If you are well versed with the twitter streets, then you know that there exists the king of Uganda Twitter Community who is a die hard supporter of People Power/NUP. Patrick Kanyomozi a sports journalist has been vibrant in defending people power with an enthusiastic spark. The latest to face his wrath is controversial and motor mouthed Andrew Mwenda who has recently joined people power/NUP and seeks to stand as a president in the party.
In today’s Media Round Table show on NBS Tv, Andrew Mwenda confessed that if he happened to go to Kamwokya at the people power/NUP secretariat, the people there would chase him and promised that he would bet all his inheritance for a try. When he turned up today morning, he was surprised by the tremendous hospitality exhibited by the people at the party headquarters. He went ahead to pick forms for party president and flag bearer in order to challenge its principal Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu.
This has however attracted controversial sentiments since Andrew Mwenda is well known as a Museveni regime sympathizer and his move is aimed at distracting party agendas. On the same show, Andrew Mwenda said that he was going to vote Mugisha Muntu in the forthcoming 2021 elections which makes one wonder why he should even think of joining another party yet he already has a choice on the ballot.
According to Patrick Kanyomozi’s tweet, he says that NUP lost Full figure but her position has been replaced by Andrew Mwenda, a hooligan who is more educated this time.
His motives aside,had NUP/People Power been as intolerant&radical as M(7+2)'s various paid-for opinions insinuated,he wouldn't have been allowed anywhere near party colours. Only challenge,PP lost Full Figure but has now been replaced by another hooligan,this one more educated. pic.twitter.com/uRLRIzkSLI
