SIR — I wish to comment on your ‘Corridors of Power’ article entitled “Nsambu’s sympathy” published on Monday.

Mr Nsubuga Nsambu’s sympathy for me is intriguing. You said we are at loggerheads with each claiming the rightful presidency to the Conservative Party. I do not know of the existence of such a claim.

In this multiparty dispensation, one does not become a party leader by assumption. There are guidelines and laws which political parties follow in determining who should lead them.

For example, much as I am a presidential aspirant, I cannot at anyone moment claim to be the President of Uganda. In the Conservative Party history with which I am sufficiently conversant, it is only Mr Mayanja-Nkangi and I who have ever been elected to office through a Delegates Conference.

Throughout Mr Nsambu’s stay in office, he was an Acting President General of CP. in the Delegates Conference in which I was unanimously elected President General of the party in December 2005, Nsambu never featured anywhere as a contestant.

Where then does he get the authority to relate himself to the leadership of CP? With reference to Article 3(4) of the Constitution, The New Vision and I have a duty to ensure that the laws of Uganda are followed and respected. Your continued reference to Nsambu as a CP leader even in joking, negates such laws.

Please advise Nsambu to cause another Delegates Conference if he wants to remove me from office.
