Caf Signs $1bn Marketing Deal with Sportfive

Kampala NRM youth have vowed to do whatever it takes to make sure that they uproot opposition from their stronghold positions in Kampala Capital City given the fact that the ruling party has never successfully triumphed in the country’s capital.

Juliet Nanono, information pills the Secretary General of NRM Cadres 2014 told ChimpReports in an exclusive interview that the association was formed on November 14, 2014 with the major aim of mobilization and rallying support for their NRM to secure all elective positions in Kampala.

She said the party comprises a collection of cadres well equipped with self-defence and basic military skills before being passed out by President Museveni on August 31, 2014.

The association, whose patron is the Kampala Central RCC, Allan Kajik, threatened to dislodge the opposition through conducting massive rallies, underground campaigns and door-to engagement with the people of Kampala so as to sell the party ideology to the public.

“We have the numbers. Currently the group has a membership of 250 able-bodied youth who are willing to against all odds traverse the entire city selling our party leaders and we believe by the end of the 2016 elections, we would have helped to change the history of Kampala in terms of leadership,” Nanono observed.

She noted that the association has so far won a total of 20 youth from different opposition parties after being convinced that joining the ‘yellow bus’ is the only way to go.

The youth have on the same note vowed to de-campaign former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, disclosing all his dirty games that have been crippling the NRM party.

Cadres 2014 leaders yesterday denounced Mbabazi, urging President Museveni to convene meetings of the party leadership to expel him from the organisation.

They accused Mbabazi of allying with hostile forces to remove Museveni from power.
