Sylvia Nanyunja, 25 years, Christian and waitress at 10Tables in Masaka, will vote for Kizza Besigye in the Ugandan presidential election. She voted for President Museveni five years ago. Masaka, Uganda. 17/02/2011
Sylvia Nanyunja, 25 years, Christian and waitress at 10Tables in Masaka, will vote for Kizza Besigye in the Ugandan presidential election. She voted for President Museveni five years ago, saying;
”I voted for Museveni, because I feared the war”.
That time she was afraid of chaos and violence after the election.
This time around she will be ”Voting for change” in Uganda.
She thinks Bezigye will do good for the country. ”According to what he is saying on the radio, I think he can make a change”.
”Bezigye is the one who is going to bring free education in Primary and Secondary school. Now he is saying that he is gonna bring free education on University level as well.”.
”There are some people who are very rich, and some people who are very poor, and some of these poor people are very smart, but do not have the money for school, so they will never have the chance to go to the university, and then they will not get a good job”.
Sylvia is hoping for a better position as manager for the restaurant she is working in. She has an Accountant degree from school but because of the unemployment rate in Uganda, it is very difficult to find a job in that line of work.
The reason is as she says that; ”Most of the industry that were started, are sold now”.
She wants change and a new president is the answer.
Sylvia fears that riots will break out during the election period, so 10Tables Restaurant will be closed on election day.
