The 4th Annual General Meeting of the Food Rights Alliance was held on Friday 25th August 2017. This was the 2nd elective assembly since the establishment of FRA as an independent secretariat in 2014. This colourful event saw the alliance constitutionally transition its leadership following 3 years of service.
Opening the ceremony, Mr. John Segujja the outgoing BOD Chairperson commended the Alliance on the numerous achievements it had realised in the last 3 years under his leadership. He gave members a synopsis view of what transpired during the year since July 2016 and highlights from in and around the Alliance since the appointment of the Board of Directors (BOD) on 28th August 2014.
During the event, two new members of the Alliance were presented to the assembly. These were: Welthungerhilfe and Katakwi Conserve Uganda.
In an animated handover ceremony, the members of the outgoing Board of Directors were appreciated for their committed service to the Alliance with certificates of recognition from the FRA Secretariat.
Through an open and transparent election that was overseen by Mr. Magelah Peter a consultant with Chapter Four Uganda, FRA saw into office its new
Board of Directors that committed to provide the Secretariat and the Alliance as a whole good governorship through the next three years.
The newly elected governing body is comprised of: Mr. James Kaija (FOTU) the BOD Chairperson, Ms. Jane Nalunga (SEATINI) the BOD Vice Chairperson, Mr. Henry Richard Kimera the Treasurer, Mr. Stephen Akonyu (WoWNI), Mr. Crespo Mubalya (VEDCO), Ms. Evelyn Chelangat (CAFHUR), Mr. Kabanda David (CEHURD), Mr. Maumbe Fred Mike (FORINET -EU) and Mr. Aggrey Nshekanabo (Send a Cow Uganda).
We would like to offer the elected our most sincere congratulations upon their assumption of their new responsibilities as the Board of Directors. We at the Secretariat pledge our continued support and look forward to a strong, dynamic comradeship in promoting the Right to Food in Uganda.
