Ugandan opposition MP Robert Kyangulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, has launched his National Unity Platform party ahead of next year’s general elections.
Bobi Wine said the party will be the political wing of his People Power Movement. The party symbol is a red and white umbrella.
He previously announced his intention to run for the presidency.
The East African nation is set to hold general elections in January 2021 when President Yoweri Museveni is expected to seek a sixth term in office.
The launch comes a day after Mr Museveni picked his nomination.
Uganda’s electoral commission banned campaigns because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Opposition figures have, however, criticised the ban saying it gives an unfair advantage to the ruling party whose members own media outlets.
