President Museveni suspends Speaker campaigns

President Museveni summoned front runners for the NRM speakership race to state House Entebbe over the chaotic nature of the campaigns.

In the race are two competing camps of deputy speaker Jacob Oulanyah and speaker Rebecca Kadaga.

The speaker has accused the Deputy speaker of incompetence and cowardice while the deputy has been responding with remarks that portray the speaker as a liar.

Sources who attended the president’s meeting say campaigns have been halted and all the aspirants have been told to remain silent add CEC will be the final determinant of who is fronted as the flag bearer for the NRM in the speaker and Deputy Speaker race.
