He has had several battles to settle down with the National Unity Platform former leadership headed by Nkonge Kibalama accusing him of illegal take over of their party.
The other person who vowed to block Kyagulanyi from appearing on the ballot paper is maverick lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi who sued him over his papers and date of birth.
Kyagulanyi was escorted by several NUP party members including his elder brother Fred Nyanzi Ssentamu, David Lewis Lubongoya, Hon. Allan Sewanyana, Hon. Francis Zaake, party Spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi among other people.
