Moses Kibalama, the man who handed over the National Unity Platform (NUP) party to Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, is in the hands of security for his own safety.
This was revealed Friday by army spokesperson Brig Gen Flavia Byekwaso at Uganda Media Centre.
Kibalama had been reported missing from his home for three days and security personnel wearing military uniform have been deployed at his house since he disappeared on Monday.
He is the founder and former leader of the National Unity Reconciliation and Development.
”What I know is that the security is holding him wherever he is and it is holding him for good reasons. Most importantly, to give him safety,” Byekwaso said.
In response, Bobi Wine said all Ugandans watched the Deputy Spokesperson of the UPDF deny that Mr. Nkonge Kibalama is in their custody.
“Today, the spokesman of UPDF comes out to say that he is being held by security for his own protection. Protection from what?”
“I hope this answers anyone who still had any doubts about who is behind these events and the objective! As always, the regime in Uganda will compromise people and then coerce them into saying or doing very pathetic things. I find it very sad that Gen. Museveni is such a coward who is willing to go to any extent lying to himself that he can stop the PEOPLE! What a pity!”
He added:” Comrades, the duty we have on our hands is one- we must not get diverted. We must not look on the right or the left. We must keep our eyes on the prize.”
