National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has this afternoon finalised a high level closed-door meeting to speak about transition in party leadership, state of injustice in the country among others.
Top NUP leaders who escorted Kyagulanyi included; Leader of Opposition (LoP) Mathias Mpuuga, the Butambala County MP Muwanga Kivumbi who also doubles as Leader of Buganda caucus in parliament, Flavia Kalule Nabagabe the leader of NUP women wing and the speaker of KCCA Zahara Luyilika .
Deep throat sources said that top of the conversation was the issue of Buganda’s involvement in national issues especially what they called the continued abduction of party leaders.
Sources also told this publication that Mr Mayiga and Bobi Wine held a one-on-one meeting which discussed the transition of leadership in parliament as the term for the party leadership nears end.
As some of the discussions went on, sources intimated this publication that Mr Mpuuga stormed out of the meeting and drove away.
News 24/7 could not independently verify the reason for this almost unceremonious departure.
After the meeting that lasted hours Bobi Wine addressed the media urging Mayiga to speak up against the injustices that have been ongoing since 2020 before, during and after 2021 elections.
“We’ve had a private chat for a couple of hours we’ve talked about many things ,the pleasant and of course the unpleasant but key amoung the things we’ve talked are the injustices that are ongoing ,the abductions of citizens especially here in Buganda. The rampant land grabbing that is ongoing here in Buganda and many other things and moving forward we are hoping to hear an even firmer voice condemning such injustices against people of Buganda and Uganda,” Bobi Wine said.
Mr Mayiga encouraged the opposition leaders and politicians to form a dialogue which will enable them listen and find solutions to the problems affecting the people they lead.
“Bitterness and agony cannot settle us down as a country, if we cannot listen to each other it will be very difficult to experience social and economic growth and transformation. It may be difficult to realise middle income status. So we need to dialogue as Ugandans, we need to listen to each other we need to patient with each other,” Mr Mayiga said after the meeting.
He added, “There’s need for the rule of law, because the rule of law is the basis of justice and justice is crucial in the co existence and implemententation of government policies .It is important that we encourage the rule law is important that we observe and we respect the law. It is important that we dialogue and respect for another.”
