A Serious rift has erupted among the first Family members over Kadaga and Oulanya Speakership race, Spyreports has learnt.
Highly placed security sources reveal to us that the rift in the first Family escalated when some State House officials started openly campaigned for Oulanya.
Intelligence sources say some First Family Members say that Oulanya has been so patient for the last ten years and this is his time to take over Parliament.
“Hon Oulanya wanted to stand against Kadaga last elections but Kadaga rushed to the President and asked him to beg Oulanya step down for her such that she can complete her second term as the Speaker,” says a source close to first family.
The source says that the President accepted Kadaga’s plea and instructed Oulanya to pull out of the Speakership race, which he did.
The source adds that some members are accusing Kadaga of breaching the agreement she made with Oulanya.
However, other members from the same Family are supporting Kadaga saying she has ran Parliament in a balanced way.
“Kadaga should remain the Speaker of Parliament for the third time because she has the majority support from both Opposition and NRM and even the public loves her,” another intelligence source quoted a powerful member of the First Family saying.
Inside source says that Kadaga has also made Parliament a strong arm of Government compared to Edward Kiwanuka Sekandi.
“Kadaga should remain the Speaker of Parliament because her experience is far better than Oulanya and even some NRM Members have bias in Oulanya and incase he takes over Parliament it will not be respected,” says another Source.
