The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Vice chairperson Central region and State Minister for Tourism, Hon Godfrey Kiwanda has claimed that the National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Robert Sentamu alias Bobi Wine is using money to attract crowds on his campaign rallies.
Kiwanda said Bobi Wine paid most of the boda boda riders around town to escort him wherever he goes.
“NUP ferries people from Kampala, and they are paid,” Kiwanda said.
He faulted the Electoral Commission and Justice Simon Byabakama for not preparing well.
“We needed more stringent laws. If candidates were being disqualified for defying the guidelines, they would follow the SOPs,” Kiwanda said.
He said their party presidential flag bearer is the only candidate who is very strict on the SOPs.
“We have some excitement from voters and mobilizers when they see opposition having rallies; they want to prove a point.
If there is anybody who has been constrained so much by COVID-19, it is President Museveni. He used to hold a rally of over two million people, but now he is limited to only 200 people,” he said.
Museveni yesterday concluded his campaign meetings in Busoga sub-region and will today begin engagements in Ankole sub-region starting with Mbarara.
