President Museveni vows to Rule Uganda Even Beyond 2021

P

On Monday 18th March 2019, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni officially recognized and accepted a resolution by the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) Central Executive Committee (CEC) caucus to lead his party and the country into 2021 elections and beyond.

This came after weeks of meetings by NRM members of Parliament led by Hon. Ruth Nankabirwa at Kyankwazi training center who voted Museveni to be the sole candidate of NRM Party during the 2021 general elections where he is expected to face Kizza Besigye and Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi wine.

President Museveni told the NRM MPs who endorsed the resolution during their ongoing retreat at the National Leadership Institute in Kyankwanzi District that it was “an opportunity to add more steps to our mission-driven journey to make our country sustainably invulnerable.”
“I am therefore humbled by your confidence in me, and since I am still very able, I’m sure that together, we shall in the coming years finally deliver an economy that can sustainably deliver jobs to our young people,” he said.

The NRM MPs at a retreat in Kyankwanzi on Sunday approved a motion endorsing President Museveni as the party’s sole candidate in 2021 presidential elections. 
This means there will be no internal competition for the party’s presidential flag bearer for 2021.
The “sole candidature” motion was one of the key recommendations the NRM CEC made during an earlier retreat at Chobe Safari Lodge in Nwoya District at the end of January.

It is also romoured that Hon. Muyanja Ssenyonga and Hon. Sam Lyomoki are some of the NRM MPs who have been banned from these meetings for challenging the resolutions reached.
