The leader of National Unity Platform, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has said failure to release Museveni’s academic documents is enough evidence to show that Uganda is still under military rule.
In his message to Ugandans to mark 58 years of independence, Kyagulanyi said it has been close to two months now ever since the Electoral Commission quickly released his academic documents but has refused to release those of President Museveni.
“The commission came up with all sorts of excuses for not releasing Museveni’s papers but now we know why. In this Deed Poll, the man who has participated in the previous six elections, purports to legally change his names for the first time,”said Kyagulanyi.
Kyagulanyi queried how the EC has been nominating President Museveni all these years claiming that the circumstances show that he had never been nominated legally.
“Was he ever legally nominated? Is he then in office legally? Did he actually possess the required documents? Why did they [EC] not release the documents and let Gen. Museveni sort out the name thing at that time?” Kyagulanyi queried.
Kyagulanyi said Ugandans must not waste any valuable time lying to themselves that a system like this one will produce freedom on a silver platter.
“We shall and must struggle for it. I thank counsel Muwada Nkunyigi who together with other lawyers are pushing this matter forward. Yet again, the emperor is naked,”he noted.
Previously known as Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president announced in a deed poll that he has dropped the use of any other name and will now be known as Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni.
