Makerere Kavule is the new headquarters of Uganda's leading opposition party, the National Unity Platform (NUP).

National Unity Platform (NUP), Uganda’s leading opposition party, has unveiled its new headquarters in Makerere Kavule.

Uganda’s leading opposition party, the National Unity Platform (NUP) party has unveiled its new headquarters in Makerere Kavule.

Speaking at the unveiling event, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine the party president said the new foundation comes in time as they continue to embark on their struggle to liberate the country from the overstaying National Resistance Movement, NRM government.

“We are unveiling the site for our new headquarters. We are very pleased today to lay the foundation stone for the establishment of our party headquarters in Bwaise, Kavule.”

“Those who dismissed us as a mere wave will soon realise that we are a serious group, committed to leading the liberation struggle to its accomplishment,” Bobi Wine said.

In his words, the party spokesperson, Joel Ssenyonyi said over time as the party continues to grow its numbers, they have realised that the need to acquire more space to accommodate party meetings.

“Our President gave us the place in Kamwokya. It might not continue to be our headquarters; however, it will continue to be a place we shall use as a party. Over time, we have realized that Kamwokya has become too small for us. As a political party, we have grown and continue to grow,” Ssenyonyi said.

“Many times when we want to have big functions, we inconvenience our party President to allow us to use his compound because he has an expansive compound.”

He added that in future they hope to transform their current Kamwokya offices into a training centre to train future leaders.

“We have, over time, managed to salvage this place and have now finally acquired this place, so the headquarters of the National Unity Platform is going to be established here. (Makerere Kavule). We have future plans to perhaps make it a training center for our people,” Ssenyonyi added.

Meanwhile the leader of Opposition, Mathias Mpuuga said by acquiring a new permanent home, the party is trying to show Ugandans that they are in struggle permanently and not on a temporary basis.

NUP now has a permanent home, and the people of Uganda know that our struggle is a permanent struggle for restoring sanity and a sense of permanent democracy in Uganda,” Mpuuga said.
