Bobi Wine Sets Foot In London After 10 Years

The leader of the National Unity Platform, Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has finally set foot in London for the first time in 10 years. Kyagulanyi in 2014 was slapped with a travel ban to the UK.

This is after it was deemed that his song Burn Dem had homophobic lyrics. And it incited violence against homosexuals.

The former MP missed a lot of activities in the UK both from the time he was still an active musician to just recently when he became a mainstream politician.

It, however, now seems his stance about the matter seems to have softened hence the ban being lifted. A few months ago, he expressed excitement through his X page on how the ban had been lifted.

Consequently, he traveled to the UK yesterday and shared the news via his social media pages. He posted on his X page saying “London, it’s been 10 long years!.”

Meanwhile, the nature of his visit to the UK is yet to be ascertained. However, he has been to several European countries and North America. He seems to enjoy widespread support from both Ugandans there and politicians in those countries.

It should also be recalled that in August, he missed the premiere of his film, The People’s President which took place in England.

Several of his supporters took to his social media pages to congratulate him over this achievement. They believe that it will be key in helping them emancipate themselves from the current regime.

Some people also called him a coward because they believe he went against the beliefs that he expressed in his songs.

He apparently chickened out on them just to be in the good books of the UK government and LGBTQ community.

A few Ugandans claiming to be homosexuals have recently fled to the UK, some of these being renowned. They include former comedian, Kele Kele, TikToker Arthur Kayima and musician Rhoda K.
