I don’t like Bobi Wine for disrespecting Museveni, says Balaam

Renowned city events promoter, Balaam Barugahara has said his beef with singer-turned-politician MP Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine is because the latter disrespects President Museveni.

Balaam described the Kyadondo East MP as his personal friend but said they differ on ideological grounds.

“Bobi Wine is my personal friend but we differ in political ideology. But I always tell him, his disrespectful to the president by referring to him as akasajja ako and etc. All I require of president Museveni is to fight poverty before he retires,” Balaam said in an interview with Capital FM during the Capital Gang show hosted by Oscar Musoke on Saturday.

When asked whether his love for Mr Museveni who has been in power for over 30 years is not because of the fact that he receives hefty payments to organize the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party events, Balaam said he has been supporting the ruling government since his childhood.

“I am a patriotic Ugandan, I have a national ID. I have seen the achievements of NRM since I was a child. Also, the NRM gives me those deals after competing for them with other events organisers through bidding,” he said.

On registering People Power, a political movement spearheaded by Bobi Wine as NGO to support the elderly, Balaam dismissed the reports as false.

According to him, People Power was registered by People’s Meritocracy Party, a political party that has been traversing the country for the last two years canvassing for support ahead of the 2021 general elections.

“I don’t own people power. It has been registered by a party called People’s Meritocracy Party. I don’t know where that party is but they sent me copy of the letter asking me never to tamper with the People Power slogan or use the color red among others,” he said.
