NGOs, under the Citizens Coalition for Electoral Democracy in Uganda (CCEDU), have launched a short messaging service (SMS) platform to receive complaints regarding the ongoing elections.
Godwin Byaruhanga, an official from CCEDU, says the campaign will involve appealing to the public to vote candidates basing on their ability to address social issues and not those who give them freebies.
The move is intended to promote transparency in the electoral process ahead of next year's general elections. The service will enable members of the public to send SMS any network and the messages will then be used to alert the Police and electoral officials about people's concerns.
