Former presidential press secretary and self professed head of MISO, Joseph Tamale Mirundi has hailed the People Power principal, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu over the formation of the National Unity Platform.
Speaking today on Pearl FM at the political programme dubbed, ‘The Patriot’ Mirundi commended Bobi Wine for creating NUP as he stresses that this is the only way he will ably sieve out who he terms as opportunists. “There are a lot of opportunists who wanted to jump on People Power and use it as a means of claiming parliament seats,” Mirundi said. “You cannot be DP and at the same time People Power. You have to choose one. The buttocks cannot all sit on one side,” he added.
“Bobi Wine is still a young man with a bright political future. I’ve written a detailed book about his rise. He is a lucky man. I prefer him over Chameleone or any other artiste. He has beat all odds to reach the peak,” Mirundi further said. “He is such a smart man upstairs. At least with a structure NUP, he can now ably have the allegiance of his candidates. Opportunists won’t have a chance anymore,” he added.
According to Mirundi, Bobi Wine’s crowds are natural and unlike Besigye, he commands great support among the youths. “Bobi Wine is a lucky politician right from when he rose to prominence. He defeated Museveni and Besigye in Kyadondo. People just love him without giving them a single coin,” Mirundi said. “Bobi Wine is a ghost, he came up with a slogan dubbed People Power. You can’t fight a slogan and win,” Mirundi further added.
