Ruling NRM party is set to launch into 2015, amidst an earthshaking legal battle against its sacked Secretary General Hon Amama Mbabazi.
The latest development there is, indicates that Mbabazi is set to challenge his recent outing as the NRM Secretary General.
A known treacherous and a careful selector of his utterances, Mbabazi yesterday took to social media and made it clear that he would not accept his dismissal from the ruling party.
“As far as I know, I am still the Secretary General – NRM, the process through which I was seemingly replaced was indubitably void,” he posted.
The NRM Party decisively expunged Mbabazi from the top position through constitutional amendments adopted by top party organs and endorsed at the December 15 delegates Conference in Namboole.
Under the new reforms, President Museveni was empowered to and indeed nominated Government Chief Whip Hon Kasule Lumumba to replaced Mbabazi as NRM SG.
Earlier in September, has been dramatically sacked as Prime Minister, being replaced by Health Minister Hon Dr Ruhakana Rugunda.
This followed Mbabazi’s deemed simmering intentions to stand against President Yoweri Museveni who seeks the fifth term as President of Uganda.
A general feel of ultimate suppression of Mbabazi hovered around the December 15 Delegates Conference, as 10000 members celebrated his final fall and chanted Museveni sole candidature slogans.
But a seasoned lawyer and well established NRM historical; Mbabazi is setting stage for an all out battle against the organization he has served for more than 3 decades.
He had earlier been quoted in the media as promising to shock the nation with his next move, after he was sacked.
Mbabazi, who was recently sent by the party on a forced leave to allow smooth endorsement of the constitutional amendments, is now expected to storm his Secretary General Office at the beginning of 2015.
