Museveni says Bobi Wine is an enemy of Uganda: Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni has called his leading critic, musician-turned-politician, Bobi Wine, as an “enemy of the country’s prosperity”, in an interview with the BBC.
The 36-year-old, affectionately known as the “ghetto president” has been a thorn in the side of Mr Museveni since his election as MP in 2017.
Bobi Wine, whose real name is Robert Kyagulanyi, recently declared that he would challenge Mr Museveni, 75, for the presidency in the 2021 election.
He is the leader of The People Power movement which accuses the president of overseeing a system of oppression during his 33 years in power.
Mr Museveni rejected the accusation telling the BBC’s Alan Kasujja that his government is not repressive, but dealing with Bobi Wine as an enemy.
President Museveni said he still has unfinished business in Uganda as president and will only leave if asked to do so by his National Resistance Movement (NRM) party.
