Flamboyant NRM Vice Chairperson for Eastern region, Capt. Mike Mukula has jetted in a brand new chopper to facilitate President Yoweri Museveni’s ‘scientific’ campaigns.
The new chopper is an Airbus AS350-B2 with aircraft serial number-7295, Reg no. 5YSGM. The chopper dubbed “The Freedom Fighter” is currently being branded in Nairobi, Kenya before it is flown to Uganda by next week.
According to Mukula, the new chopper will assist the NRM Presidential candidate, Yoweri Museveni and the NRM Party at large during the forthcoming scientific campaigns.
“The chopper will help coordinate and facilitate President Museveni’s campaigns and other NRM Party activities such as airlifting campaign materials to all parts of the country,” Mukula said. The chopper will also frequently fly posters of Yoweri Museveni at a height which is clearly visible by the voters.
Apparently, Mukula who is eyeing to retain his NRM CEC slot will fully fuel the chopper and pay the pilot until election time. The chopper will be stationed at Kololo airstrip and Entebbe Airport for easy accessibility by the NRM Party.
“I am delighted to help the Party to achieve a smooth scientific election where we hope to claim the biggest victory in the general poll. I urge Ugandans to fully support the candidature of Museveni for he has exhibited high levels of competency, expertise and maturity while handling the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mukula said.
It is not the first time Mukula has rendered such a noble offer to the NRM Party. In 2015, he offered a chopper to facilitate the party in the campaigns for 2016 elections.
