National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine will launch his 2021 campaign manifesto in Mbarara on Friday, 6th November where he will also officially open the party offices.
This was revealed by the party Secretary General, Lewis Rubongoya on Wednesday, a day after the party’s presidential candidate’s nomination.
“On Friday this week, we will be launching our manifesto in Mbarara City. We will also officially open our regional office in Mbarara that day. We had planned to launch our manifesto here at NUP offices yesterday but you saw what happened; how security operatives fired teargas and bullets at us,” Mr Rubongoya said.
The Kyadondo East MP has also rejected the security guards given to him by Electoral Commission after his nomination yesterday.
“On that note, our president (Bobi) has rejected the security team given to him the Electoral Commission. Those people who were supposed to protect him were instead the ones helping their colleagues (security operatives) to arrest him at Kyambogo after nomination,” Rubongoya added.
Bobi Wine’s plans to launch his manifesto at NUP offices in Kamwokya yesterday after nomination were foiled by security operatives who forcefully arrested, and dropped him at his home in Magere.
