KAMPALA – The Kassanda North Member of Parliament, Patrick Nsamba has said that the rebel MPs will not miss the NRM Caucus retreat at Kyankwanzi, saying all matters they agreed to deal with like corruption and embezzlement have all increased and Ugandans should not expect anything new from the retreat.
Mr. Nsamba made the remarks today in a telephone interview while responding to remarks made by spokesperson of the NRM caucus, Margaret Muhanga who told journalists that six NRM MPs including Gaffa Mbwatekamwa (Kasambya County), Patrick Oshabe (Kassanda North), Barnabas Tinkasimiire (Buyaga West) Monicah Amoding (Kumi Woman), Nambeshe John Baptist Manjiya County), and Theodore Ssekikubo (Lwemiyaga County) will not be allowed to attend caucus.
Nsamba said: “Many of us thought it wasn’t necessary because the last time we went to Kyankwanzi, we agreed on many things like dealing with corruption, dealing with embezzlement, but the question is, what did they do after they left Kyankwanzi? Nothing was done, after Kyankwanzi, the corruption continued, actually doubled.”
“So we have no reason of going to Kyankwanzi because we know the best that can come out of Kyankwanzi is to say that Museveni forever, we don’t expect anything meaningful for the people of Uganda that will come out of Kyankwanzi,” he added.
The weeklong retreat is slated to run from March 14 – 20 is under the theme industrialization for job creation with President Yoweri Museveni expected to open the session on March 14.
