Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP), has slammed the government for failing to carry out its responsibility of ensuring the health and general welfare of the country’s most vulnerable residents.
Kyagulanyi’s remark came after an incident in Nakaseke’s Kikamulo health centre III yesterday, in which police fired bullets and tear gas at his wife, Barbie Kyagulanyi, and National Unity Platform (NUP) MPs who were delivering relief items to young mothers in the region.
Barbie told the press that she didn’t understand why cops were firing tear gas at them when they hadn’t done anything wrong.
According to Kyagulanyi, the Ministry of Education, managed by Janet Museveni, has pledged to provide schoolchildren with basic necessities such as sanitary pads on multiple occasions only to subsequently claim there is no money.
“As a result, many girls from low-income families continue to miss school due to a lack of sanitary pads. Now that it is embroiled in scandal, the government is determined to ensure that no one else performs the basic functions that it has failed to perform. We will eventually overcome this madness,” he wrote.
In response to reports that the individual named as the first recipient of the Covid-19 relief fund by Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja was not who he claimed to be, Kyagulanyi stated it was a terrible embarrassment to the country.
