YYM: Inside the new NRM Youth initiative rallying behind Museveni for 2026

Kampala, (UG): The National Youth Council of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) have launched a mobilization campaign aimed at canvassing for support for President Yoweri Museveni, the NRM National chairman ahead of the forthcoming 2026 general elections.

The initiative, code-named ‘Yellow Youth Movement (YYM)’ was launched on Saturday, February 24, by the NRM National Youth Council chairperson Jacob Eyeru who said it is aimed at revitalizing the life and the role of youth in the NRM party ahead of the next polls.

Eyeru, speaking to hundreds of youths who gathered at the NRM Secretariat in Kampala said the youth mobilization will focus on four areas; promoting quality and compulsory free education for all the children of Uganda, ensuring health care for all Ugandans and promoting mass vocational skilling of youths.

“We believe these issues, with the four sectors of wealth creation and job creation that our chairman emphasises, are the root of a sustainable development for the youth of Uganda,” Eyeru said.

“As YYM initiative, we shall mobilize all the youth from all the corners of Uganda, for people to join the NRM party for steady progress,” he added.

The NRM Youth boss explained that the YYM shall carry out other activities with guidance from the secretariat, warning youth from getting involved in anything that is not for the NRM party unless sanctioned by President Museveni.

“There are opposition political parties in their many groups, you hear Katonga group, Najjanankumbi group, you hear others, I hear NUP, those are fighting us, but they don’t have the necessary grassroots and leadership expertise like the old man with the hat,” he emphasized.

YYM adds to the many initiatives which, from last year, have come up to support the candidature of the veteran president in 2026, including the #TovaKuMain campaign of the Office of the National Chairman (ONC) headed by Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo.
