KAMPALA – Bobi Wine’s political popularity could have opened huge doors for his entire family to join politics. Singer Michael Mukwaya alias Mickie wine has revealed that he is going to join politics, particularly to replace his brother as he intends to take on presidential seat.
In an interview on CNN, Bobi Wine stated that he is considering challenging Museveni’s three-decade reign in State House.
During the interview, Bobi Wine was asked if he will contest against President Museveni to which he replied in affirmative.
“Well this question has come up several times and indeed many people have come to me calling me to stand for presidency against Museveni. We have been discussing this issue with my team and I must say I and my team are seriously considering challenging President Museveni in the next presidential election,” Bobi Wine said.
Bobi Wine’s declaration to unseat president Museveni might have attracted his young brother Mickie wine to eye for his seat in the parliament.
According to Mikie Wine, Uganda desperately needs young and committed leaders not the elderly that have worked restlessly to enrich themselves.
“I have been a leader all along, I was a prefect in my school days so this is not new and it won’t be new. You can’t fight change; I want to move on with change. I like being a leader so I inspire and guide my people.”
He says for long government has not included the Ghetto people in matters of national governance therefore it’s high time the unprivileged Ugandans rose up for their rights.
Mikie Wine is not the only one, Eddie Yawe, an elder brother to Bobi Wine has tried to get into parliament but Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda has stood in his way all the time.
Another sibling of theirs, Fred Nyanzi alias Chairman Nyanzi is also reportedly considering a shot at parliament
