Bobi Wine has come out to reveal the reason behind his absence at the Kabaka Run 2019 after being criticised for missing.
Photos of opposition’s Kiiza Besigye were spreading all over social media with questions on why Bobi Wine never attended. Bobi Wine has posted the information below to give a full account of his day today.
Earlier today, I presided over a football match involving an Afro-German football club. I expressed gratitude to the club leadership for engaging and uplifting the talent of African youth who come here looking for opportunities. I also met with and had a chat with Ugandans living here. Their resolve to change things back home is so great.
I was also privileged to spend some time at the Berlin wall, which was brought down by the power of the people when they spoke with one voice. The Berlin wall was indeed physical, but seeing it today caused me to reflect on the economic, social and political walls that exist in our country, separating those who have and those who don’t have; and indeed those few who are in power and the vast majority of the poor common people who have been dis-empowered. Seeing that the common people here spoke with one voice until the Berlin wall fell is testament that we can and we shall bring down those walls which oppress us.
Tomorrow, I will be speaking at a Strategy Conference organised by IFEX, bringing together leaders and activists for democracy and the freedom of expression from the world. Catch us live, let’s have a conversation and let’s build synergies with our comrades from the world.
