As the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) gears up for a nationwide membership verification exercise, the Office of the National Chairman (ONC) has issued a stern warning to coordinators against engaging with corrupt government officials. Scheduled to commence from Wednesday, March 13th to Sunday, March 17th, 2024, the exercise aims to validate existing members, register new ones, and weed out non-existent members from the party’s ranks.

Addressing coordinators at a meeting in Kyambogo on Monday, March 11th, Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo, the Senior Political Advisor and head of the ONC, praised the efforts of coordinators in mobilizing support for the party. However, she cautioned them against any involvement with corrupt government officials, emphasizing the importance of integrity in the registration process.

Ahead of the exercise, coordinators have been tasked with recruiting at least 10 new members from every village, with a target of 720,000 new supporters nationwide. The registration process will require members to visit designated NRM offices or locations, where their details will be verified and updated in the NRM Yellow Book.

Following registration, the new register will be displayed in all 72,000 villages nationwide, with verification sessions scheduled for March 17th. Subsequently, expressions of interest and nominations for party structures at various levels will be solicited, followed by campaign activities.

The culmination of the exercise will see the compilation of registers at municipal, city division, district, and city levels, with final results forwarded to the party secretariat.

The nationwide membership verification exercise holds significant importance for the NRM as it prepares for internal elections and the forthcoming 2026 general elections. With a focus on integrity and transparency, the party aims to strengthen its base and ensure the legitimacy of its membership ahead of crucial political events.
