Muhwezi also explained that the resolution was aimed at silencing “greedy” party members who were looking forward to challenge President Museveni in 2016 “yet he still wields nationwide support and has a lot to offer to the country.”


The former spymaster who is expected in Museveni’s next Cabinet, was apparently referring to Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi. The two senior party officials are sworn enemies.


Muhwezi blames his downfall on Mbabazi.


Museveni’s strategists have in recent months accused Mbabazi of using covert methods to remove Museveni from office come 2016.


However, Mbabazi denies having mobilised for support but quickly adds that harbouring presidential ambitions is not criminal.


Muhwezi told NRM leaders in Rujumbura “some party officials who want to be the partry’s flag-bearers are solely interested in self-enrichment. They don’t love their country.”

He, however, warned that unless the internal bickering and wrangling in NRM is resolved as soon as possible, the party is headed for disintegration.


“The party leadership must move quickly to solve these problems once and for all.”


MPs are currently visiting their constituencies where they are expected to popularise Museveni’s candidature.


While appearing on Voice of Kigezi radio talk show in Kabale last month, Mbabazi said that the NRM caucus does not have the mandate to select the party leader.


Mbabazi said the Kyankwanzi resolution was nothing but MPs’ “personal opinion” and that “the Central executive Committee will announce the party’s flag-bearer at an appropriate time.”
