  1. This is Bobi Wine’s bloody campaign. If his driver is not killed then it’s his bodyguard or supporter. These are his victims. He gives Lucifer their lives in order for him to retain his own and gain more power. His supporters and people around him ought to know that they’re merely his captives who can be sacrificed anytime. Even the journalists working for him are owned by him and could be sacrificed at any time. There is nothing he does that shows he’s willing to safeguard lives. He prefers dangerous confrontations and in that way, more lives are at his disposal for human and blood sacrifice. At every rally, someone must be injured or killed. Dr Kazimba rightly said that politicians are not worth dying for. Those who die for Bobi Wine open their eyes too late when they’re already in hell, their lives having been given to Satan.

  2. Victor thank you for comment while you criticized Robert Kyagulanyi for sacrificing some many of his supporters, you fall short of condemning his tormentors. Robert;s drive was short while sitting in a pick up which was not even moving his crime? being in a wrong place or being Kyagulanyi’s driver, the poor guy was just doing his job to earn a living, Ashriraf was shot in the head was it an accident ? why is government frustrating NUPs campaigns when NRM candidates do the same thing in Masaka, Hon minister for Microfinance went had a similar rally and police did arrest him. while Nup has failled to observe all SOPs but that is not a justification for shooting people, at least they should do the same on NRM rallies. what kind of government kills over 70 people of it citizens, and no one is brought to justice. we also supported museveni in Luwero and what do we have to show? nothing

  3. Those who think of these Lucifer and homosexual things on Mr president kyagulanyi are enemies of Ugandans and Uganda as a country. They enjoy seeing Ugandans suffer in all aspects. Check on the kidnapping,, killings,, land grabbing,, justice in judiciary department,, and blind fold in Media houses. So we here for the truth and we stand by it. Its time for change. # Uganda bleeding,, free Uganda. Freedom is all we need.
