THE First Lady and MP for Ruhaama, Janet Museveni, has urged Ugandans to vote wisely so that the country does not become a laughing stock once again.

Janet, who has ended the campaigns for re-election as MP for Ruhaama Constituency, reminded the people that Uganda which was once a forgotten country before it was liberated by the NRA, is now peaceful under the rule of constitutionalism and Ugandans should elect the NRM to ensure continuity.

“You have the power to re-elect the NRM so that we continue with our development efforts,” she said.

A press release from her office stated that Janet, also minister of state for Karamoja Affairs, said the NRM ideology included unity and cooperation of all Ugandans as brothers and sisters, peace and poverty eradication and advised Ugandans to avoid being divided along religious, tribalistic issues and unite to build a firm united nation.

“Africans are still dying of hunger and diseases because they have failed to unite and develop their continent. Let us accept each other, cooperate, unite and build our country,” she said.

While addressing rallies in the 39 parishes in Ruhaama County, Janet said the NRM is the first government in the history of Uganda to design and execute people-centred programmes like the UPE, USE, NAADS, and Prosperity for All directly targeting improving the common man’s livelihood and deserves to be given firm roots through the people’s votes so that it remains in governance to accomplish its objectives.

She said that the NRM Government started from scratch with infrastructure including schools and health units constructed in the 60s but has made commendable developments not witnessed in the country before.

She added that in addition to building infrastructure, the NRM Government is now in high gear trying to ensure that each household has an income and encouraged the people not to lose hope but to return it in power to implement its manifesto and accomplish all the unfinished business.

Janet advised the people of Ruhaama to ignore her political opponents who have been spreading malicious propaganda against her, saying that what she has accomplished in only five years is clear testimony that her bid for MP was not in search for a job but God’s calling to offer services and contribute to developing her birth place, which had stagnated for long under her predecessor.

She said the products of her tenure as Ruhaama MP from 2006 to 2010 are just a foundation which she is determined and committed to build on when re-elected.

In addition to supporting programmes in the NRM manifesto, Janet said she will continue the struggle to construct and rehabilitate schools not catered for in the Government programme so that children can quickly access a better environment to depict what the NRM Government stands for. Water will be provided to all schools and health units and later be extended to the communities. The Government has a plan for the health facilities to be rehabilitated and equipped to ensure their improved performance in the coming financial year.

Janet said she will continue supporting improved agriculture and encourage income generation for improved livelihoods and also introduce a revolving funds for the elderly and the religious prayer places. She also commissioned volunteer NRM task forces from each of the 383 villages in Ruhaama urging them to step into the footsteps of the NRA liberators who started this party and work selflessly to mobilise support and votes for NRM flag bearers right from the President to the LC1 so as to consolidate the peace and developments under the NRM governance.

“Everybody’s vote is equally important, so go out and mobilise everyone without discrimination or ignoring those who have defected to other parties so that we bring them back and build a strong Movement to propel Uganda to further heights which the future generation will be proud of,” she said.

Janet urged all NRM registered voters in Ruhaama to turn up in big numbers on the election days and vote overwhelmingly for their party’s flag bearers and not for personalities to guarantee continuity of the Movement Government’s development agenda.
She also welcomed big numbers of people who crossed from FDC to the NRM and urged them to mobilise those still at large to return and rejoin the NRM party committed to building a peaceful, united and prosperous Uganda.

Janet was flanked by NRM flagbearers including Naome Kabasharira for Woman MP Ntungamo and Denis Singahakye for district chairman who pledged to work as a team to further develop Ntungamo District.

The people of Ruhaama County praised the First Lady’s performance as their MP in the last five years and assured her of 100% votes for her and President Yoweri Museveni and all NRM flag bearers in coming elections.

They however, requested for electricity to be extended to their parishes, grinding mills for women groups and more water sources and health units to cater for the community which still walk long distances to access the available ones, technical schools and rehabilitation of roads to ease transportation of their farm products.
