Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine cancelled his planned journey to the United Kingdom where he had been invited to attend a session of House of Commons on democracy in Uganda.
The session on declining state of democracy in Uganda gets underway Tuesday January 8, 2019 starting at 2pm at Westminster Hall.
UK Member of Parliament for Stockton South Paul Williams said they will be debating means to see a strong and prosperous, independent Uganda with strong democratic institutions.
“I am interested in the future of Uganda. In Bobi Wine, I see a person who has a good understanding of poverty, inequality and he has a good vision for the future, said Paul who will table the motion.
Bobi Wine’s political aide, Nicodemus Musoke, had said the legislator would travel.
Those coordinating the development Godfrey Ssekisonge and Belinda Atim, had said Bobi would attend the House of Commons, address guests at Oxford Union and Oxford University.
He would then embark on US tour before holding a music performance in Kingston, Jamaica.
Lawyer Andrew Karamagi who also communicates for Bobi Wine told edge.ug that although he was invited, the singer would not make it.
“He won’t be going to the UK,” Karamagi told edge.ug on Tuesday morning.
He cited “urgent commitments” back home. “It is true he was invited though.”
