On the 6th of October 2022, the Equal Opportunities Commission launched the 9th Annual Report on the State of Equal Opportunities in Uganda for the financial year 2021/22 at the Office of the President Conference Hall, Kampala.
The occasion was graced by the Members and Chairperson of the Commission, as well as staff and dignitaries from other government agencies.
The guest of honor was the Hon. Betty Among, Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development, and she was highly pleased with the efforts of the Commission in fighting inequality in our country.
She lauded the report as highly relatable, given what we ourselves see in our daily lives, and said the report must be used as a springboard for change; starting with the implementation of the guidelines recommended in it.
The report was presented by the Principal Research Officer, Mr. Bashir Lukungu, who spearheaded its compilation by the Commission through multiple field visits, research and inquiries, analysis, extrapolation, and finally dissemination.
It was a generally successful and auspicious occasion.
