She issued a statement through the Parliament Public Relations office saying it is not true at all that she is involved in a power struggle with Museveni.
This comes amidst media attention to the fact that Museveni personally attacked both Kadaga and Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi blaming them for the EALA mess.
After research, it was discovered that Ugandans would prefer First Lady, Janet Museveni and Speaker, Kadaga to succeed Museveni instead of Museveni going back into power. At the same time, they responded well to having Amama as NRM’s flag bearer.
Despite the reports, Kadaga says she is not interested in the power.
The statement denied reports that the Speaker had tried to meet a visiting dignitary, His Royal Highness Prince Abdul Aziz Bin Abdullah of Saudi Arabia during his recent visit to the country, as part of her politicking.
“The insinuation that the Speaker solicits for appointments is belittling and degrading of the Speaker who is number three in order of precedence,” said the statement read to the media by her publicist, Ms Ranny Ismail.
Kadaga is the NRM second national vice chairman while Mbabazi is the party’s secretary general. The two, together with the President and other senior party officials, held a clear-the-air meeting at the President’s country home in Rwakitura on Sunday.
A statement issued by the Presidency after the meeting said the party remains united.
