Hours after the NRM Parliamentary Caucus endorsed Among and Tayebwa, Museveni, the National Chairman, advised the duo to work for the people and to think about the mission, and not positions.
“I congratulate the Rt. Hon. Anita Among and Hon. Thomas Tayebwa upon being elected NRM flag bearers for Speaker and Deputy Speaker of Parliament respectively. For us in the NRM, it is not about who, but what is to be done,” said Museveni.
“Therefore, I call upon you to give priority to issues affecting our people, especially wealth creation/poverty reduction. Positions are not the most important thing; the important thing is the mission. We are working for Uganda and Africa.”
