Two weeks ago, when hosted on a weekly political talk show at NBS Tv, veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda poured cold water on Bobi wine’s hopes of challenging president Museveni in 2021.
During the show when engaging with the people power spokesperson Joel Ssenyonyi, Mwenda called People power supporters as unemployed lumpens which caused mixed reactions in the political domain.
“People Power is a group of unemployed intolerant lumpens”-Said Andrew Mwenda.
“Unemployment is not acharacter but a situation, and for your information not all unemployed are lumpens. There are even intellectuals like Andrew Mwenda who are lumpens- Ssenyonyi replied.
However in a recent tweet by the People power boss Bobi wine, he through a jibe at Andrew Mwenda comparing the lumpens of 2019 and violent Bandits of 1980.
