The former president of National Unity Platform (NUP) Party Moses Nkonge Kibalama has requested court to help him regain his freedom after being under military detention for two weeks.
While appearing before court for cross-examination on issues related to de-registration of the National Unity platform (NUP) party, Kibalama confirmed that he has been under military detention in Mbale.
He says he was summoned by the Chief of Defence Forces Gen. David Muhoozi who questioned him about changes in party leadership.
During cross examination done by the National Unity Platform Lawyers led by Merdard Lubega Ssegona, Kibalama also asked court to disregard a video circulating on social media with him saying he had been promised USD 5 million after sale of party to Kyagulanyi.
Kibalama told the high court that he did not sell the National Unity Platform to Mr Robert Kyagulanyi the current Party President he said he handed over the party to Robert Kyagulanyi who later was announced as the new party president.
In August this year, two Ugandans, Difas Basile and Hassan Twala petitioned court seeking the de registration of the National Unity Platform citing irregularities in the way the Party Name was changed from National Unity, Reconciliation and Development Party (NURP) to the National Unity Platform.
