NRM Secretary General Lumumba Pleads With Museveni To Intervene In Internal Conflicts

BY: Eyalama In Politics On

NRM Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has called upon the party chairleader President Yoweri Museveni to intervene in internal conflict that has run long in between her and the party’s Electoral Commission chairperson Dr Tanga Odoi.

Lumumba said the rift between Odoi and herself has affected her effectiveness as the party’s most senior technocrat.

Lumumba said she is no longer able to do party work effectively.

Addressing the press at the party’s headquarters,  Lumumba revealed that the bickering between Odoi and herself has lasted over three years now.

She said the row began almost as soon as they assumed office after former NRM SG Amama Mbabazi was forced out.

Mbabazi was forced to relinquish his position after he decided to contest for the leadership of the NRM party and later presidency of the country in the 2016 national elections.

Now Lumumba said the bickering between the NRM heavyweights is starting to affect grassroots members too.

Lumumba said that she has put up with a lot of abuse from Dr Odoi while attempting to carry out party work.

She called upon party chairman to intervene and restore calm and order in the organisation.

Lumumba claimed that Odoi’s insubordinate actions have encouraged even party members to sometimes act against the interests of the party.
