By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
The National Unity Platform President Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has distanced himself from talk about reported negotiations between members of his party and government regarding the release of MPs; Allan Ssewanyana and Muhammad Ssegirinya.
In a statement released yesterday afternoon, Kyagulanyi says while he has noted insinuations from different sources pointing to negotiations for the release of the two MPs, he knows none of such and has not blessed them.
He noted that they cannot involve in negotiations with President Museveni because there is nothing they have to offer him in exchange for “their rights”.
Kyagulanyi added that the only thing Museveni would need is for them to stop fighting the regime, which they are not about to do.
