NRM Secretary General, Hon. Kasule Lumumba has received 93 Youth who crossed over into the NRM party as she concludes her two day political working visit to Moroto district.
The SG together with her team that included Every ALA Members of Parliament, Hon George Odongo and Hon Mathias Kasamba, lectured the young generation and encouraged them to be innovative.
“A youth must be useful to him/herself. How much are you useful to yourself?”, Kasamba asked.
On his part, Odongo challenged the young people to take advantage of the government programs including the youth livelihood schemes on top of starting own income generating projects in a meeting that took place at Moroto District Council Hall.
“On behalf of the entire NRM leadership, I welcome you to NRM” said the Secretary General.
The young people demanded for a representation at the Secretariat headquarters but Lumumba said it was difficult having all regions represented in the secretariat. She however promised to create a position of a regional coordinator for Karamoja under her office. She also pledged to write to the coordinators of Operation Wealth Creation (OWC) in Moroto to ensure that the young people are given due consideration.
The SG further pledged to send back the two MPs to Moroto after the elections for productive training.
The converts were all dressed up in the yellow T-shirts as new family members.
