Gen Muntu's A.N.T Mobiliser Joins Ruling NRM Party

“We still have challenges like unemployment, poverty and corruption but we have always given a very good account of ourselves on addressing the challenges. It is the reason we are seeking another mandate of the people to be able to tackle the challenges,” Mukula said while receiving Ms Namagembe

Maj Gen (rtd) Mugisha Muntu’s Alliance for National Transformation has registered its first defection after their mobilizer for Wakiso District joined the ruling National Resistance Movement party.

Pauline Margaret Namagembe was the 2016 Forum for Democratic Change flag-bearer for Wakiso Woman MP and lost in the polls to Rosemary Sseninde. She later quit FDC to join Gen Muntu's youngest political party. She however seems to have now found her desired party, the NRM.

Namagembe was on Monday part of the group of over 50 opposition supporters from Wakiso, Karamoja, Teso, and Bundibugyo unveiled at the NRM headquarters in Kyadondo.

“I was in FDC before joining ANT. I am finally home in the NRM to deliver service to my people. I was looking for a platform to deliver service and here I am,” Namagembe said.

She was received by Capt Mike Mukula, the NRM vice chairperson for the Eastern region.

Capt Mike Mukula said such defections symbolize that the ruling party is still strong and can attract bigwigs from opposition parties.

“We still have challenges like unemployment, poverty and corruption but we have always given a very good account of ourselves on addressing the challenges. It is the reason we are seeking another mandate of the people to be able to tackle the challenges,” Mukula said.

Emphasizing that the NRM is still strong, Mukula said many other bigwigs from the opposition are on their way to joining the NRM.

“We are draining the entire political swamp of the opposition all over the country to join the NRM. Our political power increases each day that passes. We will continue to be strong and many other people will join us.”

Mukula explained that since Gen Mugisha Muntu quit the Forum for Democratic Change, many of their supporters are now seated on the fence wondering where to go.

“Many people have left FDC and is it is going down. Many of those who left the party have not yet decided where to go. We shall target them to join us in the NRM,” Mukula said.
