You can take a man from the ghetto but the ghetto will never leave them! We have seen the same phenomena in The US where a ghetto fellow who happened to be very rich and managed to etched his way to the statehouse and now what we have a is a state house full of the ghetto stench. Do we want the same for Uganda?
Bobbi Wine is not the first Musician to send political messages through his song, most musicians in the north have been doing that close to a decade, its only that the words may not be understood across Karuma but all along northerners have been dancing to tunes echoing imbecility, ghettoism and corruption in the leadership in Kampala.
I agree with Abbey Semuwemba that Bobi has appeal and youthfulness is on his side and also that he has ambition but that is about all he can deliver. However, Uganda as nation in a modern world, needs more than that and i don’t think Bobi Wine has the mojo, the capacity to deliver that. Albeit, where we are, anything can do at moment!. Any form of transition at this point in time, is better than no transition at all, especially if it inching towards federalism and so i will accept and support Bobi’s ambition. It has to said that, Bobi’s ascendancy will very much depend on the support from the central. As longer Musevenis bread is still being buttered by the untiring hands in the Central, Bobi Wine should content with the wine in his cellar!
