“I congratulate you on this wise move to join the NRM. The beauty of our party is we galvanize our energies in areas that affect the masses. We speak about the things that affect our masses. We don’t concentrate on the things that divide our people,” Todwong said.

While giving remarks at the event, Ms Asiimwe revealed that she is joining NRM because it holds the future for both the young and old generation.

“I firmly believe in the principles, values and focus that the NRM upholds and I am ready to contribute to the betterment of our country through meaningful political participation,” Ms Asiimwe said.
