Uhuru

Uhuru is not a story; it is a right. An opportunity. A chance for hundred of thousands of voiceless people in Tanzania to be given a platform. With it they can do what they choose – reveal, explain, beg, complain, correct. For years the disabled population of Tanzania has been treated with a stigmatisation that has ostracised them from the rest of the country. This is something which is embedded within the culture. Refused the right to an education, hidden by family, overlooked by government care and legislation, threatened with physical harm and murder, but most of all denied the freedom to instigate change. Mara district has the highest percentage of people with disability in the country; the figure of 13.2% far exceeds the national average. Here, a group of people with a variety of impairments discuss the conditions that they experience daily.
