NRM Nominates Museveni As Presidential Flag Bearer for the 2021 General Elections

Published

Uganda’s ruling party NRM has nominated President Museveni as national chairman and 2021 presidential flag-bearer for the 2021 general elections.

Museveni was officially nominated on Tuesday by the party Electoral Commission chairman Tanga Odoi.

The president’s nomination was seconded by NRM National Youth League chairman, Gaddafi Nassur.

After the nomination, Museveni spoke saying the priority now should be about saving lives from the dangerous COVID-19.

“I am amazed at how some people mix up issues. Some people have been talking about business, money, jobs when the issue globally is life. We want to save life. This is the biggest challenge,” Museveni said.

President Museveni has repeatedly urged Ugandans to take the Covid-19 disease seriously. 

He advocated for strict adherence to the Standards of Operation (SOPs) agreed upon by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Ministry of Health (MoH) as crucial to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

These SOPs include washing hands frequently, maintaining a social distance of at least two metres while out in public and wearing a face mask at all times when interacting with other people outside one’s home.

NBS’ Anna Talia Oze Joins Rubaga North Lord Woman Councillor Political Race

NBS TV Uncut presenter and former co-host of Zahara Toto, Annet Nambooze alias Anna Talia Oze has joined politics.

Launching her bid for the Rubaga North Lord Woman councillor slot this week, Nambooze said she wants to tackle poverty and youth unemployment if elected as councillor in the forthcoming elections.

“The struggle to afford basic necessities by many of you was and is still my struggle. The fear to slip into poverty, the raging issue of youth unemployment are still my fears,”said Nambooze.

“I know what it means to be born and raised in this constituency in every sense including the challenges of my people. I grew up in a very modest home that struggled and depended on hard work to survive,” she added.

Nambooze said she decided to be independent because all of the people she would affiliate herself with have a niche.

“I want to be your voice and I hope, working with you, will help all of us bring the change,” she said.

NUP Finally Speaks Out on Latif Ssebagala’s Withdrawal from Lord Mayor Race

Published

By


The National Unity Platform (NUP) has finally come out to comment on the withdrawal of Al Hajj Latif Ssebagala from the Kampala Lord Mayoral race that he announced yesterday.

Ssebagala who had been endorsed for the seat said yesterday that he was stepping down to maintain unity in the country’s opposition.

He had been preferred as a better candidate ahead of famous singer Joseph Mayanja a.k.a Jose Chameleone.

While appearing on BBS TV’s ‘Maaso ku Gwanga’ political talk show, NUP spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi said the party respects Ssebagala’s decision and are still in talks to forge a way forward.

“We assed them both on ground and in the vetting process it came out that he was better than Chameleone. That is why we gave him the card because we were confident he would make it,” Ssenyonyi said.

“We are still in talks and by Wednesday, we shall update the nation on our next steps.”

Whether the party will consider Joseph Mayanja as their next option for the race or not remains to be seen as no other member has shown interest in the seat that is currently occupied by FDC’s Erias Lukwago.
