The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) Women league boss Hon. Lydia Wanyoto has called upon presidential hopeful Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Sentamu to feel free and enjoy the freedom in Uganda.
Speaking while appearing on the Capital Gang talkshow, Wanyoto stated that the ruling party like competing on a fair ground therefore no one will sabotage his (Bobi Wine) consultations.
“I have been asked If Hon. Kyagulanyi would be able to consult and my answer is yes. And why not if he meets all the requirements. How he will be able to juggle being an MP, a presidential candidate and a great musician is his to manage. I wish him well” Wanyoto said.
The musician turned politician last week released his presidential consultations programme which kicks off today Monday January 6, 2020.
“As you all know by now, we start nationwide consultations on Monday next week, beginning with Kyadondo East and then six districts in Northern Uganda,” he said on Saturday.
For the past months, Bobi Wine said his policy team of experts has been working on compressing his ideas into a policy document which he hopes to launch soon.
“The reason why we did not release it earlier was because we deliberately want to include the views of the people of Uganda which we hope to get through these consultations.”
He added: “We are people power and we believe the people understand best what kind of country they would love to live in and leave behind for future generations.”
On Friday, Bobi Wine said he sent out teams to book venues in the seven districts where he intends to begin from, and deliver the relevant documents to the local authorities and the DPCs.
The specific districts of Northern Uganda are; Gulu District (Tuesday 7th Jan), Lira District (Wednesday 8th Jan), Adjumani District (Thursday 9th Jan), Yumbe District (Friday 10th Jan), Arua District (Saturday 11th Jan), and Zombo District (Sunday 12th Jan).
“We intend to reach all corners of Uganda, and our hope is that security agencies will not seek to interfere with us.”
Bobi said he has deliberately complied with all the laws, including those he disagrees with such as the Public Order Management Act.
He has further written to the IGP Okoth Ochola notifying him of the developments from the different districts and requested him to direct the police officers at different levels to comply with the law.
