|Bobi Wine runs with supporters on campaign rally|
Ugandan Presidential hopeful Bobi Wine on Saturday reminded his supporters in Teso that his name is Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu and not Bobi Wine.
The 36 year old former pop-star is set to battle with Uganda’s longest serving president Yoweri Museveni in the January 2021 election.
Bobi wine however was formerly known for his musical name, so he is using this campaign period to educate his supporters and possible voters that his real name is Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu.
Wine is facing the most difficult time, as he is the biggest opposition against a dictator, and has proved that has majority support during his first week of campaigning.
His movements are intercepted by police in almost every town, supporters are teargassed , and dispersed and at some points denied to attend the campaign venues or even accessing local media to address people.
But, the state actions seem to be gaining him more support as people continue sympathizing with him.
