The leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP), Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, has called upon opposition in Parliament to prioritize the protection of human rights.

During a press conference held on Monday in Kampala, Kyagulanyi addressed the challenges faced by the opposition in 2023 and outlined their goals for the new year.

"We must continue demanding the whereabouts of our missing people, dead or alive. Additionally, we must persist in demanding the release of all political prisoners and justice for those who have been victims of extrajudicial killings," said Kyagulanyi.

Kyagulanyi also congratulated Joel Ssenyonyi on his appointment as the new leader of the opposition in parliament.

He urged Ssenyonyi and other newly appointed leaders to utilize their positions for the betterment of all Ugandans.

"We see ourselves in you and eagerly anticipate the representation of the common people's voice on the parliamentary floor," he said.

Transparency and accountability in public service were key messages emphasised by Kyagulanyi.

"Ladies and gentlemen, first and foremost, I would like to thank the Almighty God for guiding us through 2023 and allowing us to witness the arrival of 2024. We have lost many of our people last year, and we continue to pray for their souls," he said.

Reflecting on the challenges faced by the opposition in 2023, Kyagulanyi highlighted the soaring public debt and the prevalence of corruption, including the alleged theft of relief items by regime officials.

Despite these obstacles, he emphasised the party's determination to continue fighting for a new Uganda and encouraged party leaders to work towards greater success in the new year.

"We choose to persevere in our fight for a new Uganda because we believe in it, and we know we can achieve it in our lifetime," he said.

Kyagulanyi also expressed gratitude for the opportunity to see 2024 and acknowledged the losses suffered in the previous year.

He urged the population to remain vigilant and mobilize at all levels of society to collectively put an end to what he referred to as the "Museveni dictatorship" and rebuild the country.

The National Unity Platform, known for its opposition stance, underwent significant leadership reshuffles in parliament at the end of last year, including the appointment of Ssenyonyi as the new leader of the opposition, replacing Matthias Mpuuga.

Most of the newly appointed leaders received approval from Parliament.

As the new year unfolds, Kyagulanyi urged the opposition in Parliament to effectively represent the voice of the common people on the parliamentary floor.
