Kenneth Ongalo-Obote ’94 has been elected to represent his people of Kalaki constituency in the parliament of Uganda for the next five years beginning in May when the term of the current parliament expires. “The constituency poses serious challenges to any representative, among which are the worst education standards in the whole country and the most basic of health services,” wrote Ongalo-Obote. “I also have no doubt that a majority of the women who voted, voted for me because I was the only one of the five candidates who identified their economic dependence—leading to conditions of near servitude—as a problem that will need to be addressed. Lofty ideals, and even though one cannot change centuries old practices in five years, nevertheless, I believe that a beginning can be made, especially putting emphasis on the education of the girl-child. You are all invited to the revolution.”
