President Yoweri Museveni has today launched the NRM party newspaper titled ‘Public Lens’ that will seek to publicize party programmes and achievements.
While addressing thousands of people who had gathered at Masindi Golf Course Grounds for the 31st NRM Aniversary celebrations, the President said the new publication will help the party document the achievements as per the Manifesto pledges,
The party Secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba said the aim of newspaper is to fill up the communication gap between the party and the public.
According to Museveni, the paper will help NRM to speak to the public. Richard Todwong, the NRM Deputy Secretary General, says the “PUBLIC LENS” will help the party to communicate facts and document the achievements of the NRM Government.
He dispelled fears that the paper will compete with the government owned New Vision. “The New vision is doing some good work but this is for the Party. It’s going to help the party document the achievements as per the Manifesto pledges,” he said.
Todwong also said the paper will be more detailed than the ‘snap’ news in other newspapers. The newspaper will be published monthly.
