Uganda: NRM Secretariate Concludes Mobilization Drive in Wakiso

Members of the NRM secretariate have concluded its mobilization drive in Wakiso district which was aimed at strengthening grassroots support.

Speaking during the last meeting with party leaders from Entebbe Municipality held at Botanical Gardens, the NRM director for communication, Emmanuel Dombo said it is high time leaders focused on service delivery other than politicking.

“When elections are done let all us come down to work for the people. I urge all elected leaders all over the country irrespective of our political affiliations to work for the people.The president has advised us to mobilise our people with interest. Let us not mobilise people who are poor. I therefore urge you leaders to advise our people to embrace government programmes. This is the only way our people will lift themselves out of poverty,” Dombo said.

He asked civil servants to ensure service delivery to the people as their role to ensure implementation of the NRM manifesto.

Dombo also called for unity of the NRM leaders as one of the ways that will ensure the ruling party reclaims its lost glory in Buganda.

“The NRM has to get back to the top in Buganda region but this will only happen when we are united as a party and we work as a team. NRM will only grow if we recruit new members from different parties but also retain our old members.”

He also noted that the NRM CEC will meet to get guidelines from the national party chairman on how to handle the issue of elections for the party league wing since those holding the offices are above the youthful age.
