A granny in Masaka city over the weekend baby-sat National Unity Platform President Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine to show him love.
“When Gen M7 was bombing his way into power back in 1986, President Bobi Wine was an infant, then staying with Hajjat Aidah Kyosimbonanya, his grandmother,” said Leader of Opposition in Parliament Mathias Mpuuga.
Anyone who has heard the President call himself Swaib, Hajjat Aidah is the person who gave him the name, Mpuuga explained.
She is 95 years old today but still keenly following the political developments in the country.
“We visited her as the President concluded his tour of Masaka,” Mpuuga noted.
Earlier, Bobi Wine joined congregants at Kitovu Catholic Church in Masaka District to celebrate the Church’s 40th anniversary.
He extolled religious leaders, more so from the Catholic Church, for boldly speaking the truth about how we are governed despite the intimidation and persecution that some of their colleagues occasionally suffer for doing so.
“It was in this same spirit that I visited Fr. Richard Mugisha of Bisanje Catholic Parish who was recently framed with murder charges after a video of him preaching change went viral on social media,” Bobi Wine noted.
In honour of his memory, he also visited the final resting place of late comrade Francis ‘Frank’ Kalibbala Ssenteza.
Frank was murdered by military police during campaigns on 27th November last year.
“I have deep respect for the citizens who braved unprovoked brutality from security officers led by the police force to welcome us into the district and wish us a safe journey.”
