The NRM Secretary General, Rt. Hon. Richard Todwong has today welcomed Ms Asiimwe Joan to the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party

Asiimwe is a former member of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Party who lost trust in the party's ideologies.

In the company of Ms Asiimwe was Buyaga West constituency MP Hon. Barnabas Tinkasimire and other local leaders from Kitagwenda and Kamwenge districts.

Presiding over the event at the party offices at Plot 10, Kyadondo Road in Nakasero Kampala, the Secretary-General handed over the NRM constitution, manifesto, and branded shirts as he officially welcomed her to the ruling NRM.

He encouraged her to read and understand the party’s core principles.

“I congratulate you on this wise move to join the NRM. The beauty of our party is we galvanize our energies in areas that affect the masses. We speak about the things that affect our masses. We don’t concentrate on the things that divide our people,” Todwong said.

“I ask you to read and understand our ideology and I encourage you to participate in the activities of our party,” he added.

While remarking Ms. Asiimwe revealed that she is joining NRM because it holds the future for both the young and old generation.

“I firmly believe in the principles, values and focus that the NRM upholds and I am ready to contribute to the betterment of our country through meaningful political participation,” she said.

“I left FDC because of loss of direction and purpose from the party.” She added.
