Former Leader of opposition Hon. Mathias Mpuuga in hot soup after being asked to step down by NUP Leadership.


The opposition political party National Unity Platform has asked the former leader of opposition Hon. Mathias Mpuuga to step down from his role as commissioner.

Mathias Mpuuga was appointed in December 2023 as commissioner by the party president Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu after being replaced as leader of opposition by Nakawa west member of parliament Hon. Joel Ssenyonyi.

He was asked by the party leadership to step down after conducting investigation that he is a corrupt leader after awarding himself over 450 Uganda millions under unclear circumstances.

While addressing Wakiso district leaders at the party headquarters in Makerere Kavule, the party president Hon Kyagulanyi Ssentamu asserted that he discovered the involvement of the deputy President (Mathias Mpuuga) in corruption, conducted investigations, and obtained evidence.

Leader of Opposition, Hon. Joel Senyonyi has asked Parliament and all MPs not to dismiss the allegations raised against the legislature during the social media exhibition, but rather use this opportunity to address some of the concerns highlighted.

“You can’t be a leader involved in corruption and then expect us to praise you in our party. I will be tough on corruption and people involved in corruption because the country believes and has hope in us.”
