National Unity Platform flag bearer and presidential aspirant Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has suspended his campaigns in Eastern Uganda to allow him and his supporters to mourn the fallen Muslim leader Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata.
Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata died on December 4, 2020 at International Hotel Kampala where he has been battling with a yet to be known illness since he was admitted on Sunday 22nd November.
Bobi Wine expressed his deep grievance about the death of Muzaata who he described as an ‘esteemed elder’ and thereafter announced rescheduling of the campaigns.
Bobi Wine was once a critique of Sheikh Muzaata when the latter attacked Katikiro Mayiga on Buganda’s ettofali project but the two later reconciled and have since then been friends to each other.

Sheikh Muzaata has also on various occasions criticized the government and released various statements supporting and praising the gallantry of Bobi Wine and his presidency ambitions.
Canceled campaigns will affect districts of Bulambuli, Bukedea and Ngora which were going to be visited tomorrow by Bobi Wine and his campaign procession and will be resumed after the burial of the beloved Sheikh.
“Tomorrow, we were supposed to be in Bulambuli, Bukedea and Ngora with our message of freedom. However, in light of the untimely passing of our esteemed elder Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata, we are rescheduling this program to be able to mourn with his family and loved ones.” Bobi Wine said.
Bobi Wine had earlier sent his condolences saying he has failed to come to terms of accepting the reality that Muzaata is gone.
“I am still lost for words. It is difficult to come to terms with the fact that you are no longer in our midst, but that is life” Said Bobi.
