Unveiling the political wolves in Uganda: The saboteurs, self-seekers within the ranks

By Denis Muteguya

In the turbulent landscape of politics, there exists a breed of individuals who cloak their ulterior motives under the guise of loyal party members. These saboteurs and self-seekers navigate the corridors of power like wolves draped in the skin of innocent goats, preying on opportunities left behind in the wake of their treacherous actions.

Characterized by their penchant for criticizing others while skulking in the shadows, these Machiavellian figures perpetuate a culture of deceit and betrayal within political parties. They operate with a callous disregard for integrity, masquerading as strong cadres while harboring selfish agendas unbeknownst to their peers.

One of the most insidious manifestations of their modus operandi is the systematic assassination of character. Through calculated smear campaigns and backstabbing tactics, they sow seeds of discord and mistrust among party members, eroding the very fabric of unity essential for effective governance.

Nowhere is this toxic mentality more prevalent than in Uganda’s political sphere, particularly within the realm of mobilization. As aspiring leaders vie for support and allegiance, these wolves lurk in the shadows, waiting to pounce on any vacancy left by their underhanded manoeuvres.

A notable target of these machinations has been the hardworking and results-oriented head of the Office of the National Chairman (ONC) SPA/PA Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo Uzeiye. Despite relentless attempts to discredit her, the Chairman of the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party, His Excellency Yoweri Kaguta Museveni Tibuhaburwa, continues to assign her more responsibilities in mobilization efforts.

These baseless accusations against Hajjat Hadijah are nothing but desperate attempts to tarnish her reputation. However, it is crucial to remember that the Chairman of the NRM party is the foremost consumer of intelligence reports. By entrusting Hajjat Hadijah with additional responsibilities, he demonstrates his unwavering confidence in her abilities, disregarding the background noise created by these saboteurs.

Hajjat Namyalo’s track record speaks volumes. Her unparalleled dedication and strategic prowess make her the ideal candidate to lead mobilization efforts for President Museveni’s anticipated victory in the 2026 elections. Her success thus far is a testament to her capability to unify and galvanize support, transcending the divisive tactics employed by her detractors.

The repercussions of the actions of these saboteurs extend far beyond political manoeuvring, infecting the democratic process with a cancerous cynicism that undermines the public’s trust in their elected representatives. As Uganda grapples with the challenges of nation-building and progress, the presence of these saboteurs poses a formidable obstacle to the realization of a truly inclusive and transparent political landscape.

In conclusion, the plague of saboteurs and self-seekers within Uganda’s political ecosystem serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of unchecked ambition and deceit. It is imperative for citizens and leaders alike to remain vigilant against these wolves in goats’ clothing, lest they undermine the very foundations of democracy and progress.
