Jinja municipality NRM chairman in trouble for supporting Mwiru

The ruling NRM party threatens disciplinary action against the party’s chairperson in Jinja Municipality Julius Zziwa for supporting the opposition candidate in the forthcoming Jinja municipality parliamentary by elections.

The Electoral Commission has set 15th March 2018 the day for the Jinja East by election after court threw out NRM’s Nathan Igeme Nabeta who was found guilty of election malpractice

The NRM Party is fronting Nabeta for the position but the party’s leader in the area has vowed to back FDC’s Paul Mwiru

NRM’s secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba has intervened noting that    Zziwa’s conduct is against the party’s principles

She says Zziwa faces serious penalties among them dismissal from the party
