There are organs in the party and we (NRM) have open methods of work and ways of exercising our rights,” explained the Premier while addressing journalists in Kampala on Saturday.
Mbabazi added that the retreat at Kyankwanzi didn’t have the mandate to choose the party flag bearer for the forthcoming 2016 elections but rather the National executive.
“In NRM, we subscribe to values we teach including freedom and democracy, among others and we so much like to practise them. No one should go to the public and assume that there is a war in the party because we are harmonious and give opinions to each other. We make mistakes and correct each other.”
Standing against Museveni in 2016
The Premier explained that as a disciplined cadre of the ruling NRM party, he can’t stand against the President without endorsement from the party adding, that he has never shown interest in standing against President Museveni.
“I have for the last two decades said that I am a disciplined cadre of the NRM. If you are for the party, it can assign you but I have not campaigned for presidency and whoever s saying so is deceiving you. Many people say I deserve to be president and I say thank you but those are opinions they are entitled to.”
“Many people think I am going to challenge President Museveni but how can stand against him when the party has chosen him? If the party gives me the assignment I will do it of course,” Mbabazi explained.
Political career still alive
The Premier, contrary to reports by many people that he has been weakened politically, said that he was still strong and his career is alive.
“How many times have I been killed politically? They said in the Temangalo saga that I had inflated my land yet I did nothing. During the oil saga they alleged that I received bribes and this small boy Gerard Karuhanga only presented Wikileaks as the evidence yet I had not talked to anybody. An Auditor General’s Report which I asked for and covered an area when I was not even the Prime Minister but they again said I was part of it. I should in fact get applause for the good work. I have been tested and they have done all they could but i have emerged the winner.”
The Premier made it clear that he is still strong and will continue serving the country and his party adding, that age is just a number which doesn’t matter.
“When you look at leadership, it must not be quantitative but rather qualitative. What ideas does this man have in his or her head is what matters. Only those who have no work to do take leave,” stressed Mbabazi.
