NRM Party Faces Low Turnout for Registration Update in Kikuube

Uncategorized

The National Resistance Movement (NRM) party in Kikuube district, Uganda, is facing a challenge with their ongoing member registration update exercise. Here's a breakdown of the situation:

  • Low Participation: Despite Bunyoro region's history of strong NRM support, there's a low turnout for the update process.
  • Reason for Low Turnout: The update coincides with the planting season, keeping people busy with their farms. Many prioritize planting due to the recent rains and unpredictable weather patterns.
  • Transportation Request: Some party members, like Tusime Mary, a registrar, report people requesting transport to registration points as they are unwilling to leave their farms.
  • Extension Appeal: Bunyoro region NRM mobilizer, Michael Christopher Ayeranga, is appealing for a one-week extension due to the low participation during planting season.
  • Concerns about Political Bias: Buhaguzi East legislator, Asera Stephen, raises concerns about registrars potentially removing names of those who don't support certain politicians within the party. He emphasizes the need for neutrality in the registration process.
  • Importance of Registration: District party leaders are encouraging participation to avoid issues faced during previous NRM primaries, where people were denied voting due to missing names in the register.

Overall, the NRM party in Kikuube needs to address the low turnout for registration updates. Balancing the update process with the crucial planting season and ensuring a neutral registration procedure is key to a successful exercise.
