Veteran Journalist Andrew Mwenda has registered as a member of the National Unity Platform (NUP) with hopes of securing the party flag in the forth coming Presidential elections in 2021.
Mwenda who has been known as a controversial Journalist and an NRM party apologist has shocked many with his choice to join NUP.
“This morning, I went to the headquarters of the National Unity Platform, registered as a member and paid,” Mwenda said in a video posted on his Twitter.
Mwenda also picked nomination forms with the intentions to beat People Power Principal Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi to the party presidency.
