FULL STATEMENT: Dr Khanakwa Sarah narrates why she’s come up to vie for Namisindwa Woman MP seat

Dr Khanakwa Sarah Bwayo, a humble Ugandan woman passionate about poverty eradication, and a born of Buwasunguyi, Bupoto, Namisindwa District, is among the favourites for the district’s Woman MP position.

She revealed below in verbatim the reasons as to why she has decided to run for Namisindwa District Woman MP seat.

I state this with confidence – that, based on the record of achievements I have made locally and nationally, I want to use this experience and platform of partnerships I have developed the world over, not only to serve my people but to make Namisindwa a demonstration ground to Uganda and the World-over – that community engagement/participation crafted by passionate, technical, incorruptible and strategic leadership will make development a reality in our society!

Critical to note – Politics and technical capabilities are synonymous. We need passionate technical children of Namisindwa to come out and lead our development agenda as a district! As a young district, we can longer gamble on the leadership we entrust to move us forward! We need tested leaders with grounding knowledge in development work at community, national and international level.

Only then will we have leaders who can relate with and formulate policies that are responsive to the needs of a community whose development is still at its lowest? A technical, experienced leader can align district priorities with the national and international development agenda during policy formulation/development! We have no shortcut friends, this is a global village! The leaders we need should appreciate the global development agenda, which feeds into the National, district and community strategies for sustainable development.

Friends we must pay attention to the kind of leaders we need in Namisindwa if we have to deal with our obvious development challenges! It’s time for Namisindwa people to change our mindset and accept that we need technical, experienced leaders who are not only passionate about the economic, social and environmentally sustainable development of their district, but have also built a network of development partners nationally and internationally to ride on.

Identifying and having leaders with an already established network or able to develop strategic partnerships (social capital) is critical for us as a young district.

We may not achieve much alone but with a network of friends nationally and internationally, Namisindwa district will soon be centre of excellence providing lessons on the real-time development approaches
