KAMPALA - The National Electoral Commission (NEC) has kicked off a campaign of sensitizing the Rwandan Diaspora on the forthcoming presidential polls slated for August, 2010.

The exercise that kicked off recently in Kampala, Uganda saw the commission’s Executive of Secretary, Charles Munyaneza briefing the Rwandans residing in Uganda on the August polls.

Commission has also visited Tanzania, Burundi, Kenya and other countries to connect with the Rwandan Diaspora community.

Speaking to The New Times, Munyaneza said that the sensitization campaign will help to solve some problems that the Diaspora faces during elections.

“We have decided to come to Uganda with the aim of educating all who are to engage in election to avoid inconveniences which might occur.”

During the three day visit, the duo met with Rwandan students and other Rwandans residing and working in Uganda.

The first councilor at Rwandan High Commission in Kampala, Daniel Mutezintale called on the community to come forward and register at the embassy to avoid last minute rush.
