Mubende, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | National Unity Platform (NUP) Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has declared that his campaign is now being run guerrilla style.

Kyagulanyi further accused Museveni of directly and indirectly crippling talents of the youths whom he has impoverished abut he, Kyagulanyi, is giving hope for a bright future.
He has assured the people of Mubende and Mityana that with their vote in his favor to see a change in regime, Uganda will never be the same and everyone will appreciate his leadership.
