For our Kampala readers as Elections 2011 approach...

Thought would share with you this e-mail I received...

Dear Comrades,

Please share with others....

We currently do not foresee any trouble during the election period. However, as the dates for elections draw near, we thought it would be useful to offer a few practical tips in the run up to elections from 18th February to 3rd March 2011 just in case there are any disruptions to our ability to work, as well as essential supplies, particularly around the elections period:

 1. Keep emergency supplies of water, candles and matchboxes at home.

2. Have a  2-week stock of non perishable food supplies for your family.

3. Ensure your mobile phone has enough credit and is fully charged at all times.

4. Ensure that your vehicle is topped up with fuel and serviced (maintain at least half a tank of fuel at all times).

5. Keep your ears to the ground. Listen to all news broadcasts updates and follow news updates on local and international TV stations.

6. Unless required, avoid unnecessary movement and keep indoors. When you must move, carry your staff ID.

7. Carry your ID at all times.

8. Save the contacts to your local Police Station.

9. Keep some money (cash) safely with you.

10.  Pack a few necessities in a bag (ready to pick and go) in case you have to move (clothes, torch, matchbox, water, toothbrush/paste, medicine, money, beddings etc).

11.   Lock up early for the night.


Note locations of election rallies & avoid if possible.
