Trump sends strong warning to Museveni over Bobi Wine

By AP

United States President Donald Trump, has on Monday sent a message of warning to Ugandan authorities over the country’s handling of Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known by his stage name as Bobi Wine.

According to Trump, he has followed keenly the turn of events since the past few months between Bobi Wine, President Museveni and security forces.

“The United States and I expect that the rule of law governs and security agencies act professionally in their dealings with the young Ugandan lawmaker”, Trump said.

Trump added that, there is no room for abuse of human rights, freedom of speech and the United States will not tolerate any act hindering anyone from expressing his views or exercising his democratic rights.

Trump comments come after Bobi Wine was arrested on Monday by Ugandan security officers on his way to Busabala for a press conference where he was set to speak out on police brutality, injustice and abuse of authority.

    Museveni is too much a coward. He even doesnt deserve to be called his excellency.He was one day warned about Bobi wine,take Kyagulanyi Ssentamu,and he seemed to under rate him claiming he wasnt a threat to his regime but now its obvious he’s started figiting, trying to avoid him in any way possible but all to avail. Let’s wait for 2021, museveni has got to go!
