Luuka, (UG):- The Deputy Secretary General of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party Rt. Hon. Rose Namayanja Nsereko has rallied Luuka district and Busoga as a whole to embrace every government program and also commended Luuka district for the good performance in the Parish Development Model (PDM) programme.

“Embrace PDM and other programmes of the government and it has never happened in any African country where the government can take money up to the grassroots. The shs1m can be a good startup for anyone because it targets the 39% Ugandans who are not in the money economy,” Hon Namayanja said.

The Deputy SG was Saturday, June 1, presiding over the fundraising for the construction of Busalamu Seventh Day Adventist Church at Butondolo village, Busalamu town council in Luuka district where she donated shs2m and 100 bags of cement to support the work of God.

Hon Namayanja also called upon people to avoid corruption tendencies in government programmes by following the right procedures to get the money. “There is a percentage for women, youths and others so kindly use that percentage and be the primary monitors of this programme. If you are to get shs1m, then why do you sign for a million and they give you less?” She questioned.

Ms Namayanja who was on the invitation of the head protocol department at NRM national secretariat Kyambogo and also Luuka South MP hopeful Mr. Don Vincent Bwana, urged parents to educate their children and avoid involving them in child labour like sugarcane cutting. She says it is the only gift any parent can give to a child.

“I call upon all parents to educate your children because it is the only wealth you can give to your child. What you leave with children doesn’t matter but what you put in them is what makes sense and please don’t engage these children in cutting sugarcane for money,” Hon Namayanja said before sharing her life story on how she toiled from a poor background.

Mr Don Bwana commended Hon Namayanja for honoring his invitation to be part of the church fundraising and he was pleased with the government programmes in the district and commended her and other leaders for ensuring that the tarmacking of Walugogo-Luuka-Kamuli road urns to reality.

“One day you sent us in the field and in less than three months, we established that our road is going to be tarmacked. Rt. Hon by July this year, the road works of tarmacking will take shape on this road from Walugogo and I appreciate you and the NRM CEC members for deciding well for Luuka district,” Mr. Bwana said.

At the function where money close to shs5m was raised, a number of officials attended among others; Counsel Ntwatwa Jackson, former MP contestant for Nakifuma in Mukono district, NRD registrar Luuka district Mr. Kikuuli Nelson, leaders from the Adventist church and Luuka Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Mr. Katende Ronald Kinene.

RDC Katende reported to Rt. Hon Namayanja about the good performance of the PDM programme in the district after disbursing over shs6.88b in 64 SACCOs and an APP that will monitor PDM funds across the country was launched and piloted in the district and this attracted the ISO team led by the director general.

He undoubtedly confirmed that the Walugogo-Luuka-Kamuli road will be worked on with tarmac, saying the contractors who are going to work on it have a good track record after working on one of the good roads in the country.

“We have some challenges and one of them is the road, but the good news which cannot be doubted is that the road will be tarmacked, I very well know the contractors who were given the work and I can testify after working on Nyendo-Mukakata road in Masaka, which is one of the good roads Uganda has done,” Mr Katende said.
