What you need to know:

  • Mr Ssewanyana claimed: “We have been suffocated at DP, our places given out to other people without taking us through party primaries and that has disappointed us. We are here to offer leadership to our country but if we are not given a fair hearing, we seek space elsewhere.”

16 more Members of Parliament (MPs) yesterday joined the National Unity Platform (NUP) of presidential hopeful and Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, ahead of the 2021 General Election.
This brings to 21, the total number of MPs crossing from Democratic Party (DP) and the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) to Bobi Wine’s camp after five others joined a fortnight ago.
