Nakaseke Resident District Commissioner Fred Bamwine has tasked the Nakaseke Central Member of Parliament Allan Mayanja Ssebunnya to call off parallel NRM Day celebrations.

The national event will be held at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds in Kampala, under the theme: “Celebrating the 36th NRM victory day, a call to duty for all compatriots to continue towards Uganda’s Social Economic Transformation Journey.

Last week, Ssebunnya a member of the National Unity Platform-NUP party circulated leaflets indicating that he will organize an event to pray for the souls of all those who died during the NRA bush war from 1981-to 1986. Ssebunnya also said that during the event, victims of last year’s election violence will be remembered.

But Bamwine says that the event will not be sanctioned when there is an ongoing national event.

According to Bamwine, although districts can organize the NRM celebrations, based on the guidelines, any related events can only be allowed when the national event has ended.

//Cue in: "Nga.

Cue out: ...aga national function."//

Bamwine also says that the organizers of the event have not sought permission from the police.

//Cue in: "Bw’oba nga olina...

Cue out: ...mu bumenyi bw’amateeka."//

According to Bamwine, since the prayers will be held at a national monument, Ssebunnya should first seek permission from the Director of the National Archives.

//Cue in: "Gw’abadde gutegekeddwa…

Cue out: ...abantu tubasaba temugendayo."//

Ssebunnya says that he will go ahead with the event. He adds that he wrote to the Police informing them about the event.
