President Yoweri Museveni and his National Resistance Movement party top officials are expected to converge at Speke Resort Hotel Munyonyo today Monday November 2, immediately after the nominations to launch the 2021/2026 manifesto.
NRM Secretary General, Kasule Lumumba told journalists at the party headquarters at Plot 10 Kyadondo that the event will kick off at midday.
“After being nominated, our Presidential flag bearer will launch the Party’s 2021-2026 Manifesto at Speke Resort Hotel Munyonyo starting 12 noon,” said Lumumba.
The Secretary General, however, noted in form of apology that the number of party faithful to attend the event has been limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Let me apologize to the thousands and millions of our members, who have planned to be with us, that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, only a few selected members have been invited to attend,” said Lumumba.
The only big wigs to attend the manifesto launch include the Central Executive Members; Ministers, the Manifesto Committee and the Secretariat top management among others.
During the launch, the Secretary General is expected to highlight the party’s achievements for the last 5years, the unaccomplished works and the future programs.
Lumumba also on Sunday commissioned the NRM Party’s Call Centre with two toll free lines – 0800 337 337 and 0800 277 007. The lines are for Ugandans with burning issues requiring immediate attention by government agencies, security and local government authorities.
Lumumba urged the public to put these toll free lines to proper use and appealed to the staff deployed to attend to the callers with maximum respect.
Lumumba was accompanied by the National Treasurer, Rose Namayanja; Deputy SG, Richard Todwong; Deputy National Treasurer, Jacquiline Kyatuhaire; Director of Mobilization, Mathias Kasamba and Communications Director Emmanuel Dombo.
