Bobby Wine’s followers swim through a swamp to attend his rally
Ugandan musician and politician fan’s cross a swamp to attend his rally
Scene like a movie
Like a movie-scene, armed police officers could be seen positioned deliberately on the road-block. They were set to battle with anyone who dared come close to the road-blocks. On the other hand, Wine followers were captured sailing across the soupy fields to the location.
As the officers waited nervously for the impending war to unfold, they were shocked to discover later that the political supporters had already made it across the swamp to the site.
Bobby Wine teargassed
He addressed a reasonably large crowd. He vowed to fix the problems facing sugarcane producers and young people if elected the country’s next head of state.
Prior to the Mayegu protest, his vehicle had been teargassed by law enforcement officers who were attempting to disrupt his followers who were marching to his campaign site in Mbale.
The young leader has been exposed to a great deal of bullying by intelligence officers in Uganda and has been detained many times.
