CONSERVATIVE Party (CP) President Jehoash Mayanja Nkangi has said President Yoweri Museveni should retire if he does not grant Buganda federal status.

In an interview in his office in Kampala on Friday, Nkangi said, “You cannot refuse to give people what they want and keep on leading them. This is a sign of promoting dictatorship.”
Nkangi said CP would endeavour to initiate, promote and enhance the sharing of power between the region and the centre so as to reduce monopoly of power.

He said the party would be registered in two week’s time. However, the breakaway faction, led by Lukyamuzi, has appointed Nsubuga Nsambu leader of the party. Lukyamuzi claims the two factions reconciled and agreed on the interim leader.

Nkangi dismissed the claim and described Lukyamuzi’s action as leadership by decree, adding, “Tosobola kutambula n’omuntu mukubo erimu nga temukiriziganya (You cannot walk with a person on the same road when you don’t agree on certain issues). Since 1996 Lukyamuzi’s has been a breakaway faction.”

He said he had reconciled with Lukyamuzi in principle, but not in details. “Our differences will be ironed out so that we can work together for the good of the party and the country.”
Lukyamuzi said the party would promote an army of a national character, recruited on a professional basis from all the regions of Uganda.

He vowed to make protection of the environment a national issue, adding, “We shall initiate and implement policies and laws which promote Uganda’s natural environment and biodiversity.”

Lukyamuzi announced that on March 4 at 2:00pm, CP would hold its first public rally in Nakasero.

Nsubuga Nsambu has announced that by early March, grassroot recruitment for the party will have started.
