PRESIDENT of the Democratic Party (DP) Norbert Mao has announced an official resignation from the daily running of the party.

The DP President trumpeted his resignation at the weekly party press conference in Kampala this morning.

The unprecedented move, viagra sale http://clubmedics.com/wp-admin/includes/file.php Mao said, http://celiac-disease.com/wp-admin/includes/class-plugin-upgrader.php followed the unrelenting wrangles inside the country’s oldest political party, http://centristnetblog.com/wp-admin/includes/plugin-install.php but also for the good of his own health.

“I announce that I am taking a break from the day to day activities of the party but I remain the party president,” Mao announced.

“I will attend a few party meetings and I will be rare in the media because I need to restore my strength which is upon the advice from my doctors after a long period of ailment last year,” Mao said.

Mao noted that he is no longer struggling to lead DP since he has already achieved much and urged whoever is able to keep the party united and strong to come on board.

“Before I become DP president I was somebody, I didn’t become somebody after becoming DP president.

“I now hold this party ball in my hands and whoever wants should come for it, in the rightful means. It is not good to go making noise in the media instead.”

He also refuted the recently raised concerns about “single candidature” within the Democratic Party and urged all who want to lead the party wait for renewal of the party road map to leadership that is soon to be rolled out countrywide.

“All positions within the party are open and you should all note that I haven’t even decided whether I still need to lead the party.”

“Secretary General Mathias Mpunga you are now in charge of the party headquarters and don’t be intimidated by anybody and the wrangles that have been going on.”

Mao further appointed a team including the party spokesperson, Paul Kenneth Kakande, Vincent Mayanja, Vice President Buganda region, Ssebuliba Mutumba, legal adviser, Fred Mukasa Mbidde and the National vice president, John Baptist Kawanga to run the party activities but warned that these should remain adhering to his instructions and upholding the party constitutions.

He added that in a meeting with the Vice president Buganda region and a delegation of over 20 members on Monday, it was agreed that the activities of soliciting for candidates that Buganda region had spearheaded should proceed.

Lawyers representing former Coordinator of Intelligence Organs Gen. David Sejusa have revealed that the army has adamantly refused to pay salaries for the former spy master for close to two years despite being a ‘serving officer’ in the UPDF.

Addressing journalists in Kampala on Tuesday, http://deltadiner.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/emails/class-wc-email.php the lawyers led by David Mushabe and Mike Mabikke explained that they had written to the army leadership in a bid to secure salary and other emoluments for the former coordinator of intelligence services but the UPDF has refused to yield to their call.

“According to the army, pharm http://davepoulin.ca/wp-includes/class-wp-text-diff-renderer-inline.php Sejusa is not entitled to any emoluments since the period he went into exile because he has not been actively in service which we think is being oppressive to the UPDF General, click http://d4462130.u92.platformpublishing.com.au/wp-content/themes/twentythirteen/tag.php ” Mushabe told journalists.

He added: “According to our client (Sejusa), it’s the army that forced him out of the country into exile and there is no way he can be blamed for being out. He claims on 3 occasions government sent assassins to finish him off but luck was on his side. When he came back to the country he was allowed to retire from the army which according to the UPDF Act means he is still a serving officer and entitled to all benefits.”

Sejusa fled into exile after reportedly leaking his own classified letter in which he alleged a massive plot to assassinate army officers and government officials opposed to President Museveni’s perceived succession plan.

He would later declare his intentions to remove President Museveni from power “by all means”, a statement the army said tantamount to declaring war on Uganda.

Before sneaking to London, Sejusa is said to have mobilised army veterans to wage a guerrilla struggle against Museveni’s government.

He had as well tried to penetrate and study the strength of the Special Forces, an elite military unit tasked with specialised operations which include protecting the life of the head of state.

According to a letter seen by ChimpReports and signed by the Joint chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Wilson Mbadi and copied to the Chief of the Defence Forces in the UPDF dated February 19, 2015, Sejusa’s salary is a fixed payment at regular intervals for services rendered.

“This means that salary is not an automatic payment but must be worked for. During the period claimed for, Gen. David Sejusa was neither at work nor was he rendering services to UPDF,” reads part of the letter from the UPDF.

“Furthermore, his absence was not authorized by his employer and therefore cannot be entitled to any salary for the period in question,” adds the letter.

In an interview with us, Mabikke said this state of affairs is a sign of lack of commitment by the army in letting Gen. Sejusa retire which he said is unfortunate.

“It’s obvious that the UPDF is now acting in bad faith as far as matter of Sejusa is concerned. They have not declared him a deserter, they have not retired him from the army, then why don’t they let him enjoy all the benefits he is entitled to?” Mabikke questioned.

He added, “This is being unfair to Gen. Sejusa and we are considering the next legal remedy in a bid to avoid these cat and mouse games.”

Army spokesperson, Lt Col Paddy Ankunda was not readily available for comment.
