Opposition strongman and leader of the National Unity Platform (NUP), Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, has disclosed that some of the MPs who subscribe to the party he leads work with President Yoweri Museveni.
Bobi Wine made this revelation during his interview on the BBC. On Tuesday, the NUP leader arrived in England for the first time in about ten years.
Bobi Wine last stepped into London in 2014 when he was denied a UK visa over “controversial anti-gay lyrics” in one of his songs.
Speaking during an interview on the BBC, Bobi Wine was asked what had changed about his stand on homosexuality.
“I took responsibility. We grow and transform,” he said.
When asked about why NUP MPs voted in favor of the Anti-Homosexuality bill that was assented to by President Museveni this year, he said, “It was brought targeting the opposition. I have MPs working with Museveni.”
Bobi Wine is in the United Kingdom to promote his documentary titled “Bobi Wine: Ghetto President,” which traces his journey from growing up in a Kampala slum to challenging President Yoweri Museveni. The documentary was directed by British filmmaker Christopher Sharp.
