Racism is very dangerous in our East African region

BY CHRISTOPHER AHIMBISIBWE

On Wednesday 21, Uganda joined the rest of the world to commemorate the International Peace Day. Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September.

The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

On Wednesday, a section of youth from Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and the Democratic republic of Congo joined together in Entebbe-Kampala to celebrate the day under their organization “Great Lakes youth network” for dialogue and peace.

The theme of this year’s commemoration was “End racism. Build peace”.

The mayor of Entebbe Fabris Mulinda who officiated the function of peace walk which started at Imperial botanic hotel Entebbe thanked the organizers of Great lakes youth network for bringing altogether youth from the four countries that make East African Community to celebrate and look forward on how they can build the culture of peace among themselves even to their country of origin.
