Uganda Elections: Bobi Wine “A Serious Matter” Video

A large majority of the Ugandan population is under 30. To reach these voters, the National Democratic Institute partnered with popular local musician Bobi Wine to release a video encouraging youth to avoid election violence, and to encourage them to report any election irregularities to UgandaWatch2011. With the election day upon us tomorrow, I think it is worth returning to this video that was released last July.

The chorus of the song, in English, is:

So if it is voting, let’s go and vote but votes should not separate us,

Let’s stop feuding ‘cause of those contesting,

Votes should not separate us.

As we’re feuding, they’re in agreement.

Votes should not separate us.

Voting comes to an end but we still stay

Votes should not separate us

Let’s all hope for a peaceful election day tomorrow. For up-to-the-moment Twitter updates, go to #UgandaVotes.
