Fred Nyanzi Ssentamu, one of Bobi Wine’s elder brothers have written an open letter to President Museveni about the arrest, detention and charging of his brother.
Nyanzi who says he’s the National Coordinator, People Power, says the biggest mistake President Museveni has made since taking over power 32 years ago is failure to nurture future young leaders.
Nyanzi says that his brother grew up in Museveni’s regime and that he is froma humble background which has made him obedient and a responsible citizen.
“Hon. Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi is a young man born in a humble family like you. He grew up in your regime, in a less privileged society and has risen through the ranks in a hard was just like majority of Ugandans,” says Nyanzi in the letter to the President.
Nyanzi who says he was a member of President Museveni’s national task force in the 2016 elections alleges that injustices will force more people to quit the party like Nyanzi himself did.
“Mr President, I personally was not only a member of NRM, but one of your national task force members in the recently concluded general elections without arrogating me to be a prophet, what forced me to leave the party shall make many more leave if this injustice continues. It’s therefore far-fetched to think that the arrests, torture and detention of People Power Leaders shall stop us from pursuing change and justice,” says Nyanzi in the letter also copied to the Speaker of Parliament and Chief Justice.
