The former Prime Minister of Uganda John Patrick Amama Mbabazi has assured the country that he is still a member of NRM and in the Government.
The former Premier and one-time presidential candidate made the remarks at the sendoff of his in-law, the late Joy Lydia Ntegyereize Zatwoshaho, who is an elder sister to his wife Jacqueline Mbabazi.
The requiem service took place at her home in Mwanjari in Kabale Municipality yesterday morning and was later laid to rest in Nyakasiru village in Bukinda , Rukiga District.
Speaking at the function on behalf of the Government, Mbabazi revealed that people have been telling him of how they expected him to be on the list in the first three cabinet Ministers which was in vain.
He said that he is one of the people who started NRM and can never exit the party and therefore, as long as the NRM is in the government, he is in the government too.
“It is clear that just like many of the people in Uganda expected me in the new Cabinet since I was seen closer to the President on several functions including the swearing in, the President of Uganda did the reverse and rather followed the footsteps of Jesus by choosing fishermen from the local people,” He noted.
