Defiant Makerere university students have strongly dispelled the position of the Barnabas Nawangwe administration which on Tuesday afternoon in a Facebook statement congratulated Gen. Yoweri Museveni as head of state. The disgruntled students and alumni of the premier Ugandan university thronged the comments section of the post and roasted the administration for acting partisan by congratulating a person who they know has raped all institutions of democracy.
However, students who believe that Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine, a pop star turned politician won the 2021 general elections opted to hold a parallel inauguration ceremony in which they declared the generational leader, as the official president elect of the Republic of Uganda.
The parallel inauguration went uninterrupted as security feared the might of students was to prevail and worse scenes would be created. “We all know it was Hon. Kyagulanyi who won these elections,” Ssegujja, a student present at the parallel inauguration retorted. “We will not take part in the misrule mired with corruption, conflicts, unemployment and impunity. We’ve been born under one president. We are not ready to die under him,” another student we won’t mention for security reasons remarked.
The students vowed to recognize the leadership of Hon. Kyagulanyi as the legitimate president of the Republic of Uganda.
