Registrars employed by the National Unity Platform (NUP) in Uganda to help in the registration and membership card distribution, have threatened to embark on a strike, citing non-payment of facilitation for their services.

The officers, tasked with registering individuals for party membership at a nominal fee of UGX 1000 per person, are expressing grievances over the lack of compensation for their transport and lunch expenses.

The dispute has escalated to the point where the registration officers are reportedly threatening to halt the registration process altogether unless their concerns are addressed.

Frustrated by the apparent disregard for their financial well-being, the officers have resorted to selling party cards directly to the public, with prices ranging from 20,000 to 50,000 Uganda shillings.

This unauthorized sale of party cards at inflated prices is allegedly aimed at recuperating the expenses incurred by the registration officers, who claim to have been left unsupported by the party leadership.

The NUP’s National Mobilizer, Fred Nyanzi notes that, the situation not only jeopardizes the integrity of the registration process but also raises questions about the financial management and commitment to fair compensation within the NUP.

Efforts to reach out to the NUP Spokesperson for comment on the matter have been unsuccessful thus far. Meanwhile, the dispute remains unresolved, casting a shadow over the party’s registration drive and highlighting broader issues of accountability and transparency within Uganda’s biggest opposition political party National Unity Platform (NUP).
