Bobi Wine: Museveni had planned to kidnap my children, wife

I have seen regime enforcers and propagandists trying to question the travel of my children out of the country as we get close to the election!
 
Of course, everyone knows that their statements are not born out of genuineness, but out of their usual schemes to diminish our resolve to remove their corrupt regime.
 
Firstly, the nation is aware of the challenges my family has endured from the time I decided to take on the dictatorship of Gen. Yoweri Museveni. My children have lived in constant fear over the past three years. On several occasions, the cars which trail us have been trailing them, even to and from school.
 
Last year, there was a direct attack on a car transporting two of them from school, forcing us to change their schools, and try to strengthen security around them.
 
For most of this year, they have largely lived as prisoners; very rarely leaving home. As we near the election, I received credible information from sources within the system of plans by the regime to cause physical harm to them!
 
You all recall that in 2017, at the height of the Age Limit debate, they threw grenades at my son, Solomon Sekayi's bedroom window, and left a message that I should back off, or the consequences would be dire.
 
The regime has made it a deliberate plot to attack me, and when they don't, attack those who are close to me so as to demoralise me! There is nothing Museveni is not ready to do in order to stay in power against the will of Ugandans!
 
That is why therefore, when I received information of pending physical attacks on me, my wife and kidnap of our children, friends in the diaspora reached out to us, offered to host them for a while! That does not mean that me or my wife are any safer by remaining around.
 
But our effort is to ensure they don't kidnap one of these minors and try to use them to coerce us into subjugation!
 
The regime propagandists should be very ashamed. In a free and democratic country, nobody should live in fear simply because they oppose the government in power.
 
In a free country, a presidential candidate would never have to wear a bullet-proof jacket and helmet in order to go for campaigns!
 
That is the country we are struggling to build. Gen. Museveni should even be more ashamed that 35 years later, children have to yet again run away from their country over fears of vengeful attacks!
 
You can also see the unprofessional conduct of the immigration staff who went ahead to share confidential travel information of minors with the public. None of our institutions is independent. Every part of government is being (mis)used and abused by the regime, that's the country we are living in.

Juwait kali,

Come to Uganda to live with who & when will I see my kids?

Akot was one of working students who helped the National Consultative Council, chaired by E. Rugumayo, to put Uganda on feet after fall of Idi Amin!

So, is Akot helping Uganda today from far not better than just ignoring Ugandans as the rest of the world do?

How is Bobi Wine going to see his kids now, help thel with home work...?

Akot left Uganda for family reason & not to be refugee in the EU country!

While working in Uganda, Akot salary, payed tax, lived in a beautiful fenced & house!

From far, Akot wants Ugandans to get Museveni & family out in UNITY & put in place a governance they want & begin ensuring a better future to every child!

Is this too much sacrifice & you prefer Ugandans legalising Museveni through fake elections to ensure he rules for life & passes the seat to his son?

Juwait kali,

A country belongs to its people & not to rulers & it's the people who give themselves chance by ensuring they are well governed!

Listen, developed countries are so quiet about what Museveni does to Ugandans because of the tribalistic system that goes against their principle - if of their politician gets at Museveni, he/she will lose post as that will be supporting tribalism & their people won't let that go without punishment!

See how Europeans have come out against D. Trump because he supports 'white supremacy'?

When Museveni will be declared winner, what will you & Ugandans do?

Have you assured your future, that of your kids & will just help legalise Museveni through fake elelctions, knowing his son will take his place when he dies?

Who will Akot be ensuring a future for in Uganda while far away from own kids?
