Focus on developing Kampala, not fighting Museveni- NRM's Dombo tells Lukwago

Emmanuel Dombo, the Director of Communication, Publicity for the National Resistance Movement (NRM), has criticised Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago for neglecting the development of Kampala City.

During an appearance on NBS Morning Breeze on Wednesday morning, Dombo discussed the progress of Ugandans and the challenges faced by political leaders in Kampala.

Dombo's statements shed light on the perceived neglect of crucial responsibilities by the city's political figures, including Lukwago.

According to Dombo, while Ugandans are making progress in various aspects, the focus on President Museveni seems to overshadow this development.

"While Ugandans are progressing, they are talking about Museveni. My friend Lukwago should have been in Munyonyo interacting with leaders from other cities on how to improve Kampala. Instead, he was planting bananas on the road he promised people," he said.

The position of Lord Mayor carries significant responsibilities, including presiding over all meetings of the Authority, performing ceremonial and civic functions, hosting foreign and local dignitaries, and leading the development of strategies and programs for the capital city's progress.

Dombo acknowledged the NRM's loss in several areas in the central region and attributed it to a combination of false propaganda and the heavy-handedness of certain security operators within the government.

"The second reason is the heavy-handedness of some security operators in the government, but we will apologize and reconcile," he said.

Highlighting the challenges in the political landscape, Dombo emphasized the role of vested interests among national officials, suggesting that their failure to act appropriately fuels contention within the system.

"As long as you have national officials with vested interests who fail to do the right thing, contention will always be present," he said.

Dombo expressed concerns about the media's influence on individuals, particularly in terms of celebrity culture. He argued that when people strive for media recognition and public attention, they may lose sight of the importance of collaboration and working together as human beings.

Lukwago is one of the leaders who have been urging citizens to demonstrate the impact of the road crisis, and this movement is gaining traction on social media platforms, with individuals sharing photos and stories of the difficulties they face daily due to poorly maintained roads.

The campaign aims to draw attention to the urgent need for infrastructure improvements and accountability from the government.

As citizens rally around the call for better roads and accountability, the government faces mounting pressure to address the longstanding issue that not only affects daily life but has also become a symbol of systemic neglect.

The deteriorating state of Uganda's roads has been a longstanding concern for citizens, impacting daily life and economic activities.
