Ibanda District receives 665 bicycles for NRM Leadership
Ibanda District has received 665 bicycles for the National Resistance Movement (NRM)Leadership.
The bicycles are meant for the party’s village and parish chairpersons.
While receiving the bicycles at Ibanda Central Police Station on Wednesday, the district NRM general secretary, Elias Tumubweine, said the donation will ease the movement of party leaders at grass root level while mobilizing and sensitizing masses about government programs in their areas.
Obeth Asimiire, the party’s district publicity secretary, said chairpersons that betrayed the party and supported independents or the oppositions will not get the bicycles, as per NRM national secretariat guidelines.
President Yoweri Museveni commissioned ‘Yellow’ Bicycles for Village NRM chairpersons in all the 68,700 villages last year in August.
He said that procurement of bicycles for NRM LC1 chairpersons was made possible due to donations and fundraising from party members.
President Museveni then, urged party members and well-wishers to continue donating to the Party to allow them procure motorcycles and vehicles for all NRM LC3 chairpersons and NRM District chairpersons respectively.
