The ruling National Resistance Movement is final move to lock out Kyadondo East member of parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine from contesting in the next general election.
According to the latest report, NRM leaders are trying to bring the rule that will subject all those planing to contest in the next general election for political leadership to drug test a move seen to target the Ghetto president.
“Leaders to be tested for drugs before elections, whoever has used these drugs in the last 5 years to be disqualified.” – Cabinet
The NRM diehards have mooted a new deadly move to overcome Bobi Wine and other very troubling political opponents.
In a Monday evening meeting, a group of Ministers and MPs informally discussed the possibility of a private members bill making it mandatory for all Presidential, LC5 and MP candidates to undergo drug/Weed substance abuse tests as part of their nomination requirements by the Electoral Commission.
To show good faith, they have offered to voluntarily have public drug/substance use tests as part of the efforts to mobilize public support for the new proposals they are mooting to the electoral laws.
One minister privy to the plan said that they are being inspired by the Ukrainian example where several would-be strong contenders were disqualified by the the Electoral body on the account of their previous use of prohibited substances in the years leading to the electoral period.
The proposal is to lock out whoever has used these substances in the 5 years preceding nominations. The MPs and Ministers say there will be a small task force to market the same to Museveni this very week.
