The National Resistance Movement will hold an eight day retreat for party’s 10th parliament legislators; Justine Kasule Lumumba, the party Secretary General revealed yesterday.
Lumumba said the retreat which will take place at the National Leadership Institute, (NALI) Kyankwanzi, from Saturday, March 12th to 20th, 2016 will serve as a “forum to orient MPs of the NRM on the main Parliamentary tasks at hand.”
She said the retreat will help legislators to appreciate the party ideology, help build political and organizational unity amongst the members, enable the new leaders appreciate their role in the socio-economic transformation of our country, enable the NRM MPs elect to better appreciate the party manifesto and how to fulfil it through Parliament and enable the newly elected members understand the A-Z of a multi-party parliament and the role of the NRM Parliamentary Caucus.
NRM won more 70% of parliamentary seats.
Lumumba also congratulated “Ugandans for having gone through general elections, and in a special way, thank you for voting for our (NRM) presidential candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni with 60.62%.”
