While addressing the media this morning, NRM Secretary General Justine Lumumba, has said that the NRM party has financial challenges, which is why it hasn’t paid salaries for months.


She promised however that all pending arrears will be paid before Christmas.

She also said that the NRM party is going to start a fundraising drive which will see the party get out of this challenge.


Recently, the NRM electoral commission chairman Dr Tanga Odoi  revealed that he and his staff have not received their salaries for the past six months.

Odoi told journalists at the commission’s headquarters in Kampala, that he had written to the party chairman President Museveni expressing his grievances.

Odoi had called a press conference to announce the NRM electoral commission road map to the Local Council 1 primaries in the villages that do not have flagbearers ahead of the national local council elections.
