Bobi Says His Campaigns Have Not Violated Any Covid-19 SOPS
National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential flag bearer Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has refuted claims by Electoral Commission that his campaigns have violated COVID-19 SOPs and regulations put in place by the Ministry of Health and EC.
“Let me reiterate that our campaign has not in any way breached the COVID-19 regulations or SOPs. In fact, it is the police and other security agencies that have persistently breached the law, blocked our meetings, illegally held us at roadblocks, denied us access to accommodation, ejected us out of radio stations, etc.” Bobi Wine noted in a letter to the EC.
Bobi Wine says it is instead the police and other security operatives that have been violating the law and blocked several of his meetings.
Bobi Wine’s letter was in response to a concern from EC which accused of his of breaching the said rules and summoned him for a discussion over the same.
He lamented that security agencies have denied them access to the proposed venues for their meetings citing flimsy excuses yet the same venues are being used by National Resistance Movement (NRM) candidate Yoweri Museveni.
