Nancy Kalembe Resumes Campaigns in Masaka

Nancy says that while she requires a range of between two to three million shillings to run her campaigns with her teams per day, the situation has forced her to re-strategize and substantially cut down her expenditures to fit into the modest budget she is operating on, to enable her to keep going.

Independent Presidential Candidate, Nancy Linda Kalembe resumed her campaigns, a week after they were halted due to lack of funds.

Kalembe suspended her campaigns on December 9 after she had missed three days of campaigns in the district of Masindi, Hoima, Kiryandongo, Kikuube, Kyankwanzi, Kyenjojo, Kagadi, Kakumiro and Bundibugyo in Bunyoro sub-region.

The candidate resumed her open presidential campaigns in the districts of the greater Masaka sub-region.

Nancy says that while she requires a range of between two to three million shillings to run her campaigns with her teams per day, the situation has forced her to re-strategize and substantially cut down her expenditures to fit into the modest budget she is operating on, to enable her to keep going.

Kalembe explains that she has fundraised from her friends and well-wishers both local and abroad who are inspired by her determination towards causing a political change in the country.  //Cue in; “when you are ….

Cue out;….leadership is.”// Luganda 

//Cue in; “ekintu kyokubeera….

Cue out; …nga owuga.”//

She has however castigated the government for its recent decision in which financial accounts of some Nongovernment Organization were frozen on allegations that could be funding subversive activities in the country.

Last week, the Financial Intelligence Authority-FIA ordered for freezing of accounts of Uganda Women’s Network-UWONET AND Uganda National NGO Forum for alleged terror financing.

Kalembe says they lost potential funders in the crackdown, arguing that these are deliberate schemes aimed at frustrating efforts of the opposition politicians that are pursuing political change in the country.

//Cue in; “basically any leader….

Cue out; ….do not give up.”//

Luganda 

//Cue in: “ffe abantu abamu…

Cue out; ….gyetulimu etiisa.”

Asked on how she will compensate for the lost time when she was not campaigning, Kalembe says she has not run out of options indicating she is considering reaching out to the people in areas she skipped through the various media platforms.

With her manifesto titled “leaving no one behind” in which she intends to empower all the 56 tribes on Uganda in all aspects of life, Kalembe says she represents an all-encompassing ideology that is gradually being embraced by Ugandans every time she gets an opportunity to speak out to the electorate.

Besides Nancy Linnda Kalembe, other independent presidential candidates; Willy Mayambala, Joseph Kabuleeta, and Fred Mwesigye have equally been hit by financial challenges hence failing to campaign in many parts of the country.
