07:15am: This news website is still getting unconfirmed and conflicing reports that Premier Amama Mbabazi has been fired.
A high ranking source at the President’s office told us today morning at 2am that President Yoweri Museveni had recieved a letter asking for leave from Mbabazi.
“It’s true Museveni is considering Mbabazi’s request to step down. The pressure is overwhelming. It is no longer inevitable,” a source who sits just a few yards from the President’s office at Parliament says.
The source said Museveni then telephoned Deputy Prime Miister Moses Ali to take over as actig leader of government bussiness in Parliament.
However, we are yet to recieve official confirmation that Mbabazi has been shown the exit to pave way for investigations into reports that he pocketed millions of Euros given to him as a bribe by Tullow Oil.
Information Minister Mary Karooro Okurut has denied the allegations. The NRM Chief Whip David Bahati last night described reports of Mbabazi stepping down as “un true and baseless”.
Observers are soon concluding that Mbabazi has been fired, insisting there is no smoke without fire.
Capital Radio today morning reported about the rumours. WBS Television as well says Museveni has shown Mbabazi the exit.
Our reliable source in State House says Museveni, since the stormy oil debate held two week ago, has been under enormmously irresistible pressure from NRM party members, army leadership and donor cmmunity to sack Mbabazi.
