Singer Bobi Wine has lost his temper and described Ugandan peace that is given at gunpoint is actually “piss”.
Bobi was angered by the arrest and detention of opposition leader, Kizza Besigye.
“When the going gets tough, the tough must get going, especially when our #Leaders have become #Misleaders and #Mentors have become #Tormentors. When freedom of expression is met with suppression and oppression, then #Opposition becomes #OurPosition,” Bobi wrote on his Facebook wall.
“As we preach peace, we must not shut our eyes and mouths to injustice or we shall be known by our children as the generation of hypocrites. Peace at gun point is actually piss.”
The singer clarified that he was not inciting violence but just concerned about the freedom in the country.
In an earlier post, Bobi said the youth are the nation!
“If we are 75% of 41.8 million, then we are approximately 31.5 million youthful Ugandans. THE FUTURE OF UGANDA DEPENDS ON US AND THE CHOICES WE MAKE. If it’s for us, then it must be by us. We are in a very decisive time in our lives and in the lives of our children and our children’s children. We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools. This is #HistoryInTheMaking.”
Bobi was especially angered by Ugandan “misleaders” and “tormentors” who turned into hypocrites.
“I am wondering; how can I stand up for justice without inciting violence, how can I preach peace without sounding hypocritical??”
“Its a fact that people have frustration over elections but as we continue to discourage any kind of violence from the public. It should be noted that police brutality is not a better evil.”
