Muhammad Nsereko  has finally green lighted Kyagulanyi’s presidential bid.

Nsereko broke the silence in a televised political talk show which featured  on NBS TV this morning. The outspoken independent minded legislator emulate Aruu county MP Odonga Otto and called on other opposition candidates to consider rallying behind the NUP party candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine who appears to be Museveni’s major challenger.

“The reality is that the leading champion for change is Robert Kyagulanyi. If only we (opposition) would unite and rally behind him, we would be a stronger force,” Nsereko said on the NBS Morning breeze show which aired this Tuesday morning.

Nsereko had earlier stubbornly declined to endorse Bobi Wine citing a few issues after realising he was not the people’s favourite candidate to return to parliament in the same seat he has occupied for a decade. The self styled NRM rebel MP feared that the People Power movement would sweep him out of the seat he has gripped since 2011.

Nsereko becomes the third seating legislator after DP’s Mukasa Mbidde and Odonga Otto to finally publicly express their endorsement for Kyagulanyi Ssentamu.
