Speaking to residents of Kankamba village in Kisekka Sub County in Lwengo district, Ms. Najjemba said since the NRM government is emphasizing improved household incomes, there is need for electorates to be extra-vigilant in choosing political leaders who will further cause development in their areas than electing job seekers whose potential is doubtable.

“You must desist from electing jobs seekers, they are too poor to manage political offices and they will not deliver up to your expectation’’ Minister Najjemba warned saying that many people in various constituents have not benefited from government programmes because of selfish leaders who are only using political offices to lobby for their families against the interests of the electorates. She said job seekers have greatly contributed to poverty in communities.

Najjemba who is retiring from active politics this year added that government put in place development projects and released funds under various programmes to help people improve on their welfare and uplift the development of their areas from rural to urban but nothing has been achieved because of lazy leaders whose eligibility to lobby for development and capacity to monitor government programmes is still low. Hon. Mariam Najjemba urged the people to put to task candidates to first show what development projects they have done in those areas where they want to be leaders.
