A SUSPENDED Uganda Peopleâ€™s Congress senior official has accused the party president of violating the party constitution for her own interests.
The former party chairman, Patrick Rubaihayo, said Miria Kalule Obote bypassed the proper procedures in suspending him and three others.
â€œThe constitution is very clear. She has no right to suspend any official without the consent of the National Council,â€ Rubaihayo said on Tuesday while appearing on the Talk of the Nation, a weekday talkshow on Vision Voice FM radio hosted by Paul Busharizi.
Rubaihayo and colleagues, Livingstone Okello Okello, Peter Walubiri and Chris Opio were suspended for allegedly attempting to usurp the executive powers of the party. However, they have gone to court to challenge the descision.
â€œIt is true the party president has the powers but the constitution states that after any reshuffle, the National Council must approve. But this was not followed,â€ Rubaihayo argued.
