Torture: Bobi Wine sends Biblical messages to President Museveni


Bobi Wine addressing the nation on Monday from him home in Wakiso district.

Although he was not preaching, the Kyandodo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu commonly known as Bobi Wine as appealed to President Museveni to desist from torturing Ugandans.

Wine who was addressing media from his home in Magere, Wakiso district, is among more than thirty Ugandans who were allegedly tortured by Museveni’s security forces during the Arua Municipality MP by election in August.

Speaking somewhat like a preacher, he said Museveni should know that one time he’ll no longer be in authority [power].

“My president, just like there was a time when you were not in power, there will be a time when you will not be in power so treat people the way you want to be treated,” Bobi Wine appealed. This appeal, though not wholly and exactly, is an ‘abstract’ of Luke 6:31.

“My president, I want to know how you feel when you treat us like this. Grandparents don’t treat grand children like you do. A grand parent should not be brutalizing and framing grand children every time they raise an opposite opinion,” Wine added.

According to the legislator, there is a move by government to legally block them from chanting People Power slogan.

He said: “We have information that this regime has paid people to register People Power as an organization so that they can stop us from using the slogan People Power. But we are not scared. We are unstoppable.”

Mr Kyagulanyi also reveals that People Power is not a political party but an idea of everyone who feels for his/her country and that it’s provided by Article 1 of the Constitution.

To the security personnel who beat up people, Bobi Wine called on them to be a pro-people security men and women and always to remember that they are equally Ugandan who must not respond to cruel orders.
