The party through its Chief Mobilizer and Head of Campaign for Acholi Sub Region Bosco Odoch Olak has been gathering hundreds of NRM party candidates, chairpersons, supporters and officials to witness the campaign strategy launch and solicit votes for incumbent President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and NRM candidates.
The village chairpersons say they were initially told that the bicycle distribution would be free of charge, but to their dismay, while receiving the bicycles on Sunday, each beneficiary was subjected to pay 10,000 Shillings as transport cost for delivery of the bicycles and those who didn’t have the money missed out.
The latest defections include Tonny Olanya Olenge, the NUP`s Acholi Sub Regional Coordinator and head of the mobilization, Kennedy Otim the NUP Coordinator for Gulu City, Robinson Rachkara the NUP`s party Administrator for the Northern Region and contestant for Laroo-Pece Division.

Robson Bob Orech, the Community Development Officer at Ibuje Sub county who said the flood was first experienced in the area in 1964explained that so many people are suffering as a result of the floods.
