KAMPALA – Kyadondo East MP and presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine, has said no amount of intimidation will stop him from challenging what he described as the dictatorial regime of President Museveni.
Addressing supporters at his home in Magere, Kasangati in Wakiso District where he was dumped by police after his nomination, Bobi Wine said that he was sprayed with pepper in his eyes that almost made him blind while his fingers were also squeezed with pincers while in the police car.
Bobi Wine, who also appeared with a torn suit and shirt, said much as Museveni’s government has intimidated him through raids on the People Power and NUP offices and the saga over the ownership of NUP, his spirit is as strong as ever and that he is not about to give up.
Franked by NUP leaders Joel Ssenyonyi (spokesman) and David Lewis Rubongoya (Secretary General), among others, Bobi Wine said his supporters who were standing by the roadsides in different places of Kampala to cheer him on his way to nomination were brutalised by police and the army, wondering why Museveni’s supporters were not stopped on Monday.
He added that such actions energise him because he represents interests of the majority in the country who are oppressed.
