Census 2024: UBOS Dispatches Entire Top Executive To Oversee Village Mapping Process

In order to salvage some of the lost time, the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) has dispatched members of its top executive and the board to supervise the ongoing mapping of the enumeration areas ahead of the upcoming national census.

Enumeration areas consist of 50-80 households, about the size of a single LC1 village.

The process entails among others, mapping these areas digitally and establishing the heads of the households.

But with just over two months to the census, this exercise has fallen behind schedule with only a few districts having completed it fully. 

In order to speed up the process, the top directors at UBOS have been sent out, each to their respective regions of origin to oversee the activities as follows:

Godfrey Nabongo, the UBOS Deputy Executive Director will take charge of the Karamoja and Bukedi sub-regions.

James Muwonge, the Director of Methodology and Statistical Coordination has been sent to handle the Buganda subregion which is split into Buganda North and Buganda South.

Edbert Oyesiga, the Director of Internal Audit has been placed in charge of Ankole and Kigezi subregions.

Florence Abeja Obiro, the Finance Director has been dispatched to the Teso sub-region, while Pamela Kansiime, the Director of Legal Service and Secretary to the board is in charge of West Nile.

In Bunyoro sub-region, Vitus Mulindwa Kato the Director of Corporate Services is in charge, whereas Victor Ogwal, the head of procurement has been sent to Lango.

Mrs Aliziki Kaudha Lubega, the Director of Economic Statistics on the other hand has been dispatched to supervise Busoga and Elgon.

Uganda is set to conduct the national census with the reference night being May 9, 2024.

The Census will be done in 10 days starting on 9th May 2024 to 19th May 2024.

After every 10 years, Uganda holds a national census and the last one was carried out in 2014.

The census figures play a critical role in guiding planning, policy formulation, and programme implementation as well as monitoring development progress in line with the national goals and objectives.

Meanwhile, the UBOS board of directors has also been sent out to undertake higher-level oversight activities which will entail networking and resolving emerging issues as shown below:

Rogers Matte – Acholi and Lango Subregions.

Rosette Nakavuma – Karamoja, Teso and Elgon

Opolot Jacob – West Nile
