Opposition party National Unity Platform leader, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has come out and pleaded to the United States od America to stop funding the government of Uganda.
He made this statement while appearing in an interview with American cable news network, CNN.
The former legislator is in the US for official party duties. He took off some time to air out his grievances on the big screen.
He was questioned about the incidents that happened prior to and after the January 14th general election.
Kyagulanyi said that just like all the other elections organised by the regime every after 5 years, the recent one too was characterised by massive fraud.
He asserted that he had won the election with a percentage of over 85%.
This is because according to him, majority of Ugandans are below the age of 35 years and they voted for him.
He said the switching of the internet and his house arrest just after he had voted said a lot about the election.
Bobi Wine said the US should stop funding what he termed as dictatorial governments in Africa.
“I request the government of India States of America to stop funding the dictatorial governments in Africa like Uganda. It’s so contradictory that US which condemns abuse if democracy continue funding these regimes.” Bobi Wine said.
The youthful politician asserted that the US could further it’s interests too through democratic leaders.
He added that Africans were hopeful that one day dictatorship will be a thing of the past in the Continent.
Bobi Wine also said that Africa should be at the same level of human rights as the Western countries that fund these government
