THE Democratic Party (DP) has secured new party headquarters in Lubaga Division on Masaka Road, reports Joyce Namutebi. The building was leased to DP at $25,000 (about sh45m) per year, sources said on Friday. The lease runs for five years. Sources said the money was given by the Conservative Party of the UK. Sources said the building would be turned into the party’s headquarters. The office that has been serving as the party headquarters on City House in Kampala would remain open, the sources said. The UK Conservative Party will also sponsor DP Members of Parliament by printing their posters and other handouts, the sources said. Meanwhile, DP is giving out motorcycles to its campaign coordinators in all districts. However, DP officials complained that some of their supporters were being arrested and asked to explain the source of their money. The director for the DP presidential candidate, Norbert Mao, has said he undertook this assignment as a loyal party member and would do it to the best of his ability. He said his team would ensure a strong campaign, give a strong message of hope to Ugandans and make sure that the people know their candidate. “We shall have a well-coordinated campaign,” he said, adding that they would publish audited accounts after their campaigns.
