Kyadondo East member of parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu popularly known as Bobi Wine who has been leading the resistance president has spoken about running for president positions in Uganda.
Speaking to DW, Bobi Wine said the question of presidency is diversionary as the current objective is to remove remove president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni from power.
“I think the question of the presidency is diversionary. This should not be reduced to a single person. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, that this is not about me. It’s about all of us and each of us needs to play his part. Of course if there is a part for me to play I can not overlook it. But right now we need to do first things first. We need to come together, we need to realize what we are able to achieve. And then go ahead and achieve it. When we get to that bridge we shall cross it” Robert Kyagulanyi.
About his vision for Uganda Bobi Wine said he is looking towards living in free country. He added that he is to live in a country where everyone is equal regardless of their political affiliations, religion and tribe.
“As a person I want to live in a free Uganda. But as an ideology, we are people who want to feel that we matter in our country. We want to live in a country where all of us are equal and all of us have the same opportunities. No matter your tribe, no matter who knows you, no matter which family you come from, that is the Uganda that we want: a country where you can talk about everything without being beaten. Where, even if you are a boda boda rider (motorcycle taxi), if you have all the requirements, you don’t get arrested because somebody wants to extort money from you. That’s the country we want, a country where citizens can feel safe. It is a wide vision for Uganda, but most importantly we want to have the freedom to imagine it, because it seems that now we are not allowed to” Robert Kyagulanyi speaking to DW.
