President Museveni who doubles as the National Chairman of the National Resistance Movement will today campaign for the NRM flagbearer, Derrick Orone, in Gogonyo County.
The President is scheduled to hold two scientific rallies in Obutet and Kaukura sub-counties where he will address party leaders.
He is also expected to give guidance on key issues concerning the district as well as the district party structures.
He will also galvanize support from the people of Gogonyo for Orone, who seeks to reclaim his parliamentary seat.
Museveni’s visit will mark the end of six days of vigorous campaigns that have been spearheaded by the NRM director for mobilization, Rosemary Sseninde, along with the director for Finance and administration, Medina Nahan, and Rogers Mulindwa, the senior manager for communications, among other party district leaders.
The Gogonyo by-election has also seen senior leaders come in to boost the campaign efforts of the flagbearer.
These include the 1st National Vice Chairman, Moses Kigongo, the Vice President, Jessica Alupo, the Prime Minister, Robinah Nabbanja, members of parliament, and opinion leaders, among others.
Sseninde said that NRM is going to win the Gogonyo by-election due to the groundwork and preparedness of the party. She noted that the reconciliation efforts spearheaded by the secretariat team have played a big role in uniting the support for the party flagbearer.
“The time we have been in Gogonyo as NRM leaders, we have managed to help our leaders reconcile and make them appreciate the fact that they must support their party,” Sseninde said.
The people of Gogonyo County will, on Thursday, August 11th, 2022, be lining up to choose their next Member of Parliament.
