Museveni speaks ‘luyaye’ to rally the ghetto

The message was recorded in a video at State House, Entebbe.

“Waliwo wano anjigiliza oluyaye,” he said, meaning “there is someone here teaching the language of the streets”.

Luyaye is a street jargon or Luganda hybrid understood by street urchins and people from the ghettos (slums).

The teacher turned out to be musician Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool, the leader of the #SilentMajority.
