The founder of the National Unity Reconciliation and Development Party (NURDP) that has since evolved into the National Unity Platform (NUP), Mzee Nkonge Kibalama has run to the media saying they are soon reclaiming their political party from Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine for failure to fulfill his pledge of $5million.

According to Nkonge, Bobi Wine promised him $5 million to take over the NUP party but later he found that he is a liar and he can’t continue dealing with him.

At the end of 2018, the People Power legal team tried to reserve the name ‘People Power’ however as expected, they found that this name had been reserved and flagged so that we could not register it. Since then, they have continued to struggle as a political and social movement advocating for change.

Nkonge avers that a section of NURDP met Bobi Wine after he failed to register a political. “We were 41 members who sat agreed on principle to change NURDP to NUP for villagers or lay men to easily grasp the name and change its leadership but we didn’t sell it to him,” he said.

Mr. Nkonge said as the founder his views are not considered at the Kamwokya based Political Party members and they have since derailed from the right path. “We formed and registered this party in 2004 not knowing that Bobi Wine will come on board, the Party has its constitution which he says was abrogated to suit one individual. Our party was flourishing and it will even without him.”

By now, many Ugandans have already watched a video of Mr. Nkonge Moses Kibalama and Mr. Ssimbwa Paul Kagombe speaking about the affairs of the National Unity Platform.
This is yet another attempt by Gen. Museveni’s regime to derail our progress in the struggle for freedom and democracy.
For several days now, Mr. Kibalama’s phones have been off. That of Ssimbwa has been on and off. When it is on, it is picked by someone who identifies himself as a solider and claims that they have him in custody.
On Monday this week, our legal team went to court. Both Kibalama and Ssimbwa had sworn and signed affidavits opposing the case brought against us and the Party. To our shock, when we got to court, we found another strange and suspicious lawyer who had other two affidavits ostensibly signed by Kibalama and Ssimbwa! The learned judge wondered how the same individuals could sign two contradictory affidavits.
To know how shabby the characters who rule over us are, the same Kibalama who has appeared on TV several times confirming the legality of everything we did to change party leadership, was now writing that we never followed the law! They desperately wanted an injunction to stop our party activities, but the judge refused.
Countrymen and women, this confirms one thing. General Museveni is so scared of us. He has tried countless things to stop us and he is still trying. BUT WE, THE PEOPLE WILL PREVAIL AGAINST HIM.
Secondly, indications are that Kibalama, whose house is now guarded by UPDF has been compromised and coerced into disowning us and claiming that whatever was done to change leadership was illegal.
A few weeks ago, we got intelligence information about what has been transpiring and at the right time, we shall release this information. For now, we shall leave the legal matters to court to resolve. But we are fortified that the law is fully on our side!
I want to use this opportunity to put the political class on notice! Let the political class understand that Ugandans are watching. The common Ugandans will eventually prevail against those who use political positions for trading and self-enrichment.
Everyone who betrays the people’s struggle will get their due regard. Using tax payers’ money; our money, Museveni will definitely bribe so many people, including men of honor, to do very shameless things. But our faith is not in the political class. Our faith is in the people of Uganda.
In a very shameful way, Mr. Kibalama states that we promised to pay him five million US dollars ($5m) for transferring the party leadership. Treat this with the contempt it deserves. We are aware that for a very long time, the regime in Uganda has tried to portray us as people who get lots of money from foreigners!
Gen. Museveni must understand that Ugandans are not fools. They know our struggles as we know their struggles. We are told that their next plan is to plant lots of money (in dollars) and weapons in some houses of our comrades so as to follow through with these lies! That too will fail.
My assurance to all our supporters and Members is that the National Unity Platform exists legally and firmly. We are in advanced stages of candidate selection and other party activities. There is no number of machinations and gimmicks which will save Gen. Museveni from an inevitable and imminent fall. Let him watch the space.
Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert – Bobi Wine
President, National Unity Platform
