Tooro youth under their umbrella Amacumu ne Bitara have announced their defection to the opposition.
The youth say they have decided to support the opposition just 9 days before Ugandans go to the polls.
Government has already declared Thursday February 18, 2016 as a public holiday to allow citizens vote for new leaders.
Tooro youth say they haven’t been listened to by the NRM government as it should be.
They accused President Museveni of failing to fulfil his pledges he made to them.
The pledges include; the return of the kingdom properties and Shs500m for the fruit project which he agreed to fund when they met him at his country home in Rwakitura three years ago.
Tooro Youth minister, Hon James Mugenyi, when contacted said he too was overwhelmed by their [youth] demands.
The minister said he felt sorry for them as well.
Edward Kasaija, the chairman Amacumu ne bitara, said he was equally overwhelmed by the anger the youth expressed.
“Im equally aggrieved by the level of negligence towards the youth in Tooro by the NRM Government and especially in this period of elections,” Kasaija said.
He however called upon the youth to remain calm and cast their vote wisely come February 18.
