NRM “Rebels:” A Thorn In The Ruling Party’s Flesh

adiposity http://catrinmacdonnell.co.uk/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-update-post-v1-1-endpoint.php geneva;”> Speaking to journalists at Parliament on Wednesday, http://chuckatuckhistory.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-delete-media-endpoint.php Tinkasiimire said he would continue with his work because he was voted to “speak for the People.”


Tinkasimiire said he considers his constituents as first priority and the Party comes last, adding he was confident because he had the will of the people.


He as well accused the ruling party of not disciplining its corrupt officials but wasting time and resources to suppress their freedom of expression and blanket the rot in the party perpetuated by what they called “untouchables.”


Tinkasiimire and his colleagues Winifred Niwagaba and Theodore Ssekikuubo were summoned to appear before the NRM Disciplinary Committee to explain why they flout the party rules through attacking the party’s leaders in public.

The Outspoken MPs this week lost their bid for a temporary Court injunction to block the committee from going on with disciplinary proceedings against them.


Kampala High Court said it had failed to see any ground why the applicants should not appear before the Committee.


Tinkasiimire said the committee only intends to “witch hunt us because they want to cover up the rot.”


Tinkasimiire, who is also the chairman Presidential Affairs Committee, warned that if the party tries to show them the exit, he would “face them on the ground.”


“If they try any expulsion my people are on my side and I will meet them on the ground and we see who wins.”


However, he did not mention if he shall stand as an independent, join another party or form his own.


Meanwhile the NRM spokesperson, Ofwono Opondo said the party is still waiting for the MPs’ appearance, adding, it is their choice to appear or not.

“The ball is in their court,” said Opondo.


He, however, quickly added. “They know their wrongs – that is why they fear to appear and as NRM we can’t condone such character and they can go to other parties if they wish.”


Earlier Ssekikuubo vowed not to appear before the committee. “To hell with the Disciplinary Committee.”
