The National Resistance Movement (NRM) has organised a three-day ideological work camp aimed at orienting youths into becoming responsible future leaders in their communities and the nation at large.

On Tuesday, December 5, 2023, thousands of youth leaders from greater Masaka districts arrived at St. Charles Lwanga Kasasa Senior Secondary in Kalungu district to attend a camp organised by the ruling party secretariat.

According to Rosemary Nansubuga Seninde, the NRM director of mobilisation, the programme will provide the youth with all-round knowledge in using leadership to address societal problems such as poverty, ignorance, and disease.

“We seek to empower our aspiring leaders with ideological orientation, a positive mindset, and leadership skills in order to enable them to participate in productive politics and the social-economic transformation of the country through supporting government programmes,” Seninde said.

Seninde claimed that occasionally, rather than following their own wishes, young people follow incorrect advice from particular groups, which leads to unfavourable attitudes and perceptions of the government.

She invited all youth leaders from all religious, cultural, and political institutions in Kalungu, Bukomansimbi, Masaka districts, and Masaka city to participate.

The retreat, which begins today, Wednesday, December 6, will conclude on Friday, December 8, 2023.

Emmanuel Dombo, director of communication at the NRM Secretariat, reiterated that the youth retreat will empower young people to understand their responsibilities and provide a platform for them to exchange ideas on government programmes such as the Parish Development Model and other wealth creation projects in their communities.

He committed that the facilitators would take responsibility for teaching, training, and demonstrating what they needed to do to benefit from the government.
