The Ghetto Gladiator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine Omubanda Wa Kabaka was yesterday in Luzira prison to visit the former FDC party presidential candidate of 2016 Dr. Kiiza Besigye who is in jail on treason charges.
Bobi Wine has this morning broken the silence and officially revealed what the two discussed for several hours.
Bobi says Besigye was happy to receive him and his team.
“He is healthy and strong and above all, very hopeful,” Bobi said.
The Ghetto president and the people’s president talked extensively about the state of affairs in the country.
“Once you decide to stand up and oppose an oppressive regime, you will always have two homes, your real home and prison,” Besigye told Bobi Wine.
He added, “but that should never break your spirit and quest for freedom and justice.”
Besigye also told the singer that at this particular time in history, it’s not a matter of what political party or affiliation one belongs to.
“We all have a collective responsibility to liberate our motherland. Parties can only exist in a free and fair atmosphere where everybody is equal under the law.”
Besigye reminded the youth that he was a young medical doctor in his twenties when he decided join the struggle to liberate Uganda in 1982.
“So it’s upon you the young people of this generation to get up and offer leadership. This is not a one man struggle that should start on the top downwards, but rather from the grassroots upwards.”
Besigye reminded Ugandans that it’s within their power to change things, urging them never to give up.
He wished all Muslim brothers and sisters a happy idd.
