Mediation talks: Museveni expected to meet Kadaga, Oulanyah at State House after Cabinet meeting

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is expected to meet speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga and her deputy Jacob Oulanyah at State House Entebbe on Monday.

Kadaga and Oulanyah have expressed interest in the speaker position for the 11th Parliament.

Speaker since 2011 when she took over from vice president Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi, Kadaga launched her third term speaker campaign.

During the launch, she attacked Oulanyah, her deputy for 10 years.

Both Kadaga and Oulanyah are members of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) Central Executive Committee (CEC).

The bone of contention in the ruling party’s race for speaker candidate is the 2016 CEC mediation ‘agreement’ that is said never to have been written.

Museveni is also expected to chair a cabinet meeting after which he will meet Kadaga and Oulanyah.

About an hour ago, Museveni alluded to “official engagements” at State House Entebbe.

“Headed for the Monday Cabinet meeting and official engagements at State House Entebbe,” Museveni tweeted.
