COMMONWEALTH deputy Secretary general Florence Mugasha has said there is need for good governance and democracy if commonwealth countries are to achieve their Millennium Development Goals, (MFGs) reports Cyprian Musoke.

Giving a keynote address at the opening of the first African Commonwealth Local Government Forum at Speke resort Munyonyo yesterday, Mugasha said, “The link between democracy and development is important, particularly in African countries that are still lagging behind on their MDGs. Democracy must play its role in the eradication of poverty, since it must be seen to deliver.”

She said Africans in commonwealth countries were still surviving on less than a dollar per day. Delegates praised Uganda’s position on all fronts except full-fledged democracy.
