Money squabbles as Museveni starts campaigns in Luweero


Museveni arriving in Luweero

President Yoweri Museveni is today in Luweero district where he launches his inaugural campaigns for the 2016 general elections.

Museveni started by launching the ‪NRM campaigns call centre along Buganda road in Kampala.

The 207 call centre has a 9000 traffic hourly reception.

Speaking at the launch, Museveni reiterated NRM achievements promising to accomplish what he hasn’t yet done after 2016.

Luweero rallies 

Meanwhile, Luweero NRM leadership is unhappy with the party secretariat for providing insufficient funds to organise Museveni’s first rallies in the district.

President Museveni is slated to hold three rallies in Luweero to begin his re-election campaign for the presidency.

According to URN, Luweero NRM leaders say they had submitted a Shs420m budget to organise the three rallies.


On Saturday, Information and Communications Technology minister Nyombi Thembo delivered to the district leadership Shs60m.

Thembo said this was the amount approved by NRM Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba.

Luweero leaders say a very huge amount is missing to ensure successful rallies for the president today.


Why Luweero?

Luweero is the district where Museveni started his guerilla war between 1981 to 1986.

Museveni is expected to address rallies in Kapeeka, Ngoma and Semuto as he returns to the Luweero triangle.

On Wednesday, Museveni will be in Nakasongola District, another NRM clamp.

After rallies in Luweero, Nakaseke and Nakasongola districts, Museveni is expected to move to Lango sub-region on Thursday, starting with Amolatar District.
