Uganda—Speaking during a mobilization meeting for NRM leaders in preparation for the Kayunga district LC 5 by-election, Mr. Odoi said “any NRM member who wants to be the party’s presidential candidate should not waste time.”

“Museveni is here today, tomorrow and in 2026, period. We can’t play around with our country with another5 people. Bobi Wine is an amateur in politics. I know him and I taught him in University,” Spoke MR Odoi to the amazement of leaders in the meeting at Namagabi SS in Kayunga town.

“I have told you this and if NRM chases me, I will go back to the University and teach,” he added.

Mr Odoi , Ms. Rosemary Ssenide, the NRM Director for mobilization, and Mr. Emmanuel Dombo, the NRM secretariat director for communications have camped in the district since last week ahead of December 26 by-election.

Ms. Ssennide wondered how president Museveni got only 32% in the district in the 2021 polls.

“God has given Kayunga a second chance to correct the mistake you committed when you refuse to vote in NRM in the last election. Other districts don’t have a chance to correct their mistake,” Ms. Ssenninde said.

She commended Mr. Moses Karangwa for mobilizing for the party as NRM Secretary-General Richard Todwong asked anti-Museveni elements “to go and rear ducks.”
