NRM CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY AT ST. LEO'S COLLEGE GROUNDS

Today, Tuesday 26th January 2016, Uganda celebrates 30 years rule of the NRM government under leadership of President Museveni. This day also commemorates the NRA/NRM Liberation day.

Today’s national celebrations are taking place at St. Leo’s college grounds in Fort Portal under the theme; “30 Years of NRM's Committed Stewardship: A Remarkable Legacy for Uganda.”

On January 25, 1986, the National Resistance Army (NRA), under the wing of the political National Resistance Movement (NRM), ousted a government that represented years of corruption, civil rights offenses, and alleged voter fraud.

The movement, led by Yoweri Museveni, promised “a fundamental change in the politics” of Uganda. The country now commemorates the event every year as NRM Liberation Day, though not without its detractors.

It’s against this background that Ugandans are criticizing the failure by government to realize the 10 points program set by President Museveni in 1986.

Today, according to a number of Ugandans, the levels of corruption are higher than pre-1986.

They feel the NRM’s promises of “fundamental change” seem to have been lost in recent years.
