Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi has formally introduced the Minister without Portfolio in charge of mobilization, Richard Todwong, to the NRM district administrative officers.

According to a statement from the Prime Minister's office, Mbabazi said a lot of distortion had been featured in the media insinuating that there was rivalry between him and Todwong.

 He clarified that, there was no disagreement to the fact that the Party Secretary General who is also Prime Minister, requires support to execute his duties diligently.

 “My schedule as Prime Minister and leader of Government business in Parliament involves a lot of work and it’s the reason Todwong was appointed as Minister without portfolio in charge of mobilization, to assist the Secretary General of the NRM party,” he clarified, adding that Todwong has not  replaced him.

This was during the closing of the NRM Party district administrators’ conference, on Tuesday at the NRM Secretariat at Kyadondo Road in Kampala.

Mbabazi said Todwong was appointed to that post in recognition for his exemplary contribution in consolidating the NRM party in northern Uganda.  

He commended the respective district administrative officers of the NRM party for the excellent service rendered to the party.

Mbabazi said the Party leadership was aware of the administrative challenges they continuously encounter such as the challenge of salaries and rent for the party district offices.

He assured them that the NRM secretariat had discussed the matter and a solution will be found.   

The Premier also reminded party administrative officers that their job requires knowledge of a wide range of qualitative and quantitative methods in managing the NRM party offices.

He said acquisition of such administrative skills will be addressed through regular trainings and retreats and regular communication.
