When in doubt… shed light on the matter, add some context and use your microphone to the wind. So, that no one can judge or misunderstand where you come from. Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine did that today. With his press conference and his statement.
Bobi Wine knows symbolism and knows the hardships of his predecessors. That he proved today with where he came from. He didn’t act out of character, but instead showed both humility and savvy political game. That is the sort of game, that even the worst propaganda spinners cannot create a crisis out of. Because there is none.
The People Power leader and Presidential Contender is proving his worth. His party is mobilizing new offices across the Republic. New candidates are being promoted and grassroot actions are done as well. Even as there are rumours of splitting factions and that the newly minted DP MPs are even bailing out. If they do, then they are meal-card politicians who are only in it for a secure seat and not for any pragmatic reasons. Since, it was so easy to jump and so frictionlessly to do it again.
Alas, Bobi Wine still in the midst of that. Shows courage and attitude. That he will not be defeated and not be mocked by a lawyer or anyone else. They are trying to sow doubt and look like a fool. Like a trickster and forgery. So, that he has to drop out, because his credentials are fake and his background is shady.
That is why the truest NRM mobilizers on Social Media just call him the “Weedman”, because of his roots and what he did in his youth. Not like anyone has taken to many drinks, hooked up on random and not searched where they shouldn’t search. A true human being do by default and do mistakes. A true man and woman do act to nature and have regrets too. That is part of life.
Bobi Wine sure has his regrets, has his mistakes and his misfortune. Who hasn’t?
That’s why these attacks and these arranged plots to sow doubt was so clear as day. They are just trying to undermine him. Because, Bobi Wine is the front-runner of the opposition. The one aspiring and the one who has to carry the struggle. His the man who are trying yet again to topple a President with peaceful means.
Bobi Wine should know that everything he has done. All the stories, all his businesses and records. Every single piece of life will be put to the test. Not just his birthday, his education, love-life and whatnot. All will be scanned to public to see. If he was a star and celebrity before. Now, as the main contender against the President for Life.
He must stand tall like today… take all the blame and the hurt. Show humility and be brave. He got too. If he wants this mantle and this title. He needs too do this. There is no other way out. The man has to go through wind and fire. There will be storms, hurricanes and hell-fire. He will be dancing with the devil and trying to rock the crowds with the choirs of saints in heaven. There will be a little of everything.
Bobi Wine will not rest. He cannot rest. There will be nothing of the sorts. All tests, inquires and stories will be ballooned into the stratosphere. There will be no safe journey and “go-to-gate”. No, only a one way ticket to the unknown.
This was a personal test for Bobi Wine and he took it. He carried it and made people proud. Peace.
