Senior presidential advisor on media Joseph Tamale Mirundi has said Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine is a strong force in Uganda’s politics than Dr. Kiiza Besigye.
Tamale made it clear that some government and military official are busy mooting to have Bobi Wine as president and First Son Muhoozi Kainerugaba as his vice president.
The former presidential revealed that this could be a hard move but might become unavoidable since government has lost most good people that could genuinely fight and defend it.
“That’s why they are now fighting the media for giving space to opposition figures to express their views against government, honestly what do you want journalists to do when government officials are too arrogant and don’t want to talk to them, I have seen them (government officials) they talk one or two words and tell journalists that its enough then jump into their tinted cars as if they are the editors.” Tamale said adding that having have the two (Bobi Wine and Muhoozi) in one government would create an avenue to avoid bloodshed during transition from president Museveni to the new generation.
Tamale also revealed that that’s the reason why former top officials like Minister of Ethics Miria Matembe and Amama Mbabazi are supporting Bobi Wine because they believe he can make a better president than Besigye.
“Some officials have accumulated too much during Museveni’s regime and are afraid to lose this when power goes to another person. Muhoozi would defend these people including his father as Bobi Wine fronts other strategies binding the opposition together for the transformation of this country.” Tamale added.
