KAMPALA: The President of the Republic of Uganda, also the National Chairman of the NRM, H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, will on Monday, July 25 boost the Soroti City East campaigns as he canvasses support for the NRM flag bearer, Hon Herbert Edmund Ariko.
This was announced by the NRM Vice Chairman for the Eastern Region, Capt. Mike Mukula, on Sunday while addressing the press at his country home in Soroti City.
“The Chairman of NRM will on July 25, which is the second last day for campaigning in Soroti City East, come in for his campaign rallies.” “He will be here to deliver and unpackage the manifesto not only for Soroti as a city but the country at large. We expect him to walk the voters through the expectations of the new leadership of our member of Parliament, Herbert Edmund Ariko,” Capt Mukula said.
According to the draft program, the National Chairman will address two scientific meetings, starting with one from Madera ward and ending with one at Moruapesur Primary School playground. Soroti City East has 13 wards with 84 cells and 62 polling stations.
Capt. Mukula noted that the party is more than prepared to mobilize the populace to cast their ballots because of the broad and steadfast base of support that it enjoys in the constituency.
He added that the main area of focus has been a socio-economic transformation, which will guarantee the success of the Parish Development Model (PDM).
“With this initiative, the government will handle the issue of unemployment and increase the income per household. A number of other packages will also be unveiled tomorrow,” he added.
The NRM ideology made a plea to the opposition, to accept the triumph of the NRM after the elections are done.
The Soroti East Constituency Parliamentary seat fell vacant following a court nullification of the election of former Member of Parliament Moses Attan and ordered the electoral commission to conduct a by-election for the Soroti City East seat.
