I was forced out of Mawogola North MP race – Museveni’s young brother Sodo

President Yoweri Museveni’s younger brother Godfrey Aine Kaguta alias Sodo has surprisingly withdrawn his candidature from the Mawogola North parliamentary seat race, just a few hours to the election set to be held this Thursday 14th Jan 2020.

The decision to withdraw from the race comes after a meeting with member of his family led by the incumbent and NRM flag bearer Yoweri Museveni and some of his campaign agents which was held at State House on Sunday, our sources can confirm.

While speaking to NTV in an interview on Wednesday, Sodo said Salim Saleh, Toyota and Muhoozi Kainerugaba, plus opponent Shartsi Musherure and his father Kuteesa were part of this session before he could come to the decision.

“It’s true I have withdrawn from the race. On Sunday we had a meeting with my family; that’s President Yoweri Museveni, Salim Saleh, Michael Nuwagira alias Toyota and Sedrack Nowomugisha Nzaire and Muhoozi Kainerugaba. Also in attendance was Minister Sam Kutesa, his daughter Shartsi Musherure Nayebare and other family members and it was decided that I pull out,” he said before adding;

“There were allegations from Kutesa that our supporters were attacking each other. Mzee (President Museveni) decided that I should pull out because if we were fighting then there was nothing we were going to do for people of Mawogola North Constituency.”

Sodo was, however, hesitant to tell his supporters to rally behind any candidate.

“For President, I support Mr Museveni, then other positions, I leave the people to vote their best choices,” he said.

It should be remembered that Sodo beat Sam Kutesa’s daughter Shartsi Musherure in the NRM Primaries and the decision to pull out of this election shows how deceitful this year’s polls have been.
