Serere: The National Resistance Movement – NRM Party Structure leaders in Serere County have insisted that they will not support or campaign for the NRM flag bearer Philip Oucor but rather support the son of late Serere County MP Patrick Okabe.


The leaders made the decision while meeting the NRM Party Electoral Commission Chairperson Tanga Odoi on Monday evening in Serere District headquarters.


The leaders accused Oucor, who was also present during the stakeholders meeting, for undermining the NRM structures.


Charles Erimu the Chairperson Atiira Sub County in a meeting said that the chairpersons of the structures are not willing to support NRM flag bearer a move that was backed by all structure chairpersons present.


“We the structure leaders of NRM disagree with any position of the party as long as it’s not the son of Late Okabe, Emmanuel Omoding. The problem is the way Mr. Oucor came to the politics of Serere it was not in the right way,” Erimu said


Stephen Otage, the Chairperson Kateta Sub County, asked Odoi to listen to the plea of the people of Serere and decide on their favour.


He noted that the position of the structure still stands.


“We have told him (Odoi) our position and the one of the NRM voters, much has he has insisted that the party has a flag bearer but the position of structures is we are rallying behind Omoding, if we fail to agree we shall have no option but to support the son of the late.”


Mr. Odoi had come to Serere to meet with structure leaders on how they can support the NRM candidate Philip Oucor.


But while speaking to the media after the meeting, Odoi called for continued dialogue between the two warring camps in Serere.


“I want us to have dialogue and we must respect the opinions of everybody including the current flag bearer. I want to emphasize that we shall not bend the constitution, we can only change if there is need,” Odoi said.


Philip Oucor on the other hand said that his position is the position of the party believes that NRM will not accept to rape its constitution in favor of the late Okabe’s son.
