President Museveni is today set to hold talks with three National Resistance Movement cadres to chat a way forward after the Central Executive Committee (CEC) resolved that Al-Hajji Moses Kigongo sails through unopposed as candidate for the position of 1stNational Vice Chairperson of the party.
Museveni who is unopposed for the position of National Chairperson and also for Presidential flag bearer, chaired a two day CEC meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday to vet candidates seeking to work with him as Vice Chairpersons.
Sources that sat in the meeting at State House, Entebbe reveal that Museveni took more than two hours to convince the members to allow Al-Hajji Kigongo to go unopposed.
Capt Babu together with businessman Hakeem Asiimwe Lukenge and Presidential Aide in charge of young people Mr Kefa Mafumo had come out to challenge Al-Hajji Kigongo ahead of the NRM national delegates’ conference on August 19th.
However, Babu and Lukenge insist that they are still in the race and will explain to Museveni their reasons for contesting with hope to let them continue to campaign until the delegates conference.
Meanwhile, former Minister without portfolio, Hajji Abdul Naduli was convinced out of the race for the Vice Chairperson for Central region.
