Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has quietly returned back to Uganda from Washington DC in America where he has been for a week.
His colleague and Mityana Municipality MP Hon Francis Zaake was the first to welcome Bobi Wine home.
“Welcome back one and only Generational President #2021 #TuliyambalaEngule #GetYourNationalID #People_Power,” Zaake wrote on social media and shared pictures of Bobi Wine at Entebbe International Airport.
In the pictures are Bobi Wine, his team and his son Solomon donning a red “people power” cap.
As we gathered, the singing MP touched down at around 4pm on Friday.
He was welcomed by his squad led by Eddie Mutwe and social media handler Ashburg Kato.
He didn’t have to cause unnecessary standoffs with security forces, an insider told edge.ug.
Bobi Wine apparently had no clearance from the police and wanted to avoid any eventualities.
“They believe that the damage he has done is enough and will warrant government to arrest him,” a source told us.
While in America, Bobi Wine told CNN’s Robyn Curnow Wine he is “seriously considering” running for president in 2021 where he is expected to face Museveni who has ruled Uganda since 1986.
Wine said dictatorships have thrived in Africa by suppressing young people, and getting young voters to the polls could help change the game.
“Ugandans cannot be free unless they free themselves from military rule and lawless rule,” Wine said.
“We started a campaign calling upon all people of Uganda, especially the young people that have been so apathetic to go ahead and register themselves and be voters. Not just supporters but voters.”
“We believe that by the time we get to the election which is about two years away, we will have many Ugandans registered as voters and overwhelming Museveni looks like our only way out.”
