The western #world has come to an end, the end of the #modern society: (1) no #science without scientists jobs, (2) no #DemocracyDay without democrats, (3) no progeny without females and families (4) no right decisions possible without any truth. #RealNews provides real reality.
Thank you for participating in the #DemocracyDay debates & celebration. Let’s keep the conversation going on our social media platforms.

"Even when the institutions are performing well, there is always room for improvement. There is always something that can be done better, that is why we need such talk." - H.E Attilio Pacifici, European Union Ambassador to Uganda.
"Someone asked me why we're organising a debate on democracy. He said is it because we have no democracy in the country? I said no, there is no democracy in the world mature enough not to discuss its quality." - @ProfNawangwe
“Implementation of policies in Uganda is worrying therefore solutions to tackle this should be discussed” Ronald Mbarara University Guild Speaker.
"There is a tendency among exposed (and educated) women in Uganda to believe that what we have is what everyone has, which is wrong. It is important that we understand that 10% equality is no equality at all. We need 50-50!" - Lydia Namubiru, Journalist.
