National Resistance Movement (NRM) party candidates in Busoga sub-region want the party secretariat to facilitate them to counter  opposition rivals, who they accuse of funding a smear campaign against them.

The NRM candidates say they risk losing their seats due to lack of campaign funds. Speaking during the launch of the NRM party manifesto at Jinja city conference hall on Saturday, the NRM candidates said they are financially constrained because of the just concluded primary elections.

They argued that it is hard for them to battle their rivals from the opposition political parties, most of whom are using money to win over voters.

Brenda Namukuta, the Kaliro district Woman NRM parliamentary candidate, said presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi's National Unity Platform (NUP) has adopted the door-to-door campaign, which has demoralized NRM mobilisers due to lack of funds. According to Namukuta, the tales of President Yoweri Museveni’s achievements have been watered down by the opposition.

Rachel Magoola, the Bugweri district NRM Woman parliamentary candidate, said the opposition members are using petty cash to manipulate the poorly facilitated party structures into supporting their preferred candidates. Magoola stressed that NRM chairpersons at the village level are even proving campaign platforms to opposition at the expense of their party candidates due to lack of funds.

Robert Kanusu, the Jinja City NRM mayoral candidate, wants the government to devise means of addressing the sugarcane question in the region as most opposition players are using the low sugarcane prices to de-campaign them.

Kanusu argues that, on top of the low cane prices, most farmers have been denied permits to sell their sugarcane to the surrounding factories, which has left them in the web of debts as they cannot earn from their agricultural investments.

However, the Kamuli District Woman MP and speaker of parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, said the government is committed to fulfilling all its’ pledges within the region and asked the mobilizers not to give up on rallying support for Museveni.

Wow, this is a perfect confession and the whole country agrees that NUP or people power is giving them sleepless nights because NRM is no more. They have become a shadow of their past.

Let nobody imagine that the claim is intended to arm twist the NRM Party to bend the rules by giving its flag bearers some money to remain relevant, that confession is real

Change is a good thing. Change is resisted by some. Change is inevitable.

A combination of factors will agitate change in any given society. Stop this politics of colors. We want performance.

Myself am a Munyankole. I'm interested in seeing how eager my Baganda and Basoga brethren are keen on taking the reigns of Uganda in their hands.

I want to see how far mere tear gas is effectively working to deny them the golden chance of taking up leadership in Uganda.

I am interested in seeing how they are ready to vindicate themselves from the common saying that they're ''batiitiizi''. Period.

Tibuhaburwa is khalas. Come rain come sun, he must rig in order to win. That's exactly what he has been doing in all previous elections.

He fights someone whose hands are tied behind their backs. Then the so-called IEC, and the sychophants (Mr. Mujuni) declare Tibuhaburwa as the winner. My foot.

But Wanainchi, you have dubiously been in power for the last 35 years, what and whom are you still Resisting.

In other words, you are even resisting your own greed and obscurantism: the official policy of concealment of crime, through falsehood, keeping Ugandans in ignorance, poverty diseases and backwardness.
