Former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi says he no longer talks to President Museveni ever since he contested against him in 2016 elections.
Mbabazi was the former powerful ruling NRM party secretary general and an architect of Museveni’s regime.
In his speech at the giveaway of his niece Bridget Birungi to Andile Ramaphosa on Saturday, Mbabazi hinted that he hasn’t talked to Museveni.
“Despite our political disagreements, our historical bonds will remain,” Mbabazi said at his Kololo home.
He also said that he wanted to ask Museveni, who attended the event in the company of first lady Janet Museveni, if he voted for him during the 2016 election.
“I will get time and ask President Museveni if he voted for me,” said Mbabazi.
Amama Mbabazi also said he is aware that Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda voted and even campaigned against him but that it would not get into their relationship.
Mbabazi who served as the ninth Prime Minister of Uganda from 24 May 2011 to 19 September 2014.
He played an instrumental role in Uganda’s protracted liberation struggle from several tyrannical governments (1972-1986) and is a founding member of the National Resistance Movement, the ruling political party in Uganda.
Mbabazi served as the Member of Parliament for the Kinkiizi West constituency in Kanungu District, a position held from 1996 until 2016, when he ran unsuccessfully for the Presidency.
