A group of Ugandan ruling party MPs have paid a visit to President Yoweri Museveni to “seek the party’s forgiveness” for previously “opposing certain party positions”.

President Museveni posted a series of photos on Twitter of the meeting at State House in Entebbe, near the capital, Kampala.

“The party’s central executive committee resolved that for the party’s cohesion and discipline, we interact further and guide these MPs,” the 75-year-old president said.

He also urged the MPs to avoid the politics of ethnicity and identity

Uganda is set to hold general elections in January 2021 when Mr Museveni is expected to seek a sixth term in office.
