KAMPALA– Kampala Central Member of Parliament, Mohammad Nsereko has trashed social media reports that made rounds recently that accused him of having convinced fellow legislator Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi is popularly known as Bobi Wine – not to contest against President Yoweri Museveni come 2021.
While speaking in an interview with NBS TV, Mr. Nsereko asked Bobi Wine’s camp to refute these claims that allege he went to the Bobi’s residence to talk Bobi out of contesting for presidency in the forthcoming elections in 2021 on grounds that Bobi would be given money if he dropped his 2021 presidential ambitions.
Mr Nsereko says he has never been to Mr. Kyagulanyi’s residence and he has no intentions to go there.
“What is there for us to discuss? Am not his relative neither am I looking for political favour,” he said.
Mr. Nsereko says he believes in the opposition coming out to clear any messages among their supporters to avoid divisions among them.
“The genocide in Rwanda where mere utterances of people or even in Germany. Therefore we as leaders, we owe our people a duty of care and responsibility to come out and say, wrong is wrong and right is right,” Nsereko remarked.
The legislator took it to his facebook page and shared a WhatsApp screenshot conversation of him and Mr. Kyagulanyi.
In asking him to create clarity on the issue which the latter seemed to take as a minor issue that is meant to divide the opposition according to his reply.
Mr Nsereko captioned the screenshot with a statement and it read, “As I told you before. Blackmail and falsehoods have no room in these political spaces. As leaders, we have to expose and kick out any form of falsehood and blackmail. Nothing can ever defeat facts or the truth.”
However, the official People Power spokesperson Mr. Joel Ssenyonyi has come out and said they will not respond to minor issues.
“When I took up this position, I said I will major on majors and minor on minors. Things like those are minors; we don’t want to waste time on them. We want to remain focused,” Ssenyonyi said in a statement.
