These are heady days for Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

The musician cum social activist made his intentions to stand as Member of Parliament for Kyadondo East last week, an utterance that saw him delve deeper, go further, be more open than ever before.

To say it has resonated is a slight under-statement. Lauded by political critics – Bobi has been so close to US Ambassador Deborah Malac and attending the attention grabbing treason hearings of President Museveni’s four time challenger Dr Kizza Besigye.
