Bobi Wine works up MPs with Kyarenga at year ender
Parliament had just debated government’s ban on Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi’s music concerts. The legislator is also the popular pop music star popularly known as Bobi Wine, who has had a number of his concerts blocked by the police.
On Thursday, MPs put the Minister for Internal Affairs Gen Jeje Odong on the spot over the police actions and if the minister was wondering why MPs from both the NRM and Opposition sides heckled him as he labored to justify the police actions, he needed a few hours to understand why.
In the Southern wing parking lot, the stage was already set for Parliament’s end of year party. Bobi Wine was among the artistes that had been contacted to perform as MPs and Parliamentary staff burnt off the 2018 steam.
It was a back to the 1960s theme night which meant that the bureaucrats and politicians at Parliament had to relive the olden days – afro hair styles, bell bottom trousers, colonial era police uniforms and the dance strokes of the time were showcased.
Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and her deputy Jacob Oulanyah were at hand to show that besides reading Rules and whatnot to the legislators, they are also good at dancing as Afrigo Band’s Rachael Magoola did her popular hit, Obangaina.
That was before Bobi Wine made the MPs go wild with his latest popular hit – Kyarenga. He literally got everyone on the dance floor. Ministers, NRM officials, MPs and security personnel all found themselves dancing to government’s “unwanted” sounds from the Ghetto.
