Ashraf Kato aka Ashburg and Ray Supasta, the two People Power bloggers who recently crossed to National Resistance Movement (NRM) have officially become Registered members of the ruling party.
The two were handed Party membership cards by the Hajji Moses Kigongo the Vice Chairperson of NRM on Friday at Maya country resort in Wakiso district.
While handing them the cards, Kigongo asked the bloggers to respect all people regardless of their political affiliation so as to attract more supporters to NRM which has become their new home.
“Everybody is important because all of us have one vote each and the politics is about numbers.”
He has applauded Balaam Barugahare for convincing these youthful Ugandans to join the ruling party
“We are happy that our friends have joined us after seeing the light. The good thing is that they are not alone but have a following.”
In mid-May the two People Power diehards surprised the nation when they declared that they had joined NRM.
This message was posted on their official social media platforms accompanied with their photo posing with President Yoweri Museveni.
