Members of the National Resistance Movement-NRM Party platform in Rwenzori region have kicked out their chairperson, Patrick Kamulindwa.

The platform brings together NRM Youth supporters under Rwenzori region.

Members accuse Patrick Kamulindwa of mismanaging funds worth 10 million Shillings, personalizing the affairs of the group and illegally expelling thee leaders of the group.

It is alleged that Kamulindwa has failed to account for the money, which was given to the group by President Yoweri Museveni when he launched the group in Fort Portal in February this year.

Richard Businge, the group secretary says they made several attempts to get accountability from Kamulindwa on how the money was spent in vain. 

Last month, Kamulindwa expelled three leaders of the group for meeting former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi. 

They are Hidden Basiima, the Kabarole district youth councilor and vice chairperson of the group, Stella Kemigabo, also the district female youth councilor and treasurer of the group and Olivia Mutamba, female youth councilor Ntoroko district and chairperson of the group representing Ntoroko district.

Kamulindwa accused the leaders of holding secret meetings with agents of Mbabazi in Fort Portal.

He argued that the actions of the leaders were against the objectives of the group, which include soliciting votes for President Museveni in the 2016 elections.

In February, the group unanimously endorsed President Museveni as the sole presidential candidate for the ruling National Resistance Movement party in 2016.

The group comprises 1,500 members from the seven districts in the region.

The platform has given Kamulindwa 14 days to appear before the group and account for the funds and handover the documents belonging to the group.

Kamulindwa denied the allegations against him in a telephone interview with URN. On expelling the three leaders, Kamulindwa said he gave the trio an opportunity to appear before the party disciplinary committee to defend themselves but they declined.
