The National Resistance Movement (NRM) secretary General Hon. Justice Kasule Lumumba has reechoed the need to have more administrative unites.
Speaking during the launch of the parties 2019-2021 Political Road Map at the Party Headquarters in Kampala, Kasule said that several Ugandans have approached their leadership demanding for more administrative unites ranging from Districts, Constituencies, Sub counties and divisions and zones.
Kasule says that despite the position by parliament and ministry of Finance regarding issues like limited resources to run these units, the ruling party is ready to continue pushing for proper consideration.
She added that some divisions in municipalities have become too big due to the increasing voter numbers therefore an urgent move to consider our people’s demand is vital.
“NRM is a party of the people and we strictly serve people’s demands. All those ministers and electoral commission officials serve the NRM government, if they say that there is no money, then let them find ways of getting more money or improvise through revising their budgets but we can’t leave other Ugandans unattended to simply because of money.” Kasule said during the Press Conference attended by several Members of the Central Executive Committee (CEC).
