Bobi Wine unveils `red army’

Bobi Wine denounced

But some refused to be part of the Bobi Wine team to avoid the confusion. The Soroti Municipality Speaker Isaac Elakuna refused a position on the team saying he is a staunch member of FDC.

“Dear friends, I have read my name being circulated on social media as one of the people power coordinators in Teso… this is all good gestures but I want to categorically make it clear that I am a staunch member of FDC and I do not have any intentions of changing my political affiliation.”

But some like Masaka Municipality MP Mathias Mpuga of the DP are not apologetic for abandoning their political parties.

“The reason we have chosen People Power is to identify with Ugandans. My voters in Masaka fully support my decision,” he says.

He says the motivation to join the People Power group is a higher call of duty to defend the nation’s failing democracy.

Parties, he says, are dysfunctional and have failed to move the struggle forward. “Talking about my party DP in particular,” he adds, “it has become difficult for Mao to move the party forward. The environment in which the parties are supposed to function isn’t conducive and this has bred frustration.”

“Parties haven’t reached certain areas. DP hasn’t reached Karamoja for example; I haven’t heard DP in Mbale or in Paliisa. The DP message doesn’t resonate with the electorate because they don’t know it but they know People Power. We need to reach all these people without any limiting factors. I am therefore more preoccupied with change than with my party.”

Mpuuga says Ugandans are very frustrated and it became clear that there was a need for a platform that cuts across parties.

“Ugandans need a motivation beyond parties and it has always been the case. In 2001, DP, even though it was in abeyance due to the legal regime, supported Kizza Besigye, in 2006 , when DP had an official Presidential Candidate –Ssebaana Kizito, many of its members supported Besigye because he represented an opportunity for regime change. The desperation for change will always compel people to support individuals if they think the parties cannot do much.”

  5. Powerful Military_Dynasties are Not that easily “Driven Off/Away” especially by Cowards, Hypocrites, Mediocres seeking “the easy way Out”….
    A so_called “clean_Ballot” especially here in AFRICA is clearly…”the easy way Out” to attempt an “Open oriented Challenge” upon a Dynasty/Regime which came to Power through Great Sacrifice, “BLOOD”….Eliminating Wolves that had turned everyday citizens into Sheep to prey upon as they wanted; the “SheepDogs” ARRIVED to bring ORDER OUT OF CHAOS!!
    That ORDER exists…regardless of ALL the inefficiencies Many see as WEAKNESSES of the current regime…

    Most people are like sheep. Nice, harmless creatures who want nothing more than to be left alone so they can graze. But then of course there are wolves. Who want nothing more than to eat the sheep.

    But there’s a third kind of person. The sheepdog. Sheepdogs have fangs like wolves. But their instinct isn’t predation. It’s protection. All they want, what they live for, is to protect the flock.

  6. There is a big problem in Uganda, many people are change hungry but always their leaders betray them that’s why they now have much hope in the pop star who turned a politician, however there is something that needs to be done because Mr Museveni can’t organise a free and fair election.
    On the issue of MPs siding with Bobi, I trust Bobi’s intelligence that’s why he is putting these people in public very early such that he and the public keenly look at their actions before 2o21 and I believe before that year many of them will be eliminated
    FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY

  7. Am not seeing a way through to over power the ruling president but is it the way to go😴 .let any one who can prioritize the interest of being the challenger rise.because I hope bob wine has a bug of reasons why he must come like any other person who can stand. So people it’s higher time you stopped criticizing and blocking people’s Golden interests ,thank you..
