KAMPALA – Ugandan musician turned politician, Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine has responded to allegations of ‘political opportunism’ made by Church leaders, saying when he addresses issues affecting God’s people in the country, he is equivalently doing the work of God.
A few days ago some Church leaders came out through various media platforms and accused Bobi Wine for “distorting and manipulating” a Christian hymn in an attempt to maintain political support, and increase political influence.
Addressing media on Monday, Bobi Wine said he is surprised, yet disappointed at the same time that Church leaders “want to silence his voice.”
“The work that I do is not my own – The matters I address in order to see improvement in the lives of God’s people, and for them to come out of oppression – I am doing God’s work,”
“It should be remembered that people we take a leaf from like Martin Luther King Jr used religious songs like “we shall over come” as they decampaigned slave trade and oppression among the blacks,”
Bobi Wine told media reporters the condition Ugandans are in today require’s God’s intervention, and that it is songs like ‘Tuliyambala Enjule’ that inspire many.
“Even President Museveni himself, while in the bush often used Church songs to stay encouraged. Men we believe in like Kwame Nkrumah, quoted bible verses saying; seek yea the political kingdom first and the rest shall be taken care of,”
Bobi Wine asserted that Church leaders should not condemn him for saying Ugandans will wear the victory crown after winning the struggle against corruption, dictatorship, embezzlement of funds and land grabbing among others.
“It is not a crime,” Bobi Wine emphasised. “I think our Pastors, with all due respect, should look at the oppression Ugandans are facing. They should condemn the prevailing injustice.”
“I am very discouraged when our Church leaders see the rampant women murders, corruption and injustice and stay silent. Then later, they have the courage to come out and then fight someone who stands up to fight that prevailing condition,” he said.
“This is hypocritical. It is very wrong, they should change,” he added.
