The National Resistance Movement-NRM party has undertaken an audit on the performance of the party in last month’s general elections.
Results from last month’s general election indicate that the NRM performed poorly in the Presidential and Parliamentary polls in the central region. Many of the incumbent MPs including ministers were defeated by rivals from the opposition.
High ranking party members attributed their loss to tribalism, religious sectarianism, and malicious propaganda allegedly spread by opposition candidates in connivance with some religious leaders and elements within Buganda Kingdom establishment.
Godfrey Kiwanda Ssuubi, the NRM Vice Chairperson in charge of Buganda says they have started moving out to interact with all their flag bearers with intentions of establishing the real factors that haunted the party in the elections.
He reveals that the party has hired an independent consultant to help them conduct an independent assessment of the issues that affected the party other than relying on mere speculations and desperate emotions.
Kiwanda who was addressing former NRM flag bearers for parliamentary and LCV seats from the greater Masaka sub-region noted that they have designed a questionnaire which they are using to seek for honest opinions from the leaders regarding the party’s performance.
