The National Unity Platform’s leadership has retaliated against its Rubaga-based parallel faction, threatening legal action.
This comes after the founder of the National Unity Reconciliation and Development Party-NURP announced that he would take over as party president following a delegates’ conference on May 27, 2022.
Kibalama accused NUP President Robert Kyagulanyi alais Bobi Wine of poor leadership skills, misappropriation of party funds, and breach of the Memorandum of Understanding-MOU they had on Wednesday.
In 2019, Kibalama signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the People Power Movement leadership, led by Bobi Wine, in which he handed over the party to them, and the latter was appointed NUP leader as a result.
Kibalamahas has directed that all NUP elected leaders at all levels report to the new Kabowa offices, failing which they will write to the relevant government agencies, including parliament, disowning them.
However, the NUP Spokesperson, Joel Ssenyonyi, has warned Kibalama’s faction to stop their “fraudulent acts” or face repercussions.
We also issue a strong warning to these imposters that the full force of the law will be unleashed on them for their fraudulent activities “In a brief statement, he said
He also warned that Kibalama had been beaten in a previous court battle after maliciously dragging the party through the mud.
“Previously, the same individuals testified in court that the state had coached them to tell lies against the legitimate leadership of the NUP.” The state clearly continues to use them in the hope that they will undermine NUP leadership and throw the party into disarray.”
The Electoral Commission spokesperson, Paul Bukenya, says the commission has not issued any new certificates confirming the change of leadership in the NUP.
“The Electoral Commission has not issued any certificate of new NUP leadership, but Kibalama and his team have written to us, and we will respond to them on the issue of NUP ownership as soon as possible.” “I believe the certificate they are holding was issued by former EC Secretary Sam Rwakojo,” Bukenya explained.
During the alleged delegate’s conference, Kibalama and his team changed the Secretary General, Treasurer, and Bobi Wine was elected Secretary for Foreign Affairs in the new leadership. (The NUP will fight the Kibalama faction in court – celebrity jazz ug)
