Former National Unity Platform (NUP) member and events promoter Andrew Mukasa alias Bajjo has come out openly to request for forgiveness from former Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu through a video he posted on his social media platforms.
Last year, when he crossed bridges and joined the ruling party-National Resistance Movement (NRM), Bajjo opened up a verbal war against Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and his NUP supporters. And since then he has been attacking the outgoing Kyadondo East Member of Parliament left and right.
On several occasions, Bajjo has been claiming that the NUP leader is a drug addict and fraudster looking for a better living.
But on Monday, the events promoter shocked netizens when he he decided to apologize to Bobi Wine saying that whatever he did, he did it out of anger because NUP denied him a party ticket to contest for Nakawa west parliamentary seat.
“I regret why I used to abuse Bobi Wine, I’m so sorry. It’s me Mukasa asking you Kyagulanyi to forgive me.I’m so sorry.I’m apologizing because our Buganda elders told me that what I was doing was wrong by attacking a fellow Muganda who is fighting for us,” Bajjo said in a video footage shared on Monday,” Bajjo said in a video making rounds on Facebook.
“When I was still in NUP, I got angry when you declined to make me your flagbearer for Nakawa West. Kayemba Solo told me that I shouldn’t bother putting up my campaign posters because you had already given the party ticket to another person.”
Bajjo also noted that President Museveni never bought me to abuse Bobi Wine. He claimed that he was doing it on his own.
“But for sure, President Museveni never bought me, he never gave me a single penny to leave NUP. What annoyed me was that Kayemba Solo told me that Joel Ssenyonyi and Paul Kakande were still on the round trouble to agree on who will take the party ticket without considering me. That was disrespectful.”
