EU denies telling Bobi Wine to warn supporters against sectarian statements fuelling genocide

The European Union (EU) has dismissed reports that it urged National Unity Platform (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine to warn his supporters against sectarian statements that could fuel genocide.

After the meeting, EU head of delegation Attilio Pacifici said the discussion was a way to “exchange views and hear their concerns following the elections.”

“We value and encourage dialogue with and between all political actors. I look forward to meetings also with other political parties in the near future.”
