The notable ones include John Nambeshe, Patrick Nsamba,David Kalwanga all from NRM. Others include Latif Ssebaggala and Zaake who were both Independent.
The legislator’s unveiling was on Monday 3 Aug 2020 at the party headquarters in Kamwokya.
News coming out is that other big names are also on their way to NUP.
According to Bobi Wine, when they started the People Power Movement about three years ago. They had discussions about whether or not to register it as a political party.
Their analysis led them to the conclusion that it was both untimely and impractical to form a political party.
In any case, they were alive to the fact that the regime would foil any attempt to register the movement as a political party.
After realizing that they could not stand on people power because its not apolitical party. Bobi Wine decided to merge his people power with NUP.
A move many political observer applauded. We note that Bobi Wine also wants to be with many MPs in parliament.
This explains why he is telling those who want his support to register with his party. Those already attached are Stella Nyanzi. She doesn’t want to loose FDC card but also a people power supporter.
However the NRM MPs who crossed to NUP have always been disgruntled. Therefore that is not surprising.
