Pop star turned politician Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine has called on Ugandans to renew their commitment to struggle to “truly free” Uganda as the country celebrates its 56 years of Independence from British rule.
Uganda on Tuesday commemorated its Independence anniversary with national celebrations held in Kyotera District in the central region.
In his Independence message, the Kyodondo East MP said: “We are the grandchildren of the independence generation and yes, the grandparents of the future generations. We must, within ourselves, find solutions since our leaders don’t care for the next generation but instead care for the next general election.”
Bobi Wine, who was born 20 years after independence, further noted that Uganda’s journey has been of joys and sorrows.
“Hopes and disappointments. Achievements and failures. As we commemorate this day, may we make a new commitment to soldier on day by day, step by step, until Uganda is truly free,” he added in a message he shared on his social media platforms.
