Museveni and Mbabazi at Kisozi

President Museveni has invited his former Prime Ministers Amama Mbabazi and Kintu Musoke for the upcoming NRM Executive Committee [NEC] meeting scheduled for Friday January 24, 2020 at State House Entebbe.

Mbabazi served as NRM secretary general for 10 years before he fell out with Museveni. He stood against him in 2016 but lost the election.

At the end of last year, he was seen with President Museveni at his Kisozi farm in Gomba district.

The same invitation was extended to former Vice Presidents Dr Specioza Wandira Kazibwe and Prof Gilbert Bukenya.

Bukenya who fell from grace to grass even dared mingle with the opposition and denounce Museveni during the 2016 general elections.

Also invited is former Kampala Central Legislator Hon Francis Babu.

Article 12(2)P of the NRM Constitution gives the National Chairman the right to invite not more than 5 individuals who have made special contributions to the struggle to attend the NEC meeting.

The Rt. Hon. Secretary General Justine Kasule Lumumba confirmed receipt of the names from H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

She made the revelation Wednesday evening while appearing on UBC Television from 9-10pm.

SG Lumumba confirmed to the show moderator Innocent Musinguzi and the viewers that invitations to the five above had already been sent.

“We shall be grateful to receive them as our special guests during NEC meeting”, she added. NEC convenes this Friday in Entebbe.

Meanwhile, the accreditation of all NEC delegates has started this morning at Kololo Airstrip, according to Rogers Mulindwa, Senior Manager Information, Communication & Public Relations.
