PRESSURE mounts camp Oulanyah as the Central Executive Committee (CEC), which is the NRM top organ has for the second time refused to give Jacob Oulanyah, the speaker job on a silver plater in today’s hot meeting sitting at State House, Entebbe.
Meeting has been adjourned to tomorrow Sunday at 8am, when CEC is expected to make a final decission before Party Caucus sits.
Oulanyah’s camp had much expectation that CEC would clear their man so that they dont go into an election which is tricky to win. God has however not answered their prayer.
His chief campaigner, former Kiboga district woman MP Hon. Ruth Nankabirwa said Speaker deal was sealed in 2016. But from what transpired in the first CEC sitting on Monday this week, and from what has transpired today at State House, former Government chief whip must have lied.
Rt. Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga one of the contestants is on record accusing Nankabirwa for spreading lies and blackmailing CEC on how the 11th Parliament speaker was settled in 2016 during a CEC meeting.
According to our sources at State House Entebbe, today’s meeting was chaired by NRM Vice chairman Haji Moses Kigongo. Party chairman Yoweri Kaguta Museveni attended the meeting and was listening.
