At least 84 artists and entertainers have joined Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s National Unity Platform (NUP) party.
This came shortly after five Members of Parliament and three mayors joined the same party.
Here is what Bobi Wine said:
Today was one of the best days of my life. There is nothing as fulfilling for me as a leader as seeing very talented people embrace our message to personally get involved in the affairs of our country. Previously, we artistes were looked at as unserious people who had no idea what was going on, or who were simply supposed to be used to push other people’s agendas.
But today at our headquarters, seeing 84 artistes, entertainers and other media personalities join the National Unity Platform was an absolute honor. I am sure the dictatorship feels the heat – because they understand the power of art in driving a people’s revolution!
There is nothing that will be out of our reach because we are a united generation.
I am also very happy to receive many other leaders at all levels who are joining the Platform. Let’s do this.
