The visit of the NUP Party President, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine to Soroti city that was expected to happen on 6th of September during his nationwide tour has been postponed till further notice by the regional party leadership.
Kyagulanyi was expected to open the party office and mobilize support in the district.
The decision to change the program was decided by the Party Regional team during an indoor meeting on Friday 1st September, 2023.
According George William Okoit, a mobilizer of NUP in Soroti city during the meeting with other party delegates on Friday at their office in Soroti city, the change came after the review of time and program of the party president’s agenda that had some congestion.
He added that, in the first program, Kyagulanyi was supposed to visit Mbale and proceed to Soroti on the same date which would give the people of Teso limited time to tell the party President the status of the party leadership in Teso and challenges. They appealed to the Party’s top management to organize another day for the Party president to have a special visit to the region.
The visit according to Okoit will be scheduled after the party president returns from his Canada trip thus challenging all the people to turn up in big numbers to listen to the manifesto and good information that their party president has for them.
Denis Erionu, the Youth Chairperson Soroti, also stated that the coming of Kyagulanyi to Teso is to energize the people of Teso and to let them know that the party is still strong and continues to quest for freedom amidst other rumors that circulate around.
He also added that the party is also building its structures to help in the mobilization for all the party activities ahead of the upcoming campaigns for 2026 general elections.
