Top Senior Administrative Secretary of National Unity Platform party (NUP) Mr Simbwa Paul Kagombe has penned a letter to Uganda’s electoral body inquiring about the original constitution.

Whisper Eye has learnt in the letter signed by Mr Kagombe dated 27th May 2021, titled; Inquiry on NUP Constitution in your registry, and was received by the Electoral Commission (EC) on the 28th May, 2021, Mr Kagombe served as the party’s secretary-general up to July 14th, 2020.

“I would like to confirm from the registry of the Commission whether the copy of the original constitution of the party I left on the file is actually the one on the file since the time I assumed the other responsibilities in the party there has never been constitution amendments,” reads the letter in part.

“It has been proved that a constitutional copy my political party is passing around is far different from the right copy of our constitution,” the letter reads further.

According to Mr. Kagombe, there might be selfish top leaders who connived with EC employees to swap the NUP party constitution.

“I, therefore, suspect that some of the senior party officials of NUP in connivance with some Commission staff to illegally swap the party constitution with the forged one to suit their personal ends,” Mr Kagombe states in the letter.

Intelligence shows that the current secretary-general David Luis Rukiri is popularly known as Rubongoya swapped the original NUP constitution with his personally drafted one with yet unknown interests.

Other party leaders headed by Mr Kagombe and former party president Mr Nkonge Moses Kibalama are set to open criminal charges against those suspected to have swapped the party constitution if it is indeed true.
