Minister Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng who declared to the masses that Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has been successfully nominated as a presidential candidate called upon everyone to vote for him come 14th February 2021.
“Dear President Yoweri Museveni, we need time if we are to go, give us like 2-5 years. And when we are going, please let them compensate us with a reasonable amount of money,” read one of the placards.
She, however, said that the decision was not a result of family pressure, but an afterthought based on the advice of the senior leaders of the National Resistance Movement. Kansiime had been nominated as an independent candidate after withdrawing from the NRM primaries that were eventually won by Annet Katusiime Mugisha.
