Nice adopts new approach


National Initiative for Civic Education (Nice) Public Trust has engaged an extra gear in efforts aimed at wooing voters by embarking on door-to-door campaigns,

Mwanza District Nice Civic Education Officer, Kumbukani Kalulu, said this at a training workshop for volunteers, traditional leaders and faith leaders in Sub-Traditional Authority Govati in the district.

“Three hundred and sixty degrees means raising awareness to each and every person who is eligible to register and vote in the 2019 tripartite elections regardless of their political affiliation, tribe and status,” Kalulu said.


He said Nice was prepared to reach out to people who would be aged 18 years by November 9 this year.

Kalulu said doing so would help stakeholders solve the problem of voter apathy.

Centre for Human Rights Education, Advice and Assistance Project Coordinator, Boxten Kudziwe, cited lack of knowledge on the role of elected leaders as one of the factors that fuel voter apathy in the country.


“Again, according to our interaction with the villagers, the situation has been exacerbated by misunderstandings that have arisen, in regard to their role, between lawmakers and councillors,” Kudziwe said.

The voter registration exercise in Mwanza comes in the fourth phase of the electoral calendar, which means it will run from August 16 to 29.
