The Electoral Commission has rejected Moses Kibalama’s attempts to run a political party parallel to the existing National Unity Platform (NUP) party, which he and others sold to Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and others.
Kibalama and others this week announced that they had launched their NUP with its headquarters in Rubaga Division and dissolved the leadership of Bobi Wine’s NUP.
However, a letter from the Commission to Kibalama and Simbwa Paul Kagombe dated June 21st, 2022, has since nailed the last nail in Kibalama’s coffin and vetoed all his efforts to resurrect and or take over leadership of Bobi Wine’s NUP.
The letter titled ‘RETURNS ON THE DELEGATES’ CONFERENCE SUBMITTED TO ELECTORAL COMMISSION’, reads in part thus;

Please note that the filed returns with the Commission as of 21st July, 2020 show the following office bearers and Executive Committee Members;
