UMA Executive’s move to censure Dr. Oledo
members have asked their president Dr Samuel Odong Oledo to resign after he led a group of some medical practitioners to kneel before President Museveni as he begged him (Museveni) to contest again in 2026.
Dr Oledo’s oral petition was made during the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) Youth Patriotism Symposium at Kololo Independence Grounds in Kampala on December 3.
However, Dr Oledo’s deputy, Edith Nakku-Jolaba and the association’s secretary general, Herbert Luswata say he (Oledo) attended the meeting and made remarks in his personal capacity and not on behalf of the association.
The UMA respects, honours and is committed to service to its members and to the public as an association of professionals promulgated under the laws of the government of Uganda.
The current UMA president attended the particular meeting in his personal capacity but not as UMA and his communications at the meeting were not representing the official position of UMA,” a statement signed by Nakku-Jolaba and Luswata reads in part.
They contend that the association has always engaged with President Museveni through formal, professional ways including appreciating him through their annual awards.
