ARUA - As part of preparations for the National Resistance Movement (NRM) liberation day celebrations, the party pressure group has intensified massive mobilisation campaign.
The pressure group dubbed West Nile Effort for Museveni, has launched the ‘keep Arua town clean’ campaign to ensure the town is clean ahead of President Yoweri Museveni’s visit.
The group has also embarked on designing pots with the national colours at Arua Hill Boma grounds.
Muhamud Abdallah, the founder of the pressure group, said the designed pots with national colours are a sign of Uganda’s liberation from the colonial powers. He said the pots signify the peace and unity brought by the ruling NRM party.
Khan Ayub, the publicity secretary for the group, said the victory celebration being brought to Arua is a significant and memorable occasion for the people to utilise and tap opportunities related to it.
Onzima Samir, the leader of a bodaboda group in Awindiri, said he has never experienced war because he was born in President Museveni’s regime. He said the peace is worth protecting.
Samir advised parents to teach their children the history of Uganda, especially the current youth generation that has failed to understand the past and present. He also urged religious leaders to intervene in situations that are driving the country into turmoil so as to avoid history repeating itself.
The Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces, Police and various patriotic groups in the district have been involved in parade practice to ensure the day is colourful and memorable.
