Kampala: The latest news coming in indicates that Ruhinda North MP Thomas Tayebwa has decided to step aside for Anita Among to take the deputy speaker position for the 11th parliament.
Tayebwa had announced yesterday that he would challenge NRM’s preferred candidate for the deputy speaker position as an independent candidate after losing to Among in a vote by the caucus of the NRM on Sunday evening with 149 votes to Among’s 168 votes.
As we write this, MPs are filling up Kololo ceremonial grounds to vote on the next speaker and deputy however, sources close to Tayebwa say he has quit the hotly contested race in favor of Among.
According to sources, Tayebwa reached the decision after a high-level secret meeting by party big wigs with President Museveni in attendance.
