NUP’s Kyagulanyi is our next target – Anite after Mao joins NRM

State Minister for Finance for Investment and Privatization, Hon Evelyn Anite has laid out claims that their next prey as the National Resistance Movement (NRM) is the National Unity Platform (NUP) leader, Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popularly know as Bobi Wine.

She took to her Twitter page to congratulate DP president Norbert Mao for joining the winning bus. Further, she added that Bobi Wine will be next on their menu of poaching.

Mao has been receiving a lot of backlash after being appointed the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs. After meeting with Museveni earlier this week, Mao was consequently ordained the Minister of Justice which has been vacant ever since the new cabinet was named after the 2021 General elections.

Mao in his defense has reiterated how he hasn’t joined the ruling party. He’s just helping to avert a boiling pot of violence that is obvious after Museveni’s rule comes to an end.

He’s therefore the ‘John the Baptist’ meant to prepare the way for a new Uganda. Mao also defended his alleged defection by saying that until then, he was the only DP leader who hadn’t served in the ruling government.

Over time, Museveni has poached the key opposition figures to his side a thing that has weakened them the more. The likes of Beti Olive Kamya, the late Al Hajj Nasser Ntege Ssebagala, current speaker of Parliament and the late speaker Hon Jacob Oulanyah among others were all at one time opposition.

DP has been predicted to follow in the footsteps of UPC which had its president Jimmy Akena sign a partnership with NRM. Just like Mao, Akena said that UPC was still an independent party. However it can be counted as one of the defunct parties right now.
