A few days after the Kyaunga by-election, the Politician who at the same time doubles as a musician Bobi wine has come out to release a new song titles ‘Ogenda’.
He says that the song is made directly his heart talking about the current situation caused about by the ruling government.
“Ogenda” is a Luganda word that is loosely translated as “You’re Going.”
The new song is mainly stinging President Yoweri Museveni entitled who he says has turned back on his word to bring democracy to the country.
“My new song #Ogenda is sent directly to Museveni,” Bobi Wine said in a tweet.
The National Unity Platform (NUP) president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu further went on to remember his many friends and associates whose deaths he claims were brought about by state agents under President Museveni’s control.
“President Museveni has been abusing power since he ascended to the highest office in January 1986. President Museveni’s government the National Resistance Movement (NRM) has overseen worse human rights abuses than the leaders it fought to oust.” Bobi Wine said in the song.
The song, released with a video, juxtaposes clips of a young Museveni charismatically promising a fundamental change to Uganda in 1986 with scenes of UPDF soldiers dragging civilians off vehicles. Some of the civilians are being beaten or bleeding profusely.
“Many previous Ugandan leaders like Idi Amin Dada (1971-1978) ignored warnings from singers and other voices about the wrongs they were perpetuating on the nation only to fall from power shortly after.” He added on in the Ogenda song.
He reveals that the song was inspired by the late Christopher Ssebaduka, who was a Kadongo Kamu artiste.
Bobi Wine released the song on Monday on his personal YouTube page as well as the National Unity Platform channel.
The song has since gone viral on other platforms like Facebook, Twitter and TikTok.
