Kampala: Arua Municipality Member of Parliament Kassiano Wadri has crossed from Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and People Power Movement, a pressure group to join the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) led by Rtd.Gen.Mugisha Gregory Muntu.

Wadri, a strong confidant of Kyadondo East legislator and now leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP) Party Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine made the public move on Thursday 30, July, 2020, at an event held at the party headquarters on Plot 87 Buganda Rd, Kampala.

“I am over joyed once again to make ANT become my new home. We traversed this country all the way from Arua to North, to East and West testing waters to establish this Party. We were like in a wilderness. Am happy for going through this turbulence,” Wadri said.

The Arua legislator regretted for having not joined with fellow legislators Paul Mwiru and Gerald Karuhanga, revealing that it was because he was imposed for over a month.

“Don’t underestimate yourself, move out and do something. Many people are warming to take up various leadership positions but am happy that Muntu will go through the nomination as others will fail. People are crossing over to this party because of its mission and core values of liberating, transforming this country,” he said.

He recounted that he met Gen Muntu in 1980 while at the university and later joined the National resistance army under which toppled the late Apollo Milton Obote’s government and is sure that the Party under Muntu’s leadership will win the presidential seat come 2021 general elections.

He revealed that he was part of the group which didn’t believe in internal democracy in the forum for democratic change (FDC), a party they subscribed to with Muntu and because of that reason, he ran on an independent ticket in the Arua bi-elections a seat he won.

It’s worth noting that Kyagulanyi was instrumental in the Arua 2017 bi-elections that brought Wadri into leadership, a campaign that ended with the murder of Kyagulanyi’s personal driver Yasin Kawuma and many more dispacable atrocities meted unto the opposition members in the eve if the by election in Arua. Infact,Bobi Wine and his team almost lost lives. Up to today,they have permanent scars on their bodies courtesy of their resolve to protect Wadri’s win.
