Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has exposed state sponsored New Vision propagandists where they diverted away from reporting the fact that National Unity Platform (NUP) registered wins across the country in areas where they fielded candidates to reporting otherwise.
Bobi Wine writes:
I am seeing how desperate the New Vision is to support Museveni’s lies. They even failed to do simple maths and calculated 29% as 79%! Yes, you’re a state propaganda tool, but you could be a little smarter.
Meanwhile, we have just finished doing our compilation. We did not field candidates in the vast majority of villages, having introduced NUP to the public two weeks earlier. As they always do, in most cases, RDCs and DISOs just filled in names and submitted them.
The good news however, in all the villages where we fielded candidates, across all regions of Uganda, our candidates won 92.4% of the seats.
This is a challenge to all of us to ensure that in the coming election, not only in the urban areas but in the villages as well, we field candidates for the various positions. They are scared of us – that is why RDCs were intimidating and scaring our candidates not to identify with us.
We are now ready to move!
