Bobi Wine has urged his supporters in Budaka to come out in big numbers on January 14 to vote for a new government.
The National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential flag bearer Bobi Wine has urged his supporters in Budaka to come out in big numbers on January 14 to vote for a new government.
Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine made the remarks on Thursday while holding his political campaigns in Budaka district. He said that the ruling party President Yoweri Museveni has only 40 days left in office.
Kyagulanyi who also urged his supporters to come out in large numbers and make the dream a reality by voting for him noted that the incumbent president has never faced a determined opponent like him.
He noted that Museveni has tried to put him down by calling him a thug and describing him as a violent person but he is still very strong and determined.
“Museveni has never faced an opponent like myself. So many people look like me and they all have a background like mine. That is why they call us thugs because they believe that every poor person is a thug,” Kyagulanyi said.
He added; “Fellow Ugandans, we have exactly 40 days to change this government. 40 days. We therefore stand here to tell Museveni and his colleagues that their days are numbered.”
Meanwhile, on the same day, Kyagulanyi also campaigned in the districts of Kibuku and Manafwa. The police yet again fired teargas to disperse his supporters as he headed to his specific campaign venues.
In Kibuku, Kyagulanyi, who was dressed in an all-red attire with a bulletproof vest on top and a helmet said that he is not ready to quit the race despite countless efforts by the government to put him off.
Kyagulanyi noted that when the police aimed bullets as well as explosives at his car many people thought that he would withdraw his tools from the presidential race.
“You’ve seen enough of Kyagulanyi, now let me give you some Bobi Wine. When they shot at my car many people thought I should halt the campaign. I’m a double-edged sword, I now come to you as Bobi Wine,” he noted.
Meanwhile, this comes at a time when there are still confusing reports about an incident that happened earlier this week when Kyagulanyi was blocked from holding campaigns in Kayunga district.
An explosive that the public has since cited was aimed at the presidential aspirant was seen exploding on top of his car as he had a verbal exchange with police officers, questioning them why they could not let him campaign freely.
The police spokesperson, however, on Wednesday said that it was one of Kyagulanyi’s private bodyguard who aimed the explosive at his boss.
“Our security detail, the crime intelligence officers had picked some images from there and identified the person who had this canister as one of the private security members of his detail. We’ve started tracking him down and we expect to get him. Our interest is to know how he got it,” part of Enanga’s statement read on Wednesday.
Contrary to Enanga’s statement, NBS TV took a clear insight of the video and it was seen that amidst the Kyagulanyi and police exchange, his bodyguard, who has now been identified as Norbert Ariho, is seen in the background of Kyagulanyi next to a white car.
“By the time the explosive lands on the car, Norbert is seen smiling and looking away, unaware of what is yet to happen. So if we are to go frame by frame, the explosive came from the side Kyagulanyi was standing on, fired from a gun,” part of NBS TV’s statement read giving an insight.
