Delegates of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party, who are meeting at Namboole,  Saturday booed their  Secretary General, Ms Kasule Lumumba forcing her to cut shot her speech.

Ms Lumumba was accused of allegedly pocketing money that was meant to facilitate delegates at their meeting in Namboole.
