“What is it that young Ugandans, the majority of the country, 80 percent of the country are under 35 years old. What are they yearning for? What do they want, beyond the obvious freedom?” Amanpour asked.
“Young Ugandans are yearning for freedom of speech, for freedom of expression. They are yearning for basic human rights. They are yearning for life to live…Young Ugandans believe that they are first world brains stuck in a third world country…We have third world leaders. Young Ugandans are yearning for democracy. They are yearning for their voices to be heard. They want to speak and be heard. They want a right to determine their destiny. They feel like they are being owned, they feel like they are being enslaved in their own land. They want democracy in the real sense of the word.” Answered Bobi Wine.
On Al Jazeera, Andrew Mwenda was leveled by NUP spokesperson Joel Senyonyi and African Feminism Editor Rosebell Kagumire as he tried to unleash lies on an international live stream.
The National Unity Platform might soon become an international unity platform. The people power is traversing the world.
