The National Unity Platform party supremo Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert alias Bobi Wine has heaped praises on veteran four time presidential candidate Rtd. Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye.
In a tweet authored a couple of hours back, Bobi paid tribute to Dr. Besigye who has for the past two decades challenged the dictatorship of Gen. Yoweri Museveni.
The tribute comes barely days after Bobi paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Besigye who had just returned from a medical trip to Geneva.
“Dear Dr KB, for the sacrifice you have offered to our country, for the inspiration and mentorship you have given to our generation, for the consistency of your words and actions, we are forever indebted to you,” Bobi wrote.
Bobi and Besigye shared a lot of profound memories after the popstar defied all odds in the 2016 general elections where Museveni recruited all the country’s top artistes to sing for him under the ‘Tubonga Naawe’ project.
Wine, rejected the millions of shillings that were brought to his table to entice him to be part of the Tubonga Naawe project.
Bobi instead chose to single handedly side with Besigye and in some occasions he would flank the Forum for Democratic Change party presidential campaign rallies.
