PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni has said he will talk to his senior advisor on political affairs, Maj. Kakooza Mutale (right), who has vowed to campaign for the retention of the Movement system.
Museveni said he was surprised that Mutale, who registered a group with the Electoral Commission to campaign for a “No” vote in the referendum on the change of political system, has failed to realise that the Movement will remain the same as a mass organisation even under multiparty politics.
Museveni was addressing the 8th Movement National Executive Committee meeting at Speke Resort Hotel Munyonyo on Friday.
He said when the NRA was recruiting fighters and supporters during the 1981-86 bush war, it didn’t care whether DPs, CPs or UPCs joined.
He said when the NRM took power in 1986, it asked Ugandans to join it and millions said ‘yes.’
He said, however, like then when NRM had enemies in the bush, even today, it has critics who should be let to join or form other groups. He told the delegates to mobilise Movement supporters to vote for opening up of political space.
He urged delegates not to fight Movement programmes because they were being propped up by someone with whom they have a quarrel or who back-bites them.
“That someone said this about me. These are not private affairs. You are managing public affairs. It doesn’t matter whether he back-bit you. You also abuse them.... that your mother did this....,” Museveni said to murmurs and muted laughter.
He said political interests of the Movement as an organisation should be raised above personal interests.
