Bobi Wine statement:
I once warned that a time will come when the people start leading themselves instead of following politicians, infact it will be the people leading and the politicians following.
This will mark the end of the Museveni regime.
Dictatorships survive by buying off the leaders of the oppressed people. This time the people will be too many to buy off.
