Ghetto president Bobi Wine took some time off his busy schedule yesterday to visit FDC leader Kizza Besigye who is apprehended at Luzira upper prison.
In a statement he shared with his fans, the singer called for the release of Kizza Besigye and further went to reveal what he discussed with the opposition leader,
‘We talked extensively about the state of affairs in our country. He said “once you decide to stand up and oppose an oppressive regime,you will always have two homes,your real home and prison, but that should never break your spirit and quest for freedom and justice. It’s not a matter of what political party or affiliation you belong to. We all have a collective responsibility to liberate our motherland,’ he said before going on to share a blast from the past that Besigye shared with him, ‘I was a young medical doctor in my twenties when I decided join the struggle to liberate Uganda in 1982.’
Besigye’s message was also a call to youth to stand up for their rights, ‘So it’s upon you the young people of this generation to get up and offer leadership.This is not a one man struggle that should start on the top downwards, but rather from the grassroots upwards, the Sema singer further revealed.
The FDC leader was arrested in May on the eve of President Museveni’s inauguration and hasn’t been released ever since.
