Mbabazi has on several occasions denied mobilising people to support him for President, saying he is a loyal cadre of the NRM.


He, however, clarified he has the right to stand for any elective post in the country.


Nevertheless, Museveni’s strategists believe Mbabazi has been relying on his close confidants in mobilising support from grassroots ahead of the 2016 polls.


State Minister for Urban Planning Rosemary Najjemba Muyinda told this website on Wednesday evening that indeed she had learnt of reports that some ministers have vowed not to work with Mbabazi in the next Cabinet

“It is true; there are ministers who have asked to resign if Mbabazi is not sacked. They want to opt out if the Prime Minister stays around,” said Najjemba.

Asked whether she was among the ministers who are determined not work with Mbabazi, Najjemba responded: “Not really, I am not among them.”

The Ministers accuse Mbabazi of betraying their party “and its chairman by plotting behind the curtains to stand against Museveni in 2016.”

They reportedly met Museveni in February and March to inform him of their thoughts should he choose to retain Mbabazi ahead of the Cabinet reshuffle.

“All of them strongly maintained they cannot continue to dine with the Prime Minister who is plotting against Museveni,” said a high ranking government official on condition of anonymity so as to speak freely.


The ploy could be aimed at making Mbabazi’s life uncomfortable in Cabinet.


The reports come against the backdrop of a heated exchange between some ministers and Mbabazi at the recent Parliamentary Caucus meeting at State House, Entebbe.


During that meeting, Najjemba described Mbabazi as someone who “could not control his wife or wives,” in reference to Jacqueline Mbabazi’s strong-worded press statement denouncing the “fascist tendencies” in NRM.


Mbabazi would later wonder how Najjemba, whose first marriage hit a snag, can question his morality.


The State Minister for Karamoja Affairs, Barbra Nekesa Oundo also used the same platform to condemn Mbabazi for falling short of controlling his own family which “is now tearing the party apart.”


She added: “The biggest problem in our party is the Secretary General terribly failing to reign in his family’s unchecked activities of using party structures to undermine this organisation.”


Another Minister who has expressed bitterness with Mbabazi’s alleged presidential ambitions is Bright Rwamirama.
