Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has said people power across Africa continent has inspired him as he considers running for the 2021 presidential elections.
The legislator made the remarks while appearing on France24’s popular live show Eyes on Africa, on Wednesday evening where he also confirmed plans to challenge Uganda longest serving president HE Yoweri Museveni in the next polls.
“The people in Africa are standing up to the dictators that inspires us to believe more, to push more, and indeed to work more to the liberation of our country,” said the musician and politician.
In an interview for France 24’s Eye on Africa, Bobi Wine also discussed his odds of running in the 2021 presidential election, changes he would implement if elected, and what he believes it will take to end corruption in Uganda.
The budding opposition figure has on many occasions accused Mr. Museveni of presiding over a-three decade of iron-fisted rule.
In the same show, the People Power patron noted that President Museveni has for long been using the army to commit atrocities to own citizens but now “he is more worried than ever before.”
He noted that he would support any other joint opposition candidate agreed upon by all opposition stakeholders adding that his primary role is to dislodge president Museveni and not become president.
