WAKISO – People Power movement has launched a young wing dubbed ‘Students Power’ in a bid to galvanise the pressure group’s support ahead of 2021 elections.
During the launch at the home of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine in Magere, Kasangati Town Council, Wakiso District on Tuesday, November 05, 2019, People Power students’ representatives were also unveiled.
Mr Joel Ssenyonyi, the People Power spokesperson, hailed the students for standing up to government for their rights and urged them to desist from all forms of violence.
The student’s movement has been tasked to preach the gospel of liberation. The student’s movement consists of students from various universities across the country.
“We are saying we are not going to sit back and see these institutions go down. Holding a placard is not violence, it is you Museveni who went to the bush and killed people. That is what we call violence,” Mr Ssenyonyi said on Tuesday.
He also told the students that People Power has no money at the moment but when they take over government in 2021, they will consider buying Land Cruiser V8 cars for them.
“Calling me boss implies that you expect me to pay you salary, Senyonyi told Tundulu the MC who introduced him as boss before adding that “We will buy for you the mpa enkonis of Kusasiras and the likes when we take over power. That is when we will afford to pay you,” Ssenyonyi promised.
In attendance was Tundulu Jonathan, the Kyambogo University guild president, chairman Nyanzi (Bobi Wine’s brother), Bobi Wine, Roy Ssemboga among other top People Power diehards.
