Kibalama asked Muhoozi for security, says army


UPDF army spokesperson, Brig Flavia Byekwaso has made clarifications on allegations by Moses Nkonge Kibalama who today confessed to the judge that he was being held against his will.

On Friday, the now National Unity Platform former Party President, Mr. Moses Nkonge Kibalama just confirmed to court that he has been under detention for two weeks in Mbale, under military protection.

He has asked court to help him regain his freedom.

He says he was summoned by Gen. David Muhoozi, the Chief of Defence Forces who quizzed him about changes in party leadership.

He has disowned the video in which he appeared claiming that he was promised 5 million dollars to change party leadership.

He appeared timid and even confirmed that even in the court room, are security operatives.

He cried several times during cross examination.

“#FreeKibalamaShame upon all security operatives and their bosses who are involved in these shameful schemes,” Bobi Wine said.

He said it is such a tragedy that an old man can be subjected to all manner of intimidation and humiliation for simply handing over party leadership to Kyagulanyi and his compatriots.

“Each day that goes by, they will be exposed one by one until fall with a thud.”

NUP statement:

Mzee Moses Nkonge Kibalama, the former NUP party President cried in court admitting he’s under pressure from state security to antagonise the new leadership of NUP.

Security picked him from his home in Buwambo and took him to the Chief of Defence Forces David Muhoozi, who asked him why he handed over leadership to Hon Kyagulanyi. Looks like the army chief is the one who supervises political parties nowadays!

A shortwhile ago, we’ve learnt that security operatives have ordered Mzee Kibalama to hold a press conference later today at Mossa Courts apartments to retract everything he said in court, they don’t know that evidence has already been admitted in court.

We’ve also learnt that the state is planning to plant certain items at our offices, plus homes of NUP leaders and lawyers, just like they planted guns in Hon Kyagulanyi’s hotel room in Arua. We know all their machinations, but they won’t work.

The state is showing so much fear, but we shall overcome!!
