NRM Achievements

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) welcomes all Ugandans to the achievements so far registered since 2006 when Ugandans gave full mandate to NRM to lead the country.  Sincere thanks go to all those who put trust in NRM as the best and most competent organization to govern the country. The trust Ugandans put in NRM was a result of its re-known track record of performance in the transformation of the country. NRM inherited, in 1986, a country in ruins.   With a devastated economy, the country was collecting Shs. 5 billion only in revenue which has catapulted a thousand times to Shs. 5 trillion. With this increased revenue collection as a result of the growth and development of the economy, as well as peace and security, the country is now able to implement critical and desirable programmes. These include Universal Primary Education (UPE), Universal Secondary Education (USE), National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADS), improvement in health services, rehabilitation and construction of roads, revitalising the power sector, etc.  NRM is the only political organization in the country today with such a track record of having brought about a fundamental change in the country. Read More...

Efficient and Effective Service Delivery

Efficient and Effective Service Delivery

In the last five years, the NRM has invested a lot in public service delivery in the country. Considerable resources have been provided by the NRM Government for the improvement of infrastructure and social services such as roads, water and sanitation, health, education and agriculture.

However, efficient service delivery still remains a challenge due to poor work ethics and corruption. This is manifested in the stealing of drugs in health centers, health worker absenteeism, teacher absenteeism, shoddy road and other civil works construction and maintenance, etc.

 

Rehabilitation of War Conflict Ravaged Areas

Rehabilitation of War Conflict Ravaged Areas

As pledged in the NRM Manifesto 2006, the NRM Government embarked on the implementation of plans for the recovery and rehabilitation of war and conflict ravaged areas, as well as dealing with the issue of disarmament in Karamoja.

These efforts are a reflection of the commitment of the NRM to the consolidation of good governance in the country, as outlined below.

 

Military and Security Forces

Military and Security Forces

Uganda is now a totally peaceful country, with security assured for all citizens. The peace and security we are enjoying, is irreversible. NRM pledged, in the 2006 election Manifesto, the complete annihilation of all terrorist groups from the country, as part of the continuing effort to ensure good governance in the country.

This has been achieved with the complete expulsion of the LRA terrorists from Uganda and their total  emasculation as a military threat. 

 

The Fight against Corruption

The Fight against Corruption

NRM has vigorously implemented its policy of zero tolerance to corruption since 1986. It has successfully eliminated the more overt forms of corruption and criminality; i.e. air supply, extortion on road blocks etc. Today the most common forms of corruption  manifest themselves covertly.

 

Empowering Special Interest Groups

Empowering Special Interest Groups

a) Gender and Women

Over the last decade, the NRM Government has adopted and commenced the vigorous implementation of a national gender policy, outlining strategies and interventions for the empowerment of women. This has involved strengthening the legal framework, initiating legislation on domestic relations, sexual offences, and employment.

This has been in clear recognition of the fact that gender equality and equity are core values of NRM, as well as being key determinants of sustainable economic growth and development.

 

Patriotism and the Promotion of National Interest and Common Good

Patriotism and the Promotion of National Interest and Common Good

The 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda makes provisions for National Objectives and Directive Principles of State Policy, among which there are political, social, economic, cultural and foreign policy objectives. It is these objectives and directive principles that the state of Uganda and any government in power ought to uphold in order for Uganda to exist as a sovereign country with in a family of independent states.
