Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine has been trending since he was arrested last week.
Bobi Wine was arrested following President Yoweri Museveni’s motorcade getting pelted with stones by angry protesters in north western town of Arua. Both the musician turned politician and the current president had gone to campaign for different candidates to take over the vacant legislative seat. Wine was later arraigned in court and charged with illegal possession of firearms.
Clearly Museveni feels threatened by Bobi Wines massive growth politically ever since he joined the Ugandan politics in 2017. The government claims that Mr Kyagulanyi, who is currently remanded in Gulu Prison, is one of the suspects who allegedly pelted stones at one of the vehicles in the President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy, smashing its rear windscreen.
He is not afraid to take risks, to go against the fiery dictator, he is fast growing to be a legend and this is why I think so.
He fights for the voiceless.
While some of the other popular Ugandan celebrities like Jose Chameleon and Bebe Cool have openly supported Museveni despite seeing how his leadership has been crooked we would assume for goodies, he chose not to but rather to fight for the people and the voiceless.
He is fearless and selfless.
He knows his country very well and he had seen what happens to those who defy the government but that didn’t hold him back. He doesn’t seem like he will stop even after the torture he might have gone through so far.
He has been at the fore front of those fighting for Ugandans rights.
For example he has been leading those who are fighting the taxation of the use of social media in Uganda.
From what we have seen from the self proclaimed “Ghetto president” so far I think he might be the one to finally bring change to his country and he is already doing some legendary stuff.
