Government has accused National Unity Platform presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine of lying about the safety of his entire family in the country.
This comes after Kyagulanyi flew his children out of the country claiming the regime had plans of physically harming his children and wife Barbie.
However, Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo has trashed his claims, adding that he should admit he has been caught off guard.
Opondo says the government has nothing against Kyagulanyi and that President Museveni has a clean record of not harming or killing politicians.
“Hogwash At least NRM, Kaguta Museveni track record of not harming or assassinating politicians is available. Kizza Besigye fled Uganda in 2001 with similar claims. His wife Winnie Byanyima claimed he would be poisoned while in Luzira Prison. Sejusa too fled & made similar claims,” he said.
Opondo meanwhile scoffs at Bobi Wine saying flying his family out of the country means he might even seek refuge in an embassy after voting on polling day.
