Senior UPDF officer Capt. Sula Sserunjogi who is also one of the National Resistance Army heroes has said Kyadondo East Legislator and singer, Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine can never be Commander in chief of the armed forces in Uganda.
A few days ago, the Electoral Commission led by Justice Byabakama approved Hon. Kyagulanyi to consult Ugandans on his Presidential bid ahead of 2021 where will be challenging President Museveni.
Addressing a congregation at Butologo hill on Wednesday during the fifth day of the NRA great trek code-named Africa Kwetu, Captain Sula Sserunjogi said he cannot think of life with the legislator and singer as the commander in chief of the UPDF.
“There are those coming with their trousers. You the youths should know that the president is the commander in chief of the army. You expect Bobi Wine to be our commander in chief? ”Capt. Sserunjogi wondered.
“It is unimaginable seeing Bobi Wine sit in the office that he (Museveni) is occupying. It is true this country has democracy but we can’t allow such a thing to happen (Bobi Wine being commander in chief).”
For the last two years, Bobi Wine has been credited by many for using music as a tool to front his agenda through the numerous songs he has released during this period and some Political analysts think he is the greatest Political surprise that ever happened in the history of Uganda.
However, Capt. Sserunjogi dismissed the narrative saying that for many years, music has been used to disorganize the country’s politics citing songs that were used to create hatred between Ben Kiwanuka and Apollo Milton Obote.
“The destruction of the country’s politics stemmed from Ugandans who released stupid songs,” he added, citing songs creating hatred between Ben Kiwanuka and Apollo Milton Obote as examples of music that damaged the country’s politics.
The bush war hero who once served as Resident District Commissioner for over 20 years said there were so many atrocities committed by the past governments, noting that the five year NRA war saved the country a great deal adding that Youth should always respect the former bush warfighters for the role they played during the liberation struggle.
Capt. Sula on several occasions shed tears as he narrated the suffering that his area went through as they were being terrorized by Uganda People’s Congress members during Obote’s government.
“During Amin’s time, soldiers would invade a house, rape women and defile children as the head of the family watches. They would sometimes ask you to clap for them as they enjoyed,” Capt. Sserunjogi narrated to the audience as tears flowed on his cheeks as he reminisced the disturbing stories.
