Leaders agree to reduce pressure on First Lady

Leaders in Ruhaama County have agreed to reduce the pressure they have been piling on area MP Janet Museveni over services delivery.
A section of leaders through a group, Eishazi rya Ruhaama, had been going around the constituency highlighting gaps in the service delivery in which leaders, especially Ms Museveni, had not addressed.
Supporters of Ms Museveni, who is also First Lady, last week organised a meeting at Ruhaama Sub-county headquarters and asked members of the Eishazi to disband it.
While the residents appreciated the group for their role in demanding for improved services, they blamed them for using strong words and not being considerate of Ms Museveni’s status.
Mr Joseph Mukasa, the Katojo parish councillor, said, “The demands are genuine and the leaders make them so often. She must have heard them, so they need to stop.”
They members agreed to stop the pressure on the Ms Museveni, but said they would resume if the demands of the constituents were not met as she promised in an earlier meeting.
Ruhaama Sub-county chairperson and Eishazi coordinator Tom Rwomushana, said they demand for the services from Ms Museveni in her capacity as the area MP. “I have nothing I want from Ms Museveni. I am talking because I want her to serve you,” he said.
