I held talks with People Power, Anite confirms

Investment Minister Evelyn Anite declined requests from Lina Zedriga to join opposition National Unity Platform.

Anite on Wednesday told journalists at Parliament that Zedriga approached her when she had lost NRM primary election to Charles Ayume.

Both Anite and Zedriga hail from West Nile.

A section of Members of Parliament who lost in the recently concluded National Resistance Movement (NRM) primaries have formed a group- NRM Reorganisation Team to reconcile aggrieved members with ruling party.

The group is led by Anite who said that they are still strong supporters of their party and they are willing to mobilise for President Yoweri Museveni in the forthcoming general elections despite losing in party primaries.

She said they also want to ensure that all candidates who lost in the party primaries do not join other political parties.

Anite revealed that she has been approached to join Bobi Wine’s National Unity Platform (NUP) but she turned down the offer.

“Lina Zedriga the Vice President of NUP has reached out to me to join NUP but I have made it clear to her that I will continue working for NRM. There’s no other party in principle that can be compared to NRM,” Anite said.
