Ugandan presidential hopeful, Bobi Wine claims the election will not be fair and free” come January 2021, he told Christiane Amanpour of CNN.
As Uganda draw closer to the election, suppression of the opposition by the incumbent president and allies has recently increased. Opposition groups, in particular, the National Unity Platform (NUP) under Bobi Wine is being blocked to access radio stations, TV stations and can not even campaign.
Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, known by his stage name Bobi Wine, is a Ugandan singer, actor, and businessman who three years ago turned into a politician. He currently serves as Member of Parliament for Kyadondo County East constituency in Wakiso District, in Uganda’s Central Region.
Bobi is a leading candidate and opposition member whose campaign has so far seen so much focus internationally and locally.
He told Amanpour on Tuesday that he survived three association attempts by the security agents. He believes president Museveni is responsible for such an attempt.
More than 40 people last month in protest against Bobi Wine arrest. The incumbent president says Bobi Wine is “not respecting COVID-19 roles and regulations” and he asked police to stop the huge gathering.
Bobi is insisting that Museveni must go and he strongly believe it is time for a change in Uganda.
