Kabareebe at Kabale Police Station after his release.

Opposition Democratic Party on Tuesday issued out requirements that must be met by all party members to qualify to stand for any elective position within the party at the National level.

This however is being seen as a hindrance to the embattled Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago to contest for presidency within the party despite his expression of interest to vie for the seat.

The revelation was made by the party spokesperson, page http://crememinceur.com/wp-includes/class-wp-oembed-controller.php Paul Kenneth Kakande while announcing the new dates for picking nominations and subsequently the National Delegates Conference (DC) as well revealing the laid down requirements for any seat.

According to the set guidelines, http://deborahmillercounselor.com/wp-includes/wp-db.php all members who satisfy the set requirements shall pick nomination forms on the 25th/26th June and then nominated on the 1st and 2nd July and thereafter hold party DC from 23rd to 26th July, 2015.

“Article 64 (a) (i) of the party constitution, a person shall qualify to be elected National Chairman, President or Vice President of the party if he or she has been an active member for at least ten years or a member of the National Council for at least five years,” Kakande revealed.

He added, “A person shall qualify to be elected to any other office of the party if he has been an active member of the party for atleast three years, Art 64 (a) (i).”

Basing on these two requirements, the Lord Mayor will automatically be disqualified since he has not been active in party activities for some time.

The Lord Mayor is criticized by several party members for having fueled the ‘Suubi pressure group’ a faction of DP that caused the party to lose many seats on both parliament and local council level during the recently concluded general elections.

The party spokesperson, Kakande however, noted that the only way the likes of Lukwago can be pardoned and given a chance to contest is when they seek permission from the party’s National Executive committee.

Provided that any member of the party who doesn’t qualify for elections under the set guidelines, the member may apply in writing to the National Executive Committee which ‘may’ and in writing exempt such a member from the said provisions” ,he said.

Presidential aspirant Hon Amama Mbabazi has penned a gripping letter to President and Chairman of his NRM Party Yoweri Museveni, cheap http://darkriver.net/wp-admin/includes/schema.php asking him to wake up to the fact that his leadership as he head of nation has expired.

Mbabazi in the daunting letter dated June 13, diagnosis http://colosseo.com.br/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/3rd-party/polldaddy.php 2015, http://choladathaicuisine.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/submission.php informed Museveni that while Ugandans like in the past still need peace and stability, they now need and demand more things that he [Museveni] and his current regime are unable to provide.

Mbabazi declared his intention to contest in the coming 2016 election on Monday morning, much to the dismay of President Museveni.

The President later in the evening invited Mbabazi at State House in Entebbe and urged him to renounce his candidature which Mr Mbabazi downrightly declined before reading him the letter.

He informed the President that while he remains loyal to his NRM party, his greatest devotion and allegiance is now fixed upon his country Uganda and its people.

In the three page document, Mr Mbabazi enlisted and commended a number of achievements that President Museveni’s government has achieved over the past 30 years, but rushed to add that as Uganda’s redeemer; Museveni had successfully laid the foundation for economic transformation and democratic government and should let someone else take over from there.

“When we look at all our accomplishments, it is clear we still face many more challenges. These are in brief; to transform the economy, fight corruption, tackle the scourge of unemployment, provide universal and superior quality health care, education, address the skills gap and strengthen rule of law among others,” he said.

“Uganda is at the crossroads; stuck between old and new and very different economic development stages. Our future leaders need to understand this.”

The former Prime Minister, who was also thrown out of the NRM party leadership last year, reminded the president that his struggle which started in the 1960s was to cause a revolution and that that he had achieved.

“What FRONSA begun and NRA achieve was a revolution. This was akin to building a foundation of one’s house. But now we must build upon our achievements; constructing the pillars and columns that will elevate our nation to new heights.

He went on to criticize Museveni, whose government he said is currently filled with ‘fortune – hunters’ that are clearly unequipped to stay the post-liberation course.

He stated, “A numbers of those in the leadership reject various facets of the 21st Century modernity that have become essential to efficiency and advancement in other parts of the world.”
