Suit against Museveni aimed at disorganising party, says NRM

12 November 2014, 16:39 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - The ruling party in Uganda, National Resistance Movement (NRM) has rubbished the case against Museveni's sole candidature that was taken to east African court of justice by some Ugandans.

The Minister for Presidency, Frank Tumwebaze, has appealed to NRM supporters not to be diverted by the ongoing attempts by the group of people that petitioned court to disorganise the party.

The Minister said, ''There is a group of people who went to east African court of justice challenging the sole candidature of President Museveni. These are being used by some individuals who are desperate.''

He said that whereas the petitioners went to court challenging Museveni's sole candidature, this was mthe choice of NRM MPs and therefore no one can go to court to stop them from expressing their opinion.

During a meeting at Kyankwanzi early this year, ruling party MPs endorsed Museveni as sole party candidate for 2016 presidential elections.

Tumwebaze said the party is still strong and ready to host its delegates’ conference as planned.

He said those who went to court are wasting time because NRM hasn’t stopped anyone from running.

One of those against Museveni standing alone as party candidate, Amon Wasajja said, ''I support those who went to court because the MPs never consulted us before endorsing Museveni as sole candidate.
