Bruno K therefore, believes that if musicians come out and raise a unanimous voice, those in power will definitely listen. He also added that he is going to be using his Twitter page to advocate for the health sector.
“Dear Ugandan Musicians, this is the time we need to stand with the people. Let’s not stay silent. If we speak up, the people at the top will definitely listen. I’m going to be using my handle to push #UgandaHealthExhibition. Dm if you have any information you want me to share. For God and my country,” said the singer.
A social media movement was recently launched by Makerere University philosophy teacher, cartoonist and columnist Dr. Jim Spire Ssentongo.
This has been aimed at calling out different government agencies about poor service delivery. It’s, therefore, fair to say that this is working out quite well.
It started as the Uganda pothole exhibition and this pointed to the dire condition of Kampala roads.
This pulled headlines both locally and globally. It even pulled the attention of President Museveni who also directed the concerned agencies to work on these roads.
Further, works are already in progress and attention has now been shifted to the Ministry of Health.
Currently, regime propagandists are embroiled in social media wars against Ugandans who are expressing their discontent with the state of the health sector.
This movement has definitely shown that social media is a great tool in effecting service delivery. The struggle might not be taken to the streets where citizens might die from. However, it can be done from one’s phone in the comfort of their homes.
