National Unity Platform’s (NUP) leader Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has revealed why government and President Museveni are harassing Arts teachers. While appearing on NTV, Bobi Wine said that Museveni is afraid of Arts. This was in relation to the recent strike by arts teachers over poor pay.
Bobi Wine argued that Art subjects were able to produce the likes of him. Therefore government is afraid that more Bobi Wine’s might be produced and end up giving the leaders a hard time.
“Dictators all over the world Bank political education and arts because arts created people like me that are going to give them a headache, they would rather see the doctors confined in the hospitals,” Bobi Wine said.
The former presidential candidate also cautioned Ugandans not to trust Museveni. This is due to the fact that he never means what he says and never says what he means.
The singer turned politician also further addressed the leadership crisis in NUP. It should be recalled that last month some veteran politicians led by Moses Nkonge Kibalama opened up another branch of the party in Kabowa.
However Bobi Wine said that what matters to them is not the name of the party. It’s rather the people. Kyagulanyi said that they are in firm control of the party which is the politcal wing of People Power.
“For us its not just the name of the party (NUP), its tje people. In the end, we will be ‘People Power’ because ‘people power is our power’. NUP is the political wing of People Power and it’s a party that we are in firm control of.”
