Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has taken on President Museveni asking him how he feels when people are being battered and killed by security agencies.
The legislator asked during a media briefing held at his home in Magere, in Kasangati Town Council where he said many people have breathed their last after being beaten and roughed up by security agencies.
Bobi Wine has clashed often times with police and army during the processions of opposition leaders.
“I expected the president to call on the errant soldiers to order, however, I was disappointed when President Museveni decided to pat them on the back for a job well done,”
“Mr President, just like there was a time when you were not in power, there will be a time when you will not be in power so treat people the way you would want to be treated, It is not too late to regain and save your legacy so please do what is right, ” he said.
He stressed that as a fountain of honor has always referred to them as his grandsons and daughters, he acts contrary to the norm by subjecting them to torture, arrests.
Grandparents are known to treat their grandchildren with love and care and so grandparents shouldn’t brutalize their grandchildren every time they have a different opinion,” he added.
Bobi Wine who reminded security operatives of brutalizing Ugandans said, they are not fighting against them rather fighting for them too. He encouraged them to join the campaign saying People Power is not about Bobi Wine or anybody. It is an idea premised on the fact that power belongs to the people.
He said as Ugandans, they are going through a tough time, “We must stand together to end the disturbing videos of security operatives brutalizing people they are supposed to protect.”
