The National Unity Platform party secretary general David Lewis Rubongoya has fired back at the ruling NRM party for taking to its media outlets to issue unsubstantiated claims that he is set to be deployed as an envoy with a direct endorsement from president Museveni.

According to Rubongoya, the acclaims are merely state funded allegations meant to extinguish the trust Ugandans have in him and NUP at large. The claims which surfaced on today’s Red Pepper front page had triggered serious concerns within some of the NUP members who nearly fell for the state engineered lies. In a rebuttal, Rubongoya says if a job is all he pursued as claimed in this story, he would not have abandoned his high paying lecturing job at the International University of East Africa.

The biggest joke of all time! The NRM system has survived all these years by sponsoring propaganda meant to discredit, derail, divide and eventually destroy those who oppose it. When they try to compromise you and you refuse, they resort to lies and blackmail. For avoidance of doubt, this story and many such others are false and they should be treated with the contempt they deserve. If our mission was to get jobs, we would never have abandoned our good jobs in the first place to focus on the struggle for freedom and democracy. Some of us would never have opted out of the system and decided to fight it! Our mission is to remove a military dictatorship that has ruined our country. We shall stop at nothing until we achieve that mission. Everything else is a diversion.
