KAMPALA – The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party has refuted claims that it has printed red T-shirts that it intends to give to the ghetto youth to join the “People Power” movement and later accuse the group of being violent.

The claim was made by Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine on Tuesday in a recorded video before he left Boston.

Bobi Wine has reportedly arrived from the US where he has been receiving treatment following his arrest and detention from Arua on August 13.

According to the party’s Communications Officer Rogers Mulindwa, the party has not printed any T-shirts in connection to the return of Bobi Wine.

“NRM wishes to clarify that the Party has not printed any yellow T. shirts for the Ghetto Boys or any other section of people in connection with the return of Bobi Wine. ” reads part of Mulindwa’s tweet on Thursday morning.

He also said those behind the allegations were propagandists spreading malicious statements.
