Uganda Peoplesâ€™ Congress (UPC) presidential policy commission chairman Dr. James Rwanyarare has warned the Mengo government against supporting a third term for President Yoweri Museveni.
Addressing a press briefing on Wednesday, Rwanyarare accused the Buganda government of plotting to support Museveniâ€™s bid for a third term in exchange for federo.
He said Bugandaâ€™s recent celebrations, organised by Katikiiro Joseph Mulwanyamuli Ssemwogerere to commemorate the 1966 attack on the palace by former president Milton Oboteâ€™s troops, were meant to win support for Museveni.
Rwanyarare justified the attack, saying it was necessary for uniting the country.
He said the Katikiiroâ€™s representative at Kasubi tombs, Arthur Bagunywa, meant Museveni when he said â€œMengo will support the federal candidate.â€
Rwanyarare said presenters of CBS Radio weekly programme â€œJetuvuddeâ€ distorted facts in order to incite the Baganda against UPC and those who held leadership positions under the UPC government
