KAMPALA – Presidential advisor on ghetto issues and musician Mark Bugembe better known by his stage name Buchaman has broken his silence on why he parted ways with his longtime boss and friend Bobi Wine.
It should be remembered that Buchaman was the Vice President of Bobi Wine in both the firebase crew and the Ghetto government deputizing him always.
According to Bugembe, one of the reasons he quit Firebase and stopped working with Bobi for good is because he showed interest in signing the gay bill.
The ‘Lwaki Temumatila’ singer vehemently believes that his former boss’s political aspirations are being funded by the LGBT community, something that is completely contrary to what they stood for when Firebase was starting.
He gave an example of how Bobi Wine change in looks is inspired by what he stands for currently, noting how he chopped off his dreadlocks because he is aware that Rastafarians are against homosexuality.
“I’ve often been asked why I separated myself from Bobi Wine. From the day the man went to sign the gay bill, I said, “No, I won’t sign a gay bill as a Rastafarai,” Buchaman noted.
He added that in the Rastafari norms, they do not accept homosexuality and he would stand his ground to see to it that the vice is fought and defeated completely.
“Our ancestors fought for this land, we are going to fight, and we must fight. We have laws and culture, our morals are very strong. I won’t support the gay community,” he strongly stated.
The singer made the revelation yesterday in a presser he held at his Makidye-based home accompanied by his wife Claire Nangajja a.k.a Mama Ghetto to launch their campaign dubbed “Uganda Is Not For Sale”.
In this campaign, the presidential advisor warns Ugandans against selling off their local culture, nature and traditions in wanting to adopt foreign behaviours.
The presser brought together ghetto youths from the different slums around the country who held placards with wordings and bible verses preaching against homosexuality and calling upon repentance.
Noting that his campaign has nothing to do with his boss President Museveni, the Ghetto envoy urged Ugandans to preserve and protect their norms so as not to turn into another Sodom and Gomorrah.
The National Resistance Movement diehard further called upon influential Jamaican figures and followers of Emperor Haile Selassie to unite and fight for the preservation of the unique African values that existed before.
