A week after deliberating on a series of issues including implementation of government programs as well as endorsing President Yoweri Museveni to again stand in the 2021 Presidential elections, the NRM Caucus Retreat has come to a close.
The retreat was climaxed on Tuesday at Ngoma government ranch in Nakaseke district and was officially closed by the NRM National Chairman, President Museveni.
In his speech, he urged the NRM legislators to place all their efforts on eradicating poverty among Ugandans. He for the second time thanked the NRM legislators for having confidence in him to continue leading the party, assuring them “some very important things will happen”.
At the end of the retreat, the caucus adopted the resolution reached by the top organ, CEC during its recent retreat at Chobe Safari Lodge, to allow for queueing up during NRM internal elections and Parliamentary primaries.
The NRM Chief Whip, Ruth Nankabirwa also introduced some 23 MPs whom she said she had invited to the retreat and that they had “come back home”. The MPs included former FDC strong woman and Kitgum municipality MP, Beatrice Anywar (Mama Mabira).
