Presidential advisor on media issues as well as permanent panelist on Tuesday talk show on NBS TV, Tamale Mirundi claims that Forum for Democratic Change (FDC)party strongman, Dr Kizza Besigye has burnt out.
Mirundi was commenting on the political affairs of the country during his talk show on. He specifically spent most of his commentary on the new coalition by the Democratic Party (DP), Social Democratic Party (SDP), People’s Development Party (PdP) and the Truth for Justice (TJ).
During the signing of the Memorandum between DP and the cocktail of parties, Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine took the highlight when he lambasted Dr Besigye for being a political chronic failure.
Now Tamale Mirundi reiterates that indeed, Besigye’s time in the political light of this country has long since dwindled and he is ‘politically dead’
Besigye is politically dead that is why all the concentration is on Bobi Wine. This is because he is more dangerous than Besigye can be at the moment,” he said.
When asked to expound on his statement alleging Bobi Wine being dangerous, Tamale claimed that if Bobi Wine was not as dangerous then he would be allowed freedom o hold his concerts in the country.
“A prisoner who is not dangerous can’t be taken to maximum prison. Even if you lock Bobi Wine in a house during campaigns, he will raise 35 per cent of the vote. This is because government has had a poor approach towards the youth,” he said.
However, citing Bobi’s behaviour at the DP coalition, Tamale advised the singer will be slowly shape his own downfall due to his terrible decision making.
Bobi Wine does not need Mao and DP, being with them is the same as collecting all their bad luck that has failed them to win over Museveni in ages. Certain things are incompatible, Bobi Wine and DP are such,” he said.
According to Mirundi, the Democratic Party wants to use Bobi Wine as an endorser just like Nasser Ntege Ssebaggala was to FDC’s Besigye.
He equated Bobi Wine’s relationship with DP as that of a person who when a boat capsizes, would swim towards a crocodile assuming it has come to rescue them.
“If you are moving on water and your canoe capsizes, when u see a crocodile, do you swim towards it believing it has come on a rescue mission?”
“Bobi Wine needs to know if he is swimming towards a rock or a big hippo. And in my view, he is going to capsized by the hippo.”
