The NRM presidential flag bearer, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has disclosed that his long stay in power is not because he’s hungry for power but rather he has failed to find a suitable replacement for the country’s top office.
While addressing his campaign meeting in Rukungiri Municipality, Museveni said most of his opponents have failed to show their usefulness when he’s still around and have resorted to shouting at him how he has to leave.
“You want me to leave the country into your hands! You want me to go and leave Uganda into your hands! Let me stay around until I see someone useful,” Museveni said.
He singled out his former allies former Security Minister Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde and former army commander, Maj.Gen.Mugisha Muntu as people who failed on their duties but are now shouting at him.
“If you failed to do what I told you, don’t bring your chaos by asking me to go. It is the voters to decide,” he said.
Museveni warned politicians on focusing their politics on tribes and religion. He said NRM will not tolerate such sentiments.
The NRM presidential candidate will today be in Kasese District and later Kabarole, as he begins his campaigns in Rwenzori and Tooro sub-regions.
