Uganda is not ending tomorrow, Museveni tells feuding politicians

Museveni and Moses Kahima

At all the four campaign rallies the NRM National Party Chairman and Head of State, Gen. (Rtd) Yoweri Kaguta Museveni addressed in Ruhaama Constituency this Tuesday, he reminded the residents here to value their votes by casting them in favour of the NRM flag bearer for continued development.

The National Chairman preached to the party followers the numerous gains a Constituency registers when they vote a candidate who relates well with the government and is able to lobby for services.

He said a vote should be considered as a tool for winning services into the area and not a weapon to fight unnecessary battles or creating friendship.

He also warned Ugandans against staging fights for political positions as if ‘Uganda is ending tomorrow’.

At all venues, the National Chairman officially introduced Moses Kahima Mugabe to the voters saying that he will be able to work with the sitting government without any hindrances if elected to Parliament on Thursday.

Mr. Museveni applauded the previous leaders in Ruhaama particularly the First Lady and now Education and Sports Minister Hon Janet Museveni for steering the constituency leadership well which enabled its dwellers to benefit from different government programs.

On matters outside electoral politics, the President further advised the residents to stop fragmenting their land but instead use it jointly for commercial farming.

He also urged them to continue fighting poverty by engaging into productive activities like modern poultry, animal rearing and onion growing among many others.

The President addressed four rallies in Nkakyera Sub County, Rwoho Town Council, Ruhaama and Ntungamo Sub Counties.

Speaking at the same rallies, the Deputy Secretary General Hon Richard Todwong pledged before the National Chairman that the Party was committed to protect the votes and earn NRM its first election victory in this New Year.

On his part, the NRM candidate Moses Kahima hailed the National Chairman for sparing time to come and drum up support for him.

“I am greatly honoured by your presence Mr. President and I pledge to serve Ruhaama and the NRM party whole heatedly”, said a visibly excited flag bearer.

Ruhaama goes to polls on Thursday January 11 to elect their new Member of Parliament.
