• The Uganda We Want, is an apolitical 'coalition of the willing" Ugandan citizens who have come together to build on their wide variety of experiences to share ideas on how we can create a "Uganda that we all want"

• We are a king of 5th Estate, the voice of reason- who recognize the fact that much as we all rely on government to deliver on our expectations, every citizen has the responsibility of contributing towards the realization of whatever plans that government may have for us a country.

• Most importantly, we believe that for Uganda to go where we want it to be, there will have to be a major shift in our value systems, mindsets and ideological orientations; which is why we started these Summits.

• These summits are a sort of a reality check on government by its citizens to cross-check how far we have come and give genuine, apolitical feedback.

• This was largely born out of a concern that everyday there are growing blurred lines between especially the executive and the legislature and sometimes the Judiciary and this compromises on the ability of each institution to act as external auditors to each other.

• According to the Separation of Powers' doctrine, the principal institutions of state—executive, legislature and judiciary—should be clearly divided in order to safeguard citizens' liberties and guard against tyranny.

'When the legislative and executive powers are united in the same person, or in the same body of magistrates, there can be no liberty... there is no liberty if the powers of judging is not separated from the legislative and executive... there would be an end to everything, if the same man or the same body... were to exercise those three powers' (Benwell etel 2004: 192).

• We believe such civil society forces like ours, will put pressure on government to ensure that we create Social Justice- equal access to economic, political and social rights and opportunities for all. We do believe that as out population grows, our responsibility to one another becomes even greater. We all live here in Uganda and we need to look out for one another.

• Finally I wish to call upon government to listen to us and take our concerns seriously; because in the worlds of Bill Gates, "We all need people who will give us feedback. That's how we improve."

"Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things."
Allaah gives the best to those who leave the choice to Him."And if Allah touches you with harm, none can remove it but He, and if He touches you with good, then He is Able to do all things." (6:17)
