Through several posts on his Twitter handle and press releases, Bobi Wine noted that Kenya’s presidential election in 2022 will be the most “significant” political event in East Africa, and likely to shape the future of millions of people in the region
Uganda’s most serious challenger to President Yoweri Museveni’s 36 reigns in power, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has some free advice for Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto.
Wine is urging Ruto to stop visiting “dictator” Museveni if he is intent on becoming Kenya’s president in 2022. Mr Wine was referring to the recent storm over Ruto’s cancelled trip to Kampala for a private business meeting.
Through several posts on his Twitter handle and press releases, he noted that Kenya’s presidential election in 2022 will be the most “significant” political event in East Africa, and likely to shape the future of millions of people in the region.
Bobi Wine said Museveni was now a “political liability” to the landlocked country that has not seen a peaceful transfer of power since independence in 1962
Wine said most Ugandans would be following events in Nairobi closely as Kenya is Uganda’s largest trading partner and gateway for imports and exports. Wine told DP Ruto to stop “cuddling” the “dictator” in Kampala who has refused to heed to the popular will of majority Ugandans anxious for political change and peaceful transfer of power.
Wine told Ruto by continually visiting Museveni, he was lending his “dictatorship” the political credibility he doesn’t deserve. Wine said Museveni staged a “vote coup” in the last presidential poll.
While wishing Kenyans well, he said Uganda needed prayers to overcome the Museveni regime. He said Uganda’s ruler of three decades was “hopelessly drunk” with power and suffering from what German political sociologist Robert Michels termed as the “messianic syndrome of political indispensability”!
Museveni, he said, now assumes “Uganda can’t survive without him” despite having long reached his “expiry date,” Wine said Museveni was now a “political liability” to the landlocked country that has not seen a peaceful transfer of power since independence in 1962.
The youthful populist reggae musician turned presidential contender claimed the Museveni era had reached a “dead end.” True to what Kenya’s political scientist Professor Ali Mazrui termed as “diminishing political returns”-unable to go forward but perpetually in “reverse “motion.
