Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has called on the youth to ‘do something’ to counter the continued murders by security operatives against opposition supporters.
An emotional Bobi Wine made the remarks while at the burial of Daniel Kyeyune in Namayumba village, Nakaseke district on Thursday. Kyeyune was shot in the head reportedly by a Local Defense Unit personnel in Nansana Municipality on Tuesday evening as he and other People Power supporters, returned from the burial of Rita Nabukenya who was reportedly knocked down by a police patrol truck in Nakawa on Monday this week.
Nabukenya who was dressed in People Power attire was knocked dead while on her way to the blocked Bobi Wine consultation meeting in Ndeeba. Bobi Wine said those security officers killing Ugandans should remember that they live within the same communities, their children go to the same schools as other Ugandans, they shop from the same markets.
“To you gun-toting soldiers, you were never born with those uniforms, you were never born with those guns. We can also fit in those uniforms. Don’t think that you are any different from us. You have the same blood and can feel the same pain as us. Continue doing what you do but very soon time will come when we shall fight back. Don't behave as though you live in heaven,” a bitter Bobi Wine said.
Bobi Wine said those who have been asking him on what to do next, know exactly what to do to 'snitches' who continue to betray the struggle and sell out members of the opposition.
“When you’re trying to escape out of prison and there is always that guy who reports your plans to the warden, don’t you know what you do to such a person? You know what you and that is exactly what you should do to those killing you,” he said.
Bobi Wine also said berated Luweero residents for giving President Museveni all the avenues to exploit and humiliate them even further after using their jungles and child soldiers to shoot his way to power.
"Don't you know those people shooting your relatives? Don't you know who killed Ziggy Wine, don't you know who killed Sweet Pepsi, don't you know what to do to such people? So then why are you asking me for what to do next?...You people who go on kneeling down for Museveni's envelopes instead of joining the struggle, you are going to die...This struggle was started by Dr Kawanga Ssemwogerere and advanced further by Dr Kizza Besigye. We have everything in our favour. Ugandans have never been this united...We can't promise that we shall remove Museveni from power on such a date, but whatever action you do in your own way contributes to the struggle," he added.
Bobi Wine said he has no sympathies for the silent Ugandans who see all the corruption, state murders and claim they prefer a peaceful Uganda instead of engaging in the struggle, saying there can never be peace if there is no freedom.
“I would have sold out already,” he said.
“I have been offered lots of money but I have young children, I have to be certain of their future. I don’t want them to live in the kind of uncertainties that our generations have lived,” he said.
