The leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP) Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has said President Museveni is currently under pressure because he has been isolated by the international community.
Kyagulanyi made the remarks shortly after President Museveni tweeted that he met a section of coordinators and members for the opposition(NUP) at State House Entebbe.
Museveni stated that he appreciated the views of these group on the different failures of the NRM adding that he assured them that those problems shall be addressed together as a team.
In response to the tweet, Kyagulanyi said that for the past many years, Museveni has always paraded random individuals who he claims have crossed from the opposition to the ruling party, something he said it’s not true.
“This election thief and despot is so desperate to cleanse himself. He fails to realise how late it is for him. In the last elections, they went as far as getting soldiers and dressing them in NUP T-shirts so that they could say our people were crossing over [to NRM],”Kyagulanyi wrote.
“At times they will get one sell-out for the optics and parade him or her with other random people. It is very important for all of us to understand how dictators operate,”he added.
He said Museveni right now is under pressure with criminal charges potentially hanging over his head at the ICC adding that he is being isolated by the international community.
“He is preparing to swear himself in illegally next week and of course he is too ashamed. He now has to pull off some of these desperate theatrics to portray himself in better light before the very citizens he has butchered in cold blood, kidnapped and subjected to all manner of torture and humiliation,”he noted.
