    National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi, commonly known as Bobi Wine, has further continued toissuea stern call for the resignation of his former colleague, Hon. Mathias Mpuuga, from his position as parliamentary commissioner. The demand comes in response to Mpuuga's recent accusations against the party and its leadership. In a lengthy statement, Kyagulanyi criticized Mpuuga's refusal to step down, labeling the controversial Shs 500 million 'Service Award' as an act of blatant corruption within the party ranks.

    National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi, commonly known as Bobi Wine, has further continued to issue a stern call for the resignation of his former colleague, Hon. Mathias Mpuuga, from his position as parliamentary commissioner. The demand comes in response to Mpuuga's recent accusations against the party and its leadership.

    In a lengthy statement, Kyagulanyi criticized Mpuuga's refusal to step down, labeling the controversial Shs 500 million 'Service Award' as an act of blatant corruption within the party ranks. He dismissed Mpuuga's accusations of NUP operating as a family affair, asserting that mere rhetoric would not alter the reality of financial impropriety.

    The rift between the two leaders escalated further during Mpuuga's appearance on Central Broadcasting Service (CBS) radio, on Saturday mid-morning where he defended his acceptance of the controversial funds. Despite admitting to not yet receiving the first installment, Mpuuga justified his entitlement to the financial rewards, citing his former position as Leader of Opposition until his dismissal last December.

    In a scathing critique, Mpuuga accused Kyagulanyi of exhibiting dictatorial tendencies and raised concerns about his suitability for state power. He questioned Kyagulanyi's leadership capabilities, describing him as inexperienced and recreational, unfit to address the multitude of issues facing the nation. Mpuuga also alleged that Kyagulanyi's primary concern is preserving his position as party president, perceiving any dissent as a threat to his authority.

    The escalating tensions within NUP highlight the deepening divide between key party figures and underscore broader concerns regarding transparency and accountability within the political organization. As the confrontation intensifies, the future trajectory of NUP and its leadership remains uncertain, raising questions about the party's ability to navigate internal discord while maintaining its political influence.

    IN SUMMARY, THIS IS WHAT BOBI’S LENGTH STATEMENT SAID

    In light of recent revelations regarding the allocation of 500 million shillings to Hon. Mathias Mpuuga and others, it is evident that this action represents a flagrant abuse of power, corruption, and a betrayal of public trust. The meeting of the Parliamentary Commission, where these allocations were made, occurred in May 2022, following the unjust removal of Hon. Zaake from a similar position. Hon. Mpuuga, upon admission of the authenticity of leaked minutes, initially expressed remorse and apologized for his involvement. However, subsequent actions, including the failure to step down as advised, raise serious concerns.

    The allocation of such a significant sum of taxpayer money without justification, legal authority, or transparency is a clear violation of both ethical standards and legal statutes. It undermines the principles of accountability and integrity that should guide public officials. Furthermore, the lack of consultation with the party leadership and the clandestine nature of the negotiation process only serve to deepen suspicions of corruption and unethical behavior.

    In a country where citizens have long suffered from the effects of government corruption and fiscal mismanagement, such actions by elected representatives are particularly egregious. They not only betray the people's trust but also perpetuate a system of patronage and self-enrichment at the expense of public welfare.

    Therefore, it is imperative that Hon. Mpuuga takes responsibility for his actions, acknowledges the gravity of the situation, and takes appropriate measures to rectify the damage done. This includes issuing a public apology, stepping down from the Parliamentary Commission, and cooperating fully with any investigations into the matter. Only through such actions can he begin to regain the trust and respect of the Ugandan people, and demonstrate a genuine commitment to the principles of transparency, accountability, and good governance
