Bobi Wine statement

I have learned about the arrest of our Secretary General David Lewis Rubongoya and his driver on some bogus charges of threatening violence in the recently concluded by election of Omoro.
For me it’s not surprising. The Museveni regime, like all dictatorships, thinks it will weaken and subdue us by intimidation and harassment.
Hang in there comrades, it will be well.
