New Youth Group Formed to Counter Mbabazi
A few days after coming out to declare his ambitions to stand for presidency in the forthcoming general elections, a new NRM youth group has sprouted out to counteract former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi.
The group named ‘Organizing For Action Vote for Museveni 2016’ hold that too much propaganda and lies have been peddled against President Museveni by youth under the NRM Poor Youth which according to the group is funded by deposed NRM Secretary General Amama Mbabazi.
“We are a volunteer organization that intends to dispel all the propaganda against Museveni propounded by opportunistic and self-seeking individuals and groups such as NRM Poor Youth, Jobless Brotherhood and other civil society organizations in the country,” said the group General Secretary Gerald Bagonza while addressing journalists in Kampala on Thursday afternoon.
“We realized the need to make youths aware and appreciative of the fundamental achievements of the NRM under President Museveni. We intend to mobilize and guide the misled youth who have been turned into tools of chaos especially in urban centers.”
The group highlighted a need for the country especially the youth to be availed with the political history of the country so as to be able to appreciate the achievements of the NRM regime in relation to the past.
