The cause of the tycoon’s death remains unclear.

However, he was found in a pool of blood.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango told Chimpreports on Friday morning that, “at first we thought it was a hit-and-run.”

The embattled ruling National Resistance Movement party Secretary General, cheap Amama Mbabazi is yet again set for another round of grilling by party chairman, purchase President Museveni today Friday.

Mbabazi who was on Thursday quizzed and humiliated in a historic 11-hour session by the Central Executive Committee meeting at State House Nakasero on his covert presidential campaigns, tadalafil is supposed to depart his posh Kololo residence with his Wife Jacqueline Ruhindi Mbabazi besides him straight to the same venue for another interview.

Chimpreports has exclusively learnt that Mbabazi will only be together with his wife on the way, but on reaching the Southern Wing gate opposite Sheraton where they have been directed to use; his wife will be whisked to a different direction.

The meeting is designed in a way that Museveni meets Mbabazi and Jacqueline separately.

“He accepted mobilizing for campaigns but did not tell us all. We all agreed that he and his wife should meet the chairman the next day in the morning for another interview,” said a high ranking source in the NRM party who attended the meeting but asked to remain anonymous since he is not supposed to speak to media.

Mbabazi admitted for the first time yesterday, that he has been carrying out campaigns for the presidency ahead of the 2016 elections.

After facing Museveni today with his wife, Mbabazi shall again report to another CEC meeting on Saturday which will decide whether he should be thrown out or retained Secretary General.

The NRM Constitution provides that the Secretary General can be elected or impeached by the delegates’ conference.

However, CEC, which is the second highest decision making organ of NRM, has already received petitions and signatures from the party`s youth league and the caucus asking that Mbabazi cease being the party on grounds of abuse of office and creation of intrigue and other related offences.

On Wednesday, the Youth League passed a resolution demanding that the once powerful ‘super minister’ faces a disciplinary committee for undermining the party chairman President Museveni and working covertly to promote his presidential ambitions at the expense of the organisation’s common interests.

In a letter to the NRM Disciplinary Committee Chairman, Hajji Moses Kigongo which Chimpreports has seen, the Youth League recommends that “Hon. Amama Mbabazi be dismissed as Secretary General and we here by withdraw our recognition to him as such.”

The youth claim their decision to kick out Mbabazi was informed by the “continued undermining of the national party Chairman (Museveni) by de-campaigning him among party leaders and delegates through holding secret meetings to push a personal anti-party agenda. This behaviour amounts to intrigue and blackmail of the party Chairman and President of Uganda.”

They further allege that “Hon. Amama Mbabazi has abused his authority as the party custodian by conniving with his daughter to hide the national party register to frustrate the party leadership and holding the party at ransom, while demanding excessive monies to release it. This behaviour contravenes Rule 4(f) code of conduct.”

This investigative website understands that Thursday`s CEC meeting was postponed to Saturday since their chairman Museveni will be available for a very short time on Friday to quiz Mbabazi and his wife.

Jacqueline Mbabazi is suspected of raising funds for her husband’s grassroot mobilisers.

The funds were reportedly used to induce and trick NRM party members and mobilisers into signing a petition to convene a delegates’ conference to challenge the NRM party resolution taken at Kyankwanzi to front Museveni as the organisation’s sole candidate in the 2016 polls.
