Your Excellency Future President of Uganda, Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu A.K.A Bobi Wine… We, members and supporters of NUP on social media, mindful of recent security challenges, hereby issue the following note to you, our beloved leader:A Letter to the 10th President on Uganda, His Excellency, Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu A.K.A Bobi Wine! Click To Tweet
Acquire Camping Kits Urgently
Given the hardship, you have been experiencing in accessing accommodation or hotel facilities after your rallies, kindly acquire camping kits urgently.
We are worried that once they realize that they cannot block you from hotels, they will change tactics to make hotels unsafe for NUP and its leader.
They are not above using poison, arson, and other dubious means to intimidate or assassinate rivals.
Your entire team should travel with camping equipment including sleeping bags and toilet kits.
Camp in the Compound of a Security Establishment
For your safety, camp in the compound of a security establishment, a police station, or a military post or within its vicinity.
It will force them to give you security, as they will not be able to explain an attempt on your life within their compound.
As Ugandans, we have the right to security, and we are sure that the majority of members of the security corps support you to be our 10th President of the Republic of Uganda.A Letter to the 10th President on Uganda, His Excellency, Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu A.K.A Bobi Wine! Click To Tweet
Camping is not comfortable, but we are in a struggle and we must deprive ourselves of some privileges like showering and hotel beds.
We shall have a hot shower when we arrive at Statehouse, Nakasero, and Entebbe.
As you know, the road will be full of obstacles and death traps.
Do Not Lose Your Temper:
Do not lose your temper, Excellency, especially when they attack you. The Dictator wants you to get angry and lose focus on the people.
They are provoking you deliberately to test your breaking point. All Ugandans are with you, just laugh off their provocations as nothing but kicks of a dying horse.
God Bless you, God Bless Uganda People Power & Our Power.
Bobi Wine – Future President Of Uganda: The people of Uganda will rise up if Museveni rigs voteA Letter to the 10th President on Uganda, His Excellency, Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu A.K.A Bobi Wine! Click To Tweet
Robert Kyagulanyi – a pop star-turned-politician who is known by the stage name Bobi Wine – is recognized as the new face of Uganda’s opposition. But his rise to prominence has not been without its challenges.
Bobi Wine’s popularity is considered a threat to President Yoweri Museveni, who has been in office for more than 30 years. “I have never really experienced a Uganda with another president. And it is more than 80 percent of Ugandans that are in the same situation,” Bobi Wine tells Al Jazeera. “That really gets us disturbed. We have been denied an opportunity to contribute to our country. We have been excluded as a new generation. And we desire to contribute to building our country, which we know we are going to live in.”Bobi Wine talks to Al Jazeera – Talk to Al Jazeera
“Certainly, the people making decisions for us are not going to be there to either benefit or suffer from the decisions – which are evidently wrong – that they are making for us.”The Ugandan government has arrested and prosecuted Bobi Wine several times, and the opposition figure has accused security forces of torturing him. But the 37-year-old is not holding back his ambitions.In fact, he is now directly challenging President Museveni in elections expected to be held in 2021.
“We know that Museveni is planning to rig the election, he has done it in the past … But we are banking on overwhelming him because a vote can easily be rigged if it’s not overwhelming,” says Bobi Wine. “And ultimately, if President Museveni tries to rig the election … the people of Uganda will rise up and they will stop it … They are tired of this operation and they are tired and they will not take it any longer.”
But Wine stresses that he does not believe in violence and that they are using and will continue to use “all legitimate and legal ways of defending our voice.” “We are looking at breaking a dictatorship and having Uganda under civilian rule, which has never happened before.” So, will his popularity be enough to get him elected? And what are his plans for the way forward?Bobi Wine talks to Al Jazeera – Talk to Al Jazeera
