This presidential and parliamentary campaign cycle has already been dubbed Uganda's first social media election.

Many people, young and old, have taken to Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp to give their opinions on the campaigns and the candidates running for office. Various hashtags have been trending, but the most significant are #Ugandadecides and #UGDebate16.

Daniel Mumbere, an avid social media user and presenter of the TV show Hashtag, has been very happy with the way Ugandans are engaging with politicians on social media.

"I would have loved to see where we actually preempt [the politicians],? Mumbere said. ?We'd say: 'Let's talk about hospitals today' and then they respond. But it's been the other way around. But I think, ultimately, it's been a good start."

So good, in fact, that one candidate ? Amama Mbabzi ? even announced his presidential bid on Youtube.
