Cavendish University law student, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has lost the National Unity Platform (NUP) party to its founding members. The original founder of NUP, Moses Nkonge Kibalama, has disowned the second year law student and People Power leader for failure to clear $5M, an equivalent of shs 18 billion which he bought the party.
Kibalama said he and other partners founded the party in 2004 under the name “National Unity Reconciliation and Development Party(NURP) without knowing that the likes of Kyagulanyis would emerge and take over its leadership.
He said that while negotiating with People Power clique, Kibalama left out other influential original founders who later felt aggrieved and went to Court. Kibalama also added that him and Bobi Wine agreed to change the name from NURP to NUP for easy pronunciation.
“After a long time the People Power Group threatening me and failing to adhere to the memorandum of understanding made between us and people power group we have made a decision to retain NURP since Mr Kyagulanyi and his group cannot follow the objectives of the party,” he remarked.
“We were promised something like $5 million and other pleasantries, but up to now we have not seen anything. All we see is excitement. We have therefore decided to take back to our party,” Kibala said.
He further said that he has been intimidated by People Power supporters. Watch the video below;
