President Yoweri Museveni through his lawyer Edwin Karugire has picked National Resistance Movement (NRM) nomination forms for the position of party chairman and Presidential flag bearer.
According to NRM Electoral Commission Dr. Tanga Odoi, Museveni paid Shs20 million for both positions. Odoi also revealed that John Ssimbwa picked nomination forms for the party chairmanship.
In February last year, NRM under their national association of districts and lower local government councils endorsed President Museveni as the sole party candidate in the 2021 presidential elections. The move was challenged by 11 NRM MPs in court.
However, earlier this month, the Constitutional court threw out the petition challenging Museveni’s sole candidature.
