The Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) presidential flag bearer Maj Gen (Rtd) Mugisha Muntu has warned the founder and former president National Unity platform Moses Nkonge Kibalama that the state is going do whatever it takes to ensure that he regrets why he handed over the party to musician turned politician Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.
A few months ago Kibalama handed over NUP to Bobi Wine but a few days ago a video made rounds on social media in which Kibalama was heard saying that the USD5 million (Ssh18.5 billion) deal they had with Bobi Wine to make him the party president failed to materialise thus deciding to repossess what originally belonged to him.
“After a long period of the people power group threatening me and failing to adhere to the memorandum of understanding made between us and the people power group we have made a decision to retain NUP since Mr Kyagulanyi and his group cannot follow the objectives of the party,” said Kibalama the founder of the National Unity Reconciliation and Development Party (NURDP) that has since evolved into NUP.
Reacting to uncertainties surrounding the Kamwokya based NUP, Gen Muntu said that since the political environment for the opposition is hostile, Kibalama must be ready to face alot of complications at all angles until he does what the state wants him to do.
“By the time we formed our party, my friend Hon Kyagulanyi was still in the pressure movement wave (People power) and when they decided to make a party it was impossible for them and the only option was to get another party however they didn’t do due diligence on the foundation of the party so that you know that under whatever circumstances, you do not get the problem,” Muntu said.
