The NRM National Treasurer Rose Namayanja Nsereko believes there is no political party in the country that can beat the ruling party when it comes to political mobilization.
The treasurer’s remarks were based on, among others, the execution capacity demonstrated by the NRM District Executive Committee (DEC) members who commenced door-to-door campaigns in their villages this past week.
“Based on the results from the field, the door-to-door strategy is very supportive and I doubt if there is any party that has the same organizational capacity as the NRM,” she said.
“That is why to us, rallies are not the only ways of campaigning and it’s not by accident that we choose the village-based mobilization strategy.”
Namayanja was Sunday speaking to journalists at the NRM headquarters in Kampala to offer an update on the campaign trail.
"Today marks the 27th day of the campaigns and the NRM is proud to announce that we have covered the whole Northern and Eastern regions of Uganda. The President is set to start the next phase of the trail in Western Uganda,” she revealed.
So far, the president has commissioned a number of markets in Soroti, Busia, Tororo and in Lugazi.
These markets are meant to provide direct employment to the people in the surroundings, she said.
During the address, Namayanja called on medical practitioners in the country to reach out to more masses and also educate people about what they should do after they test positive for Covid-19.
“Many people who test positive don’t know what to do after. I call out to the Ministry of Health to elaborate more what should be done when people test positive since not everyone can now access medical services," she said, adding:
"It’s a pity that some of our top management tested positive for COVID-19 including the secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba."
Namayanja also sent condolences to the Muslim fraternity, as well as the family of Sheikh Nuhu Muzata who died on Friday last week.
"This country has lost a very influential person and he will surely be missed by many,” she said.
