People Power’s activities last week have made several people in the corridors of power weigh in to express their feelings about the pressure group and the latest to do so is the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Kahinda Otafiire. The outspoken long serving minister expressed caution at developments relating to the People Power Movement. Otafiire said the pressure group is making unclear moves.
“Their (People Power) move is interesting but it smells Gen. Mugisha Muntu’s Alliance for National Transformation (ANT),” Otafiire said.
He added, “It’s difficult to tell the difference between People Power and ANT. There is a grey area between both camps and I don’t know what the trick is but that’s their thing.”
Last week, the political movement unveiled its regional coordinators, whose role is to mobilize votes ahead of the 2021 general elections. However, opposition politicians from the Democratic Party Bloc led by Abed Bwanika and Mike Mabike accused Bobi Wine for making a rushed move.
Abed Bwanika stated that Bobi Wine had no powers to appoint People Power leaders because that is the mandate of the people. He further said that the move has made it so easy for President Museveni to crash the opposition before the 2021 General Elections.
