Celebrated Kyadondo East legislator Bobi Wine alias Robert Kyagulanyi has lashed out at president Museveni for calling him an enemy of his own country, saying that the president is Uganda’s ‘chief priest’ in corruption.
Bobi Wine was on Saturday 19 responding to the president who accuses him (Bobi Wine) of discouraging American investors from coming to Uganda.
In an interview with BBC Africa, President Museveni lashed out at the youthful MP describing him as an enemy of progress ‘because’ he told Americans not to invest in Uganda.
“Bobi Wine went to America and said that people shouldn’t come and invest in Uganda; that is what he said, that means he is an enemy of progress in Uganda. I was in the opposition myself in the 1960s, I was in Democratic Party but when I was in DP, I couldn’t say don’t build Kabale-Masaka road because I am not in government.”
In response, the country’s most influential MP has said that the president himself is the only enemy to Uganda, accusing him of among several crimes, killing innocent citizens.
“The real enemy to Uganda’s progress are the sickening levels of corruption for which President Museveni is a chief priest,” said the angry legislator in a statement.
He added that “The real enemy to Uganda’s progress are the murders of our people at the hands of the state- Kasese being only an example.”
