People power won in Bugiri, says Bobi Wine

Bobi Wine and Basalirwa in Bugiri

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has congratulated his “brother” Hon. Asuman Basalirwa on the outstanding victory in the Bugiri Municipality election.

According to the provisional results, Hon. Basalirwa won in over 95% of the polling stations with wide margins. Against all odds.

“This is so humbling and I must congratulate the people of Bugiri for heeding our message and owning it as their own. Abaana be’Bugiri, mwebare ino, mwebalire ilala!” Bobi said.

He clarified that the victory is not only for Hon. Basalirwa–it is a victory for people power.

He said it is yet another evidence that the people have the power and if they exercise it, there is nothing they cannot achieve.

“I thank the other candidates, especially our sister in the struggle, Eunice Namatende and the FDC party for running a good race. Although we were on different sides in this election, I am glad that we mostly behaved with maturity towards each other and did not lose sight of the ultimate goal to liberate our country Uganda.”

Bobi said in this kind of struggle, opposition cannot agree on all issues all the time. It shall not always agree but it must always remember that all pro-democracy Ugandans are allies and must reflect that in word and action.

“I welcome Honourable Basalirwa to the 10th Parliament. We are lucky to have him join us, and the people of Bugiri are lucky to have him represent them.”

“I cannot forget to mention our comrades who were arrested for no reason whatsoever and are still in prison for over 76 hours now! While our lawyers do everything to secure their release, we, the people must take note of this sickening impunity and bring it to an end.”

Basalirwa camped at Iganga police station on Saturday to push for the release of those arrested.

In a statement, Ssentongo Abdulnoor Kyamundu, JEEMA spokesperson, lauded Ugandans who advocate for a new formation in the politics of transformation, unity and generational ascendency to the governance and leadership of a great country.

He said Bugiri municipality now has a Member of Parliament who is truly a son of the municipality.
