National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has refuted allegations that she intends to quit the party's top position to return to elective politics.
This is after a local tabloid ran a sensational headline that Lumumba requested to quit serving as NRM SG.
The request was reportedly presented to the Party chairperson, President Yoweri Museveni during the just concluded NRM caucus retreat at Kyankwanzi.
In a tweet response, Lumumba said she is not a "quitter."
"@RedPepperUG I am no quitter in life. I am a very resilient person and still serving as @NRMOnline Secretary General," she tweeted.
It is not the first time allegations have come out saying that NRM Secretariat top officials are plotting to quit their positions to return to elective politics that they relinquished in 2015 after the amendment of NRM Constitution.
Among those who have been reported to be returning to elective politics include Deputy Secretary General Richard Todwong and Deputy Treasurer Kenneth Omona.
