LIVE: Bobi Wine swearing in

“I have always said that if Parliament doesn’t come to the ‘Ghetto’, the ‘Ghetto’ will come to Parliament,” said Musician Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine moments before he was sworn in Tuesday as a 10th Parliament MP.

The 35-year-old music superstar last month won a landslide victory in the Kyadondo East by-election to become the country’s newest lawmaker.

Wine is a spectacularly popular Ugandan entertainer. For many, he embodies the struggles, frustrations and hopes of the young, poor and marginalised in a youthful nation whose often elderly rulers can seem dismissive of their plight.

His election marks a remarkable personal journey for the charismatic reggae star from brash, dreadlock-wearing, slum-dwelling youth to a sharp-suited and savvy political operator.
