The troubled Deputy Speaker of Parliament, online http://chimpreports.com/elections/wp-content/plugins/featured-video-plus/featured-video-plus.php Jacob Oulanya, rx second Deputy Prime Minister, Moses Ali, minister of Disaster and Preparedness, Hilary Onek and state minister of Housing, Sam Engola who is also the ruling National Resistance Movement vice chairperson have held two seemingly high profile meetings.

The first meeting took place on Wednesday at Parliament without Onek while the second was held at Oulanya’s Chambers on the fifth floor of Parliament.

The second meeting started at exactly 11:00am and by 4:00pm when the story was being filed it was still ongoing.

Multiple sources close to them told this reporter that the quartet who are all contesting for the position of National Vice Chairperson NRM North are seeing the way of harmonizing their candidature and zeroing on person to be a sole candidate.

“Sam (Engola) and his three brothers (Oulanya, Onek, Ali) have indeed and still going to be meeting to arrive at one person to go unopposed since they are all friends,” a source close to Engola said.

During the first meeting just like The Democratic Alliance (TDA) scenario, the four didn’t agree but each simply forwarded reasons which make them think they deserve the position.

Engola who is the incumbent reportedly to his three colleagues to leave for him the position since his sub-region (Lango) is without a big figure in government unlike Acholi sub region that has Oulanya as the Deputy Speaker, Richard Todwong – the NRM Deputy Secretary General and Onek himself a cabinet minister.

Engola reportedly added that for West Nile, Moses Ali is the first Deputy Premier and therefore Lango sub-region should retain the position.

Meanwhile, Oulanya on his side told the meeting that Engola has served his time and should give way to a new person.

Oulanya who is the youngest among the foursome also told the assembly that the ruling party is making great strides in the region that had supported the opposition for a long time and it needs a hot blood like him to be on the steering wheel.

The NRM only won in the presidential elections in northern Uganda in the last 2011 poll with 53 percent.

Efforts to obtain a comment from them were fruitless.

Relative to their mission, the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Gen. Kahinda Otafiire who was standing for the Vice Chairperson Western region stood down for his rival Brig. Kyaligonza since the former hails from Ankole – the birthplace of the party chairman, President Museveni.
