Hon. Beatrice Anywar, the State Minister for Environment also commonly known as “Mama Mabira” (If the Title still befits) has announced that she will contest for the position of Member representing Kitgum Municipality Constituency but this time on an Independent ticket and not on the National Resistance Movement Ticket as many might have expected.
In her address to the press, the Hon. Beatrice Anywar alleges that the NRM, a party she has served diligently and sacrificed so much for has now turned against her.
It was her contention that she is first of all disappointed in the President, H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who has repeatedly ignored and refused to pick up her calls. The former Forum For Democratic Change superwoman further stated that as if that was not enough, the NRM has fronted another candidate against her yet she was assured of getting the Party’s full support.
For these reasons, Beatrice Anywar says that it is indeed nothing but right for her to stand as an Independent and not an NRM flag bearer.
