I can Smell Victory and Freedom from A far – Bobi Wine

Kyadondo East Lawmaker Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has implored Ugandans to raise up and join the freedom fighters caravan.

Speaking during the Democratic Party reunion event in Jinja, Kakinda Stadium, Bobi Wine noted that Ugandans shall soon be free.  

 “We shall soon be free. I can smell freedom from a far. I can see it in a distance. I can sense it.I want to use this opportunity to send a message to three categories of people- the people of Uganda who are struggling to redeem this country from oppression (both those who are here and those who are in all corners of Uganda), fellow leaders of the struggle (those who are gathered here today and those who are not here), and finally I will send a message to President Museveni and the NRM leadership (those who are here and those who are not here). Bobi Wine said.

Comrades, shall we let this continue in our times? Should we? This is a question for all of us to answer.

To my fellow leaders, Uganda is ready. Are we ready? When they see us, what do they see? Do they see people moving together for a common mission or do they see forces in disarray? That is why we have been preaching unity on every occasion. That is why we speak with Dr. Besigye and Gen. Muntu. That is why we speak with Comrade Mao and Hon. Asuman Basalirwa. That is why we associate with the DP bloc and all forces of change. That is why we speak with all forces of change. Why? Because a people united can never be defeated.

Bobi Wine added that in the Bible, in the book of Exodus, God gave Pharaoh up to ten signs–locusts, frogs, lice, boils, a hailstorm, etc.

Likewise, God has sent signs to Museveni…like Dr. Ssemwogerere, Dr. Besigye [ex-personal doctor], Gen. Muntu [ex-army commander], ex-good friend Gaddafi in Libya etc.”

Finally, my message to President Museveni is this- the people of Uganda are on standby. The plane is on the tarmac- ready for take off!! The people of Uganda are ready to get rid of your oppressive regime. You still have a chance. In the Bible, in the book of Exodus, God gave Pharaoh up to ten signs! When each sign was given, Pharaoh simply hardened his heart.

At each turn God was saying to Pharaoh, let my people go! But Pharaoh refused. Locusts came, then frogs, lice, boils, a hailstorm, etc. But Pharaoh refused to heed the signs. He continued to harden his heart! Well, until it was too late and he fell into the Red Sea with his entire army.

Likewise, God has over the years sent different signs to you, President Museveni, and told you, “Let my people go.” There was a sign of Dr. Paul Kawanga Ssemwogerere. Then a sign of Dr. Kizza Besigye your former personal doctor. Then the sign of Gen. Mugisha Muntu, your former army commander, and all your comrades who said enough was enough!

Then God sent you the sign of your good friend Gaddafi in Libya. It didn’t end there- Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Zimbabwe were all signs to you. Just a few months back, you got the signs of Algeria and Sudan!

Sadly like Pharaoh, you have ignored all these signs and hardened your heart even more. Like Pharaoh, the more signs you get, the more you increase the oppression of the people.

You have ignored the signs of Professors and Generals. The signs of doctors and engineers. All of them! Having ignored all these, God is sending you one more sign- the rastas have risen up and are demanding for democracy. The sign of the determination of Uganda’s young people is clear. Will you heed this time round? The choice is yours. You can redeem the little that is left, or you can wait until it is too late.

God bless Uganda!
