PASTOR Batiringaya Okumu, the leader of several born-again churches in Acholi and Masindi, has said he will use his churches to mobilise support for the NRM party.
During a meeting organised by the Acholi Solidarity Mobilisation Group at Olwal in Lamogi sub-county recently, Okumu led over 2,000 people from his congregation and declared support to the NRM party.
During the same function, FDC sub-county chairpersons of Atyak, Pabbo, Lamogi and Amuru, with over 315 party delegates, crossed over to the NRM.
â€œIn FDC, we had nine tactics for soliciting for votes without spending money. One was penetrating churches in Kilak county,â€ the FDC deserters testified.
David Obong, the chairman of the mobilisation group, said they would work with the defectors to destroy the FDC network in Kilak.
