The ruling NRM party chairman, President Yoweri Museveni, has summoned his son in-law for a second highest organ meeting at State House Entebbe.
From the scanty details we gathered, Rwabwogo and another youngman from central region will be questioned over their determination to bundle historicals out of office.
“The meeting will try to resolve the differences between Rwabwogo and Matayo Kyaligonza [NRM vice chairperson for Western Uganda],” said the source.
The two NRM members have been embroiled in verbal warfare over the seat pursued at the same time by Maj Gen Kahinda Otafiire, the minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs.
The most recent time the NRM Central Executive Committee (CEC) sat was in June while trying to settle the matter of Amama Mbabazi, the party’s former Secretary General, who has since gone independent.
Tomorrow, top on the agenda will be Rwabwogo versus Kyaligonza who is a member of CEC.
Three days ago, Rwabogo quietly drove to parliament and held a closed-door meeting with atleast 20 NRM party Members of Parliament.
The young turk spent all morning at the August House convincing MPs to vote him come the delegates conference scheduled for late in the year.
“I have worked with number of MPs and they are my friends. They promised to give him their support,” he told press.
According to Rwabwogo, it is not about how old one is but the ideas someone has to bring on the table.
However, conspiracy theorists claim Museveni is clearing the way and preparing Rwabwogo to succeed him.
They argue that for example, after ousting Kyaligonza, Rwabwogo will automatically join CEC ready to replace Museveni and head the ruling party.
He is said to have allies in Rosemary Namayanja Nsereko, the former minister for national guidance and now NRM national treasurer who he recruited in the Uganda Youth Convention.
It was reportedly the same convention through which Rwabwogo brought forth Evelyn Anite, the Youth minister who initiated the sole candidature project.
Even Richard Todwong, the minister in charge of political mobilisation and deputy secretary general of the NRM was also reportedly fronted by Rwabwogo.
We can only wait for the results of tomorrow’s CEC meeting.
