With 75% of voters being youthful in Uganda, National Resistance Movement Party is going to reach out to the young leaders who will take over from the old guard.
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni got alot of support from Northern Uganda and WestNile Region which means he will give them big offices in his government.
Rt Hon Jacob Oulanya the current Deputy Speaker and NRM’s Central Executive Committee Member for Northern Uganda is expected to eat big.
“The next Vice President is expected to be Rt Hon Jacob Oulanya as a sign of appreciating Northern Uganda. This will bring Northern Uganda close to getting the Next President”.
President Museveni is expected to return Rt HON Amama Mbabazi not as Prime Minister but as 1st Vice President.
Rt Hons Amama Mbabazi and Jacob Oulanya will help President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni plan for a transition as he rebuilds the party in Buganda Region.
Rt Hon Rebecca Kadaga, the current Speaker is expected to re-run for the same sit though her political calculations or emotions were exposed after President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni lost in Kamuli district.
“Her aides are on record to have gone around bad mouthing the President and indirectly campaigning for Hon Robert Kyagulanyi who defeated President Museveni yet she performed well”.
President Museveni is going to surprise many when naming his cabinet. Even if Kadaga returns to parliament she is going to find an active team from UPDF.
It’s early to predict whether President Museveni will not be on the ballot. He has given Uganda a great foundation that will be able to make it a strong country in the region.
East African Community is on a shanky foundation, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is expected to guide as Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya leaves office.
On the International scene, President Museveni will resist American lobbyists who are seen to be war mongers.
In Libya they Americans assisted in ousting and killing of President Gaddaffi, the country has not been the same. In Uganda, Americans will not be welcome if they continue supporting Robert Kyagulanyi.
