Singer turned activist Bobi Wine has appreciated how Kenyans supported him in his recent fight for Ugandans. The Kyadondo East MP landed in Kenya on his way back to Uganda and got a massive welcome from Kenyans recently.
He was coming from the US where he had gone for treatment after the government of Uganda tortured him. They also killed his driver.
The musician was later detained sparking off protests against his detention and torture on social media under the hashtag #freebobiwine and offline demos in Uganda as well as Busia and Nairobi in Kenya.
In his statement message, he thanked Kenyans for supporting him through all that tough period.
“I will quickly remind you about our Swahili speaking brothers across Africa who stood with us. In a special way, I would like to appreciate the Kenyan brothers and sisters. The Kenyan legislators who stood with us, the Kenyan artistes and the Kenyan writers. That was a reminder that you have always stood with us all throughout history but am glad that you are still standing with us even at this defining point in our history as Ugandans,” Bobi said during a press conference in Uganda.
