Bobi Wine Refutes Sectarianism Accusations

The National Unity Platform’s (NUP) party president, Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine, has strongly criticized the pervasive presence of tribalism, sectarianism, and segregation. He made these remarks in response to the Uganda Police’s decision to suspend his nationwide campaigns aimed at educating and mobilizing Ugandans about the NUP.

Bobi Wine has refuted claims of being tribalistic, citing his marriage to a woman from the Ankole region, which is the same tribe as the current president. He stated, “I am married to a woman from the Ankole region; if I were tribalistic, I would have chosen someone from my own tribe.”

Regarding the suspension of the party’s activities, he asserted that upon his return from Canada in two weeks, NUP would resume its nationwide mobilization of Ugandans, as they believe it does not violate any laws.

While expressing his gratitude to the Uganda Police Force for providing security and not interfering with NUP campaigns in recent weeks, Bobi Wine emphasized that his party complies with the laws governing Uganda and has no criminal intentions.

Hon. Muwada Nkunyingi, the Member of Parliament for Kyadondo East, reiterated NUP’s commitment to adhering to Ugandan laws and rejected any attempts to label them as criminals. He stated, “We will continue with our programs, and we firmly reject the Deputy Inspector General of Police’s attempts to politicize the situation on behalf of the IGP.”

NUP has mobilized and called on the public to scrutinize state institutions for issues such as nepotism and tribalism. They believe that the government should address these concerns transparently rather than using them as a pretext to hinder NUP’s activities.
