The Kyadondo East constituency by-election brought back former Fire Base Crew member Buchaman after he was seen performing for the people who had gathered at Wampewo grounds where one of the contenders in this race FDC’s Apollo Kantinti held his campaign rally recently.
However, as Bucha performed, he told the crowd that they shouldn’t fall for what he termed as Bobi Wine’s ‘smooth talk’ and on top of that, he called him a ‘conman’ who is just interested in money. We don’t know whether these words were meant to kill Bobi Wine’s support base or did Bucha just say them because of his personal differences with Bobi.
Well, The Ghetto president who has been silent since then over the weekend fired back at Buchaman who was formerly his right hand man although he toned it down.
“When a person becomes too annoyed, they can make very many mistakes and in fact if a person is in too much fear, he can also make more mistakes. Uganda’s politics got messed up and all politicians do is to abuse themselves but it’s not what I have come to do. When a person contests in a race, I can’t go looking for people he owes.” Bobi Wine said while speaking on Super FM’s Wolokoso programme hosted by Kapalaga Baibe over the weekend.
Ever since Buchaman quit Fire Base over claims of exploitation, he and Bobi Wine have been at logger heads and probably Buchaman who has spent a long time without making any public appearances like on shows, he used that opportunity to bash his rival Bobi as a come back.
“I last met Buchaman 9 years ago and I saw him again at Kantinti’s rally abusing Bobi Wine. So if my contender has failed to tell people his manifesto and instead calls on Bucha Man who even had khat (locally known as mayirungi) in the mouth is something we laugh off but it also a pity.” Bobi Wine added.
