NRM to emphasise focus on Cadres in Asia

By Henry Mulindwa & Ruth Kasembo

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Secretariat has highlighted the need for the ruling party to prioritize party supporters living in the Asian world.
According to the NRM Deputy National Treasurer Kenneth Omona, the party has concentrated more on NRM cadres in the West and has previously not given the Asian world its due attention yet there are ‘thousands’ of NRM cadres in that region.
He added that registering NRM cadres in the Diaspora will give both the party and the country good planning statistics.
Omona made the remarks during a special meeting with NRM Diaspora league members led by their chairman Hajji Abey Kigozi Walusimbi.

The meeting took place at the NRM headquarters on Kyadondo Road and was attended by among others chapter leaders from USA, UK, Canada, Thailand and Turkey.
Walusimbi told The Second Opinion that the leaders discussed several issues including the NRM road map, NRM Diaspora registration, upcoming Diaspora retreat, the Secretary General’s visit to different chapters in the Diaspora and the Diaspora Industrial Park which was promised by the President.
Hellen Namutamba, Presidential Special Assistant on Poverty Alleviation, encouraged Diaspora members to focus more on developmental ideas.
Omona hailed the members for supporting NRM Party and also commended the President for the inauguration of a new national airline.

“The Ugandan Diaspora wil be crucial as far as Uganda Airline is concerned as it is a big travelling group of people.
This further underscores the registration of cadres in the Diaspora as it could be an additional tool in identifying airline routes of interests permanent or seasonal,” Omona said.
