A total of 38 opposition youth leaders mainly from the FDC have this Thursday afternoon crossed to NRM citing ‘lack of political focus’ among their former leaders. The NRM National Treasurer Hon. Namayanja Rose Nsereko received the youthful delegation at the Party headquarters in Kampala and called upon them never to be ashamed of their decision. The group was led by their Chairperson Mugumya Lawrence at the FDC youth Chairperson of Kalangala District.
Namayanja told the youthful converts that she was one of the founders of the Uganda Young Democrats but after a while with them she realised the group lacked a clear political ideology and she quit. UYD is the youthful wing of the Democratic Party and four of the NRM converts from the FDC belonged to the UYD. Namayanja took them through her political journey from a village youth leader to the Treasurer General of the NRM. She told them that they were in the right place because NRM is inclusive and that they will be treated equally like others because the NRM is not discriminative.
