Ugandans shared thoughts on the question surrounding the possibility of the current EAC collapsing because of the same reason as the first one given the weak and non-independent institutions such as the EACJ, sectoral and ministerial councils and the secretariat. The Citizenry shared views on whether Uganda actually accords the EAC affairs the kind of importance they deserve. They also tried to understand whether Uganda regards her membership to the EAC as part of the key strategies to achieve her short term, medium and long term development objectives.
This community engagement provided a platform on which the Citizenry shared their views on whether the Political Parties really understood the concept of Decentralization, the policy and politics involved, how the districts can enhance their capacity to increase their local revenue and expand their resource pocket among other issues.
