NUP’s Double Standards Exposed by Plans to Demonstrate Against Amama Mbabazi’s Right to Treatment

A group of youth under the NUP-People Power Diaspora Movement based in the United Kingdom (UK) have planned a demonstration to deny former Prime Minister John Patrick Amama Mbabazi the right to medical treatment he is currently receiving in London.

Mbabazi, who is in the UK for back treatment, has faced backlash from NUP diehards who claim he shouldn’t receive treatment. This is despite the fact that NUP leaders and supporters have themselves sought medical treatment abroad in the past.

This latest incident is just one example of NUP’s double standards on the issue of medical treatment. In the past, NUP leaders have blocked pro-NRM individuals from seeking medical treatment abroad, while at the same time allowing their own leaders and members to do so.

Last year, they demonstrated against the treatment of late Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah and even celebrated his death. This hypocrisy has been condemned by many Ugandans, who believe that everyone should have the right to access medical treatment, regardless of their political affiliation.

However, concerned Ugandans are asking why certain demonstrators have chosen not to protest when NUP sycophants, such as Betty Nambooze and Francis Zaake, use government resources to seek medical treatment abroad.

The plans to demonstrate against Mbabazi’s right to treatment are also a sign of the growing intolerance within NUP. In recent months, there has been a rise in attacks on NUP’s political opponents, both physical and verbal.

This intolerance is a worrying development, and it is a sign that NUP is becoming increasingly radicalized. The plans to demonstrate against Mbabazi’s right to treatment are a clear example of NUP’s growing intolerance and all Ugandans should be wary of this trend, and they should stand up against NUP’s attempts to silence its opponents and leaders who have done great things for the nation.

During his time as Prime Minister, Mbabazi oversaw a period of economic growth and stability. He also played a key role in the peace process in the Democratic Republic of Congo by urging UN Security Council allow UPDF pursue the LRA that were terrorizing the region.

Mbabazi has been lauded by many political players as a skilled negotiator and deal-maker. He is also a strong advocate for regional peace and security.

Mbabazi might be a controversial figure, but there is no doubt that he is a talented politician who has made significant contributions to Uganda. He deserves our respect and admiration.
