According to him, “On behalf of the National Unity Platform, I would love to thank all comrades here and abroad who supported our campaign financially, to a point that we never lacked anything on the campaign trail.

“Some Ugandans gave as little as 500 shillings, as testament for their commitment to the cause. There are some friends who deposited money at petrol stations so that our vehicles never lacked fuel. Thank you”, he said.

He added that some Ugandans took it upon themselves to raise funds which supported National Unity platform polling agents and supervisors countrywide. “Thank you.

“From the time we were attacked with live bullets on the campaign trail and particularly when a projectile hit Dan Magic smashing his face, many Ugandans out of concern sent me bullet proof vests.

“And ballistic helmets, which I put on throughout the campaign period, and gave others to comrades. Indeed, if I did not have one on in Masaka, the story would be different. Thank You”, he said.

Bobi Wine noted that some group of comrades kick-started a fundraising campaign for a bullet proof vehicle. “These comrades informed me of their plan, but I thought it was an uphill task, given how expensive it is.

“A few weeks ago, these comrades surprised me when they informed me that they had succeeded in raising enough money for the vehicle, and here it is. I can’t Thank you enough”, he added.

He appreciated those who have continued to support the efforts of party Secretariat in reaching out to the families of injured comrades, as well as those who are in prisons.

“You comrades continue to lift the burden off our shoulders, and for this we are grateful. Contrary to what Gen. Museveni and his spin-masters love to say, this struggle to-date continues to be supported by Ugandans here and abroad.

We are very, very grateful. Without your effort and support, we would never have been able to come this far” Bobi Wine said.
