President Yoweri Museveni’s son-in-law, Odrek Rwabwogo, has also picked forms at the Kyadondo party headquarters to contest for the position of NRM party Vice Chairman for Western region.
Rwabwogo will be battling the current vice chair, Maj Gen Matayo Kyaligonza.
The ambitious president’s in-law also wants the NRM Entrepreneurs League seat currently occupied by tycoon, Hassan Bassajjabala.
In a July interview with Uganda Radio Network, Rwabwogo who describes himself as a farmer, businessman and NRM volunteer, expressed disappointment with the current leadership of the party, saying, they are not doing enough to promote its ideology.
Rwabwogo accuses some NRM leaders of doing little to spread the party ideology which he says affects the party’s legacy.
Major General Matayo Kyaligonza is Uganda’s envoy to Burundi.
It’s not clear whether the NRA bush war fighter will seek re-election or not.
Rwabwogo has already visited Hoima as part of the countrywide campaign to re-orient the party leaders on the NRM ideology and to discuss current challenges and forge away forward.
Meanwhile, some party leaders seem not in support of Rwabwogo’s bid for the party’s regional vice chairmanship.
One of the leaders who requested to remain anonymous says electing Rwabwogo for the position would mean NRM is being run by the Museveni family.
Rwabogo is married to Patience Museveni.
