Kawempe North member of parliament Hon. Hajji Latif Ssebagala has parted ways with his long time ally and former opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye over the famous people power pressure group Twebereremu slogan.
The slogan is being preached by Kyadondo East member of parliament Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine who have been spending sleepless knight sensitizing Ugandans to acquire National Identity Cards and actively participate in national issues like elections.
Hon Latif however, insists that slogan and the tribalism are not related in any single way.
“How can you tell us that Bobi Wine is preaching tribalism yet he is married to someone from a different tribe? Bobi Wine’s biggest music ally Nubian Li is not also not a Muganda but they have worked together for ages. I respect and treasure my Friend Dr. Kiiza Besigye for the evident efforts he has put towards the liberation struggle but I highly disagree with him on the Twebereremu slogan.” Latif said.
Bobi Wine had earlier urged Ugandans to stop being spectators and should start participating in national issues like elections if they want to get rid of president Museveni.
“You can’t say that president Museveni cheated votes yet you never voted, you can’t say his government is bad yet you refuse to acquire a national Identity Card that makes you a Ugandan. This is time to act, don’t expect us to make any progress when you are not involved in the struggle, be wise citizens, get you National ID, be a registered voter, #Twebereremu! Funa Ndaga Muntu!!” this is Bobi Wine’s message to the ghetto Youths.
While speaking to the Buganda region Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Leaders, Besigye cautioned leaders against engaging in campaigns and issues like #Twebereremu that may disunite the opposition.
