Busiro East Member of Parliament Medard Sseggona has accused NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi of mishandling the situation surrounding corruption allegations against his deputy Mathias Mpuuga.

Tensions have escalated within the National Unity Platform (NUP) as allegations of corruption and abuse of office have emerged, pitting top leaders against each other.

Busiro East Member of Parliament Medard Sseggona has accused NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi of mishandling the situation surrounding corruption allegations against his deputy Mathias Mpuuga.

Sseggona criticised Kyagulanyi's approach, stating, "If you are a leader and you are the first to make such a statement, it's wrong because as a leader when you speak, nobody else is going to speak."

This criticism comes in response to Kyagulanyi's public accusation against Mpuuga, who allegedly received a 500 million shillings "good service award" from Parliament, triggering accusations of corruption and abuse of office.

However, political analyst and lecturer, Imam Idd Kasozi, offered a glimmer of hope for reconciliation.

"It's not over with Bobi Wine and Mpuuga," Kasozi said.

Kasozi emphasised the human element, suggesting that the personal relationship between the two leaders could pave the way for resolution.

"They can be reconciled," says Imam Kasozi. "The two are human beings and know each other."

The allegations against Mpuuga are serious, with accusations of bribery stemming from the 500 million shillings allocation he purportedly received from Parliament for his services as Leader of the Opposition.

In a retaliatory move, Mpuuga accused Kyagulanyi of "orchestrating and funding a campaign to character assassinate him ", further complicating the situation.

As allegations and counter-allegations continue to surface, the party's internal unity and public perception hang in the balance.

The rift within NUP leadership raises questions about the party's ability to navigate internal conflicts and maintain a united front amidst external pressures.

With the upcoming political landscape, the resolution of this dispute will undoubtedly have significant implications for NUP's future trajectory and credibility.

As the controversy unfolds, all eyes are on NUP leadership to address these allegations transparently and decisively, in order to restore trust and uphold the party's commitment to integrity and accountability.

Only time will tell how this saga will ultimately unfold and its lasting impact on the political landscape.
