Robert Kyagulanyi Blames NRM Gov’t Over Sale of Lira Spinning Mill

NUP President- Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu at Voice of Lango FM

Lira (UG) | The Black Examiner – Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu, commonly known as Bobi Wine and serving as the President of the National Unity Platform (NUP), has criticized the governing National Resistance Movement (NRM) for its failure to rejuvenate the Lira Spinning Mill and generate employment opportunities for the people of Lango.

The government privatized the Lira Spinning Mill in 2005, handing it over to Jinda International Textile Cooperate Ltd (JITCO) with the aim of providing jobs for 500 individuals. However, this endeavor ultimately faltered.

During a recent radio talk show hosted by Voice of Lango, President of NUP Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu squarely placed the blame on the NRM government for the collapse of the Lira Spinning Mill, which remains unrecovered.

Bobi Wine also called for affirmative action to support the people of Barlonyo, who endured the tragic massacre of their loved ones at the hands of LRA rebels and continue to struggle with recovery.

He further lamented the high interest rates on boda-boda (motorcycle taxi) loans, the harassment of fishermen on Lake Kyoga by the military, and the poor condition of roads in northern Uganda.

Kilak South MP Gilbert Olanya echoed the need for constitutional reform, suggesting that the electoral commission should be recruited through the civil service rather than being appointed by the president. This change, he argued, would help eliminate doubts about the credibility of elections.
