Although both Salaamu and Kadaga have each kept on pledging to increase developmental projects in Kamuli district without publicly demeaning each other, supporters of both camps have engaged themselves in endless physical and verbal attacks.
Fort Portal City Mayor, Rev Willy Kintu Muhanga adds that due to lack of guidelines; he has not yet formed an executive committee that would implement council resolutions. According to Muhanga, the operationalisation of Fort Portal city led to the immediate closure of Fort Portal municipal bank accounts.
Samuel Odong, the NRM National Youth League Publicity Secretary says there are powerful politicians who are campaigning against Kadaga’s bid for the CEC position by bribing delegates to boycott the forthcoming elections.
Kadaga observed that the national taskforce is currently concentrating its’ food aid campaigns in the areas of Kampala and Wakiso, while sidelining other equally starving communities throughout the country.
Speaking at the commissioning of construction works along two roads in Jinja town, Kadaga says that, she receives numerous reports of intrigue and corruption by both technocrats and local leaders from Jinja district, which frustrates the progress of infrastructure projects.
It has attracted thousands of NRM supporters from all walks of life. Students, farmers, politicians, and members of the business community started converging at the venue as early as 7 a.m. As celebrations went on inside the ground, hundreds remained stuck in slow-moving lines, to go through the mandatory security checks.
Clement Ogalo Obote, the Chairperson of the Rules, Discipline and Privileges Committee, says he doesn’t know what happened there after. According to Ogalo, their work stops once their report and goes to the house.
Manyiraho also noted that in their efforts to get services like health care in government hospitals, they are always made to queue with the youth, which is he said is very unfair since most of them are already too weak to stand.
For instance, he said that most of them can no longer acquire loans from banks because every time they attempt, loans officers tell them that they are too old and are likely to die before clearing baying back the money.
Akuze filed the case through his lawyers; Mangeni and Company Advocates at the Jinja High Court, demanding for a payment of 200 million Shillings for the service that allegedly propelled Kadaga through leadership.
