Kyadondo east legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi wine has revealed his plans to run for presidency and make her wife Barbie Kyagulanyi Itungo the first lady of Uganda before he dies.
This he revealed at the thanks giving party for his supporters at kasangati saaza grounds attended to by a mammoth of crowds and various leaders in the country including two of the candidates that he raced with for the same seat and these included Dr. Sowed Kayongo and Muwada Nkunyigi.
Bobiwine reminded the gathering about the fact that power belongs to them, and they can use it to cause change and get rid of the biting situation at national level.
“Many think we have reached, no we are just starting, am telling you, I implore you to use the power you have to change this country by evoking the mandate that the constitution gives you to vote for the leader of your choice.
I can confirm to you that freedom cannot be freely given to the oppressed but it must be demanded from the oppressor it’s time to demand our freedom to have a peaceful transitional of power.” Said bobi wine
“To you Barbie (his wife) I promise you that before I die will be the first lady of this country and I can repeat it anywhere and anytime.
I know the challenge is big but even if it means suffocating me financially, poisoning me or killing me am already to take on the challenge so that I make Uganda a better country for all of us to live in.
Some of these rulers tell us that we lack experience but look, I have been a ghetto president for years.” Said bobiwine
On the amendment of article 102B of the constitution, Bobi wine vowed not to support the move, he added that it’s the only chance for Ugandans especially the youth to take charge of the country.
“it’s the youth who understand the problem they are going through so this is the only chance for Ugandans to put to good use the pearl of Africa with its resources” said Bobiwine.
Bobi wine’ journey to kasangati after taking oath at parliament.
Bobi wine was escorted by a mammoth of supporters who trailed him to and from parliament however the toughest time was experienced on his way to kasangati Saaza ground where he held the thanks giving party for his supporters.
Bobi Wine was directed on where to pass by both traffic and ordinary police commanded by the Kampala metropolitan commanders that’s Norman Musinga and Frank Mwesigwa respectively.
However a scuffle ensued at kamwokya after bobiwine wanted to use the road that leads him to his businesses but only to be stopped by the KMP commander Mwesigwa prompted Bobiwine to get out of his car and push him to the waiting police van hence over powering police before using the same route.
As if this was not enough at a junction after Bukoto Heights Apartment still police tried to deter him from using the route that connects to Lusansa round about then to Kalerwe roundabout but their efforts were futile as he jumped on to a boda boda which he used up to Mpererwe junction that connects to Kyanja before getting back into his car.
At one point bobi wine did fall off the speeding boda boda though he didn’t sustain any injures.
The goons also were at work as they stole many of the supporter’s commodities including phones, necklaces among others.
