NRM bosses in Soroti clash over bicycle distribution

The NRM Chairperson, President Museveni on August 2020 launched the Yellow Bicycles for the NRM village Chairpersons in all the 68,700 villages.

Soroti, Uganda | URN | The National Resistance Movement [NRM] party officials in Soroti district have clashed over the distribution of bicycles. The Teso Region NRM mobiliser, Teddy Acam accuses Charles Elasu, the Soroti District NRM Chairperson distributing the bicycles secretly without informing her.  

Acam says being the NRM regional political mobiliser she should have been involved in the bicycle distribution exercise from the onset. She faults Elasu for undermining her efforts in the NRM leadership for his selfish interest. 

According to Acam, she should have been the one to give out the bicycles to the NRM village chairpersons since she was the one who mobilised them.

Elasu has brushed off Acam’s accusations, saying there was need to invite her, adding that she has done nothing as far as the party grassroots structures are concerned.
