Mbabazi made the remarks on Easter Sunday at St Andrew’s Karubaizi Church of Uganda in Kanungu District.

“Let those who are after me leave me alone,” said Mbabazi.

The comments come high on the heels of intelligence reports that Mbabazi has been secretly mobilising for support from the grassroot levels ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.

While Mbabazi continues to deny being part of such plans, he admits his wife Jacqueline Mbabazi indeed carried out some mobilisation.

NRM MPs have since taken to the grassroots to popularise the NRM Kyankwanzi retreat resolution declaring President Museveni as the party’s sole candidate in the 2016 elections.

Accompanied by his wife Jacqueline, Mbabazi urged the youth to speak out whenever their rights are violated, saying he and peers in government began their revolution at an early age.

“For the youth, you should be focused because we the old generation will soon leave and we are banking on you to takeover because we have already played our role,” Mr Mbabazi said.

“I have been in the struggle for the country’s liberation for long to ensure that the rights of all Ugandans are respected. Offering one’s self uninhibited for any elective position was one of those rights,” said Mbabazi.

He was possibly referring to his youthful NRM supporters who were recently arrested and charge for alleged acts of bribery.

Jacqueline, who is also a Canon in the Church of Uganda, told the congregation that she will never shy away from speaking out the truth in her capacity as national chairperson of NRM Women’s League.

“When you are a leader and fail to tell the truth, you let down the people you lead,” she said.

In his sermon, the Rev Justus Tukwasibwe said the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundation of Christianity and urged the believers to renew their faith and always rely on God to overcome life’s challenges.
