KAARO KARUNGI | KAMPALA– President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has told the NRM caucus how he has never backed Jacob Oulanyah or Rebecca Kadaga for speakership but rather supports the decision of the party.

Museveni is the chairman of the Central Executive Committee (CEC) a highest decision making organ of the ruling party.

On Sunday under his supervision, CEC endorsed Hon Jacob Oulanyah as the party’s choice for Speaker.

In protest the outgoing Speaker Hon Rebecca Kadaga vowed to contest on Independent ticket.

The election is slated for Monday, May 24, 2021 at Kololo Independence grounds.

The NRM caucus ratified the decision of CEC as MPs await to vote on Monday. The party also voted for Hon Anita Amongi who will contest for Deputy Speaker.

Museveni while addressing CEC and NRM caucus as he closed the one-day event said he never supports individuals but rather follows what the party decides.
