President Yoweri Museveni has confirmed that Amama Mbabazi is still Secretary General of the ruling party NRM and will not face any disciplinary hearing.

Here below is the full statement from STATE HOUSE:

I have read what was in the papers today regarding the NRM Parliamentary Caucus meetings of Monday and Tuesday, 3rd and 4th March, 2014.  

Those meetings spent some time discussing the rumours, which have been circulating, with a view to ending them and galvanize the cohesion of the Movement.  Unfortunately, the media has put out a lot of distortions purporting to be relaying the conclusions of these Caucus meetings.

The allegation that the Secretary-General, the Rt. Hon. Mbabazi, had been replaced by the Hon. Todwong, for instance, is not true.  The Secretary-General is still the Secretary-General.  However, on account of being very busy as Prime Minister, I, some time last year, appointed the Hon. Todwong as Minister without Portfolio in charge of Mobilization to help the Secretary General run the day to day activities of mass political work.  He is, however, not Secretary General.  The Deputy Secretary-General, Hon. Dorothy Hyuha, was appointed as Ambassador and posted to Tanzania as our High Commissioner. 

On the issue of referring some NRM Leaders to the Disciplinary Committee, this was a misrepresentation because the various levels of NRM, including CEC, are still studying the sources and authenticity of these rumours.

In any case the NRM Parliamentary Caucus did not pass formal Resolutions.  Therefore, the NRM supporters are requested to stay calm and continue with their normal work.  The leadership, under my oversight, is handling all the issues caused by the rumours.

Yoweri K. Museveni
