Bobi Wine singing Uganda’s songs of redemption

by Oloo Winnie

President Yoweri Museveni has been Uganda president for 35 years, he will be seeking another term in the top helm authority. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni shares a long history with power. He rescued Uganda from the horrors and embarrassments of Apollo Milton Obote and Idi Amin and some young popstar cum politician is determined to tumble his throne.

Just who is this dare-devil that dares to stand up against a regime so synonymous with Africa leadership.

Bobi Wine, real name Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu,38, is a member of Parliament and singer and most importantly a key opponent for Yoweri Museveni his People Power Movement.

Museveni, 76, has twice amended the constitution to stay in power. In 2005 he scrapped the two-term presidential limit and in 2018 he removed the 75-year age limit for presidential candidates. That has enabled him to run for a sixth term in the 14 January 2021 elections which would probably extend his hold on power until 2026.
