Former senior presidential advisor on media, Joseph Tamale Mirundi has condemned the police institution for their persistent blockades of Bobi’s presidential consultative meeting.
While appearing on the Top Radio airwaves Mirundi said Bobi Wine is already a ‘slogan’ that cannot be stopped. ‘There’s no idea that is strong enough to stop someone whose time has come. The government is now playing in Bobi Wine’s tricks,’ Mirundi said. ‘Bobi Wine does not need to carry out consultations because his name is already a slogan,’ he added. Mirundi also lauds the name ‘Bobi Wine’ to be a big selling brand. He stresses that the more police keeps on frustrating him, the more he is promoted to the public and in the process draw more public sympathy.
He further blames the government for making mistakes in the Bobi Wine script. ‘The biggest mistake was to underestimate Bobi Wine in the first place. Even whites are wondering which type or young man is shaking president Museveni,’ Mirundi told the moderator. ‘The world is full of people who are like Bobi Wine, they are always underestimated at first. The best example is Uhuru Kenyatta. They underestimated him that he is a drunkard,’ Mirundi added. Mirundi relates Bobi’s rise to Uhuru’s who he says currently ranks among Africa’s best statesmen just like Bobi who’s winning foreign accolades.
‘Foolish people underestimated Bobi Wine but Museveni never did so. He knows the strength of this boy because he was once like him,’ Mirundi further said.
