Welcome note from the Editor in Chief
Elections are big in the course of any nation because this is the only time that the citizenry gets an opportunity to determine the leadership.
For this reason Vision Group is launching this website that is dedicated to the coverage of the 2016 national elections. We are offering another versatile avenue where people can get information.
The website will enable Ugandans to get information on what is happening in different parts of the country in real time because we shall use the extensive network of our correspondents in different parts of Uganda to get the information.
We shall also highlight the issues that affect Ugandans and give the people a platform to express their views, as well as allowing the political aspirants to respond to the concerns of the people and to show the people how they will deal with the concerns once they are elected.
This website will be a one-stop centre for all election-related information. It will complement our other platforms such as the television, radios and newspapers by breaking news in real time.
With this website, we seek to serve our audiences better. Given that 80% of Uganda’s population is below 35 years of age and this group uses more digital gadgets than any other group, we want to serve them with a digital platform so that they are able to get the information on their cell phones, laptops and iPads. This segment of our population will be a major block as far as deciding Uganda’s future is concerned so it is important that we avail them the necessary information to make a rational choice.
We shall maintain our values of giving accurate information, being fair and balanced. We are training our teams to do exactly that.
This will be a wholesome website that facilitates interaction with our audiences through the social media platforms such as Facebook and twitter.
We intend to cover all the key political players in a balanced way. Therefore, it is important that they inform us in good time as they go out to engage with the people as the media can only reflect what is on the ground.
We have done a poll to ascertain the issues of concern to the Ugandans and we shall seek out the candidates to respond to them. In a way, we shall have a people’s manifesto set before the candidates.
Fortunately, the website has no limitations of space. While we may not find enough space to cover everyone in the papers, TV or radio, we shall have the space to cover all worthwhile election information on this site, although the candidates will have to demonstrate that they mean business and deserve the space.
I welcome you all to this edifying media experience.
