A strong show of unity by NRM leaders marked the campaign rallies in Soroti City East Constituency on Saturday, only days away from the pending by election.
Six rallies in Otatai, Acetgwen and Opiai wards saw the Vice President Jessica Alupo-also woman MP for Katakwi district interact with the voters on the distinctive mark, the NRM has made for Teso region.
“We are here to ask you to continue a peaceful journey led by President Museveni, by voting Herbert Ariko. NRM promised a University, good roads, improved Agriculture with tractors, sustained peace and on all its promises; NRM is continously delivering. Let’s not interrupt this progress. Vote right”, said the Vice President, as she led several ministers and MPs into the campaign trail.
Elsewhere the Prime Minister Rt. Hon Robinah Nabbanja held a series of meetings with several special interest groups on her second day in the field. Several ministers including Gen Jeje Odongo (Foreign Affairs), Musa Ecweru (State Minister, works), Peter Ogwang (State Minister, sports), Hellen Adoa (State Minister, Fisheries) and Kenneth Obote Ongalo (Teso Affairs) among others are also camped here to canvass support for NRM.
The Director for mobilization at the NRM secretariate Rose Mary Seninde urged voters to send someone who will join a bigger family of decision makers for improved services. “I therefore appeal to you to vote Herbert Ariko”, she requested.
Herbert Ariko has, in his previous tenure at Parliament endeared himself to the masses as a results-oriented leader whose leadership will unite and serve the people.
Later in the evening, the Vice President and her team were hosted on Etop Radio and TV East. The discussion centered on development issues and socio-economic transformation.
