With campaigns already underway in all but name, President Museveni is far ahead of his challengers; only Olive Beti Kamya’s efforts to change the rules of the game could surprise him. TEA Graphic Nation Media Group
In the shadow of the ongoing turmoil in the major parties, Ms Kamya, leader of the Uganda Federal Alliance, has for 10 months now been leading a quiet campaign to collect signatures for a people-driven referendum to change Uganda’s current constitutional dispensation.
Kamya argues that the solution is to dismantle the power concentrated in the president through devolution.
While political analysts doubt that she will make any headway against an incumbent determined to maintain the status quo, Kamya thinks winning a referendum will be easier than challenging Museveni in an election.
