Ugandan opposition leader Bobi Wine to grace MDC Congress
UGANDA’s popular member of parliament for Kyadondo East, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, is set to grace the MDC’s 5th Congress which has kicked off in Gweru Friday.
Wine, who is endlessly at loggerheads with the government of Uganda’s longtime ruler Yoweri Museveni, is coming in as a special guest and friend of the Zimbabwean opposition.
Wine has declared his intention to contest for the Ugandan presidency in the 2021 general election, challenging 74-years old Yoweri Museveni who has been President of Uganda since 1986.
His coming in to Zimbabwe was revealed by MDC leader Nelson Chamisa on Friday afternoon.
“Gweru is lit and painted MDC red…the colour of love, freedom and people power. I love the mood and atmosphere.
“Democracy never fails. Expecting a revolutionary @HEBobiwine of Uganda as one of the special guests from the African continent,” an elated Chamisa revealed.
Bobi Wine, who was born Robert Kyagulanyi in 1982, has been persecuted and imprisoned by the country’s dictator, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni countless times. — ZOOMZimbabwe
