Wadri Reveals Why He Ditched People Power to Join Muntu at ANT

The Member of Parliament Arua Municipality Kassiano Wadri has on Thursday been unveiled as a member of the Alliance for National Transformation-ANT party.

Wadri crossed from People Power Movement to join the Alliance for National Transformation, ANT led by former UPDF Army Commander Gen. Mugisha Muntu.

During his unveiling, Wadri revealed that he played a part in the initial stages of the ANT formation and he couldn’t miss being a registered member of the party.

He said he felt more comfortable being in a political organization that is led by Muntu with whom they share youthful history especially in the struggle for good governance.

Wadri also explained that before the creation of NUP, Kyagulanyi ran a pressure group, the People Power which all political activists aggrieved with the NRM decided to identify with.

In the past 1 month alone, a number of politicians associated with the people power movement have been seen crossing over to ANT including Ntungamo Municipality legislator Gerald Karuhanga, Jinja Municipality legislator Paul Mwiru, and now Arua Municipality legislator Wadri.


Kyagulanyi was a key player in the election that brought Wadri to power, a campaign that ended with the murder of Kyagulanyi’s driver Yasin Kawuma.

Wadri was in 2018 elected the MP Arua Municipality in a by-election following the death of Ibrahim Abiringa.

Police arrested individuals, led by Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, were accused of obstructing President Yoweri Museveni’s motorcade and pelting stones that smashed the windscreen of one of the vehicles in the convoy. The President was in Arua to campaign for Nusura Tiperu, a candidate of the National Resistance Movement- NRM party.

With just a few days to the NRM primaries in Mawogola sub-county, violence has rocked the area again with members of Sodo’s camp accusing the rival camp of using thugs to beat them up. This comes amidst heavy police deployment in the area, in anticipation of the forthcoming election.

In a video that has been circulating on social media, an unidentified man, alleges that he was beaten to pulp by members of the Sam Kuteesa camp, over what he claims is election related, as he belongs to the opposing camp of NRM aspirant Godfrey Aine Kaguta alias Sodo.

The man called on the president to intervene in the matter, calling for change in the area’s leadership, in order for much needed peace to prevail in the area.

Tensions are high in the area, particularly between the two rival camps of Godfrey Aine Kaguta and Ms Shartsi Musherure, the daughter to the Foreign Affairs Minister and incumbent Mawogola North MP Sam Kutesa, who are both vying for the position of NRM flag bearer, alongside Kiseeka Salim.
