Dr. Miria Matembe Encourages Mp Rita Atukwasa To Have An Independent Mind

Dr. Miria Matembe, the former minister of Ethics and Integrity has encouraged newly sworn in Mbarara Woman Mp to be independent. Hon Rita Atukwasa won as an independent after NRM dropped her for Bonnie Kashaija. During the primaries, Bonnie and Rita were contesting for the same sit which Rita won. Unfortunately, NRM later dropped her and fronted Bonnie instead.

Amazingly, Rita who decided to stand as an independent, won elections on the 14th January. Dr. Maria Matembe encouraged her saying there is a reason she came as an independent.

“Grab the women’s agenda and run with it. Be courageous and independent .You planned to contest in the NRM but God wanted you to come as an independent. Follow that and work in that direction.”

Matembe while speaking also encouraged her to follow the agenda of the people.

“Always be guided by the women agenda throughout your term of office. Follow the agenda of the people and not necessarily the colour(NRM ideas).”

According to Miria, Rita has the best role models to learn from. Namely; Winnie Byanyima and Matembe herself who are former representatives of Mbarara. Matembe confessed her hope in Rita as their representative of Mbarara.

“I bless you to follow into our footsteps but you know you have a big challenge as the Mbarara City woman MP. We have much hope in you as the new generation coming after us.”
