Wako, http://chanceandhydrick.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-terms-list-table.php who pledged to attract more youth to NRM, was received by Museveni during a meeting with a delegation of over 200 National Resistance Movement (NRM) mobilizers from the districts of Busoga Sub-Region who called on him at State House, Entebbe.

The defection comes in less than a month when the FDC Jinja district Woman MP contestant (2011), Maureen Kaalya, switched to NRM.

A week ago, it also emerged that FDC special presidential envoy, Anne Mugisha, had communicated to Museveni of her intentions to abandon opposition activism.

Political analysts say such defections weaken the opposition but FDC leader Col. Kizza Besigye on Thursday said NRM was buying off his supporters.

“It is the policy of Museveni’s government to disorganize opposition by buying off, blackmailing and intimidating opposition leaders,” said Besigye during a political talk show, Hot Seat, on Kfm radio station.

Besigye further admitted it was hard building structures in opposition when NRM is dangling fatty envelopes in the eyes of his men.

However, Chimpreports.com is yet to get evidence that Wako was bought off by NRM.

FDC sources said Wako was a “good mobiliser” who gave NRM a run for their money in Iganga during the 2011 presidential elections.

Meanwhile, during the meeting, Museveni urged the leaders in Busoga Sub-Region to assist wananchi in the area towards enhancing household incomes.

“Other issues get better and easily sorted out once the primary issue of household income is addressed,” the President said.

The delegation also included Members of Parliament from the Sub-Region. The Sub-Region comprises the districts of Jinja, Iganga, Namutumba, Kaliro, Kamuli, Mayuge, Bugiri, Buyende, Luuka and Namayingo

The President noted that Jinja, the second largest City in Uganda, and is based in Busoga Sub-Region, has attracted a lot of people that engaged in a diversity employment opportunities and business.

He said this had created a big market for every product produced in the Busoga sub region. He, therefore, appealed to the people of the sub-region to appreciate and respect purchasers of their products as well as the numerous entrepreneurs found in the area because, he stressed, they are crucial to the operations of the local as well as the national economy.

Museveni told the delegation that the Movement Government has conscientiously put a lot of effort in the promotion of services through the provision of quality education so that as many Ugandans as possible can strive to get educated so that they are empowered to fit into the dynamics of the present modern world.

He added that the development of the other infrastructure is among the vital components that the Government is already addressing.

He called on the people of Busoga in particular and of Uganda at large to ensure social discipline in order to encourage the enhancement of individuals and families that value and appreciate the ideals of self sustenance.

The President asked cadres in Busoga Sub-Region to launch a Savings and Credit Co-operative Organization (SACCO) to which he pledged with the necessary seed funds.
