National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi has endorsed an NRM candidate, one Charles Ayume, for Koboko MP seat.
While on his campaign trail in Koboko District in West Nile Hon. Kyagulanyi made his endorsement for Ayume saying,
“I have studied Mr Ayume for a long time and he inspires me. I know he will not say anything good about me but wherever he is, tell him that I support him.”
Mr Kyagulanyi said Dr Charles Ayume’s father, Mr Francis Ayume, who was Uganda’s Attorney General at the time of his death (2004) inspired him while growing up and that’s why he chose to endorse his son.
As proof of this endorsement, NUP did not front a candidate for the seat in the region.
Dr Ayume beat Minister of State for Investment, Evelyn Anite in a heavily contested September 2020 NRM party primary poll in Koboko.
