Bobi Wine vows to continue fighting for freedom

Bobi Wine addressing supporters

Bobi Wine addressing supporters

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi has said that he will not relent on his quest for freedom and justice for all in Uganda. 

Kyagulanyi was speaking from his home in Magere, three hours after his arrival from the United States of America where he's been seeking further treatment.

 
On arrival at Entebbe Airport, Kyagulanyi was roughed up by police officers who drove him straight to his home in Magere, Kasangati. Several of his supporters who had thronged Entebbe road were either beaten or arrested by security. 
 
"From the plane they searched me, they took away my passport and all the documents and I don’t know where they're but am glad to be here [in Uganda]. I didn’t know where they were taking me, they just grabbed me." he said. 
 
"I have come to continue exactly where I stopped, I’m going to fight on and like I said, we must get our freedom or we shall die trying to fight for freedom. It looks like the government is determined to keep us slaves in our own country. I cannot ask for asylum anywhere else. I can’t be a refugee, no. I’m a Ugandan and I will stay in Uganda and I will fight for that freedom. And if I don’t get that freedom, at least my children or their children will get it."
 
Kyagulani has been in the US for the last 19 days seeking treatment after being allegedly tortured by the presidential guards, Special Forces Command (SFC) following his arrest on August 14. He was arrested alongside 32 others on suspicion that they had stoned President Yoweri Museveni's vehicle. The suspects have been charged with treason and are out on bail.  
 
Probably to confuse the journalists and the waiting supporters, two separate police convoys set off from Entebbe - driving at breakneck speed.
 
The convoy with Bobi Wine drove straight Magere while the other drove to Kasangati police station. For a while several journalists and supporters were fooled into thinking that he was being held at the police station.
 
Indeed, crowds started swelling outside Kasangati police station - chanting pro-Bobi Wine slogans before they were dispersed by the presidential guards. 

Asked about the status of his health, Kyagulanyi said he is still experiencing some pain in some parts of his body despite the treatment he underwent while abroad, but overall, he said he was feeling fine.

Now that the SFC is being abused and turned into Mr. M7's opposition terror Brigade; it should be renamed Special Terror Brigade (STB) ou unit.

Let me go out on a limb here and advise MP Kyagulanyi (and he probably does not need my advice, but it's ok):

Please take out completely the negative feeling of "...or we shall die trying to fight for freedom." This is the 2nd time you state that, and it is depressing.

No, if death is applicable to People Power, it is the enemy of Ugandans who will die fighting against people's desire to re-build the country into a fair and equitable republic.

At this point, though, I don't see death even to the enemy -- the Despot-for-32-years just needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel, pack up and leave.

And believe me he shall leave.

Bobi Wine,

Your quest for FREEDOM of Uganda & its people is human, dignified, logic & welcomed! But you MUST now become a Nationalist & make non Buganda land your base of operation-campaign ground as you already have support in Buganda!

Let's go back in time: Dr Obote made Western/Eastern Uganda his base of operation & this is gave him & Ugandans open mindedness as to what a country is, how to bring people TOETHER for common cause, especially INDEPENDENCE!

But of course, Kampala/Entebbe are zones where final say is made, where Ugandans MUST come out in FULL, especially today to block demon Museveni, who can only be thrown out by Ugandans blocking him & not through election he organises, controls in a country he believes he alone can rule by right of birth, even when he was born in a shithole Ugandans don't know!...

...Bobi, it's the rest of tribes you MUST bring to your cause & make it their cause, then it will be the cause of EVERY Ugandan, the people who MUST be brought TOGETHER against Museveni, their common enemy, the only one destroying them & wants to own every tribal land!

It's UNITY of Ugandans with just that 1 opposition leader so desperately needed, that will give chanc to EVERY Ugandan!

Dr Obote used to sing: everybody UPC & names district by district from East to West & North to South then finish is campaign in Central!

Bobi, Central is your finishing point too & not starting point!

I still remember Acholi DPs so sad P. Semogerere didn't go to sing to them & they waited waited...!

But today, Ugandans really need leadership to UNITE them because without this, Musevnei is there till he drops dead of old age & we know demons live +90 years!

Akot will repeat: Bobi MUST now become a Nationalist & make non Buganda land base of operation-campaign as he already has support in Buganda!

The RED to Akot means that person wants Museveni to control Kampala-Entebbe till he drops dead of old age in +30 years!

If no Ugandan is accepted by ALL, then any opposer who will stand up against Museveni will be reduced to NOTHING & by Ugandans in police, to ensure Museveni stays on!

But if that just 1 Ugandan makes the rest of the country base of operation & brings Ugandans THGETHER, it's Museveni who will not have Kampala-Entebbe in the end,but Ugandans!

Do Ugandans want Museveni to rule them till he dies of old age? Then what after as they don't accept 1 of their own to lead them?

What's wrong with Bobi or any other Ugandan bringing our people together to throw Musevnei out once & for good?

Jama, agreed, but,

The state of anarchy is paradise that ensures Museveni's continuity: he is in control of every move his opposers make & will do so as long as Ugandans don't UNITE around just 1 of their own to identify who they want in top place!

See how Nationalist French Marine Le Pen is dying defending her country's sovereignty face to Brussels that wants to be the Museveni of the zone!

Yet, as naive as Ugandans, some French opposition politicians have asked that M. Le Pen be subjected to mental health check! But they never ask islamic extremists leaders who kill French to be subjected to this!

Well, D. Trump's opposers asked for the same but the president was declared sane & in very good health!

Museveni has Ugandans where he wants & unless they UNITE with just 1 of thier own, the demon is there for the next 30 years!

Quoting Fuller:

At this point, though, I don't see death even to the enemy -- the Despot-for-32-years just needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel, pack up and leave.

Thanks, yet,

The people power is so so lacking in Uganda!

Can Ugandans imagine how it would be if tribal leaders stand down & shatter the tribalistic system & they UNITE against Museveni?

The outside world knows UNITY of Ugandans will be the end of Museveni, why don't Ugandans & why do they prefer being slaves without say in a country they say is theirs?...

...Museveni will NEVER leave unless thrown out by Ugandans in UNITY so that he does not use police/army against them!

UNITY of Ugandans will force army/police that belong to Museveni now to decide: go with the demon or start defending the people who pay them!

No tribe has interest in letting Museveni go on, right?

No tribe wants to control another, right?

So, Why maintain the tribalistic system keeping the demon in power, more so Ugandans can go for independent states after Museveni is thrown out in UNITY, if they don't want to Reform the Republic?

The entire world knows it's Ugandans keeping their common enemy in power & it's time to ask: do Ugadnans really want Museveni out?

Museveni is not leaveing unless thrown out in UNITY, but do Ugandans really want him out?
