National Unity Platform presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu also known as Bobi Wine has said that President Yoweri Museveni resorted to spreading homophobia as a campaign strategy, because he could not explain his thirty five years of administering Uganda.
Kyagulanyi added that President Museveni has also tried to portray NUP as a violent group, so that he can justify his violence towards them.
Kyagulanyi made these remarks while addressing his supporters on a Facebook Live Video, Sunday evening.
“(President) Museveni can not make any point. He can not explain his 35 failed years of administering Uganda but we does is tell lies,” Kyagulanyi said.
“All he will say is that we ate being funded by homosexuals and foreigners to demand our freedom and justice or they will call us tribalists,” Kyagulanyi added.
Kyagulanyi said that if there is anyone promoting tribalism in Uganda, then that is President Museveni and not him, who talks about it.
” We have traversed this country but all the DPC’s are coming from the same area. It makes the (President) Museveni regime really look ugly. He loses all the moral authority to talk about tribalism,” Kyagulanyi said.
Kyagulanyi said that NUP and himself condemn all sorts of tribalism and those who practice it.
” The reason why we are called the National Unity Platform is because we believe in National Unity, ” Kyagulanyi said.
The NUP presidential hopeful also reiterated that all his campaigns are funded by Ugandans in Uganda and abroad, who he thanked for supporting their party activities since they started their campaigns till date.
Kyagulanyi will on Monday campaign in areas of Lugazi and Mukono.
