Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine spent last week visiting and connecting with aging politicians.

He started by paying a call on yet another elder, Al Hajji Nasser Ntege Sebaggala aka Seya.

Last year, Seya was admitted at Kibuli Islamic hospital after reportedly eating spoilt jack fruits.

 “I am glad to have found him in better health, and pray for his full recovery,” Bobi Wine said.

The renowned politician contested as an independent presidential candidate in 2006 general elections before dropping out of the race.


Bobi Wine said he was also extremely humbled and delighted to be invited to a thanksgiving dinner for Hon. Justice Professor George Wilson Kanyeihamba.

“It was an honour to interact with several senior citizens, and to see many of them offer advice and encouragement to us as we soldier on.”

He added: “My prayer would be that our generation works tirelessly and gives these elders the transition they have longed to see for decades. God bless Uganda.”

Hosts DP leaders

He earlier hosted leaders of the Democratic Party and discussed a wide range of issues.

“Most importantly, we agreed that the struggle has reached a critical phase and each one of us must put aside anything that would divert us and focus on the mission to liberate our country.”

He added: “The more we unite, the stronger we are. We are United Forces of Change.”

Rejects security

Meanwhile, NBS TV reported that Bobi Wine rejected government’s offer to give him security saying that he can take charge of his own security with the help of Ugandans.

Recently, the minister of state for Internal Affairs Obiga Kania while addressing the Parliamentary Committee of Defence and Internal Affairs said that government had taken extra steps to protect Kyagulanyi.

Kania argued that ever since Kyagulanyi declared his presidential ambitions, it has become the duty of government to ensure that no body hurts him.

While meeting different groups of People Power supporters at his home in Magere on Saturday, Kyagulanyi scoffed off the minister’s comments saying that Ugandans will protect him and not the state.

Kyagulanyi tactfully asked the minister if he had already offered him the security and they started with Yasin Kawuma, his slain driver who was shot in Arua in August 2018.

“I saw them saying that Bobi Wine will be given security by force, whether he wants it or not. You want to give me the security you gave Abiriga? You want to give me the same security that you gave the late Kirumira? Joan Kagezi? Did you give me the said security and it started with Yasin Kawuma?” he is quoted as saying.

“You have a minister who can even call the President but she is also crying that they want to kill her. I have not heard them talking about giving her security,” Kyagulanyi said.

He said said that if the government is planning any attack against him, he is ready but they should know that Ugandans would rise to protect him.
