The deputy ambassador to the Ugandan Mission in South Africa has advised the National Resistance Movement (NRM) aspirants to focus on improving service delivery to their electorate at the lowest level in their communities if they need their votes.
Kintu Nyago made the remarks while addressing the NRM Southern Africa Chapter during a wind up of plans to travel to Uganda to support party members in the forthcoming elections.
"Tell the MPs whom you are going to campaign for that Ugandans need service delivery," he said, adding that people die from simple preventable diseases and that they do not need hospitals, but simple health centres where they can get basic medical care.
Nyago also advised Ugandans leaving South Africa for the campaigns in November to be cautious enough to prevent COVID-19. He advised them to use hand sanitizers and wear face masks, to prevent further spread of the virus.
Ismail Luzinda, the Chairman of the NRM Southern African chapter said this was the conclusion of their plan to travel to Uganda by road.
They are still mobilizing funds for the necessary donations to communities like masks and sanitizers which are needed.
"We have finalized plans and we will flag off on 27th November 2020. Our mission is to give necessary support to all NRM flag bearers at all levels and attract more youth to the party and we need to tell our ideology," Luzinda said.
Luzinda also warned the ugandans travelling, against misbehaving and undermining the people who are already on ground, but advised them to work hand in hand with the party leadership.
Philip Kakulu, Patron for the NRM Southern Africa Chapter blamed the youth in Uganda for allowing to be used by the imperialists to suppress Pan-Africanists like President Museveni.
"We are going to defend our country from the imperialists who are using some Ugandans to destabilize the country. They want to change our government through the young people," he asserted.
Herbert Ampiire president for the youth in the chapter said his focus during this campaign is to teach youth to be self-reliant by being creative and starting up their own initiatives.
"Most of our youth are still depending on either the government or on their parents for a living. We must help these youths, otherwise they will be used by anyone who promises them assistance," he explained.
The NRM Southern Africa Chapter started early this year with plans to drive to Uganda by road with a team of 100 people and 40 cars from South Africa in a bid to help campaign for all NRM members at all levels.
