Opinion: Willy comes from the woodworks to save Bobi Wine’s Petition

Now the long-gone Presidential Elections Petition of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine seems to be fetched by former Presidential Candidate Eng. Willy Maymbala. Mr. Mayambala suddenly comes out of nowhere to be the saviour of the day or the useful idiot depending on how you look at it.

Since, the Supreme Court Petition is useless neither way. The Courts will only validate the election and move on. It is all compromised and will not serve in favour of any opposition candidate. A person like Willy is only a pawn in a game chess. This will not change anything.

What is even more striking, is that NBS Television reported this on the man only two or three weeks ago:

“When asked about his financial status post-election on The Morning Breeze show, Mayambala said the elections left him poorer, jobless and down to earth. This is the situation for most politicians after elections, fr those who have lost, it is a double tragedy because they have to deal with the heavy debts without a source of income and for those who win, they have to clear their debts and deal with the pledges they made. It is a catch 22” (Freda Ajok – ‘Former Presidential Candidate Willy Mayambala Broke and Jobless After Elections’ 08.02.2021, NBS Television).

So, a man that is broke and jobless seeks relevance and a paycheck to revive a dying petition. This is clearly an attempt to stay relevant and have some sort of play in the public regard. Willy needs to be seen and get traction. He needs that to stay relevant and have any points of getting validated somewhere. Willy already ran a terrible campaign as an independent and didn’t get anything worth mentioning from election. The only thing he got was debt to deal with. That is surely not the detail he signed up for.

Clearly he does this to get a some traction, but how can a broke man be able to carry the expenses of a court case? How could he even have the funds to campaign and be a Presidential Candidate, when he has nothing when its ended? It is not like he was in the public ahead of the elections and neither been so after it all.

No, this is a publicity stunt and he maybe hopes the State House can bail him out. He has already stated his poverty earlier in the month. A jobless man with no money can clearly not carry a petition like this. Who will be his lawyers and be his attorneys in this case? Who will do that Pro-bono? Aye?

Free Willy, he needs redemption and that quickly. This is not cutting it. It is not funny. Just to breathe life into a dying horse. To validate the election and give Museveni the recognition he needs. So, that he can get the foreign donors of his back. As every “avenue” has been exhausted. Peace.
