NRM ruling Party leaders in Buganda have convened a meeting in Masaka over the weekend and endorsed Capt. George Mike Mukula for Vice Chairman NRM in charge of Eastern Uganda.
They say, Capt. Mukula is an asset in the Party who has recruited thousands for NRM in the region, he should be left to carry on the mantle
Speaking to this News Website shortly after the meeting, one of the leaders who asked for anonymity told us how Buganda leaders agreed to call on those who had interest in the same position to let it go.
He said, “It is not all about contesting but having a leader who perfectly steers the party in the region. We have worked with Capt. Mukula, he is a mover. We dont see why our dangerous striker in Eastern is substituted.”
Leaders resolved to talk to their colleagues in Eastern to make sure, Mukula goes through unopposed so that he concentrates on other party assignments.
Capt. Mukula is now stationed at plot 10 Kyadondo at the Party Headquaters where he was given a desk to receive new defectors.
He on Friday attended a press conference at NRM Headquaters addressed by Rt.Hon. Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba to launch NRM Roadmap for party primaries.
Last week he received over 60 opposition figures who crossed to NRM among them is a big fish Pauline Margaret Namagembe 2016 FDC candidate Wakiso district woman Member of Parliament.
Mukula is Ugandan politician, professional pilot, and businessman. He represented Soroti Municipality from 2001 to 2016 in the parliament of Uganda. He served as state minister of health from 2001 to 2006.
Those who have worked closely with Mukula say he is a down to earth leader, very generous, loves NRM from the bottom of his heart and is approachable. Mukula is a darling to NRM youth and he has supported many in graduating from poverty.
