However, the team suffered a set back at the start after Bildad Moses Adome (Jie County) Member of Parliament, who was appointed as the main coordinator in charge of Karamoja region, turned down the appointment, saying he was not consulted.

On Wednesday, People Power movement a group of opposition politicians affiliated to Kyadondo East Member of Parliament unveiled 140 member team to spearhead their mobilization activities across the country as they head towards the 2021 presidential elections.

The function, attended by opposition figures in other opposition parties such as FDC, DP, took place at BobiWine's home in Magere, Wakiso district.

The team has representatives from all the regions of Uganda.

However, the team suffered a set back at the start after Bildad Moses Adome (Jie County) Member of Parliament, who was appointed as the main coordinator in charge of Karamoja region, turned down the appointment, saying he was not consulted.

He has also noted that those who appeared on the list as People Power Karamoja delegates were not from Karamoja.

In an interview with New Vision, Adome noted: “I have seen a media circulation from the people power fraternity of which my name again comes in as a coordinator for Karamoja region with a group of others I don't believe are true Karamojong’s or are just concoctions as well.  Looking at the list, it’s surely a presumption by the people power group that whoever voted against the age limit is for them.  This is not true to some of us,” the MP said.

 
The list comprised some members of Parliament who were not present at the function but belong to other political parties.

“Please, it’s my humble request that those whose very interest has been to demonize me,  wait for a little till I confirm soonest my position.  You can confirm yours anyway, it’s your right,” the MP added.

He noted that whereas it was his right to belong to any political party, “it is also my right to be protected from circumstances that may be of jeopardy to my roles as a member of parliament from National Resistance Movement. I will request to know what exactly the people power stands for,  what they would wish me to do and how they expect me to do and how possibly it may be of help to the people I lead.  Short of the above, I won't be fooled to accept what I don't see light in,” Adome added.
