Several MPs attacked Mbabazi for exhibiting double standards and betraying Museveni.


The former Minister of Children’s Affairs, Okot Ogong was more explicit in attacking Mbabazi.


“After everybody else had finished talking, Ogong who was seated in the middle row, stood up, took control of the nearest microphone and asked Mbabazi if he remembers the same caucus in 2005 when he barred and frustrated everyone from standing against President Museveni,” said a source who preferred anonymity as he is not authorised to speak to the press.


“Why are you changing your position this time?” queried the legislator.


“Mr. Mbabazi just refresh your memory to 2005 caucus just days to the National Delegates Conference and judge yourself before us. You are the same man who opposed, rejected and frustrated my idea of leading the party in 2006 general elections,” said Ogong who in 2005 unsuccessfully tried to challenge Museveni in party’s presidential elections.


“You (Mbabazi) said then that the President had overwhelming support and there was no need for another party member to try standing. Now the same President is having more support than before, we shall not listen to you and the caucus resolutions stand,” Ogong told off the Premier point blank, receiving a standing ovation from the caucus members.

Ogong further noted that Mbabazi’s new stance exhibited double standards and that should not be tolerated in the party.


Contacted on phone, Ogong confirmed he would not allow Mbabazi to change Kyankwanzi resolutions.


“It’s true; I assured Mbabazi that we will not allow him play around with Kyankwanzi resolutions. If he wants to stand for President, let him make it clear instead of doing things that undermine party structures,” charged Ogong.


Sources said Mbabazi’s efforts to challenge Ogong were futile as he was heckled by members.


The meeting was postponed to next week when the Party Chairman, President Museveni, is expected to be present.
