President Yoweri Museveni and NRM National chairperson Monday afternoon summoned the NRM Caucus at State House Entebbe over undisclosed agenda.
But to some NRM Legislators who spoke to Nile Post at Parliament before leaving for Entebbe, the meeting was to brief them on the current State of Security in the Country.
According to Manjiya County legislator John Baptist Nambashe, the NRM legislators were summoned by the party chairman to help deal with the pressure that ensued from the arrest of Kyadondo East Legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine and others.
“The pressure that was mounted on the powers that be to drop the charges in General Court Martial and arraign all in civil court including Robert Kyagulanyi. It was global, international pressure including from EAC states,” Nambashe said.
However, Jinja East member of parliament and NRM caucus executive member Moses Grace Balyeku, said the party id not under any pressure for anything.
“There is no pressure on our side as government, we are actually proud that rule of law operates in Uganda and that is what NRM fought for,” he said.
According to Balyeku, the NRM is willing to engage anyone using whichever means they come with. He said that as the party in power, it was no harm to meet and discuss matters pertaining their party or even the country.
“We are the party in power, we shall meet and discuss whatever is on agenda.”
The caucus has met twice in a period of just a month, the last time being in late July when they met to discuss how to win the LC elections.
