Babu Owino attack attack Museveni over Uganda travel ban

by James Ateenyi

Embakasi East member of parliament Babu Owino has spoken out on the ban imposed on him by Kampala government.

Owino who was set to come to Uganda for Bobi Wine concert said said the ban shows how backward and authoritarian the Kampala regime is.

“This draconian veto came just ahead of my trip to Kampala to attend the Kyarenga Festival yesterday. It is a backward and authoritarian response to my unequivocal support for Honorable Robert Kyagulanyi and the young people of Uganda against the tyranny of President Yoweri Museveni,” Owino stated.

Below is Owino full statement;

I am in receipt of official communication from the Minister for Internal Affairs for Uganda General Haji Abubakar Jeje Odongo banning my travel to Uganda without special clearance from his office.

This draconian veto came just ahead of my trip to Kampala to attend the Kyarenga Festival yesterday. It is a backward and authoritarian response to my unequivocal support for Honorable Robert Kyagulanyi and the young people of Uganda against the tyranny of President Yoweri Museveni.

Honorable Bobi Wine and I remain brothers in ideology and no amount of intimidation will stop us from working together to liberate the people of Africa!

I wish to categorically state that General Haji Jeje Odongo’s travel ban will not deter me from agitating for greater democratic space in Uganda, Kenya and indeed, the entire continent. I will not falter in my pursuit for respect for human rights and the meaningful involvement of the youth in our nations’ affairs.

The arc of the moral universe may be long but it always bends towards justice.President Museveni must know that nothing lasts forever. He has overstayed his welcome and soon, the popular wishes of the Ugandan people will outweigh his use of force and violence.

I urge the youth in Uganda not to be discouraged from this minor set back,I will come to Uganda whether the guy is alive or dead. We will overcome!

Signed and dated,
Comrade Babu Owino,
MP, Embakasi East and Leader, Youth For Africa Movement.
