Lumumba calls for unity among party members

Friday, February 10, 2017

The Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has called upon party members in Kalungu district to put aside their differences and work together for the good of the party.


Hon Lumumba made the call today during Kalungu district NRM Liberation day celebrations held in Kyamuliba Town Council, Kalungu District. 


"If you are faced with issues in your clan, that doesn't mean that you should go to another clan and get a heir to lead you," Lumumba said.


The Secretary General’s remarks come as a result of the loss of the district Parliamentary seat to the opposition due to differences among party members. She urged the people to reconcile all issues created as a result of last year's party primaries.


On the forth coming LC1 elections, Lumumba urged the party flag-bearers to utilize party structures in their respective villages to coverse for votes.


"Do away with the mentality of waiting for people in Kampala to come and kick start campaigns for you. Use the 30 party members per village to campaign," she said.


She called on the people to utilize the coming rainy season to plant more trees that will help avert the effects of global warming.


"Let this prolonged dry season be a learning point for us to stop cutting down trees and instead plant more trees," she urged.


On education, Lumumba called on parents to use the available educational facilities to educate their children.


"NRM is the first and only government in Africa where a child can go through school from primary level to university using state funds," she said.
