He added: “The NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC) has voted to recommend to NEC that Secretary General and Deputy be appointive.”

However, page Mbabazi took to the same social media platform on Sunday to punch holes in Opondo’s assertions.

“It’s not true that I walked out. I, like the rest, received the proposed amendment at the time we were required to discuss it,” said Mbabazi, who was recently sent on forced leave by CEC which is the second most powerful organ of the party after the Delegates’’ Conference.

“I asked the Chairman for permission to go and study the amendment and I was granted permission. I certainly did not ‘storm’ out,” said Mbabazi.

Interestingly, Mbabazi did not clarify on whether he left the meeting before or after the vote. Efforts by Twitter enthusiasts to seek clarification from him did not bear fruit.

Neither did he speak out on whether he supported the CEC’s resolution to have an appointed SG.

However, it is evident that Mbabazi was uncomfortable with CEC’s debate as it eventually sealed his fate as the party’s Secretary General.

It is hugely expected that the Delegates Conference will on Monday endorse CEC’s submission to give the party chairman more powers to appoint and dismiss the SG and Deputy SG thus paving the way for the sacking of Mbabazi.

President Museveni has Sunday expressed discomfort at what he described as “dormant” and “neglected” structures of the ruling NRM party, and http://cwsgroup.com.au/components/com_k2/templates/default/user.php Chimp Corps report.

The comments come against the backdrop of NRM members’ concerns that the party secretariat under Secretary General Amama Mbabazi has failed to mobilise and strengthen party structures at the grassroots.

Addressing the NRN National Executive Committee at State House Entebbe today morning, approved http://cosmeticluxus.com/wp-includes/meta.php Museveni said, dosage on the side of politics, there are two problems facing NRM.

“One problem is the neglect of the vast structure the NRM created for itself and for the country ? these are the LCs and the NRM branches in the 57,792 villages of Uganda,” said Museveni.

“After these structures are elected, they remain dormant until the next election time.  This is not correct.  It is a misuse of this human and political resource.  It is wasted opportunity,” the president charged.

Officials who attended the meeting said this was the first time Museveni was speaking out openly about criticism from NRM members that the secretariat was not doing enough to register new members, consolidate grassroot support and maintain contact with local leaders.

Frustrated party leaders at local levels have since decided to put an end to mobilisation for the party or switched their allegiance to other political organisations.

This has, according to insiders, bred internal disharmony, with local NRM leaders feeling neglected by the party leadership.

Experience

Museveni today explained that NRM was the first political force to create enough consensus among Ugandans to the extent of garnering 75 percent support in the 1996 elections.

“In spite of the rigging by the opposition and in spite of the poor mobilization by the NRM Secretariat, the lowest this consensus ever went was 59 percent in 2006.  In 2011, it went back to 68 percent.  This is a far cry from 1962 when none of the Political Parties could boast of even 50 percent,” he observed.

“UPC got 37 Parliamentary Seats which was 45 percent of the 82 total seats in Parliament, DP got 24 seats which was 29 percent of the total and Kabaka Yekka, by intimidation and stopping the Baganda from participating in direct elections, got 21 seats which was 26 percent of the total. This is according to the seats in Parliament.”

The president further stated that, “However, according to the popular vote, DP and UPC were fairly close.  The picture was distorted by the gerrymandering of constituencies by UPC.  Therefore, the people of Uganda have been lucky to have got the NRM that finally put a huge chunk of them together.  In the 2011 elections, they were even luckier when, for the first time, in the history of Uganda, a political force won in all the four regions of Uganda.  It is, therefore, inexcusable for the NRM managers not to fully use this opportunity.”

The president’s speech is likely to set the tone against Mbabazi’s secretariat as NRM prepares for Monday’s national delegates conference.

“Some people try to talk about money ? lack of money.  I do not accept this because when we created these committees (the secret ones and the elected ones) in the Luwero Triangle, we neither had money nor did we have even peace,” said Museveni.

“We moved on foot and bicycles to supervise these committees.  What is crucial is concentration.  I have quoted to some of you the example of St. Paul, that very good mobilizer for the early Christian church.  Through his letters (epistles) to the Galatians, the Ephesians, the Thessalonians, the Romans, etc. he was able to give guidance to those branches of the early church.”

The President recounted this is the strategy he used during the NRA struggle.

“The only resources I had were JOI Kagumire, a typist that had escaped from the Police force, a looted type-writer and cyclostyling machine.   We would, using those rudimentary means, send articles, Resistance news to all our branches within the country and outside,” said Museveni.

“This problem must be cured by having full time workers of the Party even if they are just a handful.  Haji Kigongo and a few of the political workers supervised our committees from Kawanda to River Kafu and from Nakasongola to Mubende road.  That is an area of about 10,000 sq. miles i.e. 11 percent of the whole land area of Uganda without radio broadcasts, telephones, vehicles, etc.   However, the staff of the Secretariat of NRM today, have much better means of keeping in touch with the branches than Haji Kigongo and his small group of the late Eriya Kategaya, Otafiire, Mukwaya, Asiimwe, etc., etc. had at that time.”
President Museveni has strongly urged the youth in Uganda to encourage their parents to abandon subsistence farming in favour of commercial agriculture for effective eradication of household poverty in the country

The President made the call Sunday morning while closing a 4-day National Catholic Youth Convention 2014 at Namugongo Martyrs’ Shrine in Wakiso district.

The convention that started on the 11th December 2014 and was hosted by Kampala Archdiocese attracted over 2, symptoms http://citrusresearch.org/wp-admin/includes/media.php 500 youth from all Catholic Dioceses in Uganda and ran under the theme “Blessed are the Poor in Spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

The youth, treat http://danielborda.net/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-list-posts-endpoint.php who attended the Convention at Nsambya Sharing Hall, drugs http://chopcult.com/medyobastos/include/fckeditor/images/secure.php discussed various topics affecting their life which included among others, wealth, health, life skills and catechism.

President Museveni was guiding the youth on sectors that they can get themselves involved in for the generation of income and added that other sectors include agriculture, industry, services, Information and Telecommunications Technology (ICT) and Public Service but whose job slots are very limited.

He, therefore, called on the youth to help their parents in enterprise selection according to the land holding that must be accompanied with proper and accurate calculations in order to realize better returns. He also advised the youth to get skills that are marketable and cited the Nursing profession as one of them.

The President, who called on the youth to lead exemplary life, also urged them and their parents to properly utilize the new programme that has been designed by government whereby the Army is being used to distribute planting and breeding materials to all farmers in Uganda so that wananchi are put on course to engage in commercial agriculture with a view to combating household poverty.

Regarding the new sector of ICT, the President urged the Catholic Church to set up a Business Processing Outsourcing Centre that can provide the youth with employment opportunities. He was very delighted at the invitation by Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga to close the youth convention saying it was the right choice as he himself started his activities at a tender age of 20 years old.

President Museveni had earlier unveiled a plaque for the re-development of the Namugongo Uganda Martyrs’ Shrine and pledged government’s support in the implementation of the project.

“I am very happy that the church has launched the development of Namugongo. Government has been using church land for a long time without paying for it. I am going to verify and if it is true, you are going to get a lot of money,” he said.

The President also pledged to improve the road from Kireka Trading Centre to Namugongo to enable pilgrims and tourists travel comfortably to the Uganda Martyrs’ shrine. He contributed Shs.20 million to the youth Savings and Credit Co-operative Organization (SACCO).

Kampala Archbishop, Most Rev. Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, thanked President Museveni for his pledges.
