We are very delighted as the Ugandan LGBTI community to introduce Moses Kimbugwe our own brother in the struggle and activist for over 7years. Moses currently the programs Director at Spectrum Uganda Initiatives Inc. has expressed his intention in engaging in the politics of Uganda come 2016 with the country general election for Kawempe South Division Member of Parliament. We highly believe in him and his intention is a strategic, objective and functional aim to drive our cause and directly to the rest of the policy makers and we believe this is the right time for the Ugandan LGBTI community to make a direct appearance in the planning for the future of Ugandans.
“I want to use this campaign as a platform to reachout to Ugandans on issues affecting key populations as this is the only space available because of the narrowing space but with this the electoral commission will protect me to air out my views and our views” says Moses.
We therefore stand with Moses and call upon the entire world to support this cause throughout the campaigns and we take this victory home, more details will be communicated after the electoral commission has issued guidelines from the ongoing electoral reform discussion.
