The recording reportedly pinned Mbabazi for strategizing to challenge the incumbent during the 2016 polls.

It was then decided that Mbabazi resigns as Secretary General as well as face the disciplinary committee. However, it is important to note that the Parliamentary caucus does not have the mandate to remove Mbabazi from office.

The National Executive Committee would have to sit and make resolutions on the matter for the delegates’ conference to act.

Nevertheless, other party members who will face disciplinary action for undermining the party structures include former Minister and NRM mobiliser Hope Mwesigye and Mbabazi’s wife Jacqueline Mbabazi.


Mbabazi has in recent weeks maintained he never campaigned for President anywhere.

“I am not in the 2016 presidential campaign and we as a party are going to announce our campaign programme when the time comes; people should just wait for it,” Mbabazi told thousands who attended the launch at the Uganda Institute of Communications Technology, Nakawa during the weekend.

Mbabazi narrated exploits that have bonded him for over 40 years with the party chairman, including working together to defeat dictatorship and pacify the country, and they would continue doing so.

He promised to write a book explaining this history, wondering why any differences would arise between the two leaders now.

“It seems there is worry that there will be disturbance because there are alleged differences between the President and the Prime Minister but such a thing cannot happen,” he said.

“It is true there are people who want that to happen; we know some and see others.”

Some of the members who have been thrown out of the party on allegations of indiscipline include Theodore Ssekikuubo, Barnabus Tinkasiimire, Mohammed Nsereko and Winfred Niwagaba.

Mbabazi mobilized lawyers to ensure the quartet is even thrown out of Parliament.
