Bobi Wine: I’m on a mission to oust Museveni
Exactly a year since his driver, Yasin Kawuma was killed during the Arua by-elections, Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) joined supporters of his People Power movement to pray for Kawuma’s soul.
Kawuma was gunned down outside Pacific hotel in Arua as soldiers of the presidential elite guard unit; Special forces Command (SFC) mounted a search for Kyagulanyi who was blamed for the chaos that led to the alleged stoning of President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy.
Museveni was in Arua to campaign for the NRM candidate Nusura Tiperu while Kyagulanyi was campaigning for the eventual winner, Ezat Kassiano Wadri.
Kyagulanyi, Wadri and 35 others including MPs Paul Mwiru (Jinja Municipality East), Gerald Karuhanga (Ntungamo Municipality) and Francis Zaake (Mityana Municipality) were brutally arrested transferred to Gulu where they were charged with treason.
Addressing supporters who turned up for Kawuma’s memorial prayer at Lusanja in Kasangati Town Council, Wakiso district, Kyagulanyi said that August 13, 2018 had become a memorable day in his political career since it was on that day that he took a decision to take all lawful means to fight President Museveni’s government.
“We are on a mission to out sit a dictator called Museveni. That dictator has tried to suffocate our voices, I personally cannot stage any musical concerts but despite all that, we shall not tire on our mission to out sit Museveni,” Kyagulanyi said.
He challenged the police to make public its findings from its investigation of Kawuma’s killing as well as the death of a number of his supporters including a boda boda cyclist who was knocked dead last week by the police in Luweero as the cops struggled with crowds that formed along the Gulu-Kampala highway to welcome the MP who was returning to Kampala from Gulu magistrate’s court.
Kyagulanyi reiterated his resolve to challenge Museveni in the 2021 elections.
