Kenyatta, Odinga Lock Horns in New By-election

Former Internal Security Organisation (ISO) head of discipline, patient seek http://chesapeakebaydiningguide.com/wp-includes/rss.php Retired Lieutenant Bahati Mohammad Kabahena has made a u-turn, visit http://causestudio.co/wp-admin/includes/template.php saying he never crossed from the NRM to FDC.

“As far as I am concerned, pills http://chimpreports.com/entertainment/wp-includes/ms-blogs.php I didn’t change a political party. I was invited to the function of FDC President General Muntu to make remarks on the need for political change in the country. They wanted me to show solidarity to their call for change,” said Bahati.

The former spy told ChimpReports on Saturday in an exclusive interview in Kabale that, “People who don’t know politics are going to destroy this country. Political parties are associations of people that have similar interests to govern society. I am one of those in NRM who want to see change.”

Bahati recently caused a stir in Kabale when he alleged that he has been participating in rigging of elections in favour of president Museveni for the last 30 years.

District authorities have since urged Bahati to record a statement with police in regard to what they referred to as “baseless” and “alarmist” remarks that have “tarnished the image of the president.”

Bahati further blasted his critics, accusing them of ideological malnourishment “because people around Museveni don’t understand what NRM stands for. It’s an inclusive party in that it tolerates divergent views of its members.”

He referred to the cordial relations between Museveni and FDC iron lady, Salaam Musumba as reminder that politics “is not a matter of life and death.”

Bahati also slammed Kabale deputy RDC Moses Nuwagaba who recently described the army officer as “a political prostitute who changes parties,” saying his boss Museveni has as well changed membership to organisations but still rules Uganda.

“Museveni began with Scripture Union in Ntare School. He then went to Tanzania where he joined the political discussion group of political scientists, then FRELIMO. He was a member of FRONASA, UNLF, UPM, DP and also worked in UPC as an intelligence officer under President Milton Obote,” said Bahati.

The ex spy whom government has dismissed as disgruntled and “seeking cheap popularity,” said Museveni should respect inbuilt mechanisms of internal democracy instead of suppressing dissent.

He expressed shock that NRM MPs had endorsed Museveni as their sole candidate in the 2016 elections, arguing it disenfranchises party members and suffocated internal competition for higher political offices.

Bahati said despite putting his life on the line while serving in the army and protecting the life of the president during his days as an intelligence officer, “I am now here in Kirigime making bricks to survive.”

He added: “I am calling upon all Ugandans that feel sidelined by the system to demand for their share of the national cake.”

Authorities accuse Bahati of engaging in grassroots political campaigns while wearing military uniform and spreading harmful propaganda.

Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) supporters to conduct peaceful campaigns during the Kajiado Central by-election set for March 16.

The race for Kajiado is steadily shaping into a two-horse race with Kenyatta planning to use it to popularise his new outfit, nurse http://copiproperties.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-json-deflate-array-codec.php the Jubilee Alliance Party, while Cord leader Raila Odinga seeks to rejuvenate his political fortunes after several unsuccessful attempts at the highest political seat in the land.

Kenyatta said JAP is a mature party that stands for peace, adding that the party will unite Kenyans and not divide the people through many parties.

President Kenyatta said JAP organised democratic nominations and people picked Mr Patrick Tutui to carry the party’s flag in the Kajiado Central by-elections.

“Those who lost in the nominations should work with the victor,” President Kenyatta said.

President Kenyatta spoke this week when he visited the JAP headquarters in Lavington, Nairobi, and presented Mr Tutui with the party’s nomination certificate.

National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale asked the opposition to stop dividing people and instead concentrate on preparing itself for the next elections.

“The Jubilee Alliance knows who its captain is. President Kenyatta is the leader and Jubilee is our party,” Mr Duale said.

Speaking during the occasion, Mr Tutui thanked President Kenyatta for the honour of handing him the JAP certificate. He described the JAP nomination as “the most rigorous he has ever gone through”.

JAP Vice-Chairman David Murathe noted that when TNA was formed, the party won its first Parliamentary seat in Kajiado North. The new seat for JAP will be Kajiado Central, he said.

JAP Secretary-General Veronica Maina explained that JAP was previously called the Conservative Party and a member of the Jubilee coalition, adding that it is not a new party.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery said he had only accompanied the President to the function and would not involve himself in politics because a CS is not allowed by the Constitution.
