Founder of National Unity Platform (NUP) Moses Nkonge Kibalama has accused NUP President Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu of failing to fulfil the memorandum of understanding. Kibalama also claims Bobi Wine and colleagues are illegally running the party.
“I have no relationship with NUP because when those people came into our political party we made a memorandum of understanding stating the roles each party would play but those people never fulfilled the memorandum of understanding and are now illegally running the party,” Kibalama said.
Kibalama who was speaking on a phone interview further said that Bobi Wine and his team are ill mannered.
“They are assuming the ownership of a party whose core values they have no idea about. I thought they would do a good job and recruit more people in the party but they are instead behaving like NUP is their property. With the way they are running the party they will never succeed,” Kibalama stated.
He also said that he never sold his party to anyone and maintained that Kyagulanyi is just a member in the party who only carried the party flag in the just concluded presidential elections.
He said that while changing the party from National Unity, Reconciliation and Development Party –NURP to NUP, they only agreed to accommodate Kyagulanyi and team as members but not owners.
Kibalama further explained why his fellow co-founders are in court complaining about being thrown out of the party by Kyagulanyi.
“I am Kibalama Nkonge Moses the founder of that NUP party even when I was forming NUP those people were not part of us. They just joined us last year in July yet they plan to throw us out of the party. Parties are never for sale,” Kibalama added.
