Newsrooms were excited that the country’s most feared and untouchable No. 2 had fallen to the sword of his NRM rivals. Social networking websites particularly twitter went ablaze as the rumour spread like wild fire.

Some tweeps and face bookers excitedly announced they would join NRM if the story was true. But was the gossip truthful? Was any scribe willing to stake his credibility by confirming the rumour? Even politicians were contacting scribes to confirm the story!

It was not until late in the night that I confirmed that the story was mere wolokoso. “It’s not true my brother,” NRM Chief Whip David Bahati assured me.

But the most important question is who started the rumour and why? Al ready observers say Mbabazi’s sympathisers fanned its flames to pre-empt the President. What if Ugandans responded by pouring on the streets to celebrate the downfall of the Premier? Wouldn’t that compel Museveni to swing the axe?

On the contrary, analysts say it’s the work of intelligence to divert attention or weigh the situation and possible outcome of major political decisions! Was Uganda facing a major terror threat given the bomb strikes that have gripped Nairobi?

Only time will answer these questions but what is clear is that there is no smoke without fire. Mbabazi could be on his way out!
