NUP’s Rubongoya denies being tipped for a government job.
The National Unity Platform (NUP) Secretary General David Lewis Rubongoya has refuted reports that President Yoweri Museveni has appointed him Ambassador.
On Friday Daily Pepper, in their article titled ‘New Envoys list leaks held out that Rubongoya and Democratic Party (DP) president Norbert Mao had been tipped for ambassadorial roles.
However, Rubongoya has described the report as the ‘biggest joke of all time’.
He said the NRM system has survived all these years by sponsoring propaganda meant to discredit, derail, divide and eventually destroy those who oppose it and that’s why a malicious article has been authored against him.
“When they try to compromise you and you refuse, they resort to lies and blackmail. For avoidance of doubt, this story and many such others are false and they should be treated with the contempt they deserve,” Rubongoya said in a Facebook post on Friday.
“If our mission was to get jobs, we would never have abandoned our good jobs in the first place to focus on the struggle for freedom and democracy. Some of us would never have opted out of the system and decided to fight it! Our mission is to remove a military dictatorship that has ruined our country. We shall stop at nothing until we achieve that mission. Everything else is a diversion,” he added.
David Lewis Rubongoya a young budding lawyer by profession, is a former die hard cadre of President Tibuhaburwa Museveni’s government.
Because of this background association with the ruling National Resistance Movement, many have branded him a mole in Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu National Unity Platform party.
Whenever, these kind of roumours crop up, the charismatic eloquent activist, doesn’t waste time to come out strongly to, not only deny such allegations but, he always goes ahead to stress his commitment to his current party.
It was sometime alleged that NUP had solicited for support from other opposition parties to name Rubongoya for EALA member of legislation.
Rubongoya has some kin relationship with NUP party President’s wife Barbie Kyagulanyi.
