The NRM deputy National Treasurer Dr. Kenneth Omona has called on voters  who will participate in the by-election in  Ruhaama to desist from any actions of hooliganism and violence during campaigns and after polls.

The former legislator instead urged voters here to embrace unity and peace throughout the electoral process.

“Ensure peace and unity during campaigns. This is the love and passion of NRM”, he said.

He was addressing structural party leaders at Ruhaama County Headquarters in Ntungamo district this Saturday.

Dr. Omona who represented the NRM secretary general Justine Kasule Lumumba urged the residents of Ruhaama to elect transformative leaders as opposed to mercantile.

He preached at length about discipline among party members revealing that the Party leadership won’t hesitate to apprehend leaders found guilty of supporting non flag bearers here and in any other elections to come.

“Such undisciplined individuals may even be denied party flags in future”, he stressed.

Speaking through an interpreter, Dr. Omona observed that Ruhaama constituency and Ntungamo district in general had greatly transformed due to leaders that have worked well with government.

He said: “Avoid making grave mistakes by voting against our official flag bearer”.

While flagging off field campaign teams, Dr. Omona challenged them to seek everybody’s support for the NRM flag bearer.

“Let’s reach out to every voter including those in the opposition and ask for their support”. Dr. Omona advised the visibly excited party leaders.

The Electoral Commission nominated four candidates and NRM’s Moses Kahima shall compete against three other independents in the by-election slated for January 11, 2018.
