Information minister Rose Namayanja Nsereko is all the rage these days.
After President Museveni appointed her to head a six-man team tasked to evaluate implementation of the NRM Manifesto and ensure that voters’ needs are addressed before it is too late, the minster’s appeal has gone up. This is the same minister who lost an acrimonious election to former minister Ms Dorothy Hyuha in the race to become deputy secretary general of the ruling NRM party. She garnered 3,039 votes against Hyuha’s 3,754.
Some NRM MPs are now worried that the Namayanja committee could file damaging reports to the President, naming the MPs who did not sell the sole candidature project and others who have failed to account for the funds.

President Museveni last week appointed Ms Namayanja to head a six-member team to popularise government programmes. The team comprising of Members of Parliament and selected ministers started work on Monday. They are expected to oversee the implementation of the NRM Manifesto (2011-16), a policy document containing the promises President Museveni made to Ugandans ahead of the 2011 elections.
