Bobi Wine has added yet another talking point as days draw closer to the long anticipated polling day. The "Dembe" singer has called upon Tubonge artists campaigning for the president to utilise the audience and tell the president issues affecting the common people. Talk about spitting in the hands that feeds you!
The singer elaborated his stand with the shocking statistics of maternal health in the country. He posted,"
In Uganda,282 children and 16 mothers DIE EVERY DAY due to avoidable birth-related causes. They died yesterday, they have or will be dead by the end of today and the same will happen tomorrow until there is a #CHANGE. It has been like that for the longest time.
To all my fellow artists doing campaigns,your voice is very strong in this nation and that's why you get paid by politicians to sing their praises,please use the same voices to create awareness about the plight of common Ugandans. No one is going to represent your people if you don't. You now have the leaders' audience, TELL THEM THE TRUTH!"
The singer is said to fighting battles with agents of the regime after he was handed a tax bill of UgX 54M by URA claiming his beach, One Love has not cleared. He denied the claims. Bobi also claims his song "Dembe" has been banned and radios are not playing it despite requests from listeners. The song called for violence free elections and power transition
