Kyadondo East legislator, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has called upon the youths to exhibit love for Uganda and desist from being divided by individuals seeking personal interests.
He was speaking on Sunday during Youth Day celebrations in Kangulumira parish, Kayunga district, where he was chief guest.
He said, youth should embrace love for every individual including those they disagree with politically, as a way of attracting them to their line of thinking.
“I urge you to love one another and our country, and desist from being divided on tribal lines. Always be peaceful, send love signals and follow the right pass even amidst life challenges,” Bobi told the congregation which kept chanting ‘People Power’.
“There was never an opportunity in the history of this country for the youth to be as many and united as it is today. And we are blessed that there are no ethnic segregations amongst ourselves, may be at the top leadership,” he noted.
Meanwhile, the singer and opposition politician said he was surprised that he was allowed access to the venue giveng the numerous roadblocks and heavy security deployment he ecountered on his way to Kayunga.
“I didn’t know that I could be allowed to reach here because on my way. I found different Police officers deployed in several areas but I am not scared. Every time we rise to raise our voices on the management of our country, this is what they do,” he added.
On his ‘People Power’ movement, Bobi Wine said that although many people do not want him to hint on it, he simply roots it from the constitution which provides that power belongs to the people. He asked people to register for national identity cards, saying that is where their power lies.
He concluded by thanking the Police in the Kayunga for not arresting him and asked them not to do so on his way back, before singing his ‘Freedom’ song to the highly excited audience.
The event was also attended by Bbaale county MP, Nsamba Kumama and District NRM Chairperson, Moses Kaliisa Kalangwa.
