- Wine says Museveni is surrounded by people he termed as hypocrites
- The people misguide Museveni by showering him with empty praises
- He has pressed upon the Head of State to be true to Ugandan citizens
- The MP says he is ready to walk the painful path just to save his people
Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulani alias Bobi Wine, on Wednesday, October 10, termed President Yoweri Museveni a worse dictator that his predecessor Idi Amin.
Wine further labelled the Uganda Head of State as one leader who was drunk with power adding those surrounding him were short sighted.
The celebrity musician come MP made the remark during a live interview on Citizen TV where claimed Museveni's animosity toppled that of Amin
TUKO.co.ke understands Amin was a fierce Ugandan President and was accused of persecuting and killing hundreds of citizens between 1971 -1979.
During his tenure, Museveni and his family took asylum in Nairobi, Kenya as a result of Museveni's opposition to Amin's rule.
Wine informed Citizen TV's Jeff Koinange that, governance and democracy in Uganda was on its knees.
President Museveni, he said, had staffed his relatives and tribesmen in public systems, people whom he claimed had no capacity to guide the president but only showed him with false praises.
The legislator asked Museveni to be true to Ugandans but was also emphatic that his leadership will at one time come to an end.
Wine, however, noted that those who made similar utterances found themselves on a collision course with Ugandan authorities.
He exuded preparedness to face the consequences stating it was only through sacrifice that Ugandan citizens will regain their freedom which he said had been trumpled upon.
On Monday, August 13, the vocal politician was arrested and detained after claims that he marshaled an attack on Museveni's motorcade.
Wines claimed to have been tortured by security officers allegations Uganda government has several disputed.
The MP was subsequently charged in court where a count of treason was leveled against him.
In September he travelled to USA where he received medical attention following claims of painful torture by Uganda police.
