The process to remove former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi from NRM, malady http://danielborda.net/wp-includes/class-wp-http-curl.php a party he co-founded with President Museveni among others, symptoms appears to have started.

On Thursday, pill Minister of State for Youth and Children Affairs wrote to the NRM Secretary General, Kasule Lumumba, informing her of NRM youth’s desire to have Mbabazi kicked out of the ruling party.

Cadres 2014, an NRM youth Group in Kampala yesterday said Mbabazi has “decided to conduct campaigns before the time stipulated by NRM Electoral Commission and is using a wrong logo (Crested Crane) and wrong slogan (go forward) that shows he is not running for elections within the party.”

The youth also accused Mbabazi of “his constant association with the opposition known as Democratic Alliance and the use of hate messages spread by his agents on social media.”

The petition added: “Therefore in our opinion we suggest that Hon Mbabazi should be held accountable and subjected to disciplinary action. Secretary General, it is upon this background that we request you and Central Executive Committee to intervene or expel him from the party.”

After receiving the petition, Anite, who is known for championing the NRM’s sole candidature of President Museveni in the 2016 presidential elections, immediately wrote to Lumumba.

“I am writing in regard to a meeting organised today June 18 2015 at Nakivubo Blue Primary School by 225 NRM Cadres codenamed Cadres 2014 who were passed out late last year by President Museveni,” Anite’s letter which ChimpReports has seen, reads in part.

“During the meeting a petition about the conduct of Hon Amama Mbabazi was submitted to me to be forwarded to you and the chairman of the NRM party.  Attached herewith is a detailed document of the petition and signatures as submitted by the NRM cadres 2014.”

This website understands that many top NRM officials want Mbabazi to face punitive action for engaging in activities seen as divisive.

It should be remembered that Mbabazi spearheaded the campaign to have NRM rebel MPs Mohammed Nsereko (Kampala central MP), Theodore Sekikubo (Lwemiyaga county MP), Wilfred Niwagaba and Barnabas Tinkasiimire kicked out of the party.

The MPs were blamed for faulting Rule 4 of the NRM constitution which prohibits; use of foul language, campaigning against official party flag bearers in elections, being an agent of foreign agents to the detriment of the party or country and wilfully spreading malicious propaganda.

Mbabazi this week announced plans to stand for president in the 2016 elections. He promised to deliver quality education and healthcare services not to mention a more accountable government.

NRM officials fired back, accusing Mbabazi of hypocrisy considering that he had been part of the system which he now accuses of weariness.

Museveni also said he had received information that Mbabazi and his associates were involved in sectarian propaganda, a charge the former NRM Secretary General, denies.

Mbabazi on Thursday wrote to the Electoral Commission about his intentions to hold district consultation meetings.
