DP veterans honoured

Democratic Party (DP) adherents in Uganda and the Diaspora under the umbrella body, Justice Aancement Democrats of Uganda (JADEMU) in pursuit of their core values of justice and dignity, have started honoring outstanding performing party veterans.
Led by the programmes coordinator Mr kizito Johnson who also doubles as the deputy secretary general of UYD, the group on Friday paid a courtesy visit to Mr Michael Kaggwa a former leader for Democratic Party Mobiliser Group in his home in Mpererwe.
Mr Kizito, who was accompanied by Conservative Party members Mr Daus Kyeyune and Mr Edris Mpagi said the visit was intended to re affirm the JADEMU commitment
towards honoring distinguished men and women who have served “this nation immeasurable.”

In his active days, Mr Kaggwa was charged with mobilizing DP members to come back
from the NRM joint government to re build DP as one family.
“This visit is part of the series of planned activities to build brotherhood and consolidate solidarity among the heroic men and women of this land who have not only diligently served the Democratic Party but also the country at large” said Kizito.
The purpose of the visit was to embrace all the old people who worked for the party during early days.
“These are the people who should be given the Museveni’s Nalubale medals and a few others” said Mr Kyeyune.

Mr Kaggwa is one of the people who aised former DP leader, Mr Kawanga Ssemogerere to return to the party and regain power. He is also one of the people who contributed to the in writing Muno and Munansi news papers during the 1960s.
Among other people to be honored are former DP president Mr Kawanga Ssemogerere, former Buganda Lukiiko member Israel Mayengo, former DP Vice president Zachary Olum and former Vice president Gilbert Bukenya, among others.
According to Mr Mulinda Clement the JADEMU leader UK chapter, the body was formed 20 years ago by DP adherents in the Diaspora, with feeling that there are many people that have offered great service to this country yet their recognition does not mirror their legacy.
