NUP Desists from Joining New Opposition Pressure Group


NEWS-The leadership of the National Unity Platform(NUP) has said whereas they support the idea, they will not join the People’s Front for Transition(PFT), a new pressure group headed by Dr. Kizza Besigye with an aim of ousting President Museveni.

According to Rubongoya and other NUP leaders it is not about joining the new opposition pressure group but rather supporting it that matters.

New deputy party spokesperson, Alex Waiswa Mufumbiro said, “We may not join but we definitely have to support all efforts of removing a dictator.”

Since the launch of the new opposition pressure group, many have said both camps from Kamwokya(NUP) and Najjanakumbi( PFT) don’t see eye to eye with each other since this is a battle for supremacy.

However, speaking to journalists yesterday, Rubongoya dismissed reports that they are clashing with the leadership of the new opposition pressure group.

He insisted that whereas they have not joined PFT, they support its aim of ousting the current government.

The development comes on the backdrop of comments by Dr.Kizza Besigye, the chairperson of the newly formed opposition pressure group in which he said NUP had developed cold feet on the new front to oust the current government.
