National Resistance Movement (NRM) chairman and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has revealed that the forthcoming National Delegates Conference will not be discussing the position of Secretary General and former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi.
“We shall use it to see how far we have gone in realizing our goals. We shall not be discussing the Secretary General because those are small issues. We never believe in sectarianism and we strongly oppose it, prostate physician http://conceptbath.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-media-list-table.php ” Museveni said while appearing on a local talk show on Saturday morning.
“In the 1971 coup we had differences with some of our colleagues who were supporting Amin but our contestation is always on principals. If you start contesting for power, side effects http://cstaab.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/textarea.php then you don’t belong to NRM .As long as there is peace in Uganda, http://clothesthatwork.org/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/common/src/tribe/settings_tab.php why should there be a contest? I know Mbabazi for as long as 40 years, so leave that issue to us. ”
According to Museveni, the December 15 National Delegates Conference will be used to see how far they have come and review where the party and the country at large are going.
“We shall use it to see how far we have gone. Are our people moving from subsistence to commercial farming? Have we realized all our goals?”
Museveni further explained that the NRM set goals including security, infrastructure, patriotism, Pan Africanism, Social economic transformation and democracy which he said are the problems facing the country which he stressed need to be tackled.
“I am a Munyankole, so what? Will that make me prosperous? What will make me prosperous is selling my milk and other crops produced to earn some income. Africa is roughly 200 years behind Europe in terms of Social transformation. Our (NRM) prosperity is based on both Uganda and Africa.”
“Security must be there and provided by the state. We must have infrastructure to link goods from the upcountry to the town where they are brought,” Museveni explained.
When asked on whether he will have a final say in decision making during the conference, Museveni said, “NRM is not an empire so there is no emperor. What will come from the NEC and CEC is what will be debated. In fact it will be discussions where I will participate and agree to some issues.
