Ashburg Katto is in the news for ditching People Power leader Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and joining the ruling NRM.
Ashburg Kato, who was responsible for spreading the gospel of People Power on internet has been vocal ever since he joined NRM.
When asked if his former master, Bobi Wine, has the potential to become the next president of Uganda, Ashburg Kato credited him for having the capacity but downplayed him by claiming he is not ready. “He has the potential but he is not ready. I have worked and supported Bobi Wine for more than 12 years and I can confidently tell you that he is not fit to rule this country. He needs 10 more years, and he will contest favourably in 2031," he said during an interview.
He stressed that his former boss needs more training and mentorship from President Museveni and other elders in NRM.
He also asked Bobi Wine supporters to join him in the yellow bus because they can only win in 2031.
People Power movement has not yet released an official statement about Ashburg Kato's defection even though he revealed he was among the top 8 decision makers in the movement led by Bobi Wine.
