KAMPALA – Several MPs, mayors and other contestants were on Monday unveiled as members of the National Unity Platform (NUP) party headed by Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine.
They include two former NRM rebel MPs Patrick Nsamba Orishabe (Kasanda North) and John Baptist Nambeshe (Manjiya County), and Francis Zaake (Mityana Municipality).
Others are Makindye Division Mayor Kasirye Nganda Ali Mulyanyama and his Nakawa counterpart Ronald Balimwezo Nsubuga. Kawempe Mayor Dr. Emmanuel Serunjogi has also joined NUP.
Speaking at the event at the People Power offices in Kamwokya, Bobi Wine said this is just the beginning of the party’s plan to become the biggest opposition party in the country.
“This is just the beginning and many more MPs are going to be coming here to declare their defection, membership and allegiance to NUP,” Bobi Wine said.
“We want to become the biggest opposition party now and not 2021. Let’s keep mobilizing the rest of the sitting incumbents to come to Kamwokya and join us,” he added.
