Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, was arrested and remanded to Luzira prison until 2 of May 2019. Under charges of inciting violence and holding illegal assemblies against the social media tax in 2018.

Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the Kyadondo East legislator also a Ugandan renowned singer, on Saturday confirmed that on Friday his lawyer Robert Amsterdam truly wrote to Donald Trump, president of the United States of America, seeking his attention on the present-day political situations in Uganda.

The turned politician says on April 25th 2019, he wrote a six-page petition through Amsterdam his lawyer, seeking president Trump’s attention over his political mistreatment by Uganda government.

And also other key players to the predicament of Ugandans today.

“Yes, we want to make our country’s situation (known) to as many players as possible,” Bobi Wine speaking over the telephone.

In Bobi Wine’s petition letter to president Trump, included the 2016 Kasese killings, the 2018 Arua uprisings, government meddling into electoral and judicial processes and Bobi Wine’s lessened freedoms.

However, the Minister of State, Henry Okello Oryem, responding to Singers claims, named him ‘a naïve amateur’, stating that president Trump cannot draw his attention to “an amateurish African politician,” said minister Oryem.

“Bobi Wine is sadly naïve and still in a dream if he thinks the white house will leave everything it’s doing, campaigning and promoting “American first” to waste time attending to some small time Amateurish African politician,” Minister Oryem’s statement.

Oryem adds that: “My brother should by now realise that we have seen and been in a more less identical situation before, it was effectively handled by this electoral government and all at that time the same White House was there at the time.”

Col Shaban Bantariza, the Deputy Director of Uganda Media Centre, relatedly, disdained Bobi Wine’s petition to president Trump saying it is “senseless and unhelpful” declaim.

“The only constituency for Bobi Wine to get power is through Ugandans and not Washington DC. Bobi has the stage, let him tell the world how he will do things differently. He needs to be advised that quislings have failed in the past. His predecessors tried them and they failed,”

Col Bantariza continued to say that Bobi Wine should get it into his mind that his advocacy to freeze foreign aid to Uganda, if at all it transpires will affect him as well but not government alone.
