Tamale Mirundi


President elect, pill http://codigoweb.co/wp-admin/includes/screen.php Yoweri Museveni has told jubilant supporters in Kiruhura district to take their electoral mandate seriously and urged them to continue supporting the NRM party for the country to fast-track its development process.

“Don’t play with your electoral mandate. Politics is not something to joke with because bad leadership is costly. Don’t just vote your friend but stick to your party the Movement because we must keep with the people of the same ideology, thinking and plan if we are to develop Uganda,” he said.

The President said under the Movement government, the message is the same and consistent; ‘emphasizing national unity which created the base for developing Uganda’.

“Any one propagating sectarianism is an enemy of the Movement and Uganda. The People of Uganda have for centuries lived together in harmony and complimented each other in their way of life exchanging goods and services like food, defense materials and medicine so why should anyone today try to divide them in order to gain political capital. Such a person should be avoided, detested and exposed,” he said.

Museveni who was accompanied by his wife and Karamoja Affairs Minister Janet Kataha Museveni was Monday evening speaking at a victory rally by supporters at Kiruhuura district headquarters to celebrate the victory of the Movement in the February 18th Presidential and Parliamentary elections and also congratulate the President who hails from the same district upon his re-election as the President of Uganda for the next five years.

He commended the electorate of Kiruhura for overwhelmingly voting for him and the Movement with a 91 percent majority vote and also for sending only NRM members of parliament to the National Parliament which he said showed not only their love and trust in the movement government but also the fact that the electorate in the district was politically mature and united.

He appealed to them and the other districts in the country to do the same in the upcoming local council elections so as to strengthen the Movement and enable her work and cement the national gains Uganda has registered in the last three decades.

He re-assured the people of Uganda that no one can disrupt the hard earned peace ushered in by the NRM and urged the citizens to exploit it by working to get rid of house hold poverty.

Mr. Museveni commended the people of Kiruhuura for adhering to the government message to fight poverty through modern agriculture especially dairy farming but appealed to them to modernize it further by planting modern cattle pasture, stopping overstocking and engaging in zero grazing where land has largely been fragmented.

He also advised them to diversify their income and engage in growing of coffee, fruits and poultry farming. He also cautioned them against land fragmentation, which he said posed a big danger to the future of agriculture as well as the future of the coming generations.


The President warned the Youth about the danger posed by HIV/Aids whose prevalence rates and new infections are on the increase in most parts of Uganda.

“You the youth should avoid cheap temptations because they are temporally. You should have discipline and know the importance of health. I am 71 years old but I have managed to address over 300 rallies in just 100 days without any problem because I have handled my life properly. It’s not wise to squander the life God gave to you because it’s a precious gift and parents need to play their part and advise their children to lead a healthy and disciplined way,” he said.

Museveni urged parents to be honest to their children about their way of life because you are their number one councilors failure of which you would have neglected your God given duty” he said.

Mrs. Janet Museveni on her part commended the people of Kiruhuura for keeping the promise and voting the Movement overwhelmingly.

“We came here to campaign I asked you whether you will vote the Movement and you promised me so, which you have done and I must thank you whole heartedly for being trust worthy and keeping the promise and standing for the Movement,” she said.

Nyabushozi Member of Parliament Fred Mwesigye said that the National Resistance Movement is the only regime that has brought hope to the country in Uganda’s history.

He also said that President elect Museveni is a God-sent messenger of transformation because God works through people and asked Ugandans to render him all the support he needs to accomplish his God given mission.
The merrymaking has not died out just yet in the camp of the ruling National Resistance Movement, physician http://coogomezplata.com/consultas/includes_para_consultas/cabezotecontrol.php as they continue to celebrate the triumph of their presidential candidate Yoweri Museveni who last week defeated 7 opponents with just above 60% of the total vote.

Museveni polled 5, http://dayacounselling.on.ca/wp-admin/includes/class-theme-upgrader-skin.php 617,503 votes (60.75%) beating his strongest contender Col Dr Kizza  Besigye who managed 3,270,290 representing 35.3%,  while none of the rest rose above 2% of the vote.

According to the NRM Secretary General Mrs Justine Kasule Lumumba, preparations are underway for the ruling party’s main victory rally over the weekend.

But all this is against the advice of former presidential press secretary Tamale Murundi, who believes it is still too early to celebrate Col Besigye’s downfall.

The NRM, Mirundi says, won with 60% but lost in a number of major cities including the capital Kampala to the opposition candidate and that is by no means something to ignore.

In his regular televised interview on NBS on Tuesday morning, Mr Mirundi stressed that Dr Besigye’s aim remains to fail and bring down the current regime, and his loss last week changes noting about this, “because he is not a democrat.”

He explained that Dr Besigye continues to maintain a hard grip on voters in Kampala because President Museveni has persistently fallen into his trap, thanks to the “inept city managers,” who (Mirundi) accused to working for Besigye.

The controversial journalist holds that President Museveni must now start cutting his losses and implement some Dr Besigye’s policy propositions, which he said have strengthened the latter’s message of resistance against the regime in the urban areas.

Terming him as an “itching opponent” and a none democrat, Mirundi says Besigye will stop at nothing in stirring violence amongst the city dwellers that believe in him, and with that there will never be serenity, though the next five years.

“The issue is not winning with 60% and dominating parliament; the issue is allowing this chaotic man, whose aim is to overthrow government, to control all the cities around you,” Mirundi said.

He went on to accuse government leaders and the managers of KCCA, for ignoring Besigye’s message to the people and thereby falling into his trap.

“Besigye has all along been telling you that Museveni should be removed because he has usurped all the powers of the people, and government institutions; and then at the same time you see a minister (Fred Ruhindi) coming up with proposal to stop the people of Kampala from being able to vote for their Lord Mayor! Who is this man working for?” wondered Mirundi.

“Jennifer Musisi came here and promised to decongest the city and the first thing she jumped on was getting rid of the taxis. She dislodged UTODA and shredded the business that employs tens of thousands directly and indirectly.”

“How can people vote for you when they are losing their buildings to banks as Musisi shuts them under the cover of hygiene?”

Mirundi further warned, “Besigye might have lost, but he is not the kind of person that gives up fast. You are never going to sleep when he is out there. He is going to keep causing violence. There will not be peace, except if you solve these problems that he keeps mentioning.”
