CSO’s Accuse Government Of Selective Blockage

CSO’s Accuse Government

Civil society organizations-CSO’s dealing in Human rights and governance issues have accused the government of shrinking their space for operations and operating outside the confines of the law.

The CSO’s argue that the government has been so critical of NGOs doing governance work like constitutionalism and human rights and has blocked deliberately blocked their operations.

Last year, the government banned the activities of NEW-U, an election observers’ loose coalition of more than 50 NGOs for allegedly operating illegally.

The bank accounts of the National NGO Forum, a membership organization with over 650 organizations, and Uganda Women’s Network (UWONET), an entity that brings together 20 Women’s Rights Organizations and nine individual activists were also frozen for allegedly engaging in money laundering and funding subversive activities.

The Executive Director of Center for Constitutional Sarah Bireete says they have held several meetings with the authorities but the government continues to shrink the civic space.

CSO’s Accuse Government

Bireete says the government is comfortable with Civil Society Organizations that focus on service delivery like poverty alleviation programs and extending safe water to the communities but are hostile to CSOs focused on accountability, governance, and democracy. 

Bireete says that the government needs to act under the law when dealing with the activities of CSOs.

She was speaking at the launch of a book titled, Uganda’s Civil Society.

However, Minister for Internal Affairs Jeje Odongo who attended the same launch says that the level of suspicion between civil society organizations and the NGO Board is high which has led to the closure of some offices of CSOs, interdiction of CSO leaders and freezing of bank accounts. ]

Odongo admits that there is friction between the government and civil society, but said that the government is committed to improving its working relationship with CSOs.

He also said that there is a need to appreciate the role of the CSOs in the country.

He committed to holding periodic meetings with members of the Civil Society to discuss their work.

NTV News anchor Faridah Nakazibwe unveiled as Chipper cash brand influencer

Nearly three years ago, a US-based Ugandan Ham Serunjogi and a Ghanaian colleague Maijid Moujaled launched a cross-border money transfer platform called Chipper Cash.

To the creators of the platform, the purpose was to ease cross-border money transfers, especially doing away with costs incurred in making transfers – basically sending and receiving money from foreign countries at zero cost.

The duo wanted to create a feasible solution to the blocks associated with exchanging money especially in Africa and the app has since been launched in Nigeria, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana, Kenya, South Africa as well as Uganda.

Yesterday, Wednesday, April 21, the largest mobile cross-border money transfer platform on the continent unveiled NTV News Anchor Faridah Nakazibwe as a brand influencer. “I’m honored to be working with Chipper Cash. I have worked with a number of brands and one thing known about me is that I’m a natural influencer and I’m happy to bring on board what I know to Chipper Cash,” Nakazibwe said during the unveiling.

Faridah Nakazibwe will be working alongside Spice Diana who has been their brand influencer for the past eight months.

Faridah Nakazibwe and Chipper Cash country manager Dan Tumuramye at the Unveiling Ceremony held on Wednesday at Chipper Cash Head Office

Dan Tumuramye, the Country Manager of Chipper Cash, says Nakazibwe fits the credentials of a brand influencer they needed. “We wanted to bring on a TV/Media personality on board. We feel Faridah is a right fit for our target market,” said Tumuramye.

It should be noted that a week ago Chipper Cash was launched in the United Kingdom. Since the launch, people in the UK can send money back to Uganda and get 15% instant cashback for the sender and 5% for the receiver. Each Ugandan who downloads the app and shares their referral link to a person in the UK (friend or family) gets UGX50,000 as a referral bonus when the UK person downloads the app, verifies their account, and sends £20 to any Chipper Cash user in Uganda.
