President Museveni Speech at 11th Parliament First Sitting


“Recently we bought brand new aircraft for Uganda Airlines. But within no time, it had been infiltrated by corrupt officials. When I got wind of this, I dispersed the top management immediately.

I as the leader of NRM did not say either in private or public who to support for the Speakership. I cannot do that. If you are a senior, you belong to everybody. Don’t take sides.

I thank the people who were initially supporting Kadaga and later changed back to the party position. There was a very strong Oulanyah faction and another strong Kadaga faction. I rang a few people yesterday night and today morning to go with the party decision for Speakership and you can see the results.

I am ready to engage the opposition. I talk very well with UPC and DP. Recently, I also talk to a few FDC members. The people who have refused to dialogue are those of NUP.” President Museveni said.
