Former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi has lauded his National Unity Platform party for feeding the poor during the lockdown.
“I am very grateful and proud of all NUP leaders at different levels who have chosen to support our people during this tough period,” said Bobi Wine who is still on a US tour.
He said many leaders have been giving out food relief to starving constituents and for this “we are grateful”.
“I have learnt that following these acts of charity dominated by NUP leaders, the regime has come out to ban giving out of food relief.”
He said this is exactly what they did during the last lockdown, when they launched a drive to support the people in different areas.
Some leaders like Hon. Zaake were arrested, tortured and detained simply for giving out food support to starving citizens.
It is well known that the promised 100,000 to desperate citizens, as small as it was, has not reached even 1% of the deserving citizens, Bobi Wine noted.
“When leaders find ways of helping our people, even while observing SOPs, the regime scared to the teeth comes out to ban this assistance.”
“There is every indication that the people of Ugandans are completely on their own. There is every reason to fight on until the citizens free themselves from humiliation.”
