Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has told the people of Bunyoro that the the journey to get rid of dictatorship in the country starts from their region by voting an opposition candidate in the forth coming by-election.
Kyagulanyi joined the campaign rally of the joint opposition candidate Asinansi Nyakato Kamanda who is running for Hoima district woman member of parliament.
He urged the people of Bunyoro to vote Nyakato not as a member of Forum for Democratic Change(FDC) but as a person who will represent the voice of people of Bunyoro.
“I ask you, don’t look at her as FDC. Don’t look at her as a youth but we should see her as the voice of Bunyoro,” he said.
He urged the people of Bunyoro to work as united front if they really want to see president Museveni out of power come 2021.
He implored the people of Bunyoro to reconnect with the spirit of resistance which live in their grandfathers and mothers noting that the great King of Bunyoro resisted colonial rule even to the point of his death.
He said that people of Bunyoro are facing different problems in their lives which need immediate remedies.
“People of Bunyoro are facing a lot of challenges ranging from massive land evictions, unemployment, oppressive taxes, a broken healthcare and education system among others,” he noted.
He said that he could see the zeal and will of the people of Bunyoro yearning to change their status quo and build a new Uganda based on social justice and equal opportunity.
The by-election will be held on 26th September.
Nyakato will run against with NRM’S Harriet Businge Mugenyi.
The seat fell vacant after Tophace Kaahwa Byagira, the former woman Member of Parliament opted to represent the newly created district Kikuube distrct carved out of Hoima.
