National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has urged Ugandans to vote for him in a new song ‘Tulonde’ ahead of the highly contested January 14th 2021 Elections.
In the song, Kyagulanyi who is also known as Bobi Wine, says that it can only be through voting that President Museveni’s 35-year-old government will come to an end.
Kyagulanyi in one verse of the song says his journey from Nomination has been filled with bullets and teargas, all masterminded by the SFC.
“Since November last year, they have been hunting us. The SFC attacked us right after nomination and our journey has since then been dominated by bullets and teargas. Many comrades are dead, Nubian Li and others are in jail and to finish this, you have to vote.”
In another verse, Kyagulanyi notes that if everyone who registered to vote goes ahead and participates in the voting process on January 14th, 2021, the current government cannot survive because Ugandans are also fade up of Museveni regime and have expressed this before.
In another verse, he tells Ugandans that the umbrella which is the official symbol of his Political Party, NUP, will always stand with them at all times.
“If it shines, the umbrella is available. If it rains, the umbrella will still be available, vote for the umbrella,”
While explain the reasons for releasing the song at this moment, Kyagulanyi said that the song was a dedication to the detained members of his campaign team, including singing partner Bukenya Ali alias Nubian Li and Eddie Sebuufu also known as Eddie Mutwe.
“This one is dedicated to brother Nubian Li and all the comrades that are in prison for no reason. We were blocked from campaigning but the music will now do the talking. This one is called #Tulonde and it serves as a reminder to all the voters in the remaining five days.”
Since announcing his bid to contest against incumbent President Museveni in 2018, Kyagulanyi has always been vocal in encouraging Ugandans to register for national identity cards so that they can participate in the 2021 general election.
Tulonde is just another political song that comes after the singer cum politician’s #SitukaTutambule.
Robert Kyagulanyi’s campaigns have been characterized by brutal arrests and killings as witnessed in recent weeks, including his detentions that sparked off nationwide protests.
