The National Unity Platform (NUP) Party Official Twitter account has lost its verification badge, the Daily Express has established.
The Kamwokya-based party has however not released an official statement regarding the removal of the blue verification badge on its official Twitter handle.
This website has also noticed that the Twitter account in question was last updated two months ago.
A source within the party claims that the account has long since been abandoned after the teams noticed unusual activity on it.
According to the source, members manning the account were locked out of it and therefore the party chose to withdraw its effort from further engaging on the account.
“It could be for such reasons that Twitter chose to withdraw its verification as such to avoid the confusion,’ a member of the NUP executive claimed.
When contacted by Daily Express, the Party’s Secretary-General Lewis David Rubongooya confirmed the developments, he however noted that “the account was hacked into, and it was abandoned”.
