Kampala: Moses Nkonge Kibalama, the founding president of the National Unity, Reconciliation and Development Party (NURP) which later metamorphosed into the National Unity Platform (NUP), few days after running to Court and EC seeking to resolve the party’s leadership, has come back to its headquarters Kamwokya with an apology for all his mistakes.
Moses Kibalama who was accompanied by his Secretary Ssimbwa Paul in his letter dated 10/9/2021, reveals that he has withdrawn all the complaints he had lodged against the current leadership of NUP headed by 2021 presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine.
Kibalama apologizes,” We have to inform the general public that we have withdrawn all complaints that we previously made against National Unity Platform and its current leadership.
There were some misunderstandings between ourselves and the party but they have been resolved.
We apologize to all party members and other citizens who might have been offended by our actions.”
Kibalama ‘The Chameleon’
The entire saga started in 2020 when Kibalama and his group handed over National Unity Reconciliation and Development Party (NURP) to opposition strongman, Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine but Kibalama later after being abducted by the army for unknown reasons, came out claiming that he didn’t authorize the change of hands of the party to Kyagulanyi.
He claimed the NUP leadership had failed to pay him $5m as agreed during the takeover but other party members led by Secretary-General, Paul Kagombe said their signatures had been forged to ensure the party is hijacked by Kyagulanyi’s group.
These ran to court to challenge the takeover and during the hearing of the matter before Justice Musa Ssekaana, Kibalama on several occasions contradicted himself a case court trashed and gave green lights to Kyagulanyi’s team.
However, after the court ruling, Kibalama who had earlier been blasted by the High Court as being a serial liar, this very year 2021 dragged the government to court for allegedly coaching him to lie against Kyagulanyi.
“During all this time, I was under the forceful custody of the state agents, my rights and freedoms were violated. I was forced and coached to present thoughts and views that were not my own,” Kibalama said in a suit where he wanted the government to compensate him over the alleged torture. Months later, Kibalama surfaced again in high gear with pretense to revive what he had already lost and now comes back today with apologies for the entire saga.
