Members of the National Unity Platform (NUP) have come out to stand for their party name which has recently been damaged by section of government and security organs as being behind the ongoing machette wielding killings in the country.
This comes after police said that two NUP members Allan Ssewanyana and Muhammad Ssegirinya were pointed out by some of the suspects arrested for being involved in Masaka murders, alleged in their records that the two MPs sent them to carry out the murders promising them money.
Mathias Mpuga, the leader of opposition in parliament says that they are to work hard in order to stop the government from creating a bad name for them .
The party members also said that the government wants to spoil their name since it has failed to do it’s duty of protecting Ugandans and their properties. They accuse police of failing that to clearly trace the earlier murders during Gen Kayihura’s period.
Moreso, party members say that if the two MPs are culprits, the police should tell the public instead of saying that investigation is still ongoing as the only excuse.
