Bobi Wine’s popularity multiplied by two after he was elected as Kyadondo East Constituency MP a few months ago. After that, the artiste is now the talk almost every day. Having successfully concluded his Eastern Uganda music tour, earlier this week he flew to USA where he went to attend the ongoing annual Global Citizens Week at New York City’s Central Park.
Apart from just attending, Bobi Wine was among the eminent speakers who addressed the attendees on different aspects aimed to promote activism and give world leaders a clear and compelling mandate to commit to ending extreme poverty by 2030.
Bobi Wine who was introduced by rapper French Montana who was also among the speakers shared his experience of growing up in the Ghettos of Kamwokya with all the problems associated with it before he talked about ‘health Care in Uganda’
“Uganda has made some progress in improving maternal and child health care over the recent years but there is a lot still that must be done. Growing up in the ghettos of Kamwokya, Kampala, I was a victim of the problems which our predominantly poor people face including a broken health care system. When I became a musician, I decided to use my music to champion the causes that would improve the health care system.” Bobi narrated
Attendees cheered him on as he spoke out his speech without forgetting how they screamed loud when he announced that he was elected into the Ugandan 10th parliament a few months ago. He concluded his speech with a pledge where he promised to hold the Ugandan government accountable and ensure it delivers the promised better health care to all citizens
“I want to announce to all of you that I am 100% committed to championing this issue on the front line .I will use my position as an elected leader to hold government accountable and ensure that it fulfils the promise to deliver better health care to all Ugandans. Uganda Spends under 6.2% and this speaks of low priorities. When I return to Uganda, I will raise the issue of maternal and child health care on the floor of parliament.” Concluded Bobi Wine
