President Yoweri Museveni is just a year old into his five year term as he approaches his 75th birthday but the succession storm has already started within and without his homestead.

Kickstarting the debate was President Museveni's son in law Odrek Rwabogo who wrote an opinion calling for the National Resistance Movement NRM to take action.

Rwabogo is not alone in calling for internal debate about succession but he was also joined by the President's former Private secretary Amelia Kyambadde who yields a lot of power within State House circles.

Amelia even went as far as claiming a delayed debate would cause anarchy in the country.

While appearing on NBS Tv on Sunday, she said: "We need to think about succession in the country."

Amelia went on: "Otherwise we can drive this country into anarchy."

However, bush war hero Gen. Kahinda Otafiire thinks the party has not gotten to a point of tabling debate on succession.

Gen. Otafiire said: "Succession will be debated when we get to the river."

He blasted President's song in law: "Rwabogo is not NRM. Yes he is a member of NRM."

Gen. Otafiire added: "He is entitled to his views. Are they necessarily correct? Not at all."

Also the minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, he said:"That is debatable. Rwabogo is talking about succession but what is succession?"
