Maj Gen Kahinda Otafiire stepped down for fellow NRA historical Maj Gen Matayo Kyaligonza.
Rwabwogo said he received the news while in Bushenyi where he was meeting NRM leaders from the five districts of Rubirizi, information pills http://communityartsprogram.org/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/class-wc-session-handler.php Sheema, Mitooma, Buhweju and Bushenyi.
“I have just been told about the unfortunate CEC decision but I have no official communication, no interview and no warning although I had been called yesterday from a training session in Mbarara and had seven hours of waiting last evening,” said Rwabwogo.
“This candidature as you all know has never been just about me even if people wanted to frame it this way. Any John or Tom raising the matters we raise that take deep heart with the population and specifically the NRM members, would achieve the same kind of attention and support and opposition in equal measure,” he added.
President Museveni told NEC members at State House Entebbe that he runs the party business and that Rwabwogo did not consult him.
Businessman Hakim Lukenge who was standing against Al Hajji Moses Kigongo for NRM National Vice Chairperson was equally removed from the race by CEC sitting at State House Entebbe on Friday night.
On his part, Rwabwogo said “This news found me teaching, mentoring, building and nourishing our grassroots base. This is what I love to do to strengthen our party for a brighter future.”
The President’s son-in-law urged his supporters “to take heart and to rejoice in the work we have been able to do in a short time” with very limited means.
“For this I am deeply grateful that we all rose to the occasion to make a difference especially the kind of ‘terror’ wave we have lodged against incompetence in our organisation,” he added.
Rwabwogo recently complained that the NRM ideology was on the verge of extinction and that the young people need space at the party’s top leadership to breathe new life into the organisation’s crumbling structures.
“We have proved that positions are for work and not for self seeking our purposes and a sense of entitlement. I believe we have just begun and therefore let’s keep together. We will continue this work. I thank you.”
