PROF.KABWEGYERE HESITANT TO TALK ABOUT RETIREMENT AT 8O YEARS, ACCEPTS MBWATEKAMWA’S DEFEAT
By Wilber Muhwezi Kasibante
Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere Bazaana has accepted defeat from his rival Mbwatekamwa Gaffa Louis.
The 80 year old politician was however hesitant to speak about his retirement and whether he is likely to stand come 2026 when he will be 85 years.
Kabwegyere who had run out of NRM after he was defeated in primaries stood against Mbwatekamwa as an independent candidate with authorization from the party.
He was however defeated again by Mbwatekamwa in the 14th Jan. 2021 general elections.
Kabwegyere has been a politician since 1980’s and he formed UPM with Prof. Kamuntu alongside President Museveni but they disagreed along the way, Museveni continued to the bush, while Kamuntu and Kabwegyere went back to their respective parties of UPC, DP.
After the 1985 bush war, Kabwegyere was the first person to join Museveni as minister whereas Kamuntu was later made a minister.
