Senior presidential advisor Moses Byaruhanga says songs by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine are not prohibited unless radios choose not to play them.
“Bobi Wine’s songs are not prohibited. Each radio has its own censorship policy,” he said Saturday while appearing on Capital radio’s “The Capital Gang” political show.
Byaruhanga said in countries which governments sing songs praising the president it is always illegal to sing opposition songs.
“For anybody who thinks when President Museveni supports you as a singer you fall, they are in for shock.”
Former diplomat Lydia Wanyoto said she would love to see a better regulated, resourced, better secured music industry.
“We should also be able to profile it. We also have issues of maturity.”
Wanyoto said she was told “there was something called Kyarenga and the people who went there had fun”.
But if Bobi Wine wants to do a political campaign, let him name it so and go campaign, she argued.
Makerere School of law don Robert Kirunda disagreed with state that Bobi Wine had not fulfilled the requirements for holding a show in Busabala.
“I don’t think it is about following guidelines, it is more than that. It is politics.”
He added: “Fate is double cross. As long as you are still alive, the weight comes down on us. Strive for fairness every day.”
