SG Rubongoya Reveals The Truth About Bobi Wine’s Monthly Salary From NUP

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The National Unity Platform SG David Lewis Rubongoya has debunked what he said is fake news in a document that has been making rounds o social media since the Mpuuga issue reached the boiling point last week.

The document had earlier indicated that Bobi Wine’s wife is a signatory to the party’s bank accounts yet she’s not in the headachy of the NUP top leadership, the same document had also indicated that NUP pay Bobi Wine Shs100m per month.

The same document had also alleged that NUP paid rent in millions to use his Kamwokya building as party headquarters before shifting to Makerere-Kavule, it further alleged that land where the new party headquarters sit is in the names of Bobi Wine’s brother Chairman Nyanzi not the party’s and many other allegations.


Now, the Secretary General has refuted such claims and indicated his true version of the story and also addressed matters of transparency and accountability which Mpuuga accused the party and Bobi Wine of doing.

We publish his statement verbatim as seen below.

This fake message has been making rounds on social media. It contains material falsehoods. For the benefit of those who may be misled by it, let me respond as follows:

1. No. Mrs. Barbie Kyagulanyi is not and has never been a signatory to any NUP account. The signatories to the single Party account we have are the President, Secretary General and the National Treasurer as is standard practice, and in accordance with the NEC Resolution.

2. No. Hon. Kyagulanyi doesn’t earn 100m per month. In fact, what he gets as facilitation allowance for his work is lower than what he earned as Member of Parliament.

3. Chairman Nyanzi as Secretary for Mobilisation is facilitated to do the work of that office. No other ‘relative’ draws a salary or allowances from NUP.

4. We have regularly stated that NUP has never paid any money as rent to use the Kamwokya premises. We started using those premises as People Power in 2018 even before NUP came up, and we remain grateful that our President availed these premises to the work of the struggle without asking for anything in return.

5. NUP regularly files its accountability reports in accordance with the law. In addition, we have constantly accounted to Party members and the public by detailing the items we spend on, but most importantly through our activities and acquisitions as a Party.

6. We have so far bought six pieces of land where our offices are located at Kavule. Five of the six titles have already been transferred into the National Unity Platform, and anyone can do a search and verify. Only one title is yet to be transferred because there was a caveat placed on it as a result of a family conflict amongst the sellers. No single title is in the names of Chairman Nyanzi or any other individual.

The hullabaloo surrounding the Mpuuga issue continues taking twists and might not leave the party the same. Keep it here we shall bring it as it unfolds.
