ABOUT UGANDA DISAPORA P10 GROUP
We are a group of pro-change Ugandans living in the Diaspora – Europe, North America, Asia, Australia, and parts of Africa. We Ugandans in alliance with friends of Uganda are united with the purpose of causing a legitimate and peaceful change of governance in Uganda. As Ugandans in the Diaspora, we embrace diversity and acknowledge that we contribute substantively to the Ugandan economy, and to the development of human resources, as well as enhancing the quality of life of many Ugandans.
Our financial contributions to the economy should have guaranteed us a special status representation in the Parliament of Uganda, voting from our foreign missions abroad, and participating in other organs of the state. Nonetheless, we have remained largely marginalized in that regard. We have therefore decided to become part of the force for change in Uganda and view the 2016 General Elections as a realistic opportunity that offers hope for change in the current political climate.
The P10 Diaspora is the civil response to the call by the FDC Presidential Flag Bearer, Col (Rtd) Dr Kizza Besigye for grass-root mobilization structure to canvass support, and protect the votes meant for Dr. Besigye on polling day. Its purpose is to generate awareness about how people can effectively exercise “peoples’ power” to cause the desired change, and to eliminate the attendant fears associated with the NRM violence during elections.
