THIS WEEK: Bobi Wine to youths: Get national ID and vote
Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | During his hugely attended Kyarenga Concert at his One Love Beach in Busabala, in the city outskirts, singer and politician Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine urged youth to get national IDs and vote.
Wine said that the only way young people can stop being spectators in the electoral process is by voting. “Get a national ID. We are only left with two years and we shall show them what we are capable of come 2021.
Whatever we do minus getting an ID does not count,” he told cheering fans. The Kyarenga concert was long awaited after police thwarted it on two occasions when Namboole stadium was set to host it. There were mammoth crowds draped in red, which is the colour of Bobi’s People Power movement.
The singer rapped the government on the deteriorating education and health services. MPs Paul Mwiru, Francis Zaake, Asuman Basalirwa, Joseph Sewungu and Mukasa Mbidde were present.
