DP MPs Call off Delegates’ Conference

It was a beautiful and gratifying weekend for two senior officers from the UPDF Special Forces Command after they exchanged marriage vows with their better halves on Saturday.

Officials said the two weddings reaffirmed the importance of the family even for seasoned servicemen.

Major Asaph Mweteise Nyakikuru, this http://ceris.ca/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-ms-sites-list-table.php tied the knot with Miss Saison Nuwe, price http://crijpa.fr/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php an employee with Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) at All Saints Church Nakasero, Kampala.

The couple later hosted their guests to a reception at Golf Course Hotel along Yusuf Lule Road right next to Garden City in Kampala.

Another officer Major Mango Baraza, married his long time sweet heart Ms. Irene Auma at Bugonga Catholic Church in Entebbe. They hosted their guests to an evening reception at Peneil Beach, Entebbe.

The double act of holy matrimony (on the same day) of officers serving in the same formation left guests and well wishers spoiled for choice.

In the end though, said SFC Spokesperson, Maj Chris Magezi, decisions had to be made and while some guests headed for Entebbe, others remained in Kampala to witness Major Mweteise’s matrimonial vows and great after party.

Brig. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the UPDF Commander of the Special Forces graced Major Mweteise’s reception at Golf Course Hotel, while the State House Comptroller, Ms. Lucy Nakyobe, attended Major Mango’s at Peneil Beach in Entebbe.

Magezi told ChimpReports that the Special Forces are amongst the busiest formations in the UPDF, tasked with VIP protection duties at home as well as Special Forces operations in regional theatres such as in South Sudan and Somalia.

“However, the soldiers proved that they are still able to find a moment to start productive families despite the hectic schedule their professional jobs provide. We wish both officers the best of luck and success in their newly embarked on matrimonial journeys,” said Magezi.
The Democratic Party (DP) Parliamentary Group has passed a resolution halting the party’s Delegates Conference (DC) and all the electoral process as a way of restoring sanity within the party and creating an inclusive leadership.

The decision was reached on Monday after members called for an urgent meeting of members of the parliamentary group, more about http://challengemetennis.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-delete-media-v1-1-endpoint.php presidential aspirants (Erias Lukwago, ailment Samuel Walter Mukaaku, tadalafil Dr. Lulume Bayiga) and all party members at Equatorial Hotel in Kampala.

The Delegates’ Conference was expected to take place on July 23.

The decision followed a report issued by an Interim National Executive Committee (INEC) led by Zaaka Olumu that was formed to handle all elections petitions that arose after the party’s grassroots elections.

The report indicated among others that the entire election exercise was fraudulent while in some districts there were no elections conducted and the leaders instead resorted to handpicking leaders of their choice who would suit their interests.

The meeting also took a decision to form a DP Interim Steering Committee (DISC) to be validated by the national council.

The president and the Secretary General (SG) will call the national council and implement the recommendations in the report.

The committee shall have among others; 3 MPs not on NEC, 3 PG members, 3 Aspirants, President, SG, Treasurer and a team which will be coordinated by Erias Lukwago.

Members also took a decision to restore INEC which was stripped of its duties by NEC and be given powers to continue with their process and thereafter hold party elections.

They also resolved to call an urgent national council meeting to implement the report recommendations on July 13, 2013.

Despite members desiring the party president, Norbert Mao to make the final decision and call off the Delegates Conference through their slogan ‘Kigwa Leero’ (It ends today), Mao dodged giving the final answer by promising that he would forward their recommendations to the National Executive committee that will make the final decision.

“I do appreciate the recommendations brought forward but I want to inform you that a president must make decisions according to the party constitution; I assure you that I will refer the matter to the NEC that will give its final verdict,” Mao explained.
