Ever calm and unnoticed Vice President Edward Ssekandi Kiwanuka has been tipped to replace President Yoweri Museveni.
Edward Ssekandi happens to be Bukoto Central MP and also doubles as a senior NRM cadre who has been in parliament since the Constituent Assembly.
The 77year old humble politician replaced Gilbert Bukenya as Vice President in 2011 having served as Speaker of Parliament for a decade.
Ssekandi has been tipped for presidency by the Senior Presidential Advisor on the media, John Nagenda who was on Monday appearing on NBS Television’s Morning Breeze programme.
Nagenda said that it is unlikely that anyone outside NRM circles can be president after Museveni. He added that he would not mins Ssekandi replacing Museveni for at least 5 years.
“I would not mind Edward Sekandi taking power for five years because he would listen to Museveni. He is a Muganda, a Catholic and he will have brought a new face to the presidency. I think he would do a good job,” Nagenda said.
Nagenda scoffed at Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine saying the youthful legislator is still too immature to run the affairs of any country.
“Mugisha Muntu was a reasonable leader of the army and he is well spoken but I would not expect him to make a good leader. Dr. Kizza Besigye has stood four times, losing very easily every time and bleating that he was cheated. I believe Bobi Wine is a good singer but to become president maybe in 20 years if he starts now,” Nagenda said while appearing on NBS Television’s Morning Breeze programme on Monday.
He added, “Any person who thinks that Bobi Wine could run a country must be mad.”
