City businessman Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia has put his weight behind Capt Mike Mukula for the post of NRM Vice Chairman for Eastern region.
Mukula who has held the position for years, is up against former MP Tororo municipality Hon Sanjay Tanna.
Dr. Ruparelia says he is ready to support Mukula to continue with the party leadership at both regional and national level.
”Yes its true, I unconditionally support Hon Mike Mukula,” he is quoted as saying.
According to reports, some of Tanna’s mobilisers have already jumped ship.
During the meeting with national NRM leaders at Hotel Africana, the mobilisers led by a one Komakech pledged to rally behind Mukula.
Only Emmy Mitala, the Deputy RDC for Mayuge district, is still pushing the Tanna agenda.
