A group of radio phone callers in Lango under their umbrella of Lango NRM phone callers Association have given President Museveni one week ultimatum to fulfill his pending pledges.
The group is demanding for shillings 30M and iron sheets that were pledged to them by President Museveni.
“We did not beg M7 to give us but it was him we pledged to give us and now we want him to fulfil. We have some people at State House around M7 who have been blocking us from following our package from M7,”Patrick Okwir Kampala the group’s chairperson said.
Such members are the ones often calling major radio stations during morning talk back shows usually hosted in the morning.
They claimed to have been mobilising for the party support and countering opposition’s group.
Lira district NRM party authority has branded a group some cadres calling themselves as Lango NRM Phone Callers Association as ‘Skimmers’ seeking for cheap money.
“There is free exit, and entrance, there is not NRM phone callers in our structure, they should stop using the name of the party and the party president, they are just looking for cheap money which is not there in the NRM and I want to warn them to stop insulting the party president and the NRM,” Jacob Ocen Lira district NRM chairman said.
The group with 64 members and headed by Patrick Okwir aka Okwir Kampala, a prominent NRM cadre in Lira on Sunday gave President Museveni two weeks to fulfill his pledge.
