Security Agencies to Vet NRM Coordinators
All National Resistance Movement-NRM Coordinators who will be campaigning for President Yoweri Museveni will be subjected to security scrutiny.
The coordinators will be recruited as part of a nationwide drive championed by President Museveni’s Senior Political Advisor and Personal Assistant Milly Babalanda.
The recruitment follows a directive issued recently by President Yoweri Museveni, for the enlistment of cadres from the village level ahead of 2021 elections.
Today, Babalanda said that unlike the ordinary NRM structure, the volunteers will directly be under the NRM Chairman’s office and that they will be tasked with popularizing Museveni’s candidature, protect his vote and defend his image.
Babalanda added that she intends to recruit three volunteers per village across the Country.
Deputy Government Spokesperson Colonel Shaban Bantariza defended the use of government security offices and structures to scrutinize party cadres on a mission to defend one presidential candidate.
