Miria Matembe for chairperson AU

This petition had 15 supporters

Miria Matembe is a lawyer by profession, a politician, a human rights activist and speaks for many who suffer in Uganda.

Matembe has spent her life fighting for women rights, children rights and freedom for people who have no voice.

She has also served in many roles including Pan Africa.

Matembe is incorruptible and she only demands for the best for Uganda.  She does not ask politely, she demands and she is always justified. 

Matembe  has written, taught and published and all her work is about human justice.

In October 2006, Matembe gave a lecture entitled "Women, War, Peace: Politics in Peacebuilding" at the University of San Diego's Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Distinguished Lecture Series.

In 2011, she delivered the keynote address at The 11th Sarah Ntiro Lecture and Award held at Grand Imperial Hotel, Kampala -Uganda to those women who are either inspiring models or have worked to facilitate girl-child education at the Forum for African Women Educationalists (Fawe) organised-event and, for the disadvantaged girl-child.  The main awards came in two categories; the "Woman of Distinction" award that recognised women whose activities promoted girl child education, and the Model of Excellence award that awarded women achievers who set a good example for young girls.

Matembe who was one of those honoured for her valiant efforts to promote girl child education gave thanks to God when accepting the award.  She said ignorance and lack of resources were some of the issues hampering the advancement of girl child education.

If Ugandans really want some one in the AU (African Union), you would make a big mistake not to support Matembe.

Certainly, being that she is opposition and money buys things.  However all of us who believe in the good in Uganda could contribute and have Matembe head the AU.

Remember that she will be at the AU fighting for every African and will not mince any words.
