Today on the 3rd March 2021 National Unity Platform (NUP) Presidential Candidate and leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine had a call with Venezuelan Opposition Candidate Juan Guaidó. Bobi Wine said they discussed “the way forward for both countries” and “defence of democratic principals”. This was a bad move for Kyagulanyi. He shouldn’t even have picked up this.
It made so much more sense when he congratulated Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) leader on his 40th Birthday, Julius Malema the other day. They are in the same league and has similarities. They have common objective and spirits. That is something that is easily to salute and true brotherhood, but calling Guaidó is a waste of time.
Guaidó is a man who enjoys support of Pentagon and the United States Government. He wanted to be used a puppet President in Venezuela. This after President Trump was able to get his will in Bolivia the year before. The Trump Administration through Pompeo and other allies boosted Guaidó. Guaidó even hired mercenaries in 2020 and tried to overthrow President Manduro.
This is why Bobi Wine shouldn’t have picked up the call. Then describing it like this and calling him the “President” too. A man who is willing to be puppet and a the living embodiment of Western Imperialism. A man who is willing to be used as a tool of Pentagon and the U.S. State Department to undermine an elected government in Venezuela. That is the tragedy here.
Bobi Wine and the NUP should have researched this. Because, is this isn’t it and he shouldn’t be associated with leaders like this. They are not revolutionary or freedom fighters. Guaidó isn’t removing dictators, but wanting to be an installed Pinochet or Mobutu. His democratic principals cannot be deeply rooted, as his willing to hire guns and try to topple the government. This done with coordination of the US. Guaidó was even present at the State of the Union in Washington D.C. January 2020 and his attempt was in March 2020. Therefore, the whole ordeal was arranged, but didn’t succeed.
That is why Bobi Wine should know better and should have had his ears to the ground. Guaidó isn’t a renegade or a man fighting for freedom. The Venezuelan counterpart would trade away resources for his elite to eat in luxurious restaurants and have mansions in Miami. He would licence mineral industry and oil industry to American companies, instead of having the profits serving the general public and the state. That is the sort of man Guaidó is and why he was fitting in the game-plan of Washington.
We know that Guaidó is the President of Narnia and until he comes out the closet we shouldn’t take him seriously on his return to the real world. That is why the likes Bobi Wine shouldn’t address him or even take him sincere. He should have known better, but clearly he thought this would give him political capital.
Well, someone got to tell him and explain him the history. Even read some articles on Greyzone or Orinoco Tribune to get a gist of Guaidó is and his history. That would have been wise, but he can bring it back by acting smart, and learn from this mistake. Time will tell, if he does that, but this wasn’t it.
Bobi Wine, please don’t do this sort of thing again. Do research and check the history of the gentlemen you associate with. You are better than this. Peace.
