President Museveni’s son-in-law, remedy http://christlutheran.org/wp-includes/class-wp-user-meta-session-tokens.php Odrek Rwabwogo has appealed to the National Resistance Movement (NRM) youth to always respect and adhere to the elders’ council or advice even though it may sometime be contrary to their ambitions.

Rwabwogo was recently discontinued from participating in the NRM race by the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) members which has since angered many youth seeing the party historicals as segregative and fighting the young generation.

Rwabwogo made the remarks during the NRM Intergenerational dialogue at Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala on Tuesday where he acknowledged that despite the party facing several transition challenges, salve the youth must learn to always listen to the party elders and follow their counsel.

“My fellow youth, I can understand how you feel about my removal from the party race but this shouldn’t be an issue. I understand in the wisdom of our elders they could have sensed danger ahead,” Rwabwogo said.

“You better understand that once you fail to respect your leaders, your followers will also find it hard to respect you,” he added.

Rwabwogo had earlier explained: “In fact the reason I humbly stepped aside when I was unfairly stopped, was the recognition that the worthiness and weight of many is much better than the right and sanctity or even the pain of an individual. The whole is better than one part.”

He pointed out that the challenge of transition has not only prevailed within the NRM party but has been an issue world over.

“Of course, I know transitions are tough and the NRM is not unique in facing this situation, many institutions world over have faced it with focus and faith and made it. I know the NRM will. But we got to start and show it by opening all the doors. I obviously recognize that transitions aren’t about individuals.”

The function was graced by NRM historicals including Prof Edward Rugumayo, Mr David Mafabi, Magode Ikuya and Hope Kivengere.

The young generation leaders included Kyambogo University Guild President, Ian Kafuko, Hilda Akabway and Hon Rose Namayanja.

Rwabwogo said he was “looking forward to a deeper ideological transition that will allow a newer level of depth among leaders than we have so far had among the young people, in order to take this organization into the new world with confidence.”

He added: “To create this kind of depth isn’t just about crafting or fighting for a position in the party or parliament. It is about a deliberate and conscious effort to create a platform across the party and country that can be used to mentor, nurture and nourish leaders for the future. I feel there is an opportunity to do this and we have to grab it in the next five years. I pray that the mantle of leadership our leaders carry based on the deep personal sacrifices they made to restore the nation- is vested into a newer generation that works hard and deserves it not just because of our age or time or even our availability as workers.”
