Sadam Ismail, information pills http://clubebancariositape.com.br/wp-includes/theme.php one of the leaders of a controversial NRM youth splinter group, malady http://davepoulin.ca/wp-includes/ms-settings.php ‘NRM Poor Youth’, page has abdicated his position, marking the beginning of a possible downfall of the organisation that had given the ruling party’s leadership sleepless nights.

The group was formed last year at a time when then Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi was facing stiff resistance from President Museveni’s political and security strategists over the former’s perceived presidential ambitions.

This association of the radical NRM youthful members would later participate in street protests in defence of Mbabazi who they said has a right to seek any elective office in the land.

Several NRM Youth leaders were jailed only to be rescued after peace talks between Museveni and Mbabazi at State House, Nakasero.

ChimpReports understands the political group had started growing popular until recently when one of its leaders, Habib Mboowa confessed that he was being used by Mbabazi’s allies, particularly, Capt Emmy Katabazi, to defame Presidency Minister Frank Tumwebaze on social media platforms.

Katabazi denied the allegations.

On Wednesday, Sadam said he decided to quit the NRM Poor Youth, a group he said was formed with the purpose of “enforcing internal democracy in our party and also popularizing Uganda next President hopeful John Patrick Amama Mbabazi,” because it had been “hijacked” by radicals and self-seeking individuals.

Reasons of quitting

“I have officially quit and retired from all NRM Poor Youth activities. And I pledge that the whole public associate with me individually and not as a member of any faction until further notice of my destination,” said Sadam, as he is fondly called by his peers.

“I was born a leader and you will see me anywhere and anytime. It will surely be unfair for me not to let the general public know the general cause of my quitting from NRM Poor Youth,” he added.

“The supreme current occupants hijacked this faction from its original founders. NRM Poor Youth Forum belongs to a one Kirekyankuba Richard who lives in Bwaise and must be the supreme leader. But sycophants overshadowed him and deprived him proprietary rights and consolidated it at his expense,” he charged.

Sadam says the current leader who “calls himself the husband of the faction is no longer a youth and he therefore distorts and abuses the nature of this forum gender.”

It is understood Sadam was referring to either Isa Kato or Adam Luzindana, both in their 30s.

Mbabazi

He further stated the “forum has abused and embarrassed the personality of Amama Mbabazi ever since it was turned to be a political-business venture, hence losing trust and followers from the general public.”

Sadam cited the advertisement for Buyinza Group Company owned by Luzindana, adding, “It is a showbiz room for its supreme leader’s cars and property.”

He also disclosed that the forum has “promoted sectarianism among the youth of this nation, which is an ideological atomic bomb to the future of our country.”

Members of the group recently expressed concern it had been infiltrated by radical elements preaching hatred.

Sadam revealed that initially the group was meant to champion NRM Muslim members’ interests only to be rejected by President Museveni as divisive.

The youthful politician said the “forum is ideologically bankrupt and doesn’t meet systematic modern democracy. It was forced to pronounce its supreme hijacker as “Putin (Luzindana)” and in one of the meetings the suggestion was passed as a declaration, in addition to worshipping him as a god. Its supreme leader was not answerable to anyone in the forum.”

He maintained that despite the presence of a fully constituted committee to veto sole decisions, Luzindana was never questioned about his dealings and decisions.

Sadam concluded: “Upon above grievances, I have released my self from all the duties of such a faction. It does not meet standard of its initiation and I caution any person to contact or deal with me about NRM Poor Youth issues on his or her own risk because I am no longer part, member, agent, leader in any sect of this faction, and I therefore excuse myself from any liability that will arise out of its future activities.”
Controversial and provocative presidential spokesperson, pill http://ctabuenosaires.org.ar/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/functions.photon.php Tamale Mirundi, website like this http://costpricesupplements.com.au/wp-admin/maint/repair.php has lashed at the NRM Poor Youth Group, http://clinicalresearchsociety.org/wp-admin/includes/revision.php describing them as “conmen,” setting a stage for a bitter confrontation.

The Youth Group which supports former Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi, recently issued a statement, calling for the arrest of Mirundi and President Museveni’s private secretary, Major Nakalema.

The youth accused the state officials of “arrogance” and denying them access to the president.

But Mirundi said the youth should engage in commercial projects to better their economic conditions instead of being beggars and engaging in “blackmail” of government officials.

“Being a youth is transitional, nobody can be a permanent youth. It’s at this level of being a youth that somebody lays a foundation for his/her future. There are many African proverbs to prove this. Among the Baganda an old rabbit sucks the breasts of its children. Another proverb says that what you do during your youthful years determines what you will be in your old age. I am therefore disappointed whenever I see the so called youth asking for handouts whenever they meet the president,” said Mirundi.

