Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | The National Unity Platform-NUP, the opposition political party, has complied with the directive from Deputy Resident City Commissioner of Kawempe, Yasin Ndidde, to reschedule the inauguration of their party headquarters.

During a gathering in Kamwokya, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, the President of NUP, explained that they decided to delay the unveiling of their new party headquarters at Makerere Kavule until Friday. This decision was made to ensure the safety of their guests by avoiding unnecessary security disturbances.

Throughout the entire day, there was a substantial police presence on Bombo Road near the new NUP offices, attempting to prevent access to the premises. The Deputy RCC stated in a letter that they couldn’t provide security for NUP and its supporters due to an event to be attended by President Yoweri Museveni in the same vicinity.

In a communication directed to NUP’s Secretary General, David Lewis Rubongoya, Ndiidde recommended that the party reschedule the event to a later date. However, the party persisted in its determination to proceed with the function.

The venue was already adorned with tents and chairs in the party’s distinctive colors. Nevertheless, during his speech in Kamwokya, Kyagulanyi emphasized that there was no need to jeopardize their guests’ safety when the event could proceed peacefully the following day.
