Bobi Wine: I’m not a professor but a voice for the ordinary

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) has told supporters to remain focused and not be detracted by social media critics describing him as a political novice.

The musician turned politician has been the focus of criticism on social media after he failed to appropriately answer a question on fiscal policy during a TV talk show.

Presiding over at a thanksgiving ceremony for Mityana Municipality, Francis Zaake, Bobi Wine who recently declared his presidential ambitions said that what Uganda needs is a good manager.

“The problems we are facing as a country are not because we don’t have experts; we have many of them but they have messed up the country,” Kyagulanyi said.

“I am not a professor, and whoever is looking for a professor in me, you are on a wrong front, I am an ordinary Ugandan fighting for the cause of the ordinary people,” he added.

Kyagulanyi was flanked by a number of MPs from opposition parties as well as the ruling NRM told a cheering crowd that he has a strong team of experts with whom he will work to “take the country back on course.”

He also spoke against attacks on former presidential candidate, FDC strong man Dr Kizza Besigye whom he described as his role model.

Zaake organised the event to offer thanks to God over what he has gone through since August last year when he was brutally arrested in Arua.
