PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni and other Ugandan leaders should learn from Kenyan politics by not naming successors, but leave the electorate to choose the next leader.

Serapio Rukundo, the Kabale Municipality MP, advised Ugandans to stop asking Museveni to name a successor.

He also said it was useless for the people to debate President Yoweri Museveni’s succession.

“The Kenyan outgoing President Daniel arap Moi chose and supported Uhuru Kenyatta, but he has been defeated by the electorate which voted Mwai Kibaki. Let us learn from that,” he said.

Rukundo made the remarks on Tuesday while addressing the press in Kabale town.

“If Museveni chose a successor, he would have lost out, especially on the democratic path which he has established,” he said.

Rukundo advised the Government not to accuse critics of being members of the Reform Agenda, a political pressure group headed by Dr. Kizza Besigye, a former presidential candidate.
