwa) team, a company of Ugandan youth, who filmed and edited the video.
  • Actors: Ugandan youth, emerging actors, who are being mentored by Mr. Luswata.

CPAR Uganda Ltd, with confidence, releases its “Weapons of Mass Destruction” video drama; a drama that is based on true stories as told by respondents of an empirical qualitative study that CPAR Uganda Ltd conducted in Uganda from 2016 to 2017.

The intention of the “Weapons of Mass Destruction” video drama is four-fold:

  • Awareness creation
