The National Resistance Movement -NRM has given the Forum for Democratic Change -FDC a stunning blow in Moyo district by snatching its LCV candidate just a month to the elections.

Isaac Drajuruga who was duly nominated on FDC ticket for the Moyo district LC 5 chair took his supporters by surprise yesterday when he announced his defection to NRM and called on the shocked supporters to vote for the NRM LC 5 flag bearer Williams Anyama. 

In his official unveiling as a new member of the NRM party on Monday at Celecelea stadium, Drajuruga told NRM supporters who organized to welcome him that he sees no reason of contesting against the NRM LC 5 flag bearer.  Dismissing allegations of possible bribery, Drajuruga noted that the contribution of NRM to the development of Moyo district since 1986 has been convincing enough for him to step down.   

// Cue in; We have been suffering.…// Cue out; result of NRM regime.…. //  Meanwhile Williams Anyama the incumbent LC 5 chairman who is also battling to retain the seat on NRM ticket distanced himself from accusations of paying off Drajuruga to leave the space for him. According to Anyama, Drajuruga’s decision was never influenced by any cash factor from the NRM.   

// Cue in; Many people after…// Cue out; your integrity down…. //   

Sam Asusi, the NRM chairman Moyo district welcomed the defection of Drajuruga to NRM and announced his immediate incorporation in to the district taskforce for President Museveni.  

// Cue in; NRM party door is…// Cue out; Kaguta Museveni…. //   

However, Kaps Hassan Fungaroo the FDC northern region Mobilizer has described the defection of Drajuruga as stage managed and manipulated by the NRM Secretariat, which he warns could be regrettable to Drajuruga in the near future.

The stepping down and defection of Drajuruga to NRM has left Moyo district with three candidates two of who are Independents.
