Bobi Wine: Museveni is drunk with power

In Summary

  • He said that Museveni was initially on the right course before he got consumed by the trappings of absolute power.
  • According to him, Museveni is drunk with power and it is also the people around him who are to blame.
  • On his own safety and security Bobi Wine said: "God and the common people are my security."

Ugandan MP Bobi Wine is still on the quest for liberation of his country he said during an exclusive interview on Citizen TV.

Speaking on the JKL show, Bobby Wine depicted a sense of humility, defiance, selflessness, respect and courage as he articulated why he remains steadfast in his fight for ‘liberation’ in Uganda.

The Kyaddondo East MP explained that he wasn’t always conscious of the injustices in Uganda as he felt that he was comfortable in his perceived good life.

This changed when he was attacked by a member of the security forces in Uganda for driving a ‘good car’.

“This is when I realised that nobody was safe including myself which was the turning point for me: from a musician to a politician cum activist,” he told Jeff Koinange.

While the people of Uganda live in fear, Wine is among the few who are brave enough to speak out against oppression.

He said that Museveni was initially on the right course before he got consumed by the trappings of absolute power.

“What we desire to see is a president that will not be scared to live in his country after he relinquishes power” he said.

According to him, Museveni is drunk with power and it is also the people around him who are to blame.

Internet and social media are avenues for every conscious person to air their views and opinions on sensitive matters that affect them but in Uganda, it is restricted.

One cannot access WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Google Hangouts, Yahoo Messenger, Instagram, YouTube, Skype and others without paying Ush.200 (Ksh.5) daily in addition to bandwidth charges.

This taxation, according to Bobi Wine, is a plan by Museveni to block Ugandans from practicing their freedom of  expression which is a fundamental right for every ‘democracy’.

On his own safety and security Bobi Wine said: “God and the common people are my security.”

He also cited servant leadership as a quality of a progressive Head of State and to him, Museveni has fallen short.

“Museveni disrespected Ugandans by telling us bluntly that he is nobody’s servant. The people of Uganda are here to remind him that he is supposed to be a servant of the people; we are not supposed to fear him, he is supposed to fear us,” he added.
