Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu has again decried President Museveni’s long stay in power.

Speaking while appearing on Voice of America, Bobi Wine said that its unrealistic Mr. Museveni who came to power when was only four years of age, is still changing the Same face.

“Norbert Mao said that if you’re paid to be stupid, your intelligence ceases to matter. I’m very disappointed to see a person I hold in high regard say such things and I believe when he leaves he’ll regret these words. Uganda isn’t a kingdom, it’s a republic but our president has been changing faces all this time, the president came to power when I was just 4 years old.” He said responding to the Ugandan Ambassador to the USA H.E Mull Katende.

Hon. Kyagulanyi added that unlike those who have failed to understand what he stands for, he does not to speak only for the opposition but for the people of Uganda especially my generation, the generation you clearly don’t understand and not connected with.

“In Uganda, a murder case can happen and it’ll take Police hours before they show up but if it’s a gathering of young people, police and the military show up in less than 2 minutes. I stand for freedom, if we were born in a country that had no constitution it would be okay, but we read the constitution that says power belongs to the people. Our aspirations are far bigger than Muhoozi, than the lucky few, the girls I grew up with die while giving birth.” He noted.

Bobi Wine also added when asked about the Arua Mayhem. “I came on crutches because I was in deep pain, I’ve been treated well by doctors back home and here and I hope to be back on my feet very soon. I was brutally tortured by a section of the Ugandan command called the SFC but I’m here and still alive. It’s not new for the Ugandan government to do things and later deny them, I was tortured along with people like Hon. Francis Zaake, Attiku, some Mps and 33 other people in Arua.”
