The NRM party electoral commission chairperson Dr. Tanga Odoi has already announced the incumbent presidential candidate Yoweri Museveni as the party flag bearer for the 2026 presidential polls which are still 5 years away.
Odoi made the revelation during an NRM event over the weekend in Kayunga where he made it clear that for as long as Museveni still breathes, he will be the party flag bearer for the presidential election. Odoi insits that all those who are eyeing the same position should not even waste their time as it is already reserved for Gen. Museveni.
“Museveni is here today, and tomorrow. He is our candidate for as long as he has the interest to run,” Odoi said to the amazement of the congregants who had gathered at Namagabi SS Kayunga.
Meanwhile, the NRM party leaders have called on the NEC to consider disciplinary action on the Kayunga woman MP Aidah Nantaba over her overt support for the independent candidate in the looming Kayunga LCV polls. Nataba is said to be in support for a one Magid Nyanzi, an independent candidate. The Kayunga LCV seat fell vacant this year following the mysterious death of Feffeka Sserubogo, a NUP leader whose lifeless body was found hanging on a tree.
