As his former boss Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine was swearing in as a Member of Parliament, singer Mark Bugembe aka Buchaman was also ‘swearing in’ as the new the ‘Ghetto President’.
At the event which took place in Nakulabye just next to Chez Jonhson Hotel, Buchaman, accompanied by about nine dreadlocked men took to the stage holding what their ‘boss’ called the ‘new Ghetto bible’.
With the aid of a sound system that was in place, he received the microphone and took a vow not to betray the Ghetto people like his former boss.
He accused Bobi Wine of having betrayed his ghetto people and joined what he called the ‘Babylon system’. Buchaman was later joined by some other people who pledged allegiance to him and he took them through a prayer before winding up the ceremony with a performance.
Buchaman is the longest-serving ‘Vice President of Fire Base/Ghetto Republic’. He however, fell out with Bobi Wine in 2012 and the two dont see eye to eye ever since.
Not surprisingly, Buchaman even supported Bobi Wine’s rival, Apollo Kantinti in the just concluded elections, where Bobi wine was elected MP for Kyadondo East.
