Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has said it is an uphill task riddled with fear opposing President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
Bobi said he sometimes regrets that his family and relatives could be harmed by the regime.
But Museveni and other NRM honchos have consistently articulated that their governemnt doesn’t eliminate its opponents citing Col Kizza Besigye – the main state rival as an example of those who are still challenging the regime and is still living.
The self proclaimed ghetto gladiator was speaking on a local radio in an interview about his political journey he has walked since assuming office in July.
Bobi Wine said he almost gave up the fight of removal of age limit the day grenades exploded at his residence and shattered windows on his son’s bedroom.
“I imagined if that grenade harmed my son Kampala. I would be solely responsible,” he said.
But the dancehall singer said his courage hinges on the determinations Museveni and his ilk displayed in 1980 to take on Milton Obote’s governemnt and finally took power in 1986.
“For the last 31 years we have similarly been living in hell. If we fear death then what kind of a country will our sons find?” Bobi Wine said.
Adding that if he dies fighting for good governance he would surely rest in peace.
Asked if he had a one on one with the President, Bobi Wine said he would laud his achievements but ask him to retire peacefully not in pieces.
He warned that the struggle continues and won’t tire until he achieves what he is fighting for.
He told Ugandans that his job is to prepare them mentally so that they courageously rise and oppose the regime.
