Gatabazi Davis, a Rwandan with experience in pharmacy and leadership programs, seeks to become a Member of Parliament Representing youth in the East Africa Legislative Assembly as campaigns for EALA seats take the momentum in regional countries.
Mr. Gatabazi, 30 years old, prioritizes bringing on board the youth in the political integration process of the East African Community and to speak for the youth in terms of access to finance.
Political analysts in the region have continued to show that the youth of East Africa show weakness in expressing their opinions in the political arena while at the same time the problem of lack of access to finance have continued to affect the well-being of the youth in general.
Mr. Gatabazi says that one of his concerns is that the regional youth have a voice in the political arena and to advocate for them in terms of getting capital and funding for their business projects, all of which support their well-being as well as creating an informed generation either in politics, business and financial sector.
Mr. Gatabazi said “My manifesto is mainly about Youth Participation in Political Integration, mostly Decision making Process, Youth Access to Finance, Youth Participation in Social Wellbeing and mobilizing for the Accountable Leadership.”
Besides Hard Work, he always believes that Putting People First and Accountability are added ingredients to his leadership philosophy.”
