“I don’t know why President Museveni continues to surround himself with old guards. The NRM party has got young men who can perform better than Prof. Kabwegyere. We are waiting for the day when Museveni will trust us (young cadres) in the movement, ” said Deo Atuhaire, the Buhweju district councilor.

He maintained the president is will regret appointing members of the old political parties who were responsible for their eventual fall.

Atuhaire said it was high time Museveni thought of appointing young cadres in the movement thereby giving them an opportunity to serve this nation.

Apollo Kakonge, the West Ankole Civil Society Organisation Forum coordinator, said it was not wrong for the president to appoint Kabwegyere a minister.

Kakonge, however, said the mistake was the ministry where he was posted.

“Prof. Kabwegyere is one of the best learned fellows in this country. I don’t agree with those who are saying that he is very old. Even ministers that are young than him have not performed well in their ministries. The problem is that Kabwegyere has never spoken well on women and youth, therefore giving him the Gender Ministry will be a sdisaster,” Kakonge told Chimpreports.

He further noted that Kabwegyere is not friendly to the civil society organization, adding that he should be given another ministry not Gender.

Mackay Atwijukire, a resident of Nyakabirizi division in Bushenyi municipality, said that Prof. Kabwegyere is no longer a respected person in Bushenyi district.

Atwijukye argued that the president should look for those who can help him mobilize people for the implementation of government’s programs.

Early this month president Museveni reshuffled his cabinet, returning among others Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere whom he had been dropped in 2011.
