“It’s not true that Mbabazi has stepped aside. He still maintains his innocence. As of now that’s what i can confirm,” Bahati told us in a telephone conversation five minutes ago.

Parliament two weeks ago ruled that Mbabazi, Sam Kutesa and Hilary Onek must pave way for smooth investigations into the oil bribe scandal.

The army, represented in Parliament by Gen. Elly Tumwiine, also reiterated that Mbabazi must go and stop his arrogance.

Nevertheless, we are still contacting our sources in State House for more details ‘just in case’.

But by press time, all we could confirm authoritatively is that Mbabazi is still in office.

Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga will tomorrow Thursday name an adhoc committee to probe Mbabazi and his colleagues.
