In a motion tabled by Nyakana and seconded by Mengo Parish councillor, Beatrice Kabagenyi and Geofrey Bahemuka , Kamwokya, the leaders said that amidst hard ship in the city, they has been great improvement in the city.

Eddie Mukasa, youth leader Kagugube zone said that the youth have benefitted from NRM programmes siting that Youth Livelihood programme, the students education scheme, and the skill treating programmes.

Mukasa said that by assenting to the anti- homosexuality law Museveni has safeguarded the youth who are the future leaders.

“We have reasons why we support Museveni, we know how far he has brought us. Women now has a say in this country,” Chairperson Old Kampala, Rose Okumu said.

Salim Uhuru, Chairperson Kisenyi II parish said that, “They are some people who say that they are tired, for us we shall go on and support Museveni.
