Firebrand Ugandan pop-star musician cum-Opposition politician Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has yet again slammed President Yoweri Museveni’s administration on what he termed as rampant killing of innocent Ugandans.
Bobi Wine who is seeking to challenge Mr Museveni in the February 2021 presidential elections took to his Twitter account on Monday morning where he alleged that the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) regime had killed many people under the pretext of enforcing Covid-19 restrictions.
“In Uganda, the state has killed so many people in the name of enforcing Covid-19 related restrictions! The latest victim according to eyewitnesses was a 3rd year student of Makerere, Emmanuel Tegu killed by lDU. We the people can and must stop this naked brutality,” Bobi Wine tweeted.
