ampoule geneva; font-size: small;”>The organisation’s coordinator Ray Kamugisha says during their stay at Kyadondo, the youth will hold a debate under the topic “The Pursuance of zero tolerance to corruption: what are the roles and responsibilities of NRM Youth?”

“We are reformists. We need not only to secure our destiny but also trying to answer our generational calls which you can call a mission,” said Kamugisha.

“Mbabazi should choose between Secretary General and Prime Minister. He has so far failed,” added Kamugisha.

“Our target is to build a party like ANC or CCM. We need very strong party structures…” added.

“We need to prepare ourselves for leadership because you can hardly find anything or even any one at Kyadondo party head office. What kind of party is that?” wondered Kamugisha.

Mbabazi has in the past resisted pressure to stand down as SG despite promising to relinquish the coveted position after being appointed Prime Minister last year.

NRM insiders say Mbabazi fears leaving the running of party activities into the hands of “untested hands” or ambitious men who could set off a storm from within.

Sources further say some cliques inside NRM want to overthrow Mbabazi before undermining his political ambitions.

However, Kamugisha says the NRM youth wing is very vibrant with over 300,000 members who want to see change in the way NRM secretariat is being run.

“We should have a well-structured office where party members can find information. Can you imagine the party Electoral Commission is made up of two people?” he charged.

“We met in Kansanga at Shine Hotel and made a declaration to move forward,” affirmed Kamugisha.

He further stated that the Kansanga meeting was closed by David Bahati.

It’s not yet clear how the youth will cause “regime change” at the party headquarters but the development highlights a polarization of party structures and growing power struggle between the youth and “old crop.”

Mbabazi was not readily available for comment.
