With the odds now changing and NRM fearful of having its members torn apart after some legislators strictly showing signs of defying the Kyankwanzi resolution which is likely to be in favour of Jacob Oulanyah, a reliable source reveals that the two party competitors have been tasked with showing the sacrifices they have made for their party.
Whereas Kadaga among other things fronts abetting the passage of the controversial 2017 age limit bill that scrapped article 102 (b) which green lit Museveni’s life presidency, Oulanyah has trashed his senior saying he played a much commendable role in the just concluded general elections.
Oulanyah who accuses Kadaga of being reluctant as NUP and its leader Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine entrenched the youth structures, says he took it upon himself in the Northern Uganda region to personally demobilise the youths linked to the opposition party that had threatened the stay of the NRM party.
Oulanyah reveals that he even used his own money to buy off NUP youths. “I bought off the NUP youth coordinator Olanya Olenge Tony, I inspired the raid on NUP Gulu offices. What haven’t I done for the party?,” Oulanyah is quoted to have asked. “My results are visible. Our presidential candidate won in the entire region while in Kadaga’s Busoga, because of her selfishness, our candidate lost to NUP,” Oulanyah adds.
In fact, a source knowledgeable with NRM CEC developments says Kadaga is being castigated for failing to tame the dominance of Bobi Wine in Busoga where for the first time Museveni was massively rejected by voters. Oulanyah on the other hand is being considered for his aggressiveness and ability to demobilise NUP as he exhibited in the concluded general elections.
