Their appeal comes a day after Mr Ssekikubo and his colleagues Barnabas Tinkasiimire (Buyaga County) Wilfred Nuwagaba (Ndorwa East) and Mohamed Nsereko who were expelled from the NRM party met President Museveni to chart a way forward.
The supporters threatened to back former Premier Amama Mbabazi if President Museveni doesn't pardon their MP.

Mr Sekikubo and the three MPs were expelled from the NRM in 2013 over alleged breach of Rule 4 of the NRM constitution. The rule bars party members from forming factions within NRM, or promoting the interests of any political party.

"We thank President Museveni for accepting to talk to legislators who were expelled from the party, but if the talks do not yield quick positive results, we will be forced to switch allegiance and back Mr Mbabazi in the forthcoming party elections," said Mr Coleb Mwebaze, a political assistant to Ssekikubo, during a consultative meeting in Lwemiyaga on Tuesday .

Ironically, Mbabazi, who the group wants to support, oversaw the controversial expulsion of the NRM rebel MPs in April 2013, while he was NRM secretary general.

Mr Andrew Gasuza, a councillor representing PWDs on Lwemiyaga Sub-county, said Mr Museveni could not have known Mbabazi's plan to stand for presidency if the rebel MPs had not earlier spoke openly about the infighting within NRM .

"Mr Museveni realised what Ssekikubo's group was telling him after Mbabazi came out to contest against him. Was it bad to alert him?" he asked
This comes days after a cross-section of NRM members in Lwemiyaga County protested against President Museveni's plan to bring back the rebel MPs to the party.

Carrying posters of President Museveni, the NRM members from sub-counties of Lwemiyaga and Ntuusi which make up Lwemiyaga constituency demonstrated in the trading centres of Keizoba and Lwemiyaga accusing President Museveni of not consulting the grass-root NRM members before making a decision to bring back rebel MPs into NRM party.

Presidential press secretary Tamale Mirundi scoffed at those threatening to support Mbabazi, saying they had been hoodwinked.
