“The enumerators who have been assigned responsibilities are executing their assignments without any problem. The remaining 20,000 enumerators are the ones reporting “machine failures’” and most of them were hired behind the official electronic recruitment system by respective Local Governments.” Remarked Dr. Chris Mukiza ED UBOS

That the management has guided the District Census Officers and District Census Commissioner Representatives to fasten assigning roles and responsibilities to the affected enumerators to enable them perform their enumeration duties effectively.

“Uganda Bureau of Statistics management would, therefore, wish to assure the public that enumeration devices and the Census application are operating well and the enumeration exercise is expected to be smooth going forward until 19th May 2024.” he added

In majority of Districts, enumeration started smoothly with 94,099 Enumerators and Supervisors having been assigned roles and responsibilities on the enumeration system.

However in some districts there was some issues which were later rectified and the exercise resumed smoothly.
