Barely a fortnight after the partisan pro-Museveni police confiscated a beautifully decorated banner of NUP presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine, the change yearning traders of Kikuubo have once again reinstalled another bigger one to prove their love for Museveni’s youthful challenger.

In mid September, we reported a story about a police brawl between merry making National Unity Platform party supporters and the Uganda police force where the latter tried to violently block a pro-Bobi Wine music fete. The scuffle ended with the confiscation of a music amplifier that was playing Bobi’s revolutionary music and the gigantic banner of the presidential hopeful was also confiscated and apparently kept at Mini price police post in downtown Kampala.

Our curious reporter today spent a greater part of his day in the narrow corridors of Kikuubo where the traders dealing in different merchandise were fundraising to replace their street gigantic banner of their endeared presidential candidate, Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine. The drive successfully amassed the required amount and the banner was reinstalled to its exact position where it had been before police angrily took it away. By the time our reporter was leaving, traders were ferrying in bouquets of roses to decorate the gigantic Bobi Wine banner. “Loving Bobi Wine is not a crime. We shall fundraise countless times till police stops being partisan. Why do they force us to support Museveni?,” asks a one Nalule Alice, a trader in Kikuubo. “Loving Bobi Wine is not a crime. Let them kill us for loving him but nothing shall stop us from supporting him,” she adds.

The traders have also vowed to fundraise for another music amplifier that will routinely occupy their evenings with revolutionary Bobi Wine music. “Actually, our savings are yet to make the required amount. By Sunday, we shall have another music amplifier,” reveals Kiwanuka, a street hawker at Namirembe road.
