Alupo boosts NRM campaigns Bukimbiri County

As Bukimbiri county prepares to go to the polls, Vice President Jessica Alupo has rallied voters to maintain their strategic partnership with NRM by voting the NRM flag bearer Eddie Kwizera.

The Vice President was in Kisoro to rally support for the NRM party in general and the NRM flag bearer in particular.

Curved out of Bufumbira East and Bufumbira North, the race has drawn three candidates- Eddie Kwizera Wa Gahungu, the NRM flag bearer, Owebeyi James, the FDC candidate and Asagariyo Turyagyenda the independent candidate.

Addressing voters at Kisharu Primary School in Kasharara village, Alupo assured the people of peace and security a fundamental prerequisite for social economic transformation. NRM also pledged to improve the road Infrastructure in the area in a planned way. Government is planning to address the water scarcity challenge by bringing piped water to the constituency,” Alupo said, adding that she was under instructions from the President to inform locals of Bukimbiri that government is committed to its policy of constructing seed secondary schools in every sub county to improve access to education.

She appealed to parents to send all children to school and also ensure that they finish the education cycle.
Alupo asked the people of Bukimbiri county to vote for the Kwizera to ensure proper service delivery. The vice President officially handed over the NRM flag to Kwizera on behalf of H.E president YKMuseveni who is the chairman of NRM party.

Kwizera addressed three rallies, in Kasharara, Nyamatsinda and Rubuguri town Council on the last day of open campaigns, as the candidates closed the last lap that will see the winner join Parliament.

Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja asked the people of Bukimbiri to maintain the existing partnership with the Movement Government by voting the party flagbearer Kwizera.

The NRM Secretary General Richard Todwong told voters that Eddie Kwizera is the only flag bearer for the Movement party and asked the people to overwhelmingly vote for him come Thursday this week.

The final campaigns were also graced by Dr. Chris Baryomunsi the Minister of Information and National Guidance-also NRM Vice chairperson Western Region, David Bahati State Minister for Trade and several members of Parliament.

Beyond the campaigns, Kisoro is a beautiful gem, that has taken a rightful place as a tourism hotspot.

The drive to Kisoro town is marked by a smooth beautiful tarmac whose curves, meanders and elegant corners attract snail pace drive, surrounded by the steps of the rocky hills, to the low land where thousands of people have trecked in at the Nyakabande refugee transit camp searching for peace and a new lease of life.

This centre, is only symbolic of the hospitality of the Ugandan people in understated facts; as one of the biggest refugee hosts in the world.

Kisoro is also home to several lakes-Mutanda,Mulehe and Kayumbu.

Bukimbiri county like the rest of Kisoro is hilly, with Rusave,Rugendabari hill Nyamihayaga, and other hills jostling for the attention of a leader who is patriotic enough to tackle the issues, amongst which are environmental degradation, education, health, road network and mindset change.

The area is struggling to restore the environment for the generations that will come after our great grandchildren. These, and other issues will be the focus of the leader in Parliament.

Eddie Kwizera was hailed by the people as as having been instrumental in opening up community roads. “These roads were impassable, but Kwizera lobbied and worked to have them opened. We must vote him back”, one of the people on the trail remarked.

Locals go to the polls on Thursday,August 11, 2022.
