The vocal opposition law maker who intents to save Ugandans from a three year tenure by Yoweri useveni also shared pictures of police militia patrolling the area and protruding to his private premises.
According to Wine, the current Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni had sabotaged his political ambitions by deploying the security officers to silence him in fear of powerful influence.
Wine added that the President had also enrolled himself as a musician just to counter his political activities.
“Gen. Museveni, so afraid of a critical microphone is doing everything to silence it. He recently registered himself as a musician in another desperate attempt to counter us. Has been attending concerts of his praise singers. All we say, let there be fairness! This is our country, ” said Wine.
