People’s Congress-UPC party has revived the Mulungushi Club through, which it
seeks to recruit youths into its ranks. Mulungushi Club was started by former presidents, Apolo Milton Obote of Uganda, Kenneth Kaunda of
Zambia and Julius Kambarage Nyerere of Tanzania in 1969 to push their pan African
Sharon Oyat Arachi, the UPC party spokesperson, says they
have devised new strategies of mobilising and recruit youths into the party
through Mulungushi Club because
they hold the future for the party. She says one of the strategies is to increase
youth participation in all party activities with guidance from the old guards.
//Cue in: ‘’This Mulungushi club….
Cue out…by grassroots mobilization.”//
She says that Mulungushi Club that was re-launched at Makerere University has already
helped bring new members and well-wishers who come to buy membership
cards to support the party activities. Arachi says this will help them improve
their participation and present a presidential candidate in the 2026 polls.

Cue out…UPC has done.”//
Similarly, in 2011 UPC created training and awareness programs for youth in
Northern, Central, Western and Eastern Uganda to engage them in serious
grassroots mobilization and sensitization of their local community through the
District party structures about the party policies.
