President Yoweri Museveni has recommended top party bigwigs for executive seats in the NRM organ, Central Executive Committee [CEC].
Among them include; Maj Gen Kahinda Otafiire, Prime Minister, Ruhakana Rugunda, Deputy Prime Minister, Gen Moses Ali, Defense minister, Chrispus Kiyonga and Oleru Huda Abason, the Woman MP Yumbe District.
The group was recommended by the president who is also the party chairman at the National Executive Committee [NEC] meeting held at Kololo.
They are expected to take permanent seats at the CEC.
Earlier, NRM members had suggested that Hon Kiyonga steps down for other people to serve in the CEC.
“Let one of the historicals from the West step down for the good of the party for equal representation,” they were heard saying.
“We, the diaspora have been advocating for a position in the CEC and am ready to serve,” pointed out a one Florence Kiremera.
After the meeting, the president and members headed to Namboole national stadium for the last day of their delegates conference.
