The NRM vice chairman for Eastern Uganda, Capt Mike Mukula has said that Soroti is safer in the hands of the ruling party candidate, Herbert Ariko than any other candidate.
The role of the NRM is to mobilise the people of Soroti City into the money economy. The only person capable of doing that is Herbert Ariko. In fact, Soroti City East is safe when it is in the hands of NRM and Ariko,” Mukula said.
The former Soroti MP was campaigning for Herbert Ariko ahead of the forthcoming Soroti City East by-election.
He insisted that it would only make sense if voters chose the NRM candidate.
Speaking during the same campaigns, Ariko said he is the only person to ensure the gap between the central government and the constituency is closed in terms of service delivery.
“Soroti City requires a parliamentarian with strong lobbying skills who can make sure the government completely implements the city’s budget. The party in power is NRM.
