The event participants included the  Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF), capsule http://completehealthacupuncture.com/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/google-api-php-client/src/contrib/google_orkutservice.php Uganda Prisons services, discount http://chuaxuattinhsom.info/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/shortcodes/vimeo.php Uganda Police Force (UPF) who are the eventual winners and the Uganda Wild Life Authority (UWA) who were the hosts of the one-week competition.

There were a total of seven disciplines in the competition which included; Shooting/range, Darts, Handball, Netball, Volleyball, Football, and athletics for both men and women.

UPF dominated almost all the categories with the army team coming second and Prisons in third respectively. The army chief political Commissariat Col. Felix Kulayigye reiterated the need to use the games as a platform to enhance cooperation in the forces.

“As we have a common role of providing security we have to cooperate and we can be the best as a team.” Felix Kulayigye said.

AIGP Andrew Sorowen congratulated his charges for a job well done and told them to start early planning for the next event in 2016, “I would like to commend you our gallant sportsmen/women who put up a spirited war in ensuring that Police retained the title. Let us remain focus for the 13th edition of 2016.”

The 12th edition of the competition was under the theme ‘Enhancing Wildlife Conservation and Security through sports.’ “The theme was carefully chosen in recognition of ability of sports to bring people of all categories together to speak one language. Illegal trade and poaching are very serious, and we want to be serious about it.” A statement from the hosts, UWA, stated.

The next edition will be held in June 2016 with police as the hosts.
A group of NRM leaders in Ndorwa County East in Kabale district have taken a decision to boycott the ruling party’s primaries, tadalafil http://clubebancariositape.com.br/wp-includes/kses.php a head of next year’s general elections.

The leaders also endorsed the area MP Hon Wilfred Niwagaba, thumb http://cognac-ambassador.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/really-simple-captcha.php one of the four ‘NRM Rebel MPS’ to stand in the 2016 general elections on an independent ticket.

The leaders included the district councilors, http://cfsk.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-update-post-endpoint.php sub county councilors and opinion leaders from the four sub counties of Kyanamira, Buhara, Maziba and Kaharo, who unanimously resolved support their MP.

In last Saturday’s meeting held at Kyanamira Sub County, the leaders angrily expressed dissatisfaction over the manner in which their legislator Niwagaba was hounded out of the ruling party, back in 2013.

The leaders also attacked the Regional Affairs Minister Hon Shem Bagaine, whom they accused to turning himself to Ndorwa’s kingmaker, always deciding whom the people should vote on the NRM ticket.

The Minister is said to have brought one Avitus Tibarimbasa, who served only one term before Bagaine himself de-campaigned him saying he was doing nothing in Parliament. He then brought Niwagaba and people voted him, but now he is up against him because he is a ‘rebel.’

“The Minister cannot keep deciding on our behalf; let us now boycott the party primaries because we have been betrayed by the NRM,” said Jolly Beinamaryo one of the councilors.

Speaking at the meeting, MP Wilfred Niwagaba told the leaders that he would never return to the NRM having been unceremoniously expunged simply because of his thoughts.

“I am glad that you the people of Ndorwa have decided and I will go by your decision and contest on the independent ticket in the coming elections,” he said.

One of the councilors Johnson Baguma, said in the meeting, that two years after their representative was hounded out of the party, the NRM had never taken an initiative to inform the people of Ndorwa, what had happened.
