Hon Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the member of Parliament for Kyadondo East has this morning rushed to Facebook to cry out for help as his life is in danger. The singer cum politician revealed that grenades, for the second time, have been thrown at his house.
He said; “GRENADES have for the second time in two days been thrown at my house and exploded. Property damaged and no one hurt! But what kind of country are we now living in?
I had decided to ignore the blasts and these threats, but it seems they are now getting real.”
The ‘Situka’ singer went ahead to reavel that he has been receiving phone calls from unknown persons threatening to eliminate him and his family.
“Let me announce to the whole world that these past days I have been receiving death threats on an almost daily basis. I have also been advised by some friends who know more than I know that I should be very careful what I eat or drink, how I drive and from where, whom I meet, even who touches me while I go to Parliament. Apparently something could be done to me during the kind of scuffle that happened when state agents invaded the Parliamentary chamber!
Reason? Opposing the removal of age limits in the Constitution! Anonymous calls targeting not only me but my family as well. I have been told that ‘if I don’t leave that thing a lone, I will just be terminated or disabled,” Bobi Wine revealed.
He further on said that these are cowardly acts which must be condemned by all people of good conscience. “We are not involved in war. We are just citizens who are interested in a good country for ourselves and the generations to come. WE SHALL NOT BE INTIMIDATED. Let them know that NOTHING can stop an idea whose time has come. If you kill one me, perhaps a thousand more will rise up. The world is watching,” he concluded.
It should be noted that Bobi Wine was denied access to any radio station as UCC directed all talk show hosts in the country not to host the Kyadondo East parliamentarian and 23 others- who were suspended from parliament following a scuffle.
