Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine, the opposition leader for National Unity Platform has urged his party members of Parliament (MPs) against betraying their voters.
Robert Kyagulanyi has made his first public appearance since 14 January elections after which he was put under house arrest for close to eleven days until Monday when High Court ordered the military to vacate his home.
In a meeting held at his premises in Magere on Tuesday morning, the NUP former presidential candidate Robert Kyaulanyi SSentamu addressed the 61 NUP MPs-elect from various constituencies.
Speaking to the elected legislators, Kyagulanyi advised them to be vigilant about people’s needs who have entrusted them with power and so make sure that the voice of the supporters is represented in Uganda’s 11th parliament.
” The regime is going to give you money. You must have heard Museveni saying that he is going to finish our group. He is going to give you ministerial positions and if you refuse, they will intimidate you, but please comrades, do not disappoint our people,”
Robert Kyagulanyi said.
NUP president added that now than never before, there is a generational task to bring an end to the 35-year-old rule of President Yoweri Museveni hence asked the NUP elected MPs not to relax in their positions.
” We have a duty as a generation and you are the commanders. People chose you because they saw hope in you. I want all of you to be Kyagulanyis wherever you are.”
Additionally, Wine revealed that he has a lot to share with the elected MPs without the media presence and that they will be engaged about their next phase in the struggle.
About the recently concluded presidential ballots where Kyagulanyi was second with 34% in comparison to President Museveni’s 58% according to the results declared by the Electoral Commission chairman, Justice Simon Byabakama, the NUP former presidential candidate re-affirmed that he won the elections and that he will exploit all legal and non-violent means to challenge the results henceforth.
