Opposition National Unity Platform – NUP has declared Wednesday May 12th a day of Prayer and fasting, The Tower Post reports.
This was announced by the party spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi in a Twitter post on Tuesday afternoon.
“As NUP, we’ve declared tomorrow [May 12th 2021] a day of prayer and fasting. We’ll beseech God to heal Uganda (2Chronicles 7:14),” he posted.
“As Mr. Museveni swears himself after a rigged election, killing, incarcerating and maiming people, NUP leaders will be at NUP offices to pray. You too can pray from wherever you’ll be,” he added.
Joel Ssenyonyi had earlier revealed that the NUP would not be attending the swearing in ceremony of President Yoweri Museveni saying if they attended they would be validating a stolen victory.
The Tower Post earlier reported that security officers had cordoned off NUP party offices along Old Kira Road in Kamwokya in anticipation of violence on inauguration day.
Whether NUP will be allowed to hold a prayer gathering at the party offices or not remains to be seen.
