The National Treasurer of the National Resistance Movement (NRM), approved Hon Rose Namayanja Nsereko has called upon the people of Kyadondo East Constituency to choose a leader who will lobby for services directly from the government to benefit them.
She made the call on Sunday as she joined hundreds of Christians to commemorate the Pentecost day at ‘Our Lady Gate of Heaven’ Catholic Church, cheapest Lutete Sub Parish in Gayaza Parish.
“The current situation does not call for electing a new government because there is one [NRM] already, recipe but to choose an MP who suits in the existing government ready to interface with it to cause development in Kyadondo East and beyond,” Namayanja said.
The NRM Party Treasurer rallied the people to vote the NRM flag bearer Sitenda Ssebalu on June 29 “because of his good working relationship with the Central Government.”
“God has granted us a second chance to elect a leader who will be able to liaise well with the Central Government. I appeal to you to vote Sebbalu since he is the only candidate in the race that can cause development in the area,” she pleaded.
Namayanja was also quick to caution the congregation against merging developmental issues with religion or politics, a vice she said, had caused many areas to lag behind in terms of development.
She instead urged them to join hands and work together on issues of national interest irrespective of their political or religious affiliations.
“The NRM government has always discouraged divisions based on tribe, religion or race. When a child is being admitted to a school, you are not asked for a party card and neither are you asked for one when being admitted in a hospital,” she reasoned.
As a resident, Namayanja donated Shs5 million towards the construction of Our Lady Gate of Heaven Lutete Sub-Parish Primary School and pledged to continue working with them on developmental issues.
She contributed another Shs1 million towards Lutembe Catholic Youth Guild before pledging to invite the NRM Secretary General Rt. Hon Justine Kasule Lumumba to pay them a courtesy visit.
The main celebrant Rev Fr Philip Ngendo from Bukalasa Seminary, urged the congregation to use the examples set by the Uganda martyrs to always love their religion and serve the country wholeheartedly.
He commended Namayanja for her generosity despite being a non-Catholic Church member.
Founded in 1971, Luteete is one of the 7 Sub-Parishes that constitute Gayaza Parish.
