Kamuli – After failing to hold several of his planned consultation meetings, Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine, has outsmarted security agencies and found his way in four Districts of Busoga for presidential consultation meetings.
The Busoga meeting was part of Kyagulanyi’s nationwide consultation
phase 1 in which he intends to present his manifesto to the electorate ahead of the 2021 general elections.
Notwithstanding the fact that he was granted a go-ahead by the Uganda Electoral Commission chairman Justice Simon Byabakama in December 2019, Police continue to disrupt Kyagulanyi’s countrywide consultation meetings.
According to sources, People Power presidential hopeful, Robert Kyagulanyi, flanked by Bugabula South pressure group Aspirant Pastor Andrew Muwanguzi, met his most trusted coordinators for a phase 1 consultative meetings ahead of the general gathering.
‘’He is meeting stakeholders including religious, cultural and political leaders. In Busoga Kyagulanyi led by Pastor Muwanguzi traversed Luuka, Kamuli, Jinja, and Iganga for secret meetings and building a core team’’, a source told Red pepper.
Kyagulanyi also joined hundreds of Muslims for prayers and later Muwanguzi led Christians to pour blessings on him.
“I must emphasize that People Power is not a political party. It’s a
movement that unites change seeking forces. We don’t care about your
tribe or religion. And indeed we don’t care about your political
affiliation,” he told participants at Kamuli.
In a telephone interview, Pastor Andrew Muwanguzi confirmed to
Red pepper that Kyagulanyi was in the four districts of Busoga; affirming that the presidential-hopeful will conduct more consultation meetings because they are citizens and mandated by the law.
‘’The people acknowledge that we are headed in the right direction. People
petitioned and prayed that he does not betray them. Most importantly, the electorate has strong concerns in the area of a rotten Health system, unpractical education system, expensive and delayed justice; that leaves them excluded. The people want their country back. Poverty is at its
highest. The sugarcane crisis issue continues to bite,’’ said Muwanguzi.
Efforts to get a comment from Busoga North Police Spokesperson,
Michael Kasadha, were futile by press time, but sources told Red pepper
that a section of security bosses are in trouble over the Kyagulanyi
