National Resistance Movement (NRM) treasurer Rose Namayanja has revealed she will not be returning to elective politics.
Speaking during the launch of her NGO, Rose Namayanja Foundation, in Nakaseke on Thursday, the ruling party treasurer said it was time for her to concentrate on giving back to people.
“I served you for 15 years as a Member of Parliament. Let the young and new faces also serve the people of Nakaseke,” Namayanja said while at Bukatira Primary School.
“I will not return to elective politics .There will never be the return of Rose Namayanja into politics.”
Namayanja served as Youth MP for Central Uganda since 2001 before being elected as Woman MP for Nakaseke up to 2015.
She said now her only stint in politics will be canvassing for votes for members of her ruling NRM party.
Namayanja said she would be putting all her efforts in empowering the unprivileged locals of Nakaseke to help them elevate their living standards.
“I am a product of a Good Samaritan and it is now time for me to also give back to families through empowering them,” she said.
According to the NRM treasurer, a Good Samaritan in the names of George William Kiberu helped her attain her dream by giving her a bursary to study for free at Light College Katikamu and she was able to complete her education.
“On many occasions we can’t know what the future holds but this should not stop us from dreaming big,” Namayanja added.
Through the Rose Namayanja Foundation, unprivileged locals are empowered financially, in terms of health and education.
She noted that a number of schools have been constructed and facilitated with equipment through the foundation.
According to Namayanja, the fact that she has retired from elective politics will help her reach out to people of various political affiliations in Nakaseke and help them.
Namayanja was in 2015 involved in a nasty accident along Bombo road that left her nursing serious injuries.