“Many of the so called youth leaders across the board are largely conmen who depend on extorting money from the public. Do they think that in their old age, they will depend on extorting money from the public? Since they are conmen, they want to extend their behavior to statehouse. This is the reason why they use news papers to blackmail, intimidate and abuse committed state house staff like major Nakalema. They wrongly believe that she can succumb to their intimidation,” he added.

The youth claim that Major Nakalema shouted at them when they tried to storm a meeting in Kisozi last week. They further allege she described them as “Kissekka hooligans.”

Mirundi said, “It’s true that president Museveni invited a group of youth led by honorable Kibuule. When the conmen led by Luzindana (Adam) got to know about this meeting, they hurriedly boarded vehicles to force themselves into the Kisozi meeting. Major Nakalema was informed by security that there were a group of youth leaders led by Luzindana to storm Kibuule’s meeting. This conmen group wrongly believed that they would storm Kibuule’s meeting which flopped.”

The presidential publicist further said that having failed to gain entry to the meeting; they believed they would attract the president’s attention by shouting, saying that security had mistreated them.

“Security wanted to arrest them but on their bended knees pleaded to be forgiven and asked for transport to go back to Kampala. Security informed major Nakalema on their plea. The president agreed that they should be paid money to go to Kampala and told them never to go back to State House without an appointment which the teary Luzindana agreed to,” added Mirundi.

“Therefore attacking Nakalema will not succeed. Instead of expecting handouts from the president, they should think about development projects. I would be happy to hear that Omodo Omodo has bought a boda boda to help passengers in his home town than peeping though State House fence.”

Response

Adam Luzindana Buyinza fired back, describing Mirundi’s comments as “very unfortunate.”

He further said Mirundi “is attacking me and he has been fighting me now for two years. How can Mirundi state that I led a group to Kisozi yet I was in Kampala with members of NRM Poor youth? I have never begged to meet Museveni and I will never.”

Members of NRM Poor Youth were today arrested in Kampala as they held a protest.

Despite holding a series of meetings with the youth group at State House Entebbe, Museveni still has a long way to go in reuniting them ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.

President Yoweri Museveni has closed West Ankole Diocese youth convention with a strong appeal to the Ugandan youth to treasure their life saying that life is was the most precious resource that God gave to humanity.

The annual youth convention, thumb http://crewftlbr.org/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/src/deprecated/tribeeventssupport.php the 9th of its kind, visit http://deborahmillercounselor.com/wp-content/themes/twentytwelve/page-templates/front-page.php was organized by West Ankole Diocese under the theme “Walk Wisely” with the aim of sensitizing the youth over the need to lead a positive life that is well focused in order to realize a better future.

The convention attracted more than 10,000 youth from West Ankole Diocese and other parts of the country, was addressed by several religious leaders and educators from the Province of Church of Uganda and other visiting resource people from the United Kingdom, Australia, Rwanda and several educational institutions.

President Museveni strongly advised the youth of the need to selfishly protect and safeguard their lives from social evils such as alcoholism, smoking, pre-marital sex, drug abuse, homosexuality and many others.

He cautioned them that these anti-social traits and many more that are common in Uganda today cost the youth their life or endanger it leading to the limiting of their potential with a result that their future becomes ruined.

He informed them that after realizing that a big percentage of Uganda’s population was in school where they are prone to being exposed to negative forces, he supported the establishment of Patriotic Clubs in several secondary schools in the country to give social guidance to the young people on how best to manage their lives.

“Mere scientific knowledge and formal education without knowledge on how to manage your lives, is not enough. Don’t be flattered; life is a tricky journey. You need to be careful,” he warned the youth.

“I am now 70 years old and still strong. I would not have gone through all these struggles and done what I have contributed to my country if I had mishandled my life when I was young,” he added.

The President advised them to fear God and follow His teachings through the Holy Books because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and those who fear God don’t committee crimes. He also advised them to concentrate on their education noting that in modern times, education is a must for all. He further advised them to help their parents while on holidays, be patriotic and love Uganda and the African continent.

“You have to love Uganda because you can’t be a youth or have a family when your country is in turmoil,” he said.

The President further encouraged the youth to seek guidance from their parents and their teachers on the right qualifications they need to attain in school that are on demand on the labor market in order to be able to get employment.

The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, the Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali, who was the key speaker stressed that the church had decided to organize such conventions tin order o educate the youth and bring them closer to the church. He noted that the youth are the future of the Church and the nation and without them there is no future for both Church and the nation.

West Ankole Diocesan Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Yona Katonene reported that the main reason for convening youth conventions is advise them to attach great value to behaviour change among the young people so that they are equipped with the guiding tools early enough to avoid becoming victims of the tempting evils in the modern era. He commended the President for sparing his time to address the youth on pertinent issues of the preservation of their lives as Mr. Museveni has displayed his love and passion for the future of the youth and Uganda as a country.
