Evidently, Museveni’s blue-eyed Minister Norbert Mao is finally prevailing over his adversaries within Uganda’s oldest political party.

When his cooperation agreement with Gen Museveni, obliging DP into some strange political relationship with NRM, leaked and became public, there was total uproar among DP diehards many of whom vowed to fight on until the veteran leader from Rwakitura gives up his plans of ever succeeding in obliterating DP.

At some point, the renegades even considered forcefully raiding DP offices and throw out pro-Mao officials. Police had to be deployed to make some arrests and generally stop them. Their demand was that Mao shouldn’t remain DP President since he had accepted Gen Museveni’s Cabinet job. They even tried to rally members of key party organs claiming Mao was in the Museveni deal alone besides a few others like Secretary General Gerald Siranda and Vice President Mukasa Mbidde.

However, the National Executive Committee meeting slated to be held in Fort Portal this weekend has left the anti-Mao faction members split and more divided than ever before. The Fort Portal meeting is ostensibly meant to give a platform to the aggrieved party officials and leaders to articulate their agreement and have the same voted upon.

Whereas National Party Treasurer Mary Babirye Kabanda says the Fort Portal NEC session is okay and should go on, fellow anti-Mao renegades say the same meeting is illegal and being held in bad faith. Saying the same is an opportunity to prepare members to requisition for the National Council meeting during which the Mao deal can be thrown out, Kabanda has even offered to release funding required for the Fort Portal NEC meeting.

Those not flocking with Kabanda on this Fort Portal meeting include Part National Legal Advisor Erias Luyimbazi Nalukoola who has already written to the organizers rendering his legal advice insisting that the same shouldn’t be held.

Nalukoola insists that instead, it’s the National Council meeting that should be convened. Buikwe South MP, Lulume Bayiga, who the anti-Mao renegades chose to lead them in their resistance to the Party President, equally agrees with Nalukoola and doesn’t rule out the same Fort Portal NEC meeting being challenged in Courts of law. Losing money bags Babirye Kabanda to the Mao side, because of differences in approach and strategy, will be a very big blow to those who had hopes of ever obliterating Mao out of DP.
