Benson Mugtenyi said, “The vision for the event is threefold. First of all to create an opportunity for members to recognise and become aware of the Group (SOG) and provide a setting where we can get to know Black Members.

“Secondly to create an opportunity for members to volunteer for a working Group to campaign against anti-racism.

“And last but by no means least, to remind everyone – Black and White – that racism in every formis a vice that is tearing the fabric of our society and should be fought with every fibre of our strength. It should never be tolerated.”

There will be questions and answer during the event.

Benson added, “Please don’t miss it whether you are Black or White. This is an opportunity to be reminded, learn and contribute to the fight against ant-racism.”
