“The process of succession is slow and those who have eyes can see, it is planned,” Mbabazi said.
Mbabazi made the remarks on Friday when he was chief guest during the dinner to congratulate Frank Tumwebaze on being appointed Minister for the Presidency and Kampala Capital City Authority at Protea Hotel in Kampala.
The media has indeed been awash with reports of internal infighting as several camps fight to win the trust of the President as he plans to relinquish the highest political office in the land in less than ten years.
Some of those tipped to succeed Museveni include Mbabazi, IGP Lt Gen Kale Kayihura, Brig Muhoozi Keinerugaba, Brig James Mugira, Vice President Edward Ssekandi and First Lady Janet Museveni.
Meanwhile, Mbabazi told Tumwebaza that “The fact that you have been appointed to that office shows the confidence the appointing authority have in you as a leader.
On his part, Tumwebaze thanked Mbabazi and the appointing authority for entrusting him with a key and sensitive position.
He pledged to put in place a communications centre where Ugandans would freely send information to the President and keep the latter’s secrets.
Tumwebaze promised to unite the antagonistic camps in KCCA that could sabotage development.
The function was also attended by the new minister’s family, relatives and friends.
