The young, energetic and powerful icon in President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s political mobilisation space is all that describes Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo Uzeiye. Namyalo is a very honest and respectful Muslim lady in the National Resistance Movement (NRM) circles.

The open-minded Chief Muzzukulu is an exemplary leader who is willing to listen to anything as long as it adds value to the NRM National Chairman, her party, and her country.

Because of her character, Namyalo was appointed to head the Office of the NRM National Chairman (ONC), and National Coordinator Bazzukulu Ba Museveni, a position that she fits in well.

Her character is full of honesty, respectful, approachable and reachable when they need her is what makes her a whole lady. This is a character the Wanainchi (people) love to associate with, and there is nothing that attracts support from them as that, not even money as many people think!

These virtues are rare among some cadres of her status not only in the ruling party NRM but also in the Opposition.

NRM party has had senior cadres who go to villages to deliver the President’s message, or sometimes to look for their own support, and instead braggingly flash their titles in the peoples’ faces from whom they expect votes and many times speak with excessive pride to them, before speeding off in their big 4×4 vehicles leaving villagers in smokes of dust. In order to truly engage at the grassroots level, you have to stay connected to and have a presence among, the people you serve.

To Namyalo a presence doesn’t mean a carefully orchestrated public event with the press invited, rather, it means leaving your honourable titles aside and interacting with the people you serve where they’re comfortable.

“It’s always important to listen carefully to what people have to say and not to be dismissive,” she stresses.

This is the case with Hajjat Namyalo, who pays attention to every person, picks up everyone’s call, and if busy, returns missed calls.

“Whether it’s in business, politics or any other field, the result of losing touch with the man (or woman) in the village usually leads to blind spots in the decision-making process, with leaders often caught off guard by the consequences of, as well as the reactions to, the decisions they make,” she adds.

But who is Hadijah Namyalo Uzeiye?

The National Coordinator Bazzukulu Ba Museveni is a successful farmer, who inspires young people every day to mint money from farming.

She’s emotionally intelligent, patient and calm under pressure, and she sees no point in overreacting or allowing her emotions to dictate her words or actions.

The ability to remain calm is undoubtedly one of the most notable traits of leaders with solid character.

To become great leaders ourselves, we must train ourselves to hold and express this same type of self-possession.

In the Changemaker, published by ForbesBooks, Australian author and former Mayor of Augusta, Deke Copenhaver explains that there is a need for more leaders who are not afraid to do something different in the service of a good cause, just like Hajjat Namyalo is doing at ONC.
“Changemakers are not perfect; they’re not saints,” Copenhaver writes. “They’re just people like you and me who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.
Hajjat Namyalo’s character alone is a strong mobilization tool for the NRM, and with her, the President and the NRM will score highly in the next national elections.
