Kampala, Uganda: Generation Seven, G7 an NRM leaning political pressure has today appointed Steven Mukasa as its National Coordinator.
This development came after 28th/February/2023 when the former coordinator Simon Otukol Ochom resigned from the position to go on with his Master’s Degree studies.
According to Generation Seven Constitution, when the reigning National Coordinator resigns or is unable to continue, it’s the Vice to takeover the position but in this case the Vice was unable at the moment. This prompted them to suggest names and Steven Mukasa went through unopposed.
However, Steven Mukasa has been serving as Spokesperson of the group and his position will now be taken by the Deputy Mobilizer in Charge of Central Region Asiimwe John a.k.a Somali.
In his remarks, Steven noted that the G7 is rooted within the seven great achievements of the NRM Government that include; education, health, industrialization, infrastructure development, democracy, wealth creation and others.
“Our structures are all over the country, in 4 regions, 19 sub regions, all districts up to village level and here we encourage the youths to first be creative, have at least a source of income before they can join the movement because we mind about welfare first”. Said Steven.
He mentioned that current they have over 120 youths SACCOs across the country registered in the name of G7 and are looking forward to having more like 10 per districts in order to empower all the youths before talking politics.
“These are involved in many activities like metal fabrications, brick-laying, poultry rearing, farming and others”. He informed.
He as well called upon the youths not to despise government programmes like Parish Development Model and others because they are geared towards developing all Ugandans.
This pressure group is intentioned to popularize NRM government programmes amongst Ugandans as well conversing support for NRM Chairman for presidency of Uganda during presidential campaign times.
