SOROTI: The President of the Republic of Uganda, also the National Chairman of the NRM, H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, will today {Monday} boost the Soroti City East campaigns as he canvasses support for the NRM flag bearer, Hon Herbert Edmund Ariko.

This has been announced by the NRM Vice Chairman for the Eastern Region, Capt. Mike Mukula while addressing the press at his country home in Soroti City.

“President Museveni will be today in Soroti to campaign for Ariko and he will deliver and unpackage the manifesto not only for Soroti as a city but the country at large,” Capt Mukula said.

According to the draft program, the National Chairman will address two scientific meetings, starting with one from Madera ward and ending with one at Moruapesur Primary School playground.

Soroti City East has 13 wards with 84 cells and 62 polling stations.

Capt. Mukula noted that the party is more than prepared to mobilize the populace to cast their ballots because of the broad and steadfast base of support that it enjoys in the constituency.
