Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has urged citizens to make themselves available for the country’s census in May and to be truthful when asked the census questions.


President Museveni took to social media to explain that consistent data provided by the public will help the government process the most accurate information about citizens, their household, institutions and community, to accurately plan the delivery of public services.


Uganda is set to hold the census between 10 and 19 May, the sixth census in the country’s history, budgeted to cost 134bn Ugandan shillings and will be done digitally.


The exercise was postponed from the initially scheduled date in August last year due to financial challenges, amid international funding cuts linked to Uganda’s controversial anti-homosexuality law.
