Robert Kyagulanyi‘s presidential ambitions are likely to stall. This is after a group of people claiming to be the founders of his party emerge.
These allege that Kyagulanyi fraudulently took their party some thing they will not accept. And since they have written to the electoral commission to complain.
This group claim that Kyagulanyi’s illegal actions include taking over the party and renaming it.

Secondly they donot want Kyagulanyi to stand for presidency under their party because no body gave him the authority. Because they also challenge his leadership, he is not the party leader according to them.
But in a party delegates conference, Hon Kyagulanyi was made the party leader and the flag bearer.
Through their lawyer James Byamukama, these people say that Kyagulanyi’s actions are against the party constitution.
He can not be our flag bear because we don’t know him. His team deliberately altered our list of founders for their own benefit.
EC is under statutory to address and rectify these irregularities. If EC fail to help, we shall take them to courts of law.
Their lawyers want EC to avail them with full records of the party to help them in the case. This complaint to the commission is of 3rd – august – 2020 but the EC is yet to respond.
Bobi had a delegates conference of 51 members a thing they disagree with because the party has over 400 members
Bobi Wine’s response
However Bobi’s response on social media was, “the dictatorship in total panic”. We did everything legally only that we caught them off guard. Now they are thinking of sabotaging but they can’t.
From the day we unveiled the party, they have been panicking seeing millions of people embracing our party.
Bobi continues to say that “they are trying to do everything to save themselves from collapsing”.
Secondly we know everything you are doing, we know the meetings that are going on to frustrate us. And for us we expected all this and we are ready to battle it out.
In conclusion, my assurance to comrades, we the people will emerge victorious. This new attempt will fail, like other attempts before them.
