A section of the public including top politicians were surprised to see the National Unity Platform leader fly to Belgium with wife Barbie Kyagulanyi and personal friend Nubian Li as part of the delegation to meet the European Union Parliament to highlight the issues of the ever detoriating political climate in the country especially the torture of political victims.
Kyagulanyi was also accompanied by the party’s secretary General David Lewis Rubongoya.
However many thought his visit would have made more sense if he flew together with some of the tip Opposition leaders like the Leader of Opposition Hon Mathias Mpuuga to assert more on the issues of bad political atmosphere considering that he is one of the best brains in the party.
To many, Kyagulanyi looked like he had gone on vacation with his family and close friends something that has sent mixed feelings among some of his supporters.
“What had Nubian Li really gone to do at the EU Parliament? Was he escorting his friend or had any issues to articulate ? One of the NUP MP said whose name can not be mentioned for purpose of anonymity.
Kyagulanyi was also attacked by the government chief whip Hon Thomas Tayebwa who asked as to whether Nubian Li and Kyagulanyi’s wife were the best heads to head to the EU Parliament if they really had to say anything serious there.
“When the European Parliament asked NUP to go and present on the issue of torture, @HEBobiwine took his wife and brother with him. We have a Leader of Opposition and many capable leaders who would have accompanied him there. Like I said, I pity @MathiasMpuuga.”
