National Unity Platform leader Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has disclosed that their team has finished conducting an assessment following a raid on their offices in Kamwokya by security teams.
Bobi Wine says part of the funds raised by their supporters to facilitate nomination fees for their parliamentary candidates has been taken by police.
“After the criminals left our offices, the team has just finished making an assessment of what has been stolen in broad daylight.
I have been informed that most of our forms with signatures for nominations have been taken away! They have also taken 23 million shillings, part of which was meant to facilitate our parliamentary candidates with nomination fees,” Bobi Wine said in a social media post. Yesterday Bobi Wine said the party had collected Shs117 million in less than a week for nomination fees of their MP flag bearers.
He also says that the party branding materials including posters, banners, berets, t-shirts, pens, notebooks among others have been confiscated.
“Instead of weakening us comrades, let these actions strengthen us and increase our resolve. Seeing the hundreds of soldiers and police officers deployed today is evidence that the dictator is so scared of us. We are not giving up. We are not giving in!” he says.
