Veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda has spoken out about the ugly scenes that ensued at Cricket Oval, Lugogo on Friday evening where Bebe Cool faced the wrath of the ‘People Power’ movement as he was pelted with bottles, stones and booed off stage.
In a Facebook post, Andrew Mwenda says Bobi Wine’s supporters finally hang their dirty linen for all to see.
“I have been warning that Bobi Wine leads a group of radical extremists who are anti-democratic, intolerant and violent. His large army of supporters and apologists have accused me of bias an exaggeration. On Friday, their true colours were on display for all to see”, his post read in part.
He stated that incase Bobi Wine becomes president, his reign will akin to that of Adolf Hitler.
“If Bobi Wine supporters can exhibit such intolerance and use such violence against opponents even without the repressive power of the state, what will they do when finally they get power. As I have said, again and again, the only government Bobi Wine and his supporters can preside over Uganda is a tyranny akin to that of Adolf Hitler in Germany. But most critically for the government, these hooligans will not stop their terror unless they are stopped”, he concluded.
Singer Bebe Cool has since announced that he will not be making public appearances until the political tension calms down.
