Women from Mbarara District under their umbrella organization named ‘Nyekundire- Tis My Choice Women’s Group’ have vowed to leave no stone unturned canvassing for votes in support of the NRM Presidential Candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

The women said they want to show the whole country that Mbarara District which is the center of Greater Ankole still overwhelmingly supports President Museveni by ensuring that he comes out winner with a very high percentage.

Over 100 women who represented many others of the group recently met the First Lady Janet Museveni at her home in Rwakitura to share the strategies they have laid down to ensure that President Museveni wins in the February elections.

One after the other the women from various spheres of work and religious sects hailed President Museveni saying that they owe him and the NRM Government for lifting them from backward cultural captivity and empowering them.

They said they value and want to guard the peace and stability ushered in by the NRM Government and have to work hard to return the NRM Government into power so as to consolidate the achievements and continue building a better Uganda for the future generations.

“We won’t keep silent and see Uganda go back to the days of turmoil. We have to counter the lies being told by the opposition, prostate http://coachesacrosscontinents.org/wp-admin/includes/file.php ” they added.

The Nyekundire women also recommended that all effort be made to encourage reconciliation between those who lost in the NRM primaries and the flag bearers.

While addressing them, no rx http://cortrium.com/wp-admin/includes/class-walker-category-checklist.php First Lady Janet Museveni reminded them of the founding principle of the Movement which was to unite Ugandans across all ethnic, sildenafil http://danmarknorge.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-get-taxonomy-endpoint.php religious and other divide.

She said that women, as mothers of the nation, have a big stake in the stability of the country because when a nation is shaken it is women and children who suffer most looking for refuge.

She also observed that some youth who don’t know the country’s history had been misled by the opposition, but are now defecting to NRM after realizing that the opposition candidates don’t have a clear vision and focus for the country and are rather bent on destroying what the NRM Government has built.

Mrs. Museveni commissioned the Nyekundire women to carry out door to door mobilization of the people to support President Museveni and the NRM flag bearers to ensure a landslide victory and that peace and stability prevails in the country.

“Uganda has become an island of peace where people from unstable neighbouring countries are running to for refuge. Let us all stand up and fight to guard this prevailing peace because this peace is not for the President or his family, or for leaders only, but it is for all Ugandans”, she said.

Joviah Saleh one of the founders of the Nyekundire women encouraged them as the foot soldiers saying the support for President Museveni is potentially among the communities but they need to be mobilized.

She urged the Nyekundire women to share with the communities the glaring achievements of the NRM.
