LUMUMBA PREPARES FOR M7 RAID ON JINJA TRAIL
By Our Reporters
In his capacity as NRM Chairman, President Museveni is expected in Jinja on 13th March to campaign for the NRM candidate Nathan Igeme Nabeta. This was disclosed by NRM SG Kasule Lumumba who raided the constituency today Friday in the company of some Busoga NRM MPs who have vowed to rally others to camp in Jinja and effectively gang up on the FDC candidate Paul Mwiru. Lumumba’s strategy has been going to the landing sites where the otherwise hard-to-reach voters live. Moving along with Igeme, who has been apologizing to voters over unfulfilled pledges, Lumumba has urged voters to forgive the candidate for past mistakes and unite behind him in the spirit of the NRM party. More details of Lumumba’s tours are contained in a news release NRM Publicist Rogers Mulindwa just sent to us a short while ago.
In a strategy that will leave no stone unturned, NRM Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has this Friday conducted several mini rallies at village levels aimed at gunning support for Nathan Igeme Nabetha, the official party flag bearer in Jinja East by-elections.
The exercise that started from Nile Crescent LCI, Old Boma parish has seen the Secretary General moving as far as Ripon and Dorwe landing sites among several other places. Clad in a black long skirt and a yellow party blouse , Lumumba reached out to many voters including boda boss cyclists, carpenters and fishermen some of whom she interracted with from their canoes.
At all meetings the SG delivered messages of reconciliation and team work from the National chairperson and President H.E Gen. Yoweri Museveni. She also urged residents to vote the NRM candidate for continued prosperity. She offered herself to pair up with Igeme in ensuring that the pending government pledges are realised.
Her presence left so many party members excited and hailed her for a motherly approach to issues. Lumumba urged the Local leaders at the landing sites to mobilise their people into forming working groups in order to access government assistance easily.
The Secretary General moved with the candidate at all venues. She was also in company of MPs Moses Walyomu (Kagoma) and Taaka Agnes Wejuli the woman representative from Bugiri district.
On his side Igeme took time to apologise to his voters for any wrongs he could have committed if any. He also urged them to turn up in big numbers to receive the President when he comes on March 13 to conclude the campaigns.
