Councilor Mubiru Disappointed in NUP, Runs to Prime Minister Nabbanja for Financial Assistance

National Unity Platform councilor James Mubiru has run to Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja for financial support to get medical assistance after his party leadership abandoned him in his time of need.

Mubiru, the LC V councilor for Rubaga North and a diehard NUP member sent his request in a letter to the Prime Minister where he requested her office to give him financial assistance to enable him to travel abroad for treatment.

“Greetings from the bottom of my heart and let me take this opportunity to thank you for the good work of serving our nation directed towards securing the future of Ugandans. I hereby request your esteemed office for financial support towards my travel abroad for further medication,” Mubiru’s letter reads in part.

The Tower Post understands that the councilor has been battling a number of medical conditions since his release from jail in August 2020.

He had been arrested and detained under jurisdiction of the army court for wearing a red beret (then NUP symbol) which according to the UPDF Act of 2005 is a monopoly of the Armed Forces.

Mubiru says doctors at Rubaga hospital diagnosed him with complications to his liver, advising him to seek further medical attention.

“Diagnosis found include Liver cirrhosis and Pancreatitis. It’s a trying moment for me right now because I don’t know what’s next. Doctors have told me if I don’t hurry for medication in America or India or Germany, it will result in Cancer. Kindly stand with me on +256704945585,” Mubiru tweeted on December 22nd.

He also adds that he has tried to reach out to the NUP leadership including the party president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine but he has been disappointed by the slow response to his situation.

“I have tried to look for funds from my party leaders including the party president Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, the leader of the opposition, Members of Parliament, Mayors, the diaspora community, etc but what I can say is that I am disappointed by their slow response yet my situation is worsening,” Mubiru continues.
