KAMPALA- Several Councilors and other leaders from the National Unity Platform (NUP) have today denounced Muhammad Ssegirinya alias Mr. Updates as their flag bearer for the MP race.
The National Unity Platform vetting committee picked Ssegirinya as the party’s flag bearer at the political expense of Kidandala.
However, today several party members led by their area councilors have called a press conference rejecting the party’s decision and demanding Ssegirinya to be removed from the position.
The councilors say he is ”extremely unpopular” among the electorate given his “nature and character” rendering him incapable.
The division and confusion in the NUP vetting and nomination process has brought distrust to the party with many Ugandans doubting its motive.
