First son in-law, Odrek Rwabwogo, says he is now trying to reach out to the opposition so they can work with President Yoweri Museveni and move the country forward.
“And I respect their decision. I hope to convince them to work with the Movement for a better Uganda in these five year!” Rwabwogo said in a tweet over the weekend.
He was thanking Ugandans for voting back his father-in-law into power.
“Ugandans stood strong against FDC lies and intimidation,” Rwabwogo noted.
He said God delivered “this victory to those who are honest and patient”.
Back in September last year, Rwabwogo was disappointed by the decision taken by NRM party to kick him out of the race for vice chairperson western Uganda.
Rwabwogo was dropped by NRM Central Executive Committee on account of age and inexperience at the Entebbe State House meeting.
Museveni said Rwabwogo had not consulted him before seeking for the position occupied by Maj Gen Matayo Kyaligonza.
“I didn’t step down for anyone. I was simply removed by CEC and I respected the decision of the party even if I disagree with it,” Rwabwogo later told his followers.
“If you belong to an organization, you would know that to stoop is to conquer. We win when we save an institution from unnecessary conflicts.”
